Give Me What I Deserve In The Next Life

When God judges me after I die, I hope He gives me what I deserve. I think most Jews have this attitude, but I’ve never met a Christian with this belief. They seem to all believe that they are horrible sinners.

I’ve done a lot of lousy stuff in my life, but nothing that I feel would condemn me to eternally burning hell fire. I want to get what I deserve. I want to feel all the needless pain I’ve dished out to others and I want to feel the joy I’ve brought them. I don’t want some divine savior on a cross to absorb all of my sin. I don’t want grace from God. I just want a fair accounting. I’ve always paid my taxes honestly and that’s what I want for my soul.

Bring it on, Lord, when my times comes.
