Three Baptist ministers and their wives got into a car crash and died one day. They found themselves standing at the pearly gates together before St. Peter.
St. Peter opened his big book, pointed to the first minister, and said, "You're going to Hell."
"What? Why?" cried the minister.
"Because you lusted after money. You never actually stole any money, but in your heart you were constantly thinking about money. Why, you had money on your mind so much that you even married a woman named Penny. So you're going to Hell."
And in a puff of smoke, the first minister disappeared. St. Peter flipped a few pages in his book and pointed to the second minister.
"You are also going to Hell," he said sternly.
"Why?" said the anguished minister.
"For the sin of lusting after alcohol. You never actually drank any alcohol, but you constantly lusted after it in your heart. You lusted after it in your heart so much that you even married a woman named Brandy. So you're going to Hell."
And in a puff of smoke, the second minister disappeared.
The third minister turned to his wife and said, "Well, Cissy, it's been nice knowing you."
