I was watching Fr. Richard Rojas journey home story on EWTN. He was a former Presbyterian pastor and Anglican priest who came home to the Catholic Church. At one point in his journey, someone asked him if God would let him into heaven if he showed up before him and what he would say to God when asked why he should let him in. These are good questions that force you to think. Evangelizers use such techniques to pique your interest. But if you are going to explore on your own anyway, I suggest absolutely the best and most effective way is to go directly to Christ, open yourself up, and tell him what you seek, what you desire, and everything else from your heart. Then you'll get fast answers from him if you remain humble and attentive. Remember that God is accessible and the direct track is always the fast track.
