Taxi Driver in Heaven

Taxi Driver In Heaven

A minister has just died and is standing in line waiting to be judged and admitted to Heaven. While waiting he asks the man in front of him about himself.

The man says, “I was a taxi driver from New York City.” The angel standing at the gate calls out “next,” and the taxi driver steps up.

The angel hands him a golden staff and a cornucopia of fruits, cheeses, and wine and lets him pass. The taxi driver looks pleased and proceeds through the gates into heaven.

The minister begins to think about the richness he’ll get upon his entrance.

But instead, the angel hands him a wooden staff and some bread and water.

The minister is very concerned and asks the angel, “That guy is a taxi driver and gets a golden staff and a cornucopia! I spend my entire life as a minister and get next to nothing! How can that be?”

The angel replies, “Up here we judge on results. All of your people slept through your sermons. In his taxi, they prayed.

A Day At The Races

One day while he was at the track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.

Lo and behold, that horse — a very long shot — won the race. 

Before the following race, the Priest blessed yet another horse. Mitch made a beeline for the window, and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the race.

Mitch collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest would bless for the 6th race. The priest showed, blessed a horse, Mitch bet a large amount of money on it, and it won!

True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears, and hooves of one of the horses.

Mitch bet every cent he had, including his life savings and the deed to his house. Mitch then watched the horse come in dead last. He was dumbfounded.

He made his way to the track, and when he found the priest, he demanded, “What happened, Father? All day long you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now, thanks to you, I’ve lost all my savings!”

The priest nodded wisely and said, “That’s the problem with Protestants — you can’t tell the difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites!

church and state

There has been much debate over the years about what the founding fathers meant about the separation of church and state. In recent times there has been much disinformation about how they actually believed, especially George Washington. In this short Ebook the author tries to explain how they actually felt.

The Priest and the Lawyer

There is a truck driver driving along, and he stops and picks up a
priest to give him a ride.

He’s driving down the highway and he sees a lawyer along the side
of the road and thinks, “Hot! A lawyer that I could run over!” So he
speeds up and heads straight for him.

At the last second he remembers the priest with him. So he swerves
real quick to miss him, but still hears a thump. He looks behind, no
sign of the lawyer.

He says to the priest “Wow, that was a close one, I almost hit that
lawyer!”

The priest then replies “That’s ok son, I got him with my door.”

Make Money Doing What you Love

The Priest, the Minister and the Rabbi

The Catholic, the Baptist, and the Jew

A Catholic priest, a Baptist minister, and a Rabbi want to see which of them is best at his job. They decide each will go into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it.

A few days later they get together as agreed, and the priest begins: “When I found the bear, I read to him from the Catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his First Communion.”

The other two murmur their agreement that he did a very good job.

“I found a bear by the stream,” says the Baptist, “and preached God’s holy word. The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him!”

The other two murmur their agreement that he did a very good job.

They both look down at the Rabbi, who is lying on a gurney in a body cast. “You know, looking back,” the Rabbi says, “maybe I shouldn’t have started with the circumcision….”
