By the way, if you think the below jokes are funny, you should read this other article I wrote that gives about 30 more Christian jokes.

Christian Jokes & Other Funny Stories That Will Make You Smile

I also wrote a post about funny church bulletin bloopers and drew a Christian cartoon about selfish prayer and another about how the preacher feels on Sunday morning. But rather than bloopers and cartoons, here is a good, clean, funny Christian joke or two. Enjoy.

A joke about Creation

An atheist scientist came to God and said, “We’ve figured out how to make a man without you.” God said, “OK, let me see you do it.” So the atheist bent down to the ground and scooped up a handful. But God stopped him and said, “Oh, no you don’t. Get your own dirt!”

I don’t want to go to church today!

A mother went to wake her son for church one Sunday morning. When she knocked on his door, he said, “I’m not going!” “Why not?” asked his mother. “I’ll give you two good reasons,” he said. “One, they don’t like me. Two, I don’t like them.” His mother replied, “I’ll give you two good reasons why YOU WILL go to church. One, you’re 47 years old. Two, you’re the pastor!”

The coin toss

By the time Bobby arrived, the football game had already started. “Why are you so late?” asked his friend. “I couldn’t decide between going to church and going to the football game. So I tossed a coin,” said Bobby. “But that shouldn’t have taken too long.” said the friend. “Well, I had to toss it 35 times.”

The $100 and $1

Two well-worn bills arrived at the Federal Reserve Bank to be retired – a $100 and a $1. As they traveled down the conveyor belt, they struck up a conversation. The hundred reminisced about the interesting life he had, traveling all over the country. “I’ve been to the finest restaurants, Broadway shows, Las Vegas, and amusement parks,” he said. “I even want on a Caribbean cruise once. Where have you been?” “Oh,” said the one dollar bill, “I’ve been to a Methodist church, an Episcopal church, a Baptist church, and a Lutheran church.” “What’s a church?” asked the hundred.

Sandwiches and weddings

A Jewish rabbi and a Catholic priest were good friends. At a picnic one day, the priest was eating a ham sandwich. “You know,” he said to his friend, “this ham sandwich is delicious. I know you’re not supposed to eat ham, but I don’t understand why such a good thing would be forbidden. When will you break down and try it?” To which the rabbi replied, “At your wedding.”

Top 10 reasons God made Eve
  1. God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the garden because he would not ask for directions.
  2. God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and hand him the remote.
  3. God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him.
  4. God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor, dentist or haircut appointment for himself.
  5. God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the garbage on the curb.
  6. God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing.
  7. As the Keeper of the Garden, since he didn’t have metal sheds or greenhouses, Adam would never remember where he left his tools.
  8. Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden.
  9. As the Bible says, “It is not good for man to be alone!”
  10. When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched His head and said, “I can do much better than that!”
My dad is better than your dad

Three boys on the playground were bragging about their dads. One said. “My dad scribbles a few words, calls it a song and they pay him $50.” “Oh, yeah. My dad scribbles a few words, calls it a poem and they pay him $100.” “That’s nothing,” said the third kid. My dad scribbles a few words, calls it a sermon and it takes six people to collect all the money in the room!”

A four year old’s description of creation

In the beginning, which was close to the start, there wasn’t anything except God, darkness and some gas. The Bible says, “The Lord, thy God, is one,” but I think He has to be much older than that. Anyway, God made the world and then He said, “Give me some light,” and somebody gave it to Him. He split an atom and made Eve. Adam and Eve didn’t wear any clothes, but they weren’t embarrassed because God hadn’t invented mirrors, yet. Adam and Eve sinned by eating one bad apple and they were driven out of the Garden of Eden. I’m not sure what God drove them in because He hadn’t invented cars, either. Adam and Eve’s son, Cain, hated his brother as long as he was Abel. After a while, all of the first people died, except Methuselah, who lived to be, like, a million years old.

Jonah and the whale

One day, a teacher was talking to her first grade class about whales when a little girl had a question.

Little Girl: “Do whales swallow people?”

Teacher: “No, even though they are much bigger than a person, they have throat pleats that filter their food of krill and plankton.

Little Girl: “But Mrs. Thurston says Jonah was swallowed by a whale.”

Teacher getting angry: “Blue whales cannot swallow people.”

Little Girl: “Well, when I get to heaven I’ll just ask Jonah if he was really swallowed by a whale.”

Teacher, still red with anger: “What if Jonah went to hell?”

Girl: “Well, then you can ask him.”

Suddenly, a fashioned man with a necklace with a cross pendant approached the preacher and said, Sir, I believe in Jesus you preached to the people, but let me ask you a question; the preacher said its fine go on and ask, the man asked; “Do you know who is in this cross i wear? the Preacher said ; I don’t know. for you who is it? the man answered firmly , “it is Jesus! the preacher was shocked! “What? is that Jesus? Oh I don’t think so, Jesus Christ was risen and does not remained on the cross, maybe that’s the thief beside Jesus. When the man heard the preacher’s comment he was very angry…..

  1. Christian pick-up lines:
    #1: “My parents are home, wanna come over?”
    #2: “I didn’t believe in predestination until now.”
    #3: “Is it hot in here or is that just the Holy Spirit burning inside of you?”

  2. A Jewish rabbi and a Catholic priest were good friends. At a picnic
    one day, the priest was eating a ham sandwich. “You know,” he said to
    his friend, “this ham sandwich is delicious. I know you’re not supposed
    to eat ham, but I don’t understand why such a good thing would be
    forbidden. When will you break down and try it?”

    To which the rabbi replied, “At your wedding.”

    So Father never checks his email or I’d send that one too him!  I’ll be sure to tell it to him sometime, hes the kind who could laugh and not be offended.

  3. A Christian Puppy

    A Baptist couple decide that they want to get a dog. As they are
    walking down the street in town, they notice that a sign in the pet shop
    is advertising “Christian Puppies.” Their interest piqued, they go

    “How do you know they’re Christian puppies?”

    “Watch,” says the owner, as he takes one of the dogs and says, “Fetch the Bible.” The dog runs over to the desk, and grabs
    the Bible in its mouth and returns. Putting the Bible on the floor, the
    owner says, “Find Psalm 23.” The dog flips pages with its paw until he
    reaches the right page, and then stops. Amazed and delighted, the couple
    purchase the dog and head home.

    That evening, they invite
    some friends over and show them the dog, having him run through his
    Psalm 23 routine. Impressed, one of the visitors asks “Does he also know
    ‘regular’ commands?”

    “Gee, we don’t know. We didn’t ask,” replies the husband.

    Turning to the dog, he says, “Sit.” The dog sits. He says, “Lie down.”
    The dog lies down. He says “Roll over.” The dog rolls over.

    He says “Heel.” The dog runs over to him, jumps up on the sofa, puts both paws on the owner’s forehead and bows his head.

    “Oh look!” the wife exclaims. “He’s PENTECOSTAL!”

    • A boy who doesn’t usually go to church is forced by his parent to go.at church he finds dat its buptising day.the pastor says “in the name of the father,the son and the holly spirit.you are now a new creation!”dipping people 3 tym in water.the boy was impressed.he went home,filled a bath tub with water,took a beer,dipping it 3 times in water and said “you are a new creation!I now pronounce you coca cola.


  4. A young boy was found standing on a bible and he was asked; why his standing on a bible and the boy said today in church our pastor told us to stand on the word of God.

  5. There were two pastors in a small town. One was always jealous of the other and jumped at the chance to embarrass him in public. One day the good pastor had just given an amazing sermon and the congregation stood up and started clapping heavily. The jealous pastor shouted, ” I heard that same sermon a year ago.” The good pastor stated,” Oh really, I heard you speak just last week and I don’t remember a word you said.”

  6. I felt inlove with this Christian Joke side. Dat’s pure creativeness. So keep on doing good, and God bls U

  7. There was a very old, rich man who realized he was dying, and he kept praying very earnestly that he be allowed to take 1 suitcase full of gold with him to heaven. One night an angel appeared to him and said, “God has heard your prayers. When you die, you can take one suitcase full of anything you want.”
    The man finally died and showed up at the pearly gates with his suitcase, but St. Peter stopped him and said, “You can’t take that in here!” The man answered, telling him what the angel had said. St. Peter made the man wait at the gate while he verified his story, and then said reluctantly, “Apparently it’s okay. Come on in. But will you tell me what it was you so desperately wanted to bring to heaven?”
    The man showed him all the gold bars he had packed carefully into the suitcase.
    Peter’s mouth hung open in disbelief. “You could have brought ANYthing! Why did you bring paving stones?”

  8. I didn’t really think your jokes were that funny. Here is one that I like a lot. Title: “Devil in church” Devil walks into church one day, sits right down in the front row seat. Scares the whole congregation. Everybody flees out all the exits, leaving only two people in the church besides the devil. The Pastor and a old man, a farmer. The devils says to the Pastor, now I know why your not afraid of me, because God protects all his preachers, but the devil says to the old mad the farmer. But Sir I can’t figure out why your not scared of me. So the old man, said to the devil, “Well why should I be scared of you” I’ve been married to your sister for 47 years.

  9. I have another Christian joke, Title:” Man praying to God”

    Man is praying to God, saying I follow all your commandments, I don’t live in vain, could you please grant me one wish: God says, what would you like my son? Man says build me a bridge from California to Hawaii and back. God says: That’s kind of a tall order: Can you give me something much easier? The man says, okay God tell me everything there is to know about a woman and why she thinks the way she thinks: And Goes says, so do you want a two lane or a four lane bridge!

    • I grues there’s no going back to the posted jokes and correcting any spelling. As I have had a stroke and my left arm is paralyzed and I only type with my index finger. And I’m always making spelling errors. Oh well. My stroke is what brought me to Jesus Christ back in 2005. I have quite a testimony of how I became a reborn Christian. At the age of 55 yrs. old. I’m now almost 64 yrs. old coming October 1st. I was born in Pierre, South Dakota in 1950. And now I carry the cross 7 days a week. And my name is Kit Tunney Telford

    kya ho raha hai? g boy that u will go to hell because you don’t go to the church.
    Then one day the boy died and found himself in the line which led to the gates of hell and was very disparate for not obeying the priest.

A elder walk pass by him and see that he was drunk, so the elder was disappointed and walk up to him and ask the young man ” aren’t you a Christian? Look at you, you are drunk. Why would you wear a Jesus’s cross neckless? Are you trying to make christain look bad?” The young man look up to the elder and said,” this ain’t Jesus cross, this are the thieves cross.
