I never read it in a book
I never saw it on a show
but I heard it in the alley
on a weird radio
if you want a drink of water
you got to get it from a well
if you want to get to heaven
you got to raise a little hell
-If You Wanna Get To Heaven (Ozark Mountain Daredevils)
When I was young, that song made the charts and was played a lot on the radio. It had some catchy lyrics that would stick in your head, especially the line, “if you want to get to heaven you got to raise a little hell.”
If you ask 10 people who believe in God, “How do you get to heaven” you would probably get several different answers.
Different religions believe in different paths to get to heaven.Most believe their way is the only way.
Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump has his own answer. He told a group of evangelical Christians recently:
“This will be an election that will go down in the history books and for evangelicals, for the Christians, for everybody, for everybody of religion, this will be maybe the most important election that our country has ever had,” said Trump.
“So go out and spread the word and once I get in, I will do my thing that I do very well. And I figure it’s probably maybe the only way I’m going to get to heaven. So I better do a good job. Okay? Thank you.”
So Trump seems to believe that the only way he’ll get to heaven is to be elected President and do a good job.
Some believe that Trump was joking, but politicians will say and do some interesting things to get elected.
