    Do Pets Go to Heaven?

    Dear Pastor,

    I am 8-years old and I am so sad now cause my dog, Scruffy is awfully sick. The pet doctor told my mom that Scruffy has only a few weeks to live because he has a bunch of cancers everwhere. The doctor told my mom that I am gonna see Scruffy when I get to heaven, but she told me that my doctor is not saved, so that I will write to you and ask you the real answer about Scruffy because you know.

    Pastor, I love Scruffy so much! I have been trying so much every day not to cry, but when I look at his eyes, he is so sad! My poor dog is in so much pain with his cancers. Is Scruffy going to go to Heaven, Pastor? Will I get to see him again?

    Dear Timmy,

    It always breaks my heart when I have to answer a question like this. I understand your concern, but I won't lie to you. According to the Bible, there will be no animals in heaven except for horses. And those horses, the book of Revelation tells us, will be used solely as a means of transportation. Scripture tells us that horses will sprout wings and be able to fly at high speeds. We'll fly too, Timmy, but the horses will probably fly faster, which is why Jesus is going to keep them around.

    As True Christians™, we can only speculate why God doesn't find it necessary to populate heaven with dogs, cats, cows, chickens and other creatures. Most likely it is because we won't need food when we get to Heaven. Using Bible logic, we have to assume that there are going to be a whole mess of folks in Hell and most of them will be Chinese, since they never had the luxury of hearing about Jesus. People in hell will need food to sustain them through an eternity of torture at the hands of the loving God they rejected. As we understand it, Chinese folks love to eat dogs. I'm sorry, Timmy - it is a hard sight to take in, but in a few weeks little Scruffy will be savagely ripped to shreds, as will countless other pooches, at the blood-stained hands of starving, godless Chinamen as they are beaten and sodomized by demons on the desolate shores of the Lake of Fire. My guess is that those shores will be piled high with the rotting, bone-picked carcasses of every household pet there ever was.

    I hope this helps.

    Your friend and Pastor,

    Deacon Fred



    Christian logic? :p

    if this is a true story it really makes me ill. When either of my children asked where our pets went when they died...I told them the Rainbow Bridge Story...much kinder I think.

    Heaven is a big place, I don't see why it isn't possible to have other animals there.

    The bible didn't say how all the other people got on the planet either when it came time for the offspring of Adam and Eve to marry, but by golly they went a traveling to find a wife didn't they? A sister would have been right there in the house if Eve gave birth to everyone.

    the Landover Baptist site is just a satire
    "Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true."

    According to the christians, I won't be going to heaven because I don't think there is a god much less do I accept that jesus is his son. But if dogs do go to heaven, would one of you faithful please look up my old pal Beau? Give his belly a nice scratchin'. He used to like it when I did that.

    This story was silly & cute & entirely believable until "friend & pastor deacon fred" took it into a tailspin. I am not that familiar with denominations, but I had no idea that deacon- do- boys are now considered pastors (wow, it really doesn't take much to be a pastor in some denominations, does it?).

    All kidding aside, my pet rock could have come up with a more intellectual version & believable story than that!
