I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp –
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics, and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade,
Who swiped  my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Bob, who I always thought
Was rotting away in Hell
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, “What’s the deal?
I would love to hear your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.”

“And why is everyone quiet?
So somber – give me aclue.”
“Hush, child,” he said.
“They’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.”

JUDGE NOT!

Please remember –
just going to church doesn’t make you a Christian

any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a past…
Every sinner has a future.
Now it’s your turn: share this poem.

I have to vent. I’ve got tons of questions on a touchy subject.

I’m sitting peacefully in my dorm room listening to the radio, when all of a sudden my celly walks in with not one but two different “Bibles” and quotes it for me about man sleeping with man are going to Hell in a Hand Basket.

I have now seen with my own eyes that at least two testaments give that false statement. First and foremost, I believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Fort two, he doesn’t judge me. I always ask for his forgiveness for my sins.

So, what am I missing? First of all, how many “versions” of the Bible are actually out there in 2010? I bet too many to count. I really would love some in sight on the gay issue! I believe in my heart that I am loved and protected by the Lord. What’s the truths? Everyone believes in something different. Why? How come?

Write to me people. I need some facts to debate with when someone especially who will not help me out here in jail. I know I believe in God! Love to hear any input!

xoxo Peace & Love,
