"You reach the afterlife, but before you find out where you'll end up, you have to watch the entire life of someone and decide where they should go. What you don't know is all of your memories have been wiped and it's your own life you're watching."

That's an interesting thought experiment.

I'm extremely critical of myself and very lenient toward others. I bend over backwards to give people the benefit of the doubt and I seek out reasons to respect them and appreciate how they contribute to the world.

Come to think of it, this is because I'm naive and I live in the cupcake generation. Dodgy

If my verdict is "heaven" then I will rob Justice.
If my verdict is "hell" then I will rob Mercy.


So, when I judge myself or anybody else, what should I rob "mercy" or "justice"

How about just recognizing reality? Mercy is the suspension of justice. If justice means to judge and act accordingly, why would one deny what is right and do the opposite?

why would you rob Mercy?

P.S. Thanks God it is not true. There is a way when both Justice and Mercy can be satisfied.
I choose both: Justice and Mercy.

RE: Heaven or Hell? You be the judge!
Is "to have Mercy on someone by robbing Justice" a right thing to do or a wrong thing to do?
Is "to bring Justice to someone by robbing Mercy" a right thing to do or a wrong thing to do?
and why?
Is Justice good?
Is Mercy good?

Justice and Mercy are not necessarily mutually exclusive.

There are other ways of delivering Justice then simply executing vengeance on the unjust. It is possible to be both just and merciful.

RE: Heaven or Hell? You be the judge!
I'd skip everything but the parts where I watched some good movies and tv shows... either way it better be in 3D and they should offer food while I watch it

my most heinous sins:
not giving a damn about religion
not giving a damn if someone gets butt hurt due to my atheism
playing videos games and enjoying the thrill of killing other players (I have more than 10,000 kills in planetside 2)
I ate shellfish because they are delicious and I will eat em again
indulging in junk food for the sake of it
and the occasional theft of the contents of the cookie jar
etc etc etc
