Standardized testing at the pearly gates?

Seen this morning on a church reader board:

Have you read my bestseller. There will be a test.

I wasn't aware that literacy was a prerequisite to eternal life in the company of the Christian god(s).

I'm also curious about whether St. Peter grades on a curve...

Who is St. Peter and why is he doing the grading?

Alasdair said...

He'd be the one to whom Jesus is said to have given the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. That'd be why he's the guy featured in all the jokes that go: "So, a Swede, a Scot and a Norwegian arrive at the gates of Heaven, and St. Peter says..."

Here's a great quote from the wikipedia entry:

If God is a DJ, and Heaven's a dance floor, St. Peter would be the bouncer.

Ah, I see. I just wanted to know what his qualifications are!
