1000 Points?


A man dies and goes to heaven.
Of course, St Peter meets him at the pearly gates.


Peter: ”Here‘s how it works. You need 1000 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the good things you’ve done, and I give you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it is. When you reach 1000 points you get in.”

Man: “Okay, I was married to the same woman for 50 years.”

Peter: “That’s wonderful, that’s worth 3 points.”

Man: “Three points? Well, I attended church all my life and supported its ministries by giving 10% of my income.”

Peter: “I would normally give you 10 points for that, but due to your poor stewardship of the other 90%, I can only give you 1”

Man: “One point?” Golly. How about this; I started a soup kitchen in my city for the homeless.”

Peter: “Fantastic! That’s good for 2 more points.”

Man: “TWO POINTS!! Okay, I’ve been supporting 3 children through World Vision for nearly 10 years."

Peter: “Wonderful, that certainly deserves another 3 points, one for each child.”


The man was stunned as he realized how hard it was going to be to get enough points.


Man: “At this rate, I’ll never reach the 1000 points. The only way I’m going to be able to get into heaven is by the grace of God!”

Peter: “Congratulations!! At last you’ve got the point.
The Lord Jesus has already purchased your ticket, so go on in. One of the angels will take you to the place that has been specially prepared, just for you.”
