Pastor And Taxi Driver

A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is this guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a T-shirt, leather jacket and jeans.

Saint Peter asks this guy. "Who are you, so I may know whether or not to admit you into the Kingdom of Heaven?"

"I'm Joe Cohen, a taxi driver, of New York city."

Saint Peter consults his list, smiles and says "Take this silken robe and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

The minister stands up and booms out. "I'm Joseph Snow, pastor of the Second Baptist Church for the last forty-three years."

Saint Peter consults his list again and says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."


Just a minute says the minister, "The taxi driver gets a silken robe, how can that be?". "I know this taxi driver because I rode with him while he was alive. He was obnoxious and drove like a maniac."

"In heaven, we reward on results" says Saint Peter. "When you preached, everyone slept. When the taxi driver drove, everyone prayed to God".
