Getting to Heaven … through an Irish child’s mind

You gotta love the Irish people.

A true Story from an Irish Sunday School Teacher:

… Editor’s Note: All stories reputed to be true, per the Internet, are true!

I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.

I asked them: If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me into heaven?

‘NO!’ the children answered.

If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?

Again, the answer was ‘NO!’

If I gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?

Again, they all answered ‘NO!’

I was just bursting with pride for them. I continued: Then how can I get into heaven?

A little boy shouted out: ‘YUV GOTTA BE FOOKN’ DEAD.’



Thanks to George Harris for passing along this bit of humor.
