How to get to the Celestial Kingdom

Recommended Posts

A Primary teacher was testing her class to see if they understood the concept of going to the Celestial Kingdom.

She asked them, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into the Celestial Kingdom?"

"NO!" the children answered.

"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into the Celestial Kingdom?"

Again, the answer was, "NO!"

Now she was smiling. Hey, they're getting it, she thought! "Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into the Celestial Kingdom?" she asked.

Again, they all answered, "NO!"

She was just bursting with pride for them. "Well," she continued, "then how can I get into the Celestial Kingdom?"

The youngest boy in the class shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD."

This isn't just an urban legend. My brother actually did this. The circumstances and exact words were a little different: it was sharing time, and there was no building-up or long preface. The question was posed: "What do you have to do to get to the Celestial Kingdom?" My brother (five or six at the time?) stood up and yelled (without raising his hand, of course), "You have to DIE!"
