SERIES: FRIDAY HUMOR #32
A preacher in the South preached constantly on water baptism. The people were tired of it. The deacons suggested he preach on something else. He said, “Okay, give the text and I’ll preach on it. ” They gave him Genesis 1:1. The next Sunday he said, “By request the text today is Genesis 1:1.” He read it and then said, “When the Lord created the earth, He made it one-fourth land and three-fourths water, and that brings me back to the subject of water baptism.”
