    A Baptist man, a Pentecostal woman, and a Calvinist all die and get to the gates of Heaven.

    Peter tells them, “You’ve all been faithful, but to get into Heaven I am going to need to interview each of you in private to make sure you're going to make it.”

    At this point the Baptist and Pentecostal are sweating bullets. Peter chooses the Baptist to go first. So, they go into a small room and are in there for 6 hours. The Pentecostal lady knows that if the Baptist man is having this hard of a time she really must be in trouble. Finally, after the six hours, the Baptist comes out and goes “Whew, I made it.”

    Still, nervous the Pentecostal lady takes her turn and goes in. After 12 hours the Baptist guy was starting to wonder if she would pass, but sure enough she comes out and says “Whew, I made it.”

    The Calvinist confidently walks into the room and shuts the door behind him. He’s in there for over 24 hours and the Pentecostal and Baptist are really starting to wonder what the heck is going on.

    Finally, St. Peter comes out and says, “Whew, I made it!”

    I wish I could take credit for it, but it's an oldie and a goodie.

    Actually, the joke is not funny at all.

    It pictures the Apostle Peter as having been wrong about Salvation all along, which is Biblically proven to be a falsehood.

    The joke is actually quite arrogant.

    Dr. Bob, Dr. Arch, and Convicted all made it to heaven the same day. St Peter says, all three of you are welcome, but there is one rule. Do not step on the ducks. Dr. Bob walks around about 15 minutes and sure enough, he steps on a duck. Here comes Peter and handcuffs Janet Reno to Dr. Bob. Peter tells Dr. Bob, "you will be handcuffed to her for eternity for stepping on the ducks. Convicted 1 makes it about two days and steps on a duck. Peter brings Rosie O'Donnell, handcuffs her to Convicted and tells Convicted the same thing. Dr. Arch goes for centuries without stepping on a duck. Finally one day, Peter brings Marilyn Monroe over to Dr. Arch and handcuffs her to him. Peter then says, "Marilyn, this is your punishment for stepping on the ducks."
