"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.
Given the opportunity, He will trim the unproductive suckers and shape the branches so each one will bask in Sonlight.

A Pagan's Nightmare

      A Pagan's Nightmare is not for the religiously faint-of-heart. And especially not for Southern Baptists who take their religion very seriously. Ray Blackston exhibits the rare ability to sound irreverent while dishing out copious portions of hard truth. This is a book about a book written by a cynical agnostic named Larry Hutch, who is that way because of "Christians" in his past who have burned him.
      If you profess Christ, and this book makes you uncomfortable with your religious culture, Ray has succeeded in his mission. If, however, you profess Christ, and this book makes you fire off unkind correspondence to the author, you, my dear brother or sister, need to examine your heart to see if maybe you love your religion more than your Savior.
