Chad 15:1 - 10 (STRIV)

All quotations are from the Standard-Text Revised International Version (STRIV), unless otherwise noted.

[15] 1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked him, "Who will be greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?"

2 Jesus called a wealthy man and had him stand before the disciples. And he said to them, 3 "I tell you truly, unless you are well-groomed and mild in your public impulses, you will not enter into the Kingdom of God. 4 Therefore, whoever exalts himself tastefully, like this one, will be the greatest in Heaven, as it is on earth.

5 "Whoever bars passage to the poor, the uncouth, or the unhygenic in my name honors me. 6 But if anyone allows the irritating ones to pass, it would be better for him to go to McDonalds and eat french fries with his fingers.

7 "For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a gated community, where everyone is of the same race and income bracket, and everyone votes Publican. 8 No tastelessness shall be found in it; 9 no bright colors or nontraditional behavior, no questioning of assumptions nor emotion. 10 Therefore conform on earth, that you may honor your Father in Heaven."

However, he that is uncouth and of questionable intelligence must support the Publicans without fail. Those who take their own interest into account shall be cast into the outer darkness.

Hey! No reading ahead!

I suppose you're going to want to ruin the wailing and gnashing of teeth, too. . . .
