Doesn’t matter, Presbyterians really don’t have a sense of humor!
“Doesnt matter, Presbyterians really dont have a sense of humor!”
YES THEY DO:
My Evangelical Presbyterian Pastor told this joke in church:
Note: (The Presbyterians, even the politically conservative branch of it the Evangelical Presbyterians are not known to have spirited services. Nice services, but dont expect to see lots hands waving, hallelujahs from the back roll being shouted, Alter calls, that sort of thing. If you are shy, the EPC is a good church for you.)
The FOUR PASTORS
Four Pastors from different churches were sitting on a park bench, enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon, when they started debating which denomination would be the first called up to Heaven.
The Catholic Minister said certainly Catholics will be first, because they have such great compassion and have done such great works that is pleasing in God’s eyes. We have built the Worlds most beautiful churches, and hold on to the ancient Catholic profession of the Christian Faith, and have produced many martyrs.
The Pentecost Pastor said, no, we will rise first, because we are filled with the Holy Spirit, and we celebrate our faith with joyful music and inspirational sermons, bringing thousands to Christ each week. We certainly deserve to be the first called up.
The Baptist Pastor said you are both wrong, because we have spread the Gospel of Christ around the globe like no other, and have sacrificed much in doing so. And we hold strong to the words of the teachings of the Apostles, our brothers in Christ. God certainly intends to catch us up first.
The Presbyterian Pastor said all three of you are wrong. The Bible says the Dead in Christ will rise first, leaving the other three will jaws dropped , and the Presbyterian smiling with pride.
