Subj:     How to Get Into Heaven From Ireland (S293b, S736)
          From: mjsl on 9/9/2002
      and From: JOELFALLON and CarFal on 2/16/2011

 I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to
 see if they understood the concept of getting into heaven.

 I asked them, 'If I sold my house and my car, had a big
 garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that
 get me into heaven?'

 NO!' the children answered.

 If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and
 kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?'

 Again, the answer was 'NO!' By now I was starting to smile.

 'Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweets to all
 the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into
 heaven?'

 Again, they all answered 'NO!'

 I was just bursting with pride for them.

 I continued, "Then how can I get into heaven?"

 A six year-old boy shouted out: "YUV GOTTA BE FOOKIN' DEAD!"
 It's a curious group, the Irish.

Subj:     Blonde Man Gets Black Eye (S280b)
          From: twistedhumor.com on 10/9/2000

 A blond man showed up at work one day with a black eye.
 When his co- workers saw him they asked him what had
 happened.  He told them it had happened at church.  They
 didn't believe him, and wanted to know what really
 happened.

 So he told them, "I went to the church.  I got on my
 knees and prayed.  When I stood up to sing the hymns,
 there in front of me was the biggest woman I had ever
 seen.  Her dress was stuck in her butt-crack, so being
 the gentleman I am, I reached over and pulled it out
 for her.  She did not like that, so she hit me."  The
 guys laughed and ribbed him about it all day.

 The next week he showed up to work and his face was
 beat bad!  Again the guys asked him what had happened
 and he told them he'd got beaten up at church.  Again
 they didn't believe him, so he explained, "I went to
 the church.  I got on my knees and prayed.  When I
 stood up to sing the hymns, there in front of me was
 that same big woman with her dress again stuck up her
 butt-crack."

 At this point the other men interrupted and said,
 "Please tell us you didn't pull her dress out of her
 crack again?"

 "No, the guy standing beside me did, and I knew she
 didn't like that, so I shoved it back in."

Subj:     Joan, The Town Gossip (S257, S431b)
          From: thebartend on 12/19/2001
      and From: auntiegah on 4/27/2005

 Joan, the town gossip and self-appointed supervisor of the
 town's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's
 business.  Several local residents were unappreciative of
 her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their
 silence.

 However, she made a mistake when she recently accused
 George, a local man, of being an alcoholic after she saw
 his pickup truck parked outside the town's only bar one
 afternoon.

 George, a dedicated Christian and man of few words, stared
 at her for a moment and just walked away without saying a
 word.

 Later that evening, he parked his pickup truck in front of
 her house and left it there all night.  Her gossiping ceased.

Subj:     The Golden Telephone To Heaven (S248, S579c)
          From: gheckman on 10/27/2001
      and From: fischer-j on 2/20/2008

 A man in  Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about
 churches around the country.  He started by flying to
 San Francisco, and started working east from there.

 Going to a very large church, he began taking photographs
 and making notes.  He spotted a golden telephone on the
 vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign which read
 "$10,000 a minute."  Seeking out the pastor he asked about
 the phone and the sign.  The pastor answered that this
 golden phone is,in fact, a direct line to Heaven and if he
 pays the price he can talk directly to God.  The man
 thanked the pastor and continued on his way.

 As he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Austin,
 Michigan, Chicago, Milwaukee, and around the United
 States, he found more phones, with the same sign, and the
 same answer from each pastor.

 Finally, he arrived in Minnesota.  Upon entering a church
 in Minneapolis, Minnesota behold, he saw the usual golden
 telephone.  But THIS time, the sign read "Calls: 25 cents."
 Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor. "Reverend, I
 have been in cities all across the country and in each
 church I have found this golden telephone and have been
 told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk
 to God, but, in the other churches the cost was $10,000 a
 minute. Your sign reads 25 cents a call. Why?"

 The pastor, smiling benignly, replied, "Son, you're in
 Minnesota now, and it's a local call."

Subj:     Sing Hymns In Church (S318)
          From: LABLaughs.com on 2/19/2003

 One Sunday morning, the minister told the congregation that
 he was going to say a series of words and he wanted them to
 sing the song that came to mind when he said each word.

 The first word he said was "rock".
 They immediately started singing "Rock Of Ages".

 The second word he said was "blood",
 and they sang "Power in the Blood".

 The third word was "cross",
 and they began singing "The Old Rugged Cross".

 The fourth word he said was "sex".
 Everyone gasped, and then it got very quiet.
 'Way in the back of the church, an 87-year-old lady stood
 up and started singing "Precious Memories".

Subj:     Getting To Pick Three Hymns (S206, S424b)
          From: DoctorDebt on 3/13/2005
 Source: (Removed from craftonreunion.org)

 The Sunday before Christmas, a pastor told his congregation
 that the church needed some extra money.  He asked the people
 to consider donating a little more than usual into the offering
 plate.  He said that whoever gave the most would be able to
 pick out three hymns.  After the offering plates were passed,
 the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a
 $1,000 bill in offering.

 He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his
 congregation and said he'd like to personally thank the person
 who placed the money in the plate.  A very quiet, elderly,
 saintly looking lady all the way in the back shyly raised her
 hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front.

 Slowly she made her way to the pastor.  He told her how wonderful
 it was that she gave so much and in thanks asked her to pick out
 three hymns.

 Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, pointed
 to the three most handsome men in the building and said, "I'll
 take him and him and him."

Subj:     The Bible According To Kids (S178)
          From: gheckman on 6/25/00

 The following statements about the Bible were written by
 children and have not been retouched or corrected (i.e.,
 bad spelling has been left in).

 In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, God got tired
  of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off.

 Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree.

 Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark because Noah built
  the Ark, which the animals came to in pears.

 Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of
  fire by night.

 The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they
  had trouble with unsympathetic Genitals.

 Samson was a strong man who let himself be led astray by
  a Jezebel like Delilah.

 Samson slew the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.

 Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made
  unleavened bread, which is bread without any ingredients.

 The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert.

 Afterwards, Moses went up to Mount Cyanide to find the
  ten ammendments.

 The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat
  the apple.

 The seventh commandment is "Thou shalt not admit
   adultery.".

 Moses died before he ever reached Canada.

 Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.

 The greatest miricle in the Bible is when Joshua told
   his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

 David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar.
   He fought with the Finkelsteins, a race of people who
   lived in Biblical times.

 Solomon, one of David's sons, had 300 wives and 700
  porcupines.

 When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she
  sang the Magna Carta.

 Then the three Wise Guys from the east arrived and
  found Jesus in the manager.

 Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate
   Contraption.

 St. John, the blacksmith, dumped water on his head.

 Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do one
  to others before they do one to you.

 He also explained that "Man does not live by sweat
  alone".

 It was a miricle when Jesus rose from the dead and
  managed to get the tombstone off the entrance.

 The people who followed Jesus were called the 12
  decibles.

 The epistles were the wives of the apostles.

 One of the opossums was St. Matthew who was also a
  taxi man.

 St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached the
  holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage.

 A Christian should have only one spouse. This is
  called monotony.

Subj:     Man Without A Hat Goes To Church (S175)
          From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 6/8/00

 My uncle once spent days looking for his new hat.  Finally, he
 decided that he'd go to church on Sunday and sit at the back.
 During the service he would sneak out and grab a hat from the
 rack at the front door.

 On Sunday, he went to church and sat at the back.  The sermon
 was about the 10 commandments.  He sat through the whole sermon
 and instead of sneaking out he waited until the sermon was over
 and went to talk to the minister.

 "Father, I came here today to steal a hat to replace the one I
 lost.  But after hearing your sermon on the 10 Commandments, I
 changed my mind."

 The minister said, "Bless you my son.  Was it when I started to
 preach thou shall not steal, that changed your heart?"

 My uncle responded, "No, it was the one on adultery.  When you
 started to preach on that, I remembered where I left my hat."

Little Johnny
from Yahoo! Images

 One Sunday morning the pastor noticed little Johnny was
 standing staring up at the large plaque that hung in the
 foyer of the church.  The young man of seven had been
 staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked
 up and stood beside him and gazing up at the plaque he
 said quietly, "Good morning son."

 "Good morning pastor" replied the young man not taking his
 eyes off the plaque. "Sir, what is this?" Johnny asked.

 "Well son, these are all the people who have died in the
 service", replied the pastor. Soberly, they stood together
 staring up at the large plaque.

 Little Johnny's voice barely broke the silence when he asked
 quietly, "Which one sir, the 8:30 or the 10:30?"

Subj:     Sick In Church
          From: humorlist-digest V2 #94 on 98-04-16

A little girl was in church with her mother when she started feeling ill.

"Mommy," she said, "can we leave now?"

"No" her mother replied.

"Well, I think I have to throw up!"

"Then go out the front door and around to the back of the church and throw
up behind a bush."

After about 60 seconds the little girl returned to her seat.

"Did you throw up?" Mom asked.

"Yes."

"How could you have gone all the way to the back of the church and returned
so quickly?"

"I didn't have to go out of the church, Mommy.  They have a box next to the
front door that says, 'For the Sick'."

Subj:     Baptist Revival
          From: humorlist-digest V2 #75 on 98-03-25

Several churches in the South decided to hold revival services.
The leader was a Baptist and proud of his denomination.

"How many Baptists are here?" he asked on his first night of
the revival.

All except one little lady raised their hands.

"Lady, what are you?" asked the minister.

"I'm a Methodist," meekly replied the lady.

"Why are you a Methodist?"

"Well, my grandparents were Methodists, my mother was a
Methodist, and my late husband was a Methodist."

"Well," retorted the leader, "just supposing all of your relatives
had been morons.  What would that have made you?"

"Oh, I see.  A Baptist, I suppose."

 (Also see 'Sex at the freezer' in Marriage2
       and 'Irish Woman Wants Viagra For Her Husband' in DOCTOR-SUPP)

 An elderly couple, a middle-aged couple and a young newlywed
 couple wanted to join a church.  The pastor says, "We have
 special requirement for new parishioners.  You must abstain
 from having sex for two weeks."  The couples agreed and came
 back at the end of two weeks.

 The pastor goes to the elderly couple and asks, "Were you able
 to abstain?"  The old man replies, "Yes we did!" replied the
 husband.  "It wasn't even difficult!  My wife took up knitting,
 and I read a lot, and we never even missed sex."

 "Congratulations! Welcome to the church." said the pastor.  The
 pastor goes to the middle-aged couple and asks, "Well, were you
 able to abstain?"

 The man replied, "The first week was not too bad.  The second
 week I had to sleep on the couch for a couple of nights but,
 yes, we made it."

 The minister congratulated the second couple.  "Come on in to
 the church!"  The pastor then goes to the newlywed couple and
 asks, "Well, were you able to abstain from sex for two weeks?"

 "Well Pastor, we were not able to go without sex for the two
 weeks." the young man replied.

 "What Happened?" inquired the pastor.

 "My wife was reaching for a can of corn on the top shelf and
 dropped it.  When she bent over to pick it up, I was overcome
 with lust and took advantage of her right there."

 "You understand, of course, this means you will not be welcome
 in our church," stated the pastor.

 "That's OK." Said the young man, "We're not welcome at Safeway
 anymore either.

Subj:     Falling Asleep During The Sermon (S71, S633)
          From: RFSlick on 98-06-12
      and From: allenbergman on 2/23/2009

 One day Mr. Jones went to have a talk with the minister at
 his church.  "Reverend," he said, " I have a problem-- my
 wife keeps falling asleep during your sermons.  It's very
 embarrassing.  What should I do?"

 "I have and idea," said the minister.  "Take this hatpin
 with you.  I'll be able to tell when Mrs. Jones is sleeping,
 and I will motion to you at specific times.  When I motion,
 you give her a good poke in the leg with this pin."

 In church the following Sunday, Mrs. Jones dozed off.
 Noticing this, the preacher put his plan to work. "...And
 who made the ultimate sacrifice for you?" he said, nodding
 to Mr. Jones.  "Jesus!" cried Mrs. Jones as her husband
 jabbed her in the leg with the hatpin.  "Yes, you are right,
 Mrs. Jones," said the minister.

 Soon, Mrs. Jones nodded off again.  Again, the minister
 noticed.  "Who is your redeemer?" he asked the congregation,
 motioning towards Mr. Jones.  "God!" cried out Mrs. Jones
 as she was stuck again with the hatpin.  "Right again, Mrs.
 Jones," said the minister, smiling and continuing his sermon.

 Before long, Mrs. Jones dozed off again.  However, this time
 the minister didn't notice.  As he picked up the tempo of
 his sermon, he made a few motions that Mr. Jones mistook as
 signals to wake his wife again. He was just sticking her
 with the hatpin again when the minister asked, "...And
 what did Eve say to Adam after she bore him his 99th son?"
 Mrs. Jones shrieked, "You stick that goddamned thing in me
 one more time and I'll break it off and shove it up your
 ass!!!!"  The sermon was over.

Subj:     Two Bad Boys (S495)
          From: darrellvip on 2/17/2010

 This family moves into a new town.  They had two little
 hellion boys that terrorized the teachers at their previous
 school.  The nearest school in their new town was a Catholic
 school.  Well, they weren't Catholic, but they decided to
 send their two boys there anyway, hoping perhaps that the
 Nuns there would be able to straighten these boys out.  The
 boys began living up to their name, and terrorized their new
 school.  One day, the younger of the two gets caught, and
 the nun grabs him by the scruff of the neck, and hauls him
 down to the head priest.

 The head priest sits him down across from his desk.  "Satan
 is controlling you.  He is why you are bad.  Don't you know,
 that no matter where you are or what you do, that God is
 always there, always watching you?  God is everywhere.  He's
 at your home, here at school, where ever you are.  He is
 there, whether you are naughty, nice, good or bad, he is
 always there, watching you!"  The priest speaks for 15 minutes,
 hoping to get through to the boy.

 After he is done with his speech, he asks the boy, "Now, where
 is God?"

 The boy just shrugs.  Again, the priest asks, "Where is God?"
 Again, the boy just shrugs.  By now, the priest is getting upset,
 and points at the boy. "WHERE IS GOD!!??"

 The boy looks around: under his chair, around the room. He drops
 his head down a little bit and shrugs his shoulders.

 The priest was furious by now; he yelled at the boy, "Go home!
 Get your mother, and bring her back here with you!"

 Well, by this time, school was already out, and all the kids had
 gone home, so the boy runs home as fast as he can.  When he gets
 home, his older brother is outside playing.  He runs over to him,
 grabs a hold of him.

 "Get in the house, we're in big trouble, God's missing, and
 they're blaming us!"

Subj:     PMS In The Bible
          From: TNKRTEACH on 97-11-12

 A preacher was telling his congregation that anything they could think
 of, old or new, was discussed somewhere in the Bible and that the
 entirety of the human experience could be found there.  After the
 service, he was approached by a woman who said, "Preacher, I don't
 believe the Bible mentions PMS."  The preacher replied that he was
 sure it must be there somewhere and that he would look for it.

 The following week after service, the preacher called the woman
 aside and showed her a passage which read, "And Mary rode Joseph's ass
 all the way to Bethelehem."

Subj:     Chain Letter At Church

   I received an interesting chain letter the other day.
It went like this:
    To Whom it may Concern:

    If you are not satisfied with your present pastor mail
this letter to the 6 churches listed at the top of the letter,
then pack up your pastor and ship him to the church at the
bottom of the list.
    At the end of 2 weeks, you should receive a total of
16,436 pastors -- one of them is bound to be a dandy!
But beware!  One church broke this chain and received their
old pastor back!

          From: Joke-Of-The-Day on 9/17/2002
 A friend was in front of me coming out of church one day,
 and the preacher was standing at the door as he always
 is to shake hands.  He grabbed my friend by the hand and
 pulled him aside.

 The Pastor said to him, "You need to join the Army of
 the Lord!"

 My friend replied, "I'm already in the Army of the Lord,
 Pastor."

 Pastor questioned, "How come I don't see you except at
 Christmas and Easter?"

 He whispered back, "I'm in the secret service."

 Six-year old Angie and her four-year old brother Joel were

 not supposed to talk out loud in church."

 "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.

 Finding one of her students making faces at others on the

 Smiling sweetly the Sunday School teacher said, "Bobby, when

Subj:     Sunday School Lesson On 10 Commandments (S191 ? S355)
          From: TAdams on 9/28/00

 (See 'Sunday School Class Learns Commandments' in CHURCH-SUPP)
 A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.
 They were ready to discuss the last one.  The teacher asked
 if anyone could tell her what it was.  Susie raised her
 hand, stood tall, and quoted, "Thou shall not take the
 covers off the neighbor's wife."

Subj:     Moses Leads Israelites
          From: TNKRTEACH on 97-05-30
 Do you think that Moses led the Israelites through the desert
 for forty years because God was testing him, or because he
 wanted them to really appreciate the Promised Land when
 they finally got there, or because Moses refused to ask
 anybody for directions?

 One thing about a church...you're never too bad to come in
   and you're never too good to stay out.

 My church welcomes all denominations....tens, twenties, fifties.

 How about the California church that has two commandments, and
 eight suggestions.

Subj:     Prayer To God (S191)
          From: dmswitzer on 98-04-02
 Dear Lord,

           So far today God, I've done all right;

           I haven't gossiped, haven't lost my temper,
             haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty,
               selfish, or over-indulgent.
           I'm very thankful for that.

           But in a few minutes, God,
             I'm going to get out of this bed,
           And from then on
             I'm probably going to need
               a lot more help.  Amen.

Subj:     Acting Up During Church (S160)
          From: collins2 on 01/17/2000
  One Sunday in a Midwest city, a young child was "acting
  up" during the morning worship hour.  The parents did
  their best to maintain some sense of order in the pew
  but were losing the battle.  Finally, the father picked
  the little fellow up and walked sternly up the aisle on
  his way out.  Just before reaching the safety of the
  foyer, the little one called loudly to the congregation,
 "Pray for me! Pray for me!"
 

 Q: How come no one ever came up with any jokes about the
    Jonestown incident?
 A: The Punchlines Were Too Long.
