How wonderful...How great.. How hilarious... And yet, how sad. Poor Baptists - When push comes to shove, they back away. It's like the Methodist Church that was on fire in the 1920s in a Southern US town. The horse drawn water wagon was heading out to rescue what they could. Everyone in town were running out the church. The Deacon caught up to the Town Atheist who has stopped for breath. The Deacon began to laugh. He said: "Imagine seeing the town atheist in such a hurry to get to Church that he has to stop for breath." The atheist wanting to have the last word retorted: "It's the First time your Church has been on FIRE." Why not say: "Yes, praise God. He does answer prayer and you had better ask Him about the Lightening Strike. He can speak for Himself." - Pastor Max Solbrekken


A bar called Drummond's in Mt Vernon, Texas  began construction on an expansion of their building, hoping to "grow" their business.

In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding - petitions, prayers, etc.

About a week before the bar's grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning struck the bar and burned it to the ground!

Afterward, the church folks were rather smug - bragging about "the power of prayer".

The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the church... "Was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building,
through direct actions or indirect means."

Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise.

The judge read carefully through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply.

He then opened the hearing by saying:

"I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but as it appears from the paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in
the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

True story !!
