Mississippi Quote of the Day: Morgan Freeman on Getting Into Heaven

Morgan Freeman in Jerusalem
Morgan Freeman traveled to Jerusalem for the filming of the National Geographic documentary series, “The Story of God.”

Morgan Freeman may be best known for roles in movies like “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Unforgiven” and “Driving Miss Daisy,” but the Oscar-winning actor has explored interests far beyond Tinseltown.
Freeman hosts and narrates the cutting-edge Science Channel series, “Through the Wormhole,” which raises profound questions about how humans experience, define and shape reality. Not only has he literally played God (in the hit films “Bruce Almighty” and “Evan Almighty”), he also hosted the National Geographic Channel documentary series, “The Story of God,” which covered topics such as miracles, the nature of evil and the possibility of life after death.
So it’s no surprise that Freeman, who still spends a lot of time in his hometown of Charleston, Miss., has some pretty deep thoughts about life and how to live it:
“You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not: ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ ‘Has your life brought joy to others?’”
