Although in my church I was intrigued when I found out that one of the most regular users of the web site was in his 80s.
      Change??? There are plenty of denominational jokes about not liking change

      I belong to an older congregation so I know one or two people who are on Facebook and look forward to our pastor's blog posts that get shared on there. I've invited a few members here and sometimes I wonder if they're watching!

      There are jokes about just about everything
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.
