    Reminds me of a movie I once saw. Oh yeah, “Bus Stop”.

    Is that road paved with good intentions?

    I don’t really get this one, Len.

    Is it because the bus is full of partying children or was he just misled like so many?

    Maybe its because he’s already in heaven and the bus is going back where it came from ?
    (And the guy didn’t realize/appreciate heaven)

    It may be a comment on people who are depending on all the wrong things to get into Heaven. It’s not about us, it’s not about our “good works” or “clean living”—it’s about Him and our relationship with Him. The good works and clean living should be a response of gratitude and praise, not an attempt to make points with God or buy our salvation.

    I think you’re on the right track with your view of the comic. I would add that the passenger is misled by what he believes heaven and the people there will look like. Many people view heaven as a kind of retirement home place where all we do is party, party, party.

    The Pharisees criticized Jesus practice of eating with sinners. Jesus told them that a healthy man does not need a doctor but a sick man does which means Jesus is the doctor and he has come to save the sinners. I know that there will be folks in heaven that others are surprised to see and also folks not there that others expected to see.

    True, oh Tigdi. Perhaps also the “party bus” is a reference to the watered-down gospel taught in many places that says Christianity is a constant party, no trouble, nothing ever goes wrong…“like the Mona Lisa on Valium” as a British comedy writer once put it. Funny, that wasn’t the experience of the first believers…Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome the world.” He didn’t say, “In this world you will take it easy, and everything will be fine forever and ever.” If you spend much time on your knees, you’ll eventually get it in the neck, in today’s world.

    The most grown-up FSM-er is childish compared to a serious theologian.

    Coup de grace, actually.

    “…and leave the driving to us.” Nothing says FUN like a ride on a party bus.
