A Call to Radical Discipleship by Bob Siegel

The following version of judgment day is nothing but science fiction. Unfortunately, this repulsive scene is implied by many of today's gospel presentations.

Two souls are standing before God. God turns to the first one and says; "Mr. Matthew's, you were a miserable, wretched sinner, rotten to the core. You do not deserve to enter my kingdom. But luckily you believed in Jesus. Now, all is well. Feel free to come in and congratulations."

Then He turns to Mr. Gallows, "Mr. Gallows, you too were a miserable, wretched sinner, rotten to the core. You do not deserve to enter my kingdom either and you know something? You won't. Because you did not believe in Jesus."

Is mere belief all there is to salvation? Could not Mr. Gallows bring up a valid defense?

"Let me get this right. My life style was no different than Mr. Matthews'. We were both sinners and Christ died for us both."

"Correct."

"And the only distinguishing mark is that he happened to believe and I was brought up in such a way that psychologically, belief in Jesus was difficult. Look, I believe now. If Christ died for me anyway, why not let me stay?"

"Sorry. You're already dead. It doesn't count anymore."

We mock our loving God with such hideous descriptions. God is reduced to nothing but an apathetic game show host. "You lost salvation , but we have lovely parting gifts for you."
