In Line At The Pearly Gates

A minister dies, and he is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates to be admitted to Heaven.

He has been there rather a long time, as there was rather a long queue of people waiting to get in, and he was becoming rather impatient.

Ahead of him is this guy who is 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.”

Saint Peter consults his list.

A few minutes later, 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.

The minister walks up to the pearly gates, stands erect and booms out, “I am Joseph Snow, and I was the pastor of Calvary for the last forty-three years.”

Saint Peter consults his list.

Having found the entry for the minister, Saint Peter turns to him and says, “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.”
