"This was the sticking point in my own little lame march to salvation: admission to heaven is gained by the luck of the draw. At age five I raised my good left hand in Sunday school and used a month's ration of words to point this problem out to Miss Betty Nagy. Getting born within earshot of a preacher, I reasoned, is entirely up to chance. Would Our Lord be such a hit-or-miss kind of Saviour as that? Would he realy condemn some children to eternal suffering just for the accident of a heathen birth, and reward others for a privilege they did nothing to earn?"
--Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible
