This has to be my absolute favorite religious joke.
The local Baptist minister and Methodist minister get together each week to pray together for their town and banter with each other in a good natured way. On this particular occasion, the Baptist brings up his favorite subject: baptism.
Baptist: I still just don’t understand how you can think that a little water sprinkled on the top of a head qualifies for a valid baptism. Everyone knows you have to go all the way under the water and up again to really be baptized.
Methodist: So, what you’re telling me is that if I go in the water up to my knees that isn’t a valid baptism?
B: No, that’s not a valid baptism. You have to go all the way under.
M: So, if I go in up to my waist that doesn’t count?
B: No! You have to go all the way in.
M: So if I go up to my chest…
B: What part of this are you not understanding?
M: So if I go up to my chin…
B: All the way in. All the way down under the water.
M: So if the water goes up to my eyes…
B: NO! THAT IS NOT A VALID BAPTISM!
M: That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you all along. It’s that little bit of water on the top of the head that makes all the difference in the world!
