Two Evil Brothers

There were two evil brothers. They were rich and used their
money to keep their ways from the public eye. They even
attended the same church and looked to be perfect Christians.

Then, their pastor retired and a new one was hired. Not only
could he see right through the brothers' deception, but he also
spoke well and true, and the church started to swell in numbers.

A fundraising campaign was started to build a new assembly.

All of a sudden, one of the brothers died. The remaining
brother sought out the new pastor the day before the funeral and
handed him a check for the amount needed to finish paying for
the new building.

"I have only one condition," he said. "At his funeral, you must
say my brother was a saint."

The pastor gave his word and deposited the check.

The next day at the funeral, the pastor did not hold back.

"He was an evil man," he said. "He cheated on his wife and
abused his family." After going on in this vein for a small
time, he concluded with,

"But, compared to his brother, he was a saint."
