The Quickest Way to Heaven

John Gano was a minister and itinerant preacher from the Philadelphia Association who visited the South frequently in the mid-18th century during the time of the French-Indian War.

From his diary:

A ferryman asked Gano the quickest way to heaven, perceiving him to be a minister. Gano writes,
"I told him Christ was the best way; and that he must become experimentally acquainted with Him, and believe in Him, which was the hope of glory. That after he had obtained this, the shortest way, that I knew, would be to place himself in the front of some army, in an engagement."
