A minister dies and is waiting in line

A minister dies and is ready in line on the Pearly Gates.

Forward of him is a man who’s wearing sun shades, a loud shirt, leather-based jacket, and denims.

Saint Peter addresses this man, “Who’re you, in order that I’ll know whether or not or to not admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?”

The man replies, “I’m Joe Cohen, taxi-driver, of New York Metropolis.”

Saint Peter consults his listing.

He smiles and says to the taxi-driver, “Take this silken gown and golden workers and Enter the Kingdom.”

The taxi-driver goes into Heaven along with his gown and workers.

Subsequent it’s the minister’s flip. He stands erect and booms out, “I’m Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary’s for the final 43 years.”

Saint Peter consults his listing. He says to the minister, “Take this cotton gown and picket workers and enter the Kingdom.”

“Only a minute,” says the minister.

“That man was a taxi-driver and he will get a silken gown and golden workers. How can this be?”

“Up right here, we work by outcomes,” says Saint Peter. “Whilst you preached, individuals slept; whereas he drove, individuals prayed.”
