The indictments keep coming and coming. It seems today that the lawyers have to hire lawyers to defend themselves! With all that is going on today in court proceedings, I am reminded of a story —
There was a small town that had historically been “dry,” but then a local businessman decided to build a tavern.
A group of Christians from a local church were concerned and planned an all-night prayer meeting to ask God to intervene.
It just so happened that shortly thereafter lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground. The owner of the bar sued the church, claiming that the prayers of the congregation were responsible, but the church hired a lawyer to argue in court that they were not responsible.
The presiding judge, after his initial review of the case, stated that “no matter how this case comes out, one thing is clear. The tavern owner believes in prayer and the Christians do not.”
Thanks to J.K. Johnston for sharing. Thanks to Felix Mittermeier for the photo.
What do YOU think about this case? If the Christians really believed in the power of prayer, why were they afraid to admit it in court? How is this duplicity going on today!
BE USED BY GOD, NOT BY PEOPLE!!!
