I’ve run into some odd people in my life, but a fellow I met the other day just might be the strangest of them all. He says he believes in the Bible, but he never reads it. He thinks that prayer changes things, but he doesn’t pray. He says he thinks highly of the church, but he never attends worship services. This guy says that people need the Lord, but he never tells anyone that. My new acquaintance feels that a person should be honest to God about money matters, but he is very stingy. He says the church needs dedicated people, but he isn’t one. This fellow says that he believes the Lord is returning soon, but he lives as though he never will.
He is a strange fellow, indeed!
