Re: You might be Pentecostal if ....

That is so funny! And, amazingly true!

One more-

You are called to the principals office for the deaded "talk" when your kids, while playing church at recess, is standing on a bench, laying hands on the "sick"!

True story. It was suggested that I "curb" our childrens exposure to church services!


Why is it, after you read, re-read, and proof-read, your posts, but you never see that one big mistake until you hit the "Submit" button?

Re: You might be Pentecostal if ....

I've seen this list several times recently but one of my additional favorite is:
If you get married on a Saturday night, your expected to be in church the next morning.

(I know this personally to be true. Probably because the new couple want to finally be seen sitting together -since they were never allowed to previously.)
