Sermon Illustration… gone wrong!

August 9, 2009 - 10:02 am 27 Comments

A  pious minister wanted to make a point about the nature of sin to his congregation…. So he thought a convincing visual demonstration would add emphasis to his moralistic points…

He placed four worms in four separate jars…

The first was placed into a jar of alcohol. The second worm was placed into a jar of smoke. The third was placed in a jar of sexual fluids. The fourth worm was then placed in a jar of good, clean soil…

After a while, the worm in the alcohol died. Then, the worm in the smoke died. Shortly thereafter, the worm in the fluids died. However, the worm that was placed in the good clean soil was alive!

So then the minister said to his congregation: What can we learn from this demonstration? A little old woman, from the back of the room,quickly raised her hand, and stated:” As long as you drink, smoke, and have sex, you will not get worms!”
