Some religious anecdotes from an old book:-

1.Prohibitions and restrictions

A little lesson in morality was imparted to the youngster who asked his father

What is a necessary evil?

One that we like so much we don’t want to abolish it, replied his parent.

2.Sin and Sinners

An old Negro preacher, wearied of the many complaints he heard about the temptations placed in the paths of the members of his congregation by Satan:

“Folks is all de time making out dat Satan is running after them fo’ to tempt them. De truth is , dere is so many people pulling at the Debil’s coattails, he ain’t got de time to chase nobody”.

God can see all the Doors!

In the days of the great Edwin Booth, most ministers considered it a sin to attend theatrical performances. However, one clergyman, anxious to see the great actor  perform, sent Mr Booth a letter asking if he might be permitted to enter the theatre by a private door as he did not wish anyone to see him going into such a place.

Booths’s reply

“Sir, there is no door in my theatre through which god cannot see”.

Prayers

Bion was sailing in a vessel, when great storm came on. The mariners, who were wicked and dissolute fellows, called upon the gods; but Bion said,

“Peace; let them not know you are here”.

Tell God that I did it!

After the capture of Ticonderoga, Ethan Allan, the American patriot, hurried home to his family in Bennington, Vermont, and while there attended a Thanks giving service at the old First Church.  Town history says during the long prayer in which the Rev Mr Dewey was giving all the credit for the victory to the Lord, Allen interrupted:

“Parson Dewey, Parson Dewey!”

At the third call, the minister paused and opened his eyes.

“Please, said Allen, mention to the Lord about my being there”.
