The pearly gates

Recommended Posts

A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates.

Ahead of him is a guy who’s dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt,

leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this guy, "Who are you, so that I may know

whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?"

The guy replies, "I’m Joe Cohen, taxi driver, of Noo Yawk City."

St. Peter consults his list.

He smiles and says to the taxi driver, "Take this silken robe and

golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

The taxi driver goes into Heaven with his robe and staff, and it’s the

minister’s turn.

He stands erec t and booms out, "I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Calvary

for the last forty-three years."

St Peter consults his list.

He says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and

Enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

"Just a minute," says the minister. "That man was a taxi driver, and he

gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?!"

"Up here, we work by results," says Saint Peter. "While you preached,

people slept; while he drove, people prayed."
