The Word of God....On My Doorstep

Ok, so my doorbell rang yesterday and there were two girls maybe 14 or 15 years old wearing demure little ankle length skirts and windbreakers passing out fliers for their church. Fine. I 'm cool with that. I'm friendly to the talkative little girl and her silent little buddy who looks kind of scared to be knocking on strangers doors. Then, Chatty Cathy asks me to open up the flier and draw my attention to a very important question raised on the inside. It reads: "IF you died today would you go to Heaven??" The girl then says to me: "Do you know the answer to that question??", and proceeds to stare at me. Can you believe that?? Who in their right mind asks other people that question- especially a complete stranger? I was completely floored by this. I think I said, "You're kidding me right? I really don't know." But wait, it gets better. The girl then offers to come in and have a little talk with me about God in order to help me out . This girl was like 14 YEARS OLD. I wish I could have thought of something witty to say to these kids but I think I just stammered no thanks but thanks for stopping by. I absolutely couldn't believe it. Who does stuff like that? I'm quite comfortable with the state of my spirituality and I don't need a couple of teenagers with fliers about hell and brimstone to HELP ME OUT. Jesus Christ. :-)
