I'm not a devout Christian, but when I hear a question like this, I can only think of one thing.
Jesus' parable of the 11th hour.
As the story goes, a farmer finds three men to work in his field, for a 12 hour day. He finds one at the first hour, one at the sixth hour, and one at
the eleventh hour.
At the end of the day, he pays them all an equal wage. When the first man complains, the farmer responds by telling the man that it's his money, and
he'll pay how he likes.
Now the intent of this story is to illustrate that it's almost never too late to find God. He rewards all in the same fashion, and loves everyone
equally. In the eyes of God, GradyPhilpott and myself are equal, as is an unnamed serial killer off the street. We'd all do well to remember that in
the eyes of God, EVERYONE is equal.
