Bible quote joke

    A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

    When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10." Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.

    Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock."

    Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."

    what about this one :

    Brother John entered the "Monastery of Silence" and the Abbott said, "Brother, this is a silent monastery. You are welcome here as long as you wish, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so."

    Brother John lived in the monastery for 5 years before the Abbott said to him: "Brother John, you have been here 5 years now. You may speak two words."

    Brother John said, "Hard Bed."

    "I'm sorry to hear that," the Abbott said. "We will get you a better bed."

    After another 5 years, Brother John was called by the Abbott. "

    You may say another two words, Brother John."

    "Cold Food," said Brother John, and the Abbott assured him that the food would be better in the future.

    On his 15th anniversary at the monastery, the Abbott again called Brother John into his office. "Two words you may say today."

    "I Quit," said Brother John.

    "It is probably best," said the Abbott. "You've done nothing but complain since you got here."

    This is pretty sad............... JWs were upset by the jokes, so he had to close that section of his site!

    The Only Collection of Jehovah's Witnesses Jokes on the NetI have regretfully decided to take down the JW humor, primarily because of the extraordinary amount and viciousness of the hate mail I have been receiving from current JWs and others. These jokes were collected for the purpose of creating a distanced space of amusement for former JWs. They are very mild jokes, enough for a wry smile or two, but it seems as though the page was not serving its intended purpose. Please visit my advice to former JWs page to get a sense of what I was attempting to do here.

    If you would still like to have the collection, please contact me. I would be happy to email it to you in pdf format if your email is at least civil in tone.
