Lessons Matt Kennedy Learned When Attempting Theft - #8

8. Should you have a “spirit filled” person on the vestry who argues that strategic planning for various eventualities, including defeat, is faithless; that Christians should trust God and expect and plan only for victory, do not listen. You will be very sorry if you do. Trust God to provide everything that you need every step of the way and recognize that his grace often operates in and through the careful deliberation and planning of the leaders he has appointed.
As every schismatic should know by now, if God’s track record in these church property theft cases is anything to go by you’re better off trusting someone more sympathetic to your own interests. Like yourself.

Oh yes, TRUST in God, in ALL matters will often leave one in a bind...afterall, facing the mischiefmaking and manipulating as the vile character behavior that is exhibited and REALLY REFLECTS is a clear NO/NO! It´s best to keep sprinting headlong with self-willpower (covering all the angles) until one hits the CEMENT WALL of God, and your fellows, who say NO to your selfrighteous, greedy and unholy DEMANDS!

And I have no faith whatsoever, especially not in this "mainline" nonsense.

I've just spent some time glancing through the 76 comments to the original posting on Viagra Central. o my! I did not have the stomach, nor the time, for more. A little internecine cat-fight seems the order of the day over there. Quite delightful actually in a morbid sort of way. But when the feline feces start flying, accurate directions to the vomitorium are in order. (Also can't wait for your exegesis of the "spy" concepts coming up! Whot!

Fr. Hugh and beloved victims of Southern Baptisted abuse,

The loss of Dr George Rekers has been the hardest *adjustment* for me of my maledonhood...he promised and promised if I just kept carrying those faux Louis Vuitton steamer trunks (filled with twenties) around for just ONE MORE YEAR (decade after decade) he´d share his formula secret for youthful hairtipping (so aptly named Death In Oxnard)...you can imagine the hurt I still feel as the roots of all evil grow out and I´m feeling, oh so old, ugly and used-up! I was counting on that particular restoration to keep my double chins up. Brute
