  1. I quote Wendall Barry from the beginning of Jayber Crow, “Persons attempting to explain, interpret, explicate, analyze, deconstruct, or otherwise “understand” will be exiled to a desert island in the company of only other explainers.”

  2. “Explanations are for when you get home and your wife has questions about the sermon. 1 Corinthians 14:33-35.”

  3. He understood the meaning of the sign out front as he walked into the foyer and saw the giant statue of the number 42.

    Sign found on the front of all Church of Scientology buildings.

  4. We had to post this sign because the sign on the church next door said, “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service”

  5. We posted this sign at our church’s entrance because the church next door had the following sign posted: “NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO SERVICE”

  6. “We had to find some solution to the problem. Ever since our youth pastor challenged the students to commit to reading the Bible every day, they’ve actually started listening to our pastor’s sermons and have even begun asking him tough questions about how our church can better follow Jesus and his teaching in everything we do. Those kinds of things just can’t be tolerated in our congregation.”

  7. “The job description said “supportive and enthusiastic community” when it said there wereretired preachers and seminary professors in the congregation,” sighed Jim Bob after his first congregational meeting.

  8. “Theological Presuppositionalism finally becomes part of the woodwork… Van Til would be proud”
