My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Well....That was interesting.

Well, that was interesting.  My little poll drew 11 comments from about 25 people solicited for comments.  When you only have 14 followers I guess that ain't bad.  Now that IS interesting!  I just used the word "ain't" which I was told in grammar school wasn't a word and it passed the spell checker.  I guess "ain't" the incorrect word of my day, ain't an incorrect word any more.  No wonder this country seems to be going to hell  in a hand basket.  Oh yes,  did you know "gay" no longer means happy and fun?  Nope, now it is a way for homosexuals to pass themselves off as... ah, "normal people"  Oh well enough of my pet peeves.  Oh ya, Spanish ain't spoken here 'cause it ain't the native language.  Neither is English.  I believe the native tongue of America is something like, Choctaw, Crow, Shawnee, Mingo (in my neck of the words), Blackfoot, or perhaps Sioux.  'Course that is just my humble opinion and only precious to me.

Back to my poll.  Thanks to all of you who voted, and double thanks to those of you who left comments.  You can  see the results but for those of you who wish to read them here are the numbers.

Total votes  11
Yes, Heaven is real  7
No, Spiritual only 1
Don't know 3

We had a total of 5 comments. All of the 5 said Heaven is real.  I really wish the "Don't knows" would have left comments but alas, they didn't.  That was where I was going for discussion the "No's and the Don't knows"  Just as a point of clarification, I would have voted yes.  You see, I believe.

Have a nice Sunday and as my Jewish, truck driving friend would say, Catch you on the flip side.  (He's a little strange, but I love him as Jesus told us to).  John 15:12

Shalom,
Pops

Well, sheesh. I thought for sure I left a comment on the original post. Of course it's a real place. God said so. Good enough for me.

I also think my pets will be there with me and there is no hard-core theology that says otherwise. I guess we'll all find out someday. Or not...

Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
