One Sunday morning during service, a thousand member congregation was surprised to see two men enter, both covered from head to toe in black and carrying what looked like sub-machine guns. One of the men proclaimed, “Anyone willing to take a bullet for Christ remain where you are, otherwise now is your chance to leave, run…RUN NOW!” Immediately, most of the choir fled, most deacons ran out, and most all of the congregation immediately left the building.
Out of the 1,000 there only remained around 20 “willing to give their life for Christ.”
The man who had spoken took off his hood, looked at the preacher and said “Okay Pastor, I got rid of all the hypocrites. Now you may begin your service. ” Then, the two men put down what people now realized were toy rifles, took out their Bibles, and sat down with the true core of the church to hear the Pastor’s message.
