PENSACOLA, Florida (NN) -- In an effort to 'plant the seed' with lost people in his community, Rev. Jeremy Ironside of Overlook Blvd Church of the Nazarene invested the entire outreach budget to purchase a John 3:16 shirt for every member of his congregation. Tragically Rev. Ironside lacks the gift of proofreading T-shirt orders...
When Rev. Ironside opened the shipment of T-shirts, he decided to field test the T-shirt by wearing one to a restaurant for lunch. “People are looking at me with a quizzical look as if they’ve never seen the crazy guys at football games with ‘John 3:16’ signs. A Jewish guy walks by and says, ‘Isn’t it supposed to be John 3:16?’ I look down at the shirt, and it says ‘John 31:6’. I don’t even know what that verse says!”
Rev. Ironside was further mortified to find that the book of John only has twenty one chapters, so John 31:6 does not even exist. Part-time secretary and pastor of assimilation, Stacey Hamilton confirmed that the T-shirts matched the order perfectly, so no refund was possible.
“The board is going to be ticked off about this. I talked them into cancelling scholarships for kid’s camp so that we could buy these T-shirts. I guess I’ve learned something here. The devil will do anything to trip up those who are building the Kingdom of God.”

Have a great weekend!
