St. Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates.St. Peter says, "Here's how it works. You need 100 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 was. When you reach 100 points, you get in."
"Okay," the man says, "I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart."
"That's wonderful," says St. Peter, "That's worth three points!"
"3 points?" he says, slightly concerned.
"Well, I attended church all my life and supported its ministry with my tithe and service." "Terrific!" says St. Peter. "That's certainly worth a point."
"1 point!?!" he moans, now really getting worried.
"I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for homeless veterans." "Fantastic, that's good for two more points," he says."2 points!" the man cries...
"At this rate the only way I get into Heaven is by the grace of God!"
St. Peter nods and says, "Bingo, 100 points! Come on in my son!"
