One very hot Sunday morning the whole congregation is sitting there sweating while the good Pastor is telling them all about the good news.
The pastor is on a roll today. He is getting lots of “Ooh’s” and “Aah’s” from the people, as he tells the story of how Jesus is coming down again, and how he is going to punish the wicked, and bless the meak and the faithful.
The usual people are shouting “Praise the Lord!” and “Save us Jesus!” as the pastor delivers his sermon.
Nearing the end of his sermon, at which point the congregation is as worked up as they can get, the Pastor shouts out as hard as he can: “Who wants to go to heaven!!!! Raise your hands!!!!!”
Like one everybody raises their hands. Some people jump up from their seats, some people shout: “Praise the Lord!”, “Praise Jesus”.
Happy with the result the Pastor decides to take it a step further.
He shouts as loud as he can: “Who wants to go to heaven right now!!!!! Raise your hands!!!!”
Not one single hand goes up, except for one old lady who has had enough of this life already.
