A man dies
and goes to heaven. St. Peter meets him at the pearly gates.
says, "Here's how it works. You need 100 points to make it into heaven. You
tell me all the good things you've done, and I give you a certain number of
points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach 100
points, you get in."
man says, "I attended church every Sunday"
"That's good, says St. Peter, " that's worth two points"
points?" he says. "Well, I gave 10% of all my earnings to the church"
"Well, let's see," answers Peter, "that's worth another 2 points. Did you do
points? Golly. How about this: I started a soup kitchen in my city and
worked in a shelter for homeless veterans."
"Fantastic, that's certainly worth a point, " he says.
the man says, "I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never
cheated on her, even in my heart."
"That's wonderful," says St. Peter, "that's worth three points!"
POINTS!!" the man cries, "At this rate the only way I get into heaven is by
the grace of God!"
"Come on in!"
