True Love, and How It Ruined My Credit Rating

When we go to buy a house, the bank runs a credit report to decide whether we’re worthy of our loan. And if there are errors, it’s up to us to correct them.

When we die, God supposedly does the same thing. He takes a look at our history to decide whether we go to Heaven or Hell. But what if there’s an error there?

It’s difficult enough to convince a credit reporting agency that we really did pay that doctor bill. But what happens when we have to convince God that mistakes were made?
