Two elders drove to a nearby Applebee's after an early evening meeting at church. While waiting for a table, they sat in the bar drinking a beer. When their pastor walked by, one quickly said, "Oh, I hope Pastor didn't see us."
"What difference does that make?" asked the other. "God knows we're having a beer."
"Sure," replied the first, "but God won't tell my wife."
