And there was light...

Another chuckle in a forward of a forward from friend Tim...

Question: How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?

Roman Catholics: None. Who needs 'em when you have candles?

Episcopalians: Three. One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks, and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

Pentecostal: 10. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.

Presbyterians: None. Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine.

Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change.

Baptists: Change! Or spend eternity in a tormenting lake of fire!

Amish: What's a light bulb?

I've got to disagree with your Baptist answer. You left out the committee on electrical illumination maintenance and the voting members of the church who say: "We've never done it that way before!"

Thank you for your suggestion, brother Bryan, I will bring this before the Stewardship and Shepherding subcommittee at Little Flock Baptist at our next session meeting. Your counsel is most appreciated and we thank the Lord for your wisdom and generosity. Peace be upon you.

(I'm Presby so had to fake a Baptist persona, but enough of my childhood churching remains so it wasn't all that difficult). :-}
