“If we are going to Hell, we might as well enjoy the fall”…

Is he still a good person…
If Jesus is not in his heart…
If he doesn’t believe in religion…
And he didn’t agree from the start…

Does it mean that he is a Devil…
Someone to be despised…
And considered a mortal horror…
When viewed through someone else’s eyes…

Is he going to be banned from heaven…
The place we all should aspire to…
Will the spirit elevator just take him down…
To the basement below level two…

Is he destined to walk the Earth forever…
Because no one will take his soul in…
Should he start to hedge his bets…
And perhaps let one of them win…

Does it mean that his soul is branded…
As simply not a worthy man…
Because he won’t get on his knees…
And shout “God, I’m your biggest fan”

And even if that’s what he did…
Which God would want him the most…
So many of them to choose from…
And he’s lacking a quiz show host…

If he sits and asks for forgiveness…
Beg to be cleansed of his sins…
Confess all his crimes on a night time…
Perhaps one of them may let him in…

He’s got time to figure this out…
But only God knows just how long…
As the end is getting closer…
Will God tell him if he calls it wrong…

Because religion doesn’t inspire him…
It looks like a cult for the damned…
There are ones that abuse its children…
And others who blow up their men…

Some people will knock on his door…
And tell him about this mythical being…
What do they know that he doesn’t…
What does he miss that they’re seeing…

So please, is he still a good person…
If Jesus doesn’t enter his heart…
If he doesn’t buy into religion…
By the time he is due to depart…

  1. I think about this a lot. I know that every thing we think we know about God came from a man and none of us is perfect nor divine. I’ll keep trying to do more good than harm because what else can I do that really matters?

  2. Questions I’ve always asked myself. Far from religious but still extremely spiritual. My belief shouldn’t define me, when my morals have always been to do good. Great post thanks for sharing.

      • You do realize what my blog is, right? 🙂

        But in a nutshell, I can tell you this. As I travel on my spiritual journey, as a Christian, I realize that I learn something new each day. I have come to the understanding that Jesus Christ did not walk on this earth, and taught what He did…lived the life He did…..and die on the Cross, for the sake of establishing a RELIGION; but to show us a way of life, that exemplifies what God, the Creator of all the Universe, expects of Mankind.A way of life that is of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy. We’re given this choice, everyday….with the life circumstances given to us.Some of us may have it harder, than others…but God’s Unconditional Love is equal for all. A surrendering of our faults and flaws, is recognition of our weaknesses; but at the same time, recognizing that by shedding His Blood on Calvary, the unconditional love God has for Mankind. God loves ALL of Mankind, to give all of us a choice to chose His Ways of Life. Jesus Christ died for ALL of Mankind, so that they can have this choice. Out of this love, He forgives. But as Jesus said, with every person He performed a miracle on….”You are healed, now sin no more.” I can go on and on this! Out of this unconditional love, this is why Jesus Christ pleaded on behalf of Mankind…”Abba, forgive them.For they know not what they do.”

        Sorry if this ended up being a theological comment. So, I’ll end it here. Hit me up at my email, if you want to talk some more, my friend 🙂 Cheers!

      • Thanks and yes and apologies never required! I read lots on the subject, facinated by others views and envious of others faiths to some degree, baffled by others. But I’m still learning and gaining insight – not commited but open minded if that makes any confused sense! Thanks for your insight – food for thought! Cheers J

  3. 1 John 5:11,12
    And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

  4. You bring up really important points re. religion and God! I applaud your authenticity! Faith is a highly personal thing and no one has the right to judge another. We don’t know what goes on in the hearts of our fellows. I am a religious person, always have been but I know that I can’t judge any one. I personally don’t believe in hell except as a state of being here on earth, meaning far from God. Well, I’ve gone on too long. I really lie your writing!

    • Thank you for a thought provking comment, Hell on Earth is a line I borrowed for a poem, maybe stole actually, can’t recall which one it was in – will maybe go back and link it – am glad you like my stuff – hope you found others of interest – Cheers J

  5. First – the poem was amazing, as always. Second, really enjoyed the video and Third … I am one of the most spiritual people you might ever cross paths with – I believe in countless dimensions, life before and after this life – a body concealing a spirit, eternal life, universal consciousness, guides and the list goes on and on and on and on – literally – and it began in childhood. However, I do NOT follow or believe in any religion at all – I do not prayer to Jesus (though I respect the beliefs of everyone and will always) – I know someone or something is running this show – who or what it is I’m unsure of – sometimes I call it God, other times “the source” – but I’ll be darned if I would ever believe that if someone doesn’t believe in Jesus that they are going to have a wonderful experience here, as well as after they shed their skin and move forward. There’s only one thing that every single religion states the same “love” – so as far as I’m concerned, and I say this with deep belief, passion and conviction, if someone has a loving heart and is a good person, they have no chance of suffering after their experience here. My concept of hell, is along the lines of how you feel about yourself. You cause your own hell, be it while here, before here or after here. The brimstone and fires, etc., that’s all man-made and misinterpretation (my perception anyway). He’ll be fine! ❤
