It has been said that "whoever is last shall be first, and the first, last."
A) Instead of, dropping a white stone from a great height to crash tragically when it hits bottom..
B) Beg the Rolling Stones, no matter HOW old they are, to perform yet ANOTHER world tour.
A) Instead of, declaring every single dollar of Robinhood's stash as countereit and giving it all back to the rich, yet again..
B) Sell everything you presently own, give it to the poor, and follow him as he has followed the one who sent him.
Z) Instead of filling one's own heart and soul with hatred for your own brother, sit down, relax, and enjoy a glass of your very best wine, with your
most hated enemy.

A) Instead of firing a silver bullet when all is said and done..
B) Enjoy an ice cold Coor's Light, and raise a toast to the fellowhood of man.
Z) While of course there is a need for hell in the final analysis, to avoid the "Great Wedding" (of the very worst kind), it's never a wise idea to
try to place the Best Man within its confine.
The Final Judgement
(my sincere apologies for the oversight, and the delay)
Seriously now, out of all fairness, I will happily go first before the just judgement of God, and this one is no joke, let me tell you!
Forgive me father God of the all in all, for I have sinned greviously, against you and against heaven. You know me better than I know myself and so
you know that my sins are many and various, in both severity, and negative impact on the health and wellness of your beloved world.
I am so very sorry, and please, even though I know you have already shown me your infinite mercy and kindness, for my own sins confessed to you
already, I ask you humbly, to bear in mind when judging my fellow man to be equally merciful and just, while also recognizing the nature of our worst
fears, and the degree to which we did not know what we were doing. Amen.
Prepare yourselves! The Judge Himself, personally, will be entering the courtroom at any moment, with both prosecuting and defence autorneys in
attendance. No bull! And he means business! But do not fear, too much, because he is the absolute height of the two great lights of BOTH justice AND
And if you are worried about jail time, like serious jail time, try to have more faith as I have in his mercy and do NOT fear him, AND if you do end
up going to prison when all is said and done, bear in mind that in the fullness of eternity, nothing is permanent, and that you will achieve release,
but only after having paid the very last penny of what you owed.
Trust in God, who's judgements are just and who's mercy runs very deep, as it would have to if it's come about that I've become the court attendee
opening the door to the courtroom.
Behold! The White Throne of the Living God!
Such things never happen by expectation - one minute you're on the golf course, enjoying a clear bright sunny day, and the next thing you know it,
they are performing an emergency quadriple bypass, the outcome, uncertain.
P.S. You are also entirely free to run away from the courthouse if you must, but do not be afraid, and recognize that for each one of us, our day will
come when such a judgement cannot be avoided.
Best of luck [stepping aside, the door ajar]
P.S. No one can steal for themselves God's own just judgement, or his vengeance. Me, I'm just a doorman or a messenger. Don't shoot the messenger!
That would not be fair! Not at all!
And please, for the love of God remember that even Darth Vader eventually recieved absolution.
Oh and FYI, I already promised to attend mass on Christmas day, in submission to all authority, both on earth, and in heaven above.
Btw, anyone got any tums, or better yet, rolaids?

Let vengeance be mine sayeth the Lord God Almighty.
