A religious man is on top of a roof during a great flood. Another man comes by in a boat and says "get in, get in!" The religious man replies, “No I have faith in God, He will grant me a miracle."
Later, the water is up to his waist and another boat comes by and the driver tells him to get in. He responds that he has faith in God and God will save him.
With the water at chin high, a helicopter throws down a ladder and they tell him to get in, mumbling with the water in his mouth, he again turns down the request for help for the faith of God. He finally drowns and arrives at the gates of heaven with broken faith.
The man says to St. Peter, “I thought God would grant me a miracle, I was faithful to the end, but God let me down." St. Peter chuckles and responds, "I don't know what you're complaining about, we sent you two boats and a helicopter."
