It was about noon and I was fixing bacon and eggs. The doorbell rang. My wife answered the door and there was a man and a woman standing there. They handed us a pamphlet and asked us if we had a church. I simply said "no." He then said, "It doesn’t really matter if you go to church." He continued, "The real question is, Are you 100% sure that you are going to heaven?" Now my bacon is starting to burn. So I said, "I don’t believe in heaven. I’m an atheist and I am cooking. She might be interested though." At that point I turned around and walked back into the kitchen. My wife said that as soon as I said that they started backing away looking a little shocked. The woman quietly asked my wife to come to church and they left. One more thing. I found a really cool website last night. You must go see what they have discovered at does-god-exist.org. Be sure to click on the links, especially the last one.
My doorbell rang and I opened the door to find two men in their 70’s or 80’s asking me to go to church with them. I thought, “Oh, this is my lucky day!” We chatted for about 15 minutes. I have to admit it was fun. The only problem I had with our interaction was that they kept telling me that they felt sorry for me. I was very nice. I never said anything offensive and I never attacked what they believed. They were very nice old guys. They kept telling me that I was going to hell. At one point one of them told me that I was not an atheist, because I could change my mind. Change my mind? I asked them if they could change their mind and not believe in god. They said they could not. They told me that when I died I would go to 1 of 2 places, heaven or hell. After explaining my theory of death, I told them that no matter what I did from now until I die, that I could not go to heaven. I told them that I had committed the only sin that would keep me out of heaven. Because I have watch a movie called “The God Who Wasn’t There” I know that if you deny the holy spirit you will not be forgiven. To make it public: I DENY THE HOLY SPIRIT! These guys told me that I would be forgiven anyways. So that I can stop rambling I will just tell you what they said last and my closing statement. They told me that they would pray for me and I said, “I will think for you.” I shook their hands and they left, but they still want me to go to church with them. It appeared that they only came to see me, because they parked in front of my apartment and when they left they did not knock on any other doors. They got in there car and left. There are many apartments here, not just mine. They gave me a brochure about their church, Silver Creek Baptist Church, and a little booklet called “Do You Know For Certain That You Have Eternal Life and That You Will Go To Heaven When You Die?” Just in case you are curious, I’m still an atheist! Good night.
