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.

Herb, 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 so quiet,

So somber - give me a clue.'

'Hush, child,' He said, 'they're all in shock.

No one thought they'd be seeing you.'

JUDGE NOT!!!

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!!!

Outstanding!
That is the doggerel poem by Pastor David J. Nixon of Born That Way Ministries.

The personalities I've encountered on the site thus far make me now shocked to find someone promoting Pastor Nixon's work here. Wonderful stuff. :) Thank you. http://bornthatway.org/who-we-are/

I really do not remember where I got this, but it seems like he wrote it. I did check out the website and is refreshing to see a Pastor not asking for your money, but actually giving something for free and even allowing you to copy this pamphlet and distribute it for free.

That's good, because I was sort of wondering about that.

Very true. And a rarity in these last days.
They have a wonderful ministry that leads gender and sexually confused persons to the light. No judgment, no condemnation, just working and acting in The Word and The Love of Christ.

There is a thread discussion here that I'll share one of their articles with. I think it can help. We can all benefit from teachings that help us to navigate this worlds bumps and turns.
God Bless You. And thank you for sharing his work here.
The more that are inspired by the spirits leading the greater we all become as one church.
