A story is told of two masked gunmen who walked into a church, just as the service was about to start. Pointing their machine guns at the congregation, one of them announced that all those who would not take a bullet for Jesus could leave. At that, most of the congregation hurried out, except for about twenty trembling people preparing to die.
Then, the one who had spoken took off his mask, casually put away his gun and said, “There you go, pastor. The hypocrites are all gone. You can now start the service.”
