Daily Joke: Man Says He Doesn't Want to Go to Heaven Then Changes His Mind
A priest happened to be in Chicago for a sermon, and after concluding the church service, he decided to explore the city. So he began surveying the whereabouts, going to several different spots, and interacting with locals on the way.
While walking around, he noticed that the city had a large number of discos and bars, which were overflowing with both men and women. He worried that going to such places might have adverse effects on people, leading them astray from the righteous path.
"My Lord in the heavens, help these people for they know not what they've got themselves into. Navigate them on the right path and keep them from following the ways of Satan," said the priest, raising his hands in prayer.
As he continued to walk forward, he couldn't help himself seeing people entering the bars one after the other. Finally, when he had had enough, he decided to walk into a bar and rectify the situation himself.
"I must help these people follow your message, Lord. You've sent me down on earth to lead people to the right path, and I will carry out your orders for as long as I live. All praises are for you, my Lord," chanted the priest and then entered the bar.
Once inside, he scanned the area and was astonished to see the people drinking, dancing, and making noise. Nobody seemed to bat an eye at the priest's presence in the bar. To make himself visible, the priest cleared his throat and said in a loud voice,
"Do you want to go to heaven?"
For a brief moment, there was an eerie silence in the bar as the people watched the priest, trying to make sense of what he was doing in such a place. When he received no response, the priest decided to repeat his words once again.
"Do you want to go to heaven?" said the priest, pronouncing every syllable loud and clear.
"I do, Father," replied a man standing in the crowd.
"Good, my son. Now go and stand over there against the wall," said the priest, looking pleased with the young man.
He then turned to the crowd and repeated the same question, "Do you want to go to heaven?"
"I do, Father," answered another man.
"Then go and stand over there against the wall, my child," replied the priest.
Deep down, the priest was delighted because he was gradually succeeding in influencing the people, showing them the right path, and leading them away from sin.
He walked forward and said the same words again, "Do you want to go to heaven?"
"No, I don't, Father," said one man.
"I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?" asked the priest, confused and angry at the man's reply.
"Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now," answered the man.
It looks like the man completely misunderstood the priest at first!
