Do you want me to read it to you?

A man came into a shop with a ‘Salesman Wanted’ sign in a window. He went up to the owner and said, “I-I-I w-w-waannn-t the j-joooob-b.”

“I don’t know if this job would suit you because of your speaking impediment,” said the owner.

“I h-h-havvve a w-wi-wiiiife and s-s-s-six k-kkkids, iiii-I re-really neeeed thi- thi-this j-j-job!” said the man.

“O.K. Here are three Bibles. Go out and sell them,” said the owner. So the man went out and came back an hour later. “H-here-sss your m-m-money.” said the man. The owner was impressed, so he gave the man a dozen more Bibles and sent him out. The man came back in two hours and said, “her-ers y-yooour m-m-money.”

The owner said, “This is fantastic. You sold more Bibles in three hours than anyone has sold in a week. Tell me, what do you say to the people when they come to the door?” “W-welllll,” said the man, “I r-r-ring the d-door bell, a-a-and s-s-say ‘H-Hel-Hello, M-m-maaaaddam, d-d-do you w-w-want t-t t-to buy thi-thi-this B-B-Bible, oooor d-d-do y-you w-w-want m’me t-toooo read it t-t-t-t-to you?”

    Nice blog. Keep it up …

    Sorry for posting an off topic question here but I think this particular one has a profound impact on our society.

    The Pope says ?Harry Potter corrupts the young, distorting their understanding of the battle between good and evil?. In a way, he is saying ?Harry is Evil, Potter is Satan!?

    Well, we know orthodox Christians also despise Uncle Santa Claus and all those at DisneyWorld, do you fancy a world without Cinderella, Snow White and Mr. Mickey Mouse?

    do you fancy christmas without the christmas tree?

    this is a grey area, it’s up to personal preference. and i’m already sticking out my neck for saying this.

    we can go on and on about this, but to me, the most important question is: if you were God [if it's possible to imagine that], would you approve?

    P.S. I only saw the first movie halfway and have no interest at all in the books. And my daughter thinks it’s boring… and that a devout relative brought his daughter to all the HP movies.
