A church dismissed its pastor because he kept telling them they were going to hell. Surprisingly, though, the man they called to be their new pastor also told them they were bound for hell, but they did not have a problem with him.
When someone questioned a church member about the difference between the two pastors, the church member replied, “The difference is that when the first pastor told us we were going to hell, he sounded like he was glad about it, but when the new pastor says it, he sounds like it breaks his heart.”
It ought to break our hearts that people are lost.
