I really don't see why this merited so many down votes. It's moderately clever, and it'll compile to boot.

    Because, even if you're a believer, it would be better written as open YOUR_HEART ">to_Jesus" since both believers and non-believers die - it's just the former get to go to a nice place if they've been good.

    Because I don't like being told that I should die if I don't believe something. I don't tend to respond well to threats - and that's what it read like to me.

      "Because, even if you're a believer, it would be better written as open YOUR_HEART ">to_Jesus" since both believers and non-believers die - it's just the former get to go to a nice place if they've been good."

      Yes, open YOUR_HEART ">to_Jesus" or goto HELL; would've been better :)

      since both believers and non-believers die
      'death' has several dimensions, besides just dying physicaly, e.g.:
      • dying emotionaly
      • dying socialy
      • dying economicaly
      open YOUR_HEART ">Jesus" or die "emotionaly" || "socialy" || "economic +aly";
      Jesus changed my life before I died physically (obviously). It started with changing my heart; this made me more sensitive to the world around me; my social isolation decreased; I was poor as a youngster, earn well today and survived a recent lay-off wave.

      Many of these events were out of my control.

      The opposite of 'death' is 'life'. I became alive and a source of life for other people - through Jesus Christ. That's his message for everybody, e.g. to You. Knowing the difference, I don't want to return to my former way of living, which kept me more dead than alive.

      Jesus is a gentle one; so I'm not imposing anything upon you. But I thought you should know, at least. Sorry for sounding fanatic. I'll try learning from this feedback.
