Confidential to Michael Bloomberg

If you think you "earn your place in heaven", you're not going. 
“I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed,” Bloomberg declared. “I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”


  1. No, Bloomie did't earn his place in heaven. He bought it (so he thinks).

    Wait until he finds out that he cannot influence legislation there.

  2. Oh dear, Bloomie's in for a nasty shock. The part where he freely admits The Lord's justice in damning him will be especially bitter, and that moment continues for a while. Eternity, actually. No, The Lord does not love everyone, else He would save everyone. His love saves, definetely, completely, selectively, eternally. A precious thing, not to be cheapened by "offering" it to everyone.

  3. I think the "if there is a God" pretty much excludes him from most Christian versions of heaven.

    My catechism didn't have the requirement of faith in Jesus, the Son of God (if the is a God) as the key to paradise...

  4. Of course, I was thinking of Ephesians 2:8&9. Don't have to tell you guys about that. Bloomberg, yeah. He clearly has no idea.

  5. To be fair, I think Bloomberg holds to some sort of Jewish belief, so St. Paul probably isn't going to convince him.

    But yeah, this is utterly misguided from any sort of Christian perspective.
