What If You Wanted to Go to Heaven, But God Said
What if you wanted to go to heaven but God said refers to a four panel cringe image macro of a boy, asking the titular question, then proceeding with “nahh, remember when you kept scrolling?”.
The format became popular online, due to the many reiterations and modifications of the last panel, often appearing as a deep fried meme.
The first instance of a similar meme was posted to the r/terriblefacebookmemes subreddit in 2016.
This version would be later forgotten, replaced by a version, depicting an older boy on the panels, with similar captions.
One of the earliest version of the “what if you wanted to go to heaven but God said” meme was uploaded to Instagram by damnyworsnop on April 29th, 2017.
Spread and Usage
The meme would quickly be turned into a deep fried sensation, often featuring or referencing popular shitposts of 2017.
It would often appear on subreddits such as r/me_irl or r/deepfriedmemes.
