    A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote 'Revelation 3:20' on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

    When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, 'Genesis 3:10... .’

    Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins 'Behold, I stand at the door and knock.' Genesis 3:10 reads, 'I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.'

    Remember when the funniest jokes were the clean ones? They still are! 'A cheerful heart is good medicine' (Prov. 17:22)

    Forest Gump and St. Peter

    When Forest Gump died, he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "Welcome, Forest. We've heard a lot about you." He continued, "Unfortunately, it's getting pretty crowded up here and we find that we now have to give people an entrance examination before we let them in."

    "Okay," said Forest. "I hope it's not too hard. I've already been through a test. My momma used to say, 'Life is like a final exam. It's hard.' "

    "Yes, Forest, I know. But this test is only three questions. Here they are."

    1) Which two days of the week begin with the letter 'T'?"

    2) How many seconds are in a year?

    3) What is God's first name?

    "Well, sir," said Forest, "The first one is easy. Which two days of the week begin with the letter 'T'? Today and Tomorrow."

    St. Peter looked surprised and said, "Well, that wasn't the answer I was looking for, but you have a point. I give you credit for that answer."

    "The next question," said Forest, "How many seconds are in a year? Twelve."

    "Twelve?" said St. Peter, surprised and confused.

    "Yes, sir. January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd …"

    St. Peter interrupted him. "I see what you mean. I'll have to give you credit for that one, too."

    "And the last question," said Forest, "What is God's first name? It's Andy."

    "Andy?" said St. Peter, in shock. "How did you come up with 'Andy'?"

    "I learned it in church. We used to sing about it." Forest broke into song, "Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am His own."

    St. Peter opened the gate to heaven and said, "Run, Forest, Run!"

    The Pope Wants to Drive...

    After getting all of the Pope's luggage loaded into the limo (and he doesn't travel lightly), the driver notices that the Pope is still standing on the curb.

    The Pope was still standing on the curb.

    "Excuse me, Your Eminence," says the driver, "Would you please take your seat so we can leave?"

    "Well, to tell you the truth," says the Pope, "they never let me drive at the Vatican, and I'd really like to drive today"

    "I'm sorry but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! And what if something should happen?" protests the driver, wishing he'd never gone to work that morning.

    "There might be something extra in it for you," says the Pope.

    Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel.

    The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Supreme Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 105 mph.

    "Please slow down, Your Holiness!!!" pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear sirens.

    "Oh, dear God, I'm gonna lose my license," moans the driver.


    The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches, but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio.

    "I need to talk to the Chief," he says to the dispatcher.

    The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped a limo going a hundred and five.

    "So bust him," said the Chief.

    "I don't think we want to do that, he's really important," said the cop.

    Chief exclaimed, "All the more reason!"

    "No, I mean really important," said the cop.

    The Chief then asked, "Who ya got there, the Mayor?"

    Cop: "Bigger."

    Chief: "Governor?"

    Cop: "Bigger."

    "Well," said the Chief,"Who is it?"

    Cop: "I think it's God!"

    Chief: "What makes you think it's God?"

    Cop: "He's got the Pope for a limo driver!"

    lol  Good ones atomswifey.  Here's a couple more.


    After church on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided I'm going to be a priest when I grow up.

    "That's wonderful," his mother said, "But what made you decide to be a priest?"

    "Well," the boy replied, "I'll have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell than to sit still and listen."


    A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "honor thy father and thy mother," she asked "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?"

    Without missing a beat one little boy answered, "Thou shall not kill."


    A Sunday School teacher decided to have her 2nd grade class memorize Psalm 23, one of the most favorite psalms in the Bible. She gave the children a month to learn the chapter.

    One little boy was excited about the task, but he just couldn't memorize the Psalm. Although he practiced and practiced, he could hardly get past the first line. The day came for the children to recite Psalm 23 before the congregation. The little boy was nervous. When his turn came, he stepped up to the microphone and proudly said, "The Lord is my Shepherd and that's all I need to know!"

    I think this was me.  smile


    A little boy was playing one evening with his mother's broom, pretending it was a horse. When it was time for him to come in, he left the broom outside. When the mother realized that he had done this she told him to go and get it in.

    "But it's dark outside," the little boy protested. "I'm scared to go out."

    His mother smiled and said, "Don't be afraid. Jesus is out there too."

    The little boy brightened. He opened the back door a little, peeked out and shouted, "Jesus, can you please hand me the broom."


    Q. Why did Adam think the day was so long?
    A. Because there was no Eve!

    Not really a joke, but a true story, as told me by my jeweler friend in Glasgow:
    A rough looking teenage girl came into my shop saying - I want to buy a cross. Thinking she wouldn't have a lot to spend, I offered her a plain silver cross.
    - Naw, no like that!
    So I offered her a plain gold cross.
    - Naw, no like that either!
    So I offered her a Celtic Iona style cross.
    - Naw, that's no use either!
    Stumped, I asked what kind of cross she wanted.
    - Huv ye no got one with that wee mannie on it?
    "That wee mannie" - how have the mighty fallen wink

    Two young boys were caught smoking behind the church when they were supposed to be in Sunday school.
    The pastor decided to scare them with the thought that Jesus is always watching them and sees everything they do.

    he called the first one into his office, and trying to make his point said "do you know where Jesus is?" and to make the little bugger sweat he sent him out to think about it and told him to send his pal in. as they passed each other in the hall the other kid asked how it went... so the first kid said: " its worse than we thought, Jesus is missing and pastor thinks we did it!"

    almost sounds like a challenge there MM...
    here's another....
    two nuns are driving through Transylvania on a dark and stormy night. As they drive past a great big mansion, suddenly out of nowhere a dwarf vampire jumps onto the car bonnet and flares his teeth at the nuns. Of course the are shocked and the nun on the passenger seat shrieks to the other "sister Agatha, swerve a few times, maybe he'll fall off!" Sister A swerves dangerously but the dwarf vampire is clinging on to the windshield wipers... "turn on the wipes sister Agatha!" screams sister Beatrice--- this also does not help, "slam on the breaks sister Agatha!" again, the dwarf is hanging on growling at the two sisters when finally sister Agatha said to sister Beatrice: " He's a vampire, show him your cross!"
    whereupon sister B rolls down the car window and yells at the vampire: "get off the *§$%% car you little §%&"§$!!!"

    Honk if you love Jesus!
    LOL love this joke it is so cute

    The other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore and saw a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker.

    I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

    Boy, I'm glad I did! What an uplifting experience that followed!

    I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is... and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

    It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed!

    I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD! GO! GO! Jesus Christ, GO!"

    What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking!

    I just leaned out of my window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

    There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a "sunny beach"...

    I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

    Then I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant, he said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back.

    My grandson burst out laughing...why, even he was enjoying this religious experience!

    A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

    So, I waved to all my sisters and brothers grinning, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.

    Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!

    The Lords way of getting even with us when the need arises.


    Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf. So he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.

    As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away. This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

    At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?"

    The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."

    Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.  IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE!

    St. Peter was astonished.. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"

    The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"

    A Catholic priest, pastor and a rabbi decide are walking along on a very hot day... talking about scripture and doing what humble and spirutual men do.
    Eventually though they all start to feel very hot and somehow realize that they have to do something about it. Each of them prayed for relief, and what do you know, they see a nice inviting lake. Unfortunately, of course none of them had any bathing clothes with them, so they started debating whether god would mind if they go skinny dipping. After much quoting from the scriptures, they eventually decide that it would be ok, so they toss off the rags and go for a nice relaxing and coooling swim.

    After about half an hour, they looked up to see a large group of people standing on the banks. Ashamed, the Priest covered his privates and ran to the clothes... next the pastor covered his shame and jolted to where their clothing lay.... last the rabbi... covering his face ran to where they disrobed. Amazed at this the other two asked why the rabbi opted to cover his face in stead of his privates... and the rabbi said: "vell I doon knoww about you twoo, but in my synagogue zat vould be ze part zey recognize!"

    Kids ideas of angels

    I only know the names of two angels, Hark and Harold. ~~~Gregory, 5

    Everybody's got it all wrong. Angels don't wear halos anymore. I forget why, but scientists are working on it. ~~~Olive, 9

    It's not easy to become an angel! First, you die. Then you go to Heaven, and then there's still the flight training to go through. And then you got to agree to wear those angel clothes. ~~~Matthew, 9

    Angels work for God and watch over kids when God has to go do something else. ~~~Mitchell, 7

    My guardian angel helps me with math, but he's not much good for science. ~~~Henry, 8

    Angels don't eat, but they drink milk from Holy Cows!!! ~~~Jack, 6

    When an angel gets mad, he takes a deep breath and counts to ten. And when he lets out his breath, somewhere there's a tornado. ~~~Reagan, 10

    Angels have a lot to do and they keep very busy. If you lose a tooth, an angel comes in through your window and leaves money under your pillow. Then when it gets cold, angels go south for the winter. ~~~Sara, 6

    Angels live in cloud houses made by God and his son, who's a very good carpenter. ~~~Jared, 8

    All angels are girls because they gotta wear dresses and boys didn't go for it. ~~~Antonio, 9

    My angel is my grandma who died last year. She got a big head start on helping me while she was still down here on earth. ~~~ Lynn , 9

    Some of the angels are in charge of helping heal sick animals and pets. And if they don't make the animals get better, they help the child get over it. ~~~Vicki, 8

    What I don't get about angels is why, when someone is in love, they shoot arrows at them. ~~~ Sarah, 7

    Angels talk all the way while they're flying you up to heaven. The main subject is where you went wrong before you got dead. ~~~Daniel, 9

    A visiting minister at the start of the offertory prayer: "Dear Lord," he began with arms extended and a rapturous look on his upturned face, "without you we are but dust..."

    After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was "DON'T!"

    "Don't what?" Adam replied.

    "Don't eat the forbidden fruit." God said.

    "Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve...we have forbidden fruit!!!!!"

    "No Way!"

    "Yes way!"

    "Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God.


    "Because I am your Father and I know what's best!" God replied. A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!

    "Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" God asked.

    "Uh huh," Adam replied.

    "Then why did you?" said the Father.

    "I don't know," said Eve.

    "She started it!" Adam said.

    "Did not!"

    "Did too!"

    "DID NOT!"

    "Did TOO!" Adam then rounded on the Father. "AND IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!"

    Having had it with the two of them, God decided to discipline them by giving them children of their own. And He created adolescence.

    Hurrying home from work one day, a gentleman steps off the curb on a busy New York street and is hit by a passing car. A policeman across the street sees the accident and rushes to the man's aid. While checking the man for injuries, he discovers a religious medal with the inscription, "I am a Catholic, in case of accident, please call a priest."

    Looking up at the gathering crowd, he asks the assembled people "Is anyone here a priest?" No one responds.

    The crowd grows. Again he repeats his question, again no response.

    With the injured man lapsing in and out of consciousness he tries one last time. With growing impatience he asks, "Is anybody a priest ... or even a Catholic ... can anybody help this man?"

    Finally one old man steps forward. "I am not a Catholic," he says, but I live only a house away from Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church in Brooklyn, and on summer nights, I hear the words of their service. Maybe I can offer this poor man some comfort.

    Realizing the injured man is gravely hurt, he agrees and the old man bends over the man lying in the street, folds his hands reverently, and says... B, 4 ... I, 19 ... N, 32 ........

    Children’s Letter to God

    Dear God, We read that Thomas Edison made light. But in Sunday school they said You did it. Did he steal your idea?


    A Leg up on Theft

    When a ladder was stolen from a store, the manager said that further steps would be taken.

    A weary elevator operator at a department store had patiently answered shoppers’ questions all day. Just before closing, a voice from the rear of the crowded car piped up, “Suppose the elevator cables broke, would we go up or down?”

    The operator’s patience finally gave way. “That,” he answered, “depends entirely on the kind of life you’ve been living.”

    Doesn't anyone else have some good clean jokes?

    Remember 'A cheerful heart is good medicine' (Prov. 17:22)


    A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

    The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

    Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

    The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'.

    The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?'

    The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.


    A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.

    As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

    The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.'

    The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.'

    Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'


    A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, 'Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.'

    'Yes,' the class said.

    'Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my feet?'

    A little fellow shouted, 'Cause your feet ain't empty.'


    The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples.  The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:

    'Take only ONE . God is watching.'

    Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

    A child had written a note, 'Take all you want. God is watching the apples.'

    The clown, who never did well at tests, panicked: “Oh no! Not a test! Is it multiple choice?”

    Saint Peter said, “Do not worry; the test is very easy. All you have to do is tell me the name of God’s Son.”

    The clown thought for a moment, and replied, “Andy!”

    “Andy? Why do you say Andy?” asked Saint Peter.

    A young girl from a very small town did a postal degree as a teacher.
    After getting her diploma to teach she started looking for a job. Since her town was so small, no more teachers were needed there so she applied for a job in the city. She eventually got work at a middle school and started off into her new life.

    She was amazed when she got into town by all the bright lights and things she had never seen before, but she had little time so she went straight to school for her first day of work.

    She was introduced to the head master and he took her to her class room... it was still early in the day and the head master told her to just get used to her empty classroom for a while, he'd be right back. Head master went back to his office to make a phone call, after which he realized that it was getting late and the kids would come in to school soon, so he decided to call the new teacher to his office in stead of going to her...

    He took the microphone and spoke over the two way intercom system.. "Miss Smith?" , she looked up startled, not knowing where the voice was coming from.... the head master again "Miss Smith?!".... again, she could not figure it out... and a third time "Miss Smith, are you there?!??" ... whereupon she fell to her knees and said:"Speak Lord, your servant is listening!"

    Great thread, Mike - not really Christian humour, but clean big_smile

    A lawyer a Rabbi and a Hindu holy man had car trouble in the countryside and asked to spend the night with a farmer.
    The farmer said "There might be a problem; you see, I only have room for two to sleep, so one of you must sleep in the barn."

    "No problem," chimed the Rabbi, "My people wandered in the desert for forty years, I am humble enough to sleep in the barn for an evening. With that he departed to the barn and the others bedded down for the night. Moments later a knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door, there stood the Rabbi from the barn. "What's wrong?" asked the farmer. The Rabbi replied, "I am grateful to you, but I can't sleep in the barn. There is a pig in the barn and my faith believes that this is an unclean animal."

    His Hindu friend agrees to swap places with him. But a few minutes later the same scene reoccurs. There is a knock on the door, "What's wrong, now?" the farmer asks. The Hindu holy man replies, "I too am grateful for your helping us out but there is a cow in the barn and in my country cows are considered sacred. I can't sleep on holy ground!"

    Well, that leaves only the lawyer to make the change. He grumbled and complained, but went out to the barn. Yep, you guessed it! Moments later there was another knock on the farmers door. Frustrated and tired, the farmer opens the door, and there stood the pig and the cow.

    This information is for Catholics only. It must not be divulged to non-Catholics.  The less they know about our rituals and code words, the better off they are.

    AMEN: The only part of a prayer that everyone knows.

    BULLETIN: Your receipt for attending Mass.

    CHOIR: A group of people whose singing allows the rest of the Parish to lip-sync.

    HOLY WATER: A liquid whose chemical formula is H2OLY.

    HYMN: A song of praise usually sung in a key three octaves higher than that of the congregation's range.

    RECESSIONAL HYMN: The last song at Mass often sung a little more quietly, since most of the people have already left.

    INCENSE: Holy Smoke!

    JESUITS: An order of priests known for their ability to find colleges with good basketball teams.

    JONAH: The original 'Jaws' story.

    JUSTICE: When kids have kids of their own.

    KYRIE ELEISON: The only Greek words that most Catholics can recognize besides gyros and baklava. (for you non-Catholics it means Lord have mercy).

    MAGI: The most famous trio to attend a baby shower.

    MANGER: Where Mary gave birth to Jesus because Joseph wasn't covered by an HMO. (The Bible's way of showing us that holiday travel has always been rough.)

    PEW: A medieval torture device still found in Catholic churches.

    PROCESSION: The ceremonial formation at the beginning of Mass consisting of altar servers, the celebrant, and late parishioners looking for seats.

    RECESSIONAL: The ceremonial procession at the conclusion of Mass led by parishioners trying to beat the crowd to the parking lot.

    RELICS: People who have been going to Mass for so long, they actually know when to sit, kneel, and stand.

    TEN COMMANDMENTS: The most important Top Ten list not given by David Letterman.

    USHERS: The only people in the parish who don't know the seating capacity of a pew.

    Little known facts about the Catholic Church in Las Vegas: There are more churches in Las Vegas than casinos. During Sunday services at the offertory, some worshippers contribute casino chips as opposed to cash. Some are sharing their winnings - some are hoping to win. Since they get chips from so many different casinos, and they are worth money, the Catholic churches are required to send all the chips into the diocese for sorting. Once sorted into the respective casino chips, one junior priest takes the chips and makes the rounds to the casinos turning chips into cash. And he, of course, is known as The Chip Monk.

    These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.

    Two nuns petitioned the Mother Superior to paint their common cell. The Mother Superior agreed on the condition that they did not harm their habits. As the nuns began to paint, it became clear that it would be futile if they attempted to paint while in their habits. For, one of the nuns said to the other, "O, Sister, there is no way we can do this without ruining our habits. What shall we do?"

    They agreed that stripping was the only option. And so they did, and then painted the cell over the next couple hours. Then, around when they finished, there was a knock at the door. They panicked and thought, "Who is it?"

    The knock came again, and they asked, "Who is it?"

    A voice from the behind the door cried, "Blind man!"

    They looked at each other astonished. "What should we do?" they asked one another.

    Finally, one of the nuns, after thinking for a moment, said, "Well, the man says he is blind, and hence will not be able to see us. So it should be ok to let him in."

    They opened the door and let the man in. Then he said, "OK, where do you want the blinds?"


    A group of nuns lived in community, but had taken a vow of silence. If there were demanding circumstances that warranted speaking, the nun to speak would have to break the silence with, "Praise the Lord!", and if another nun responded, she would preface, "Thanks be to God!"

    And so it happened one evening that a man broke into the convent, and one of the nuns was aware of it. Finally, in desperation, she cried out to the community:

    "Praise the Lord! There's a man in the house!"

    The Mother Superior shouted back, "Thanks be to God! Where is he?"

    The Children were asked questions about the Old and New Testaments.  The following statements about the Bible were written by the children.  They have not been corrected thus (the incorrect spelling is their own).  I hope you enjoy!

       The children wrote:

      1.  In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off.

      2.  Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree.  Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark.  Noah built an ark which  the animals come on to in pears.

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

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

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

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

      10.  The seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit  adultery.

      11.  Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then  Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.

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

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

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

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

      17.  Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate  contraption.

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

      19.  Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says to do  one to others before they do one to you.  He also explained,    "a man doth not live by sweat alone."

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

      21.  The people who followed the lord were called the 12  decibels.

      22.  The epistles were the wives of the apostles.

      23.  One of the oppossums was St. Matthew who was also  a taximan.

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

      25.  Christians have only one spouse.  This is called   monotony.

    A priest, a minister, and a rabbi want to see who's best at his job. So they each go into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it. Later they get together.

    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."

    "I found a bear by the stream," says the minister, "and preached God's Holy Word. The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him."

    They both look down at the rabbi, who is lying on a gurney in a body cast. "Looking back," he says, "maybe I shouldn't have started with the circumcision."

    The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he'd settle for the offer and they agreed on it.  After about six weeks his father said, "Son, I've been real proud. You brought your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I'm real disappointed you haven't gotten your hair cut."

    The young man paused a moment then said, "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair and there's even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair."

    To this his father replied, "Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?"

    There were two very mischievous young boys who lived across the street from a local church in town.  They went to the church on a regular basis and became well known for the pranks and innocent fun they got into.

    A new pastor came to town and introduced himself to the parishoners including the parents of these two boys.  The parents told them of their boys and the nature of their carryingons.  They also asked if he would have a talk with them to see if he could make them a little more serious about their religious upbringing.  He said certainly and asked if they would send one of them over the following Saturday by himself so he could get better aquainted.

    Saturday came and the parents sent one of the boys over to see the reverend.  The boy let himself in and found the pastor in his office.  The pastor asked him to sit down and introduced himself and told him that his parents were very nice and that they had asked him to talk to him about his spiritual life. They talked about everything including his brother and admitted to occasionally getting into trouble.  There was a quiet lull and the pastor stood up and pounded his fist on the desk and said in a very stern voice. "Do you know where God is?".

    The boy was terrified and jumped out of his chair and ran home and hid in his closet.  His brother saw him run in the house and followed him to the now closed closet door.  Anxious to know what the pastor had said to make him this scared he asked what the pastor had said.  A little voice came from the other side of the door and said "He has lost God and he thinks we had something to do with it".

    At a church meeting a very wealthy man rose to tell the rest of those present about his Christian faith. "I'm a millionaire," he said, "and I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life. I remember that turning point in my faith. I had just earned my first dollar and I went to a church meeting that night. The speaker was a missionary who told about his work. I knew that I only had a dollar bill and had to either give it all to God's work or nothing at all. So at that moment I decided to give my whole dollar to God. I believe that God blessed that decision, and that is why I am a rich man today."

    He finished and there was an awed silence at his testimony as he moved toward his seat. As he sat down a little old lady sitting in the same pew leaned over and said to him: "I dare you to do it again."

    Tavern vs Church

    The story is told of a man who got a permit to open the first tavern in a small town. The members of a local church were strongly opposed to the bar, so they began to pray that God would intervene. A few days before the tavern was scheduled to open, lightning hit the structure and it burned to the ground. The people of the church were surprised but pleased - until they received notice that the would-be tavern owner was suing them. He contended that their prayers were responsible for the burning of the building. They denied the charge. At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, the judge wryly remarked, "At this point I don't know what my decision will be, but it seems that the tavern owner believes in the power of prayer and these church people don't."

    ok here goes.

    A painter was hired to paint the ceiling of the cathedral.  He sets up his scaffolding and climbs to the top.  As he is painting he drops his brush and immediately says "son of a b----"

    When he climbs down to retrieve his brush a sister is there praying.  She looks up at him and admonishes him saying "you shouldn't swear in the church.  I know you are disgruntled but you need to pray instead of swear."

    Muttering to himself, the painter climbs back up and continues to paint.  He is just about finished when he again drops his brush.  Again disgruntled but remembering sister below he says "Jesus, Mary and Joseph ....
    Help Me."

    As he says this the brush almost reaching the floor in front of sister starts to rise back up to the painter.

    Sister looks up and says, "Son of a B......"

    Sorry for the profanity but I find this joke very amusing.

    Signs seen on churches in the UK...

    Obviously an area with a lot of real estate for sale:

    "We are the SOUL Agents in this area!!"

    This church must have a lot of HP writers in the area:

    "Can't sleep Don't Count Sheep, talk to the Shepherd!"

    And this church must be in a family area:

    "All services are different.  We leave the repeats to TV."

    This is possibly in a University area:

    "Let us Help you Study for your FINAL EXAMS"

    And maybe this church is in a yuppie area:

    "There are some questions that CAN"T be answered by GOOGLE."

    Of course this church may be in a restoration area:

    "The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth...If that's okay with you!"

    And my two personal favorites...

    "Speak Well of your Enemies, after all You Made Them."

    "Down in the Mouth?...Come in for a Faith Lift"
