The book Understanding Spiritual and Mental Health, by Divaldo Pereira Franco, documents a lecture given by Divaldo Franco in the US. At the end of his lecture he told a story of a conversation he had with a spirit;
“And then the Spirit told me a joke. Spirits tell jokes! He said that several spirits were having a conversation and one of them told the story of a soul who went to God and asked: ‘Lord, I have no idea of what eternity means. For example, a billion years, how much time is that in the clock of eternity? ‘
God answered: ‘A billion years, one second.’
The soul then asked, ‘And Lord, one billion dollars, how much is that worth to you?’
God answered: ‘A billion dollars, one cent.’
Then the soul asked God, ‘Lord, could you spare me one cent?’
And God answered: ‘Wait, I’ll give it to you in just a second!'”
