    That would be like believing that my good looks will get me in to Fantasy Island.

    As easy as it is to quantify either my good looks or my good deeds, the destinations remain imaginary.​

    Well, my ex already cursed me to hell so I'm just hoping for a lighter sentence. Maybe a googleplex fewer years?

    I was told that if I voted for Obama, I would get into Heaven.

    (Obviously, most Christians would answer "No" and they would be correct.)

    Faith not works.

    Though works follow faith.

    If you do good deeds to get into Heaven, you don't understand the concept.

    I do things for people in need because their plight moves Me to do so.

    I need no other reason.

    All atheists would answer "No" and they would also be correct.

    And remember

    No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.
