A Rich Man's Decision - Lesson from a Joke

A rich man died and immediate found his soul at the gate of heaven. The angel at the gate told him, “Now you are dead and you are here for judgment. You didn’t serve God well with all your heart, but because of all the great and good effort you made for humanity when you were alive, I will give you uncommon privilege. You have the chance to choose where you want to go, hell or heaven.” The rich man said the angel should allow him to see both before he could make a choice, and he asked the angel to first take him to see hell. 

The angel took the rich man to hell and behold, beautiful ladies wearing swimming kits, dancing and having fun with glasses of wine in their hands. Then the angel took him to heaven, there he saw angels singing hymns and praises to God. So the angel asked the rich man to make a choice. The rich man said, “I will prefer hell, it is fun and more exciting there, let me go to hell” Then the angel said, “According to your decision.”

The rich man was thrown into hell, and to his greatest surprise he found himself in the flame of fire and furnace raining upon him with demons ready to torment him for ever. The rich man cried to the angel, “What happened? What about those beautiful girls having fun I saw here before?” The holy angel replied, “What you saw then was just a screensaver”

This a joke, because Hebrews 9:27 says, "Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment ", because no choice or repentance after death, it is judgment. But this shows how Satan deceives people with the things of this world. 

Matthew 16: 26 says, “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”
