A Very Funny hypocrite Situation (MUST READ)

In a small town in America, a person decided to open up his bar
business, which was right opposite to a church. The church & its
congregation started a campaign to block the bar from opening with
petitions and prayed daily against his business.

Work progressed. However, when it was almost complete and was about to
open a few days later, a strong lightning struck the bar and it was
burnt to the ground. The church folk were rather smug in their outlook
after that, till The bar owner sued the church authorities for
$2million on the grounds that the church through its congregation &
prayers was ultimately responsible For the demise of his bar shop,
either through direct or indirect actions or means.

In its reply to the court, the church vehemently denied all
responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to
the bar shop’s demise. In support of their claim they referred to the
Benson study at Harvard that inter-cessionary prayer had no impact !

As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the
paperwork and at the hearing and commented:

‘I don’t know how I am going to decide this case, but it appears from
the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer
and we have an entire church and its devotees that doesn’t.’

    If the judge had accepted all this and judged in favor of the bar owner, then the US government would have to acknowledge again that there is a God, that He is real and all powerful so the govnt. again would allow the Bible to be read in schools and govmnt offices and God would be In His place again in the Bible/Faith constituted nation.
    For the record, God is real, He reads your thoughts and intentions, He counts every step you take every day and knows how many hairs you have on your head. So, be careful what you say or even think about Him or he will show himself to you. He will drop you off your high horse with lightning and thunder like he did Saul, later known as the apostle Paul.
    He takes no sides except for those who believe wholeheartedly.
    Yes, there are hypocrites everywhere but that doesnt give you a free pass to deny Him or judge others. be careful bar owners and patrons and church goers alike.
    Case in point: this church that had a statue of Jesus (first mistake “dont build idols”) that had his hand up in the air. People called it “touchdown Jesus”. What happened to it? A lightning struck it and burned it down..
    If you half-believe, never take Him as a joke.
    If you dont believe, watch out for yourself.
    “I am a jealous God!” He says
