i want
to know about god,
which name
he would prefer to go by

i want to know
about the stairway
up to heaven,
and why sliding down
the bannister into hell
is much more fun

(think i tried to climb a step that wasn't there, think i might have died more than once)

I find it a bit disturbing, that several "Christians" have found their way to this poem to evangelize, ignoring others, because it mentioned God. Completely disregarding the poetic nature of said poem, and interpreting it to suit their aims.

well, it's a public forum, why are you disturbed by people being people? Christians are meant to evangelize, it's part of Christianity. what's disturbing about that, don't you know that about Christianity?

I'm a Christian, but I agree, yes, that is a little bit...rude of them.

According to God..."I AM that I AM.  Tell them I AM has sent you."

Ohhh dude.....
"why sliding down the bannister to hell is so much fun"? 
Cause it is so difficult to climb a NEVER ENDING stairway!

So true, and yet so sad

I just listen to a song in my head after reading this. About who god really is, how he would look. What his name would be and who whould call him. Maybe just the pope maybe none, perhaps it would be ringing constantly due to prayers. We will possibly never know.

Wouldn't you also like to know what His current occupation is, now that His seven days are up?
