HEAVEN OR HELL By Frances M. McCrory-Meservy January 1987

I had been working for Lee over two years when he came in and told me he had an opportunity to make a lot of money. He said he wanted my opinion about whether he should do it or not. He told me about the venture and even though it would be legal, it was a little bit unethical and slightly immoral. I told him he should do it.

Shocked, he asked, "Fran youíre a Christian. How can you tell me to do that?"

I said, "Lee you are going to hell anyway because you donít believe in Jesus. So it doesnít make any difference what you do. You might as well get the most out of this life because this is all the Heaven you are ever going to see and Hell is yet to come.

I could not do that because I do trust Jesus, this is all the Hell I am ever going to see and Heaven is yet to come."

He sat down in a chair and said, "Iím going to have to think about that."

A week later he came in and told me he was reading his Bible and a week after that he told me he was going to church with his wife.  We moved shortly after that.

Luke 16:1-8 He also said to His disciples: "There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods. "So he called him and said to him, 'What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.

"Then the steward said within himself, 'What shall I do? For my master is taking the stewardship away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. 'I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.'

"So he called every one of his master's debtors to him, and said to the first, 'How much do you owe my master? "And he said, 'A hundred measures of oil.' So he said to him, 'Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.' "Then he said to another, 'And how much do you owe?' So he said, 'A hundred measures of wheat.' And he said to him, 'Take your bill, and write eighty.'

"So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in their generation than the sons of light.
