No, you're just not the best salesman for the afterlife. If you worked solely on commission, you'd end up having to suck cock just to buy your expected child diapers.
I am a Non-Theist. I prefer Buddhism, which is more a way of life and conducting oneself than actually worshiping a god. And before the ignorant claim Buddha is a "God", I will remind you that he was the first person to achieve enlightenment and tried to teach others how to reach nirvana.
Much like Jesus, except Buddha was a mere man and nirvana referred to living in complete harmony and understanding (in the NOW) instead of a promise of eternal afterlife in Heaven.
