A Priest, a Rabbi, and a minister walk into a bar.
The Rabbi suggest, “Hey let’s get one of the patrons to ask us a really hard question about God and get them to agree to buy each of us a beer if one of us can answer it.”
“Good idea”, the other two said.
So they make an announcement and ask if anybody would like to ask them a really hard question about God, and if they could stump all three then they would receive a free beer. Several raised their hands, and so they randomly picked a guy. The guy thought for a minute and then asked his question. The three men of the cloth were all stumped. So they buy the guy a drink and agreed this had to be a fluke. We combined have been in the ministry for a long time. So they tried it again, and then again. After several attempts they left the bar embarrassed and broke!
How would your Rabbi, Priest or Minister do? Yes this was a joke, but not a funny one. It’s actually sad, because these men are supposed to know God and His word. If the one you listen to week after week was not sharing with you God’s word accurately, would you know?
Each of us has a responsibility to know God’s word for ourselves. When we hear scripture we should recognize it. If we are attending a place of worship and we hear anything other than the true word of God we should run! Read God’s word for yourself. Memorize it, learn it. It will serve you well in more ways than you know.
