The Preacher And The Cowboy
A pastor at a frontier church ended a stirring sermon with, “All those who want to go to heaven, put up your hands!” Everybody enthusiastically raised their hands…. everybody except a grizzled old cowboy who had been slouching against the door post at the back of the room.
All heads turned as he sauntered up to the front, spurs jangling and said, “Preacher, that was too easy. How d’ya know if these folks are serious? I c’n gar-an-tee to prove who really means it an’ who don’t!”
Bemused and not a little frightenened the preacher said, “Ok, stranger, go ahead and put the faith of these good people to the test. Ask them anything you want.”
At that the cowpoke pulled his twin six-shooters, turned to the audience and said, “Alright… who wants to go heaven… raise your hands!”
