"I preached last night, Stephen."
"Yeah, I's there. "
"Whur, hidin' in the back?"
"Did you think it was a good servus, or did ya sleep like always?"
"I didn't sleep, I thought it was good."
"I don't think it was. It seemed like no one was listenin', you know?"
"I tried to tell them that everone who's not saved'll be cookin' and bakin' in hell when the trump blows?"
"Yeah, I heerd jee, but, I don't think them people's ever heerd it like that. Come to think of it, they might've took it the wrong way and..."
"Well, that's the way it's goan be, take it or leave it. If ye don't know the Lord, you'll be cookin' and bakin' in hell."
"You right, but they's ways of tellin' it that doan make it hurt so."
"I've heerd them preachers and I think they's after money."
"That might be true, but they's got a big crowd..."
"And when they tell them that heaven is awaitin' and all the offerin' plate just fills with greenbacks. It's a sight to see. But, it don't save 'em. Money doan make it right."
"But, scarin' em doan always make 'em get saved."
"God wants the whole world to come to heaven, but without Jesus their only..."
"Cooking and baking?"
"I have a friend who thinks the devil is workin' for God. He's Jewish and he calls him "Shaton" instead of Satan and he says that God gave him the job of tempting us. Do you believe that? Do you believe the devil is workin' for God?"
"Naw, that's a lie. The devil went 'gainst God long time ago and he's right here with us waitin' fo' the Judgment Day. That's what it tells ya in Revelations."
"Thats what I thinks too. The devil is fightin' God and is trying to get us to go to hell."
"You got it."
"Pastor, why you think there's so many different religions?"
"I don't know, Stephen."
"I think it's because everybody ignores good things and rushes to the bad? Thur trying to get rich and all."
"Maybe, but the thing we have to know is Jesus died for us and whur the children of God."
"The whole point of preaching is to tell people that the world's goan pass away and Jesus is comin'. Satan's not goan to rule in hell, he's goan to suffer with all the people who don't know Jesus."
"Stephen, tell me what I'm doin wrong, you was there. Am I using the right passages or maybe I don't explain them right.
"Pastor, you have to trust the Spirit. You cain't allow yousef to talk to the people, you's got to let God talk to 'em. Just like in Acts. You got to let the Spirit flow out of ya."
"That's good advice."
"You know, there's another thing that might hep the people listen to you."
"Maybe the people doan want to be called "Hell-bound" anymore.
"But they is hellbound, if they doan have Jesus."
"But, if they're saved. You gots to talk to the saved ones to."
"What if they ain't?"
"I think you should tell 'em to get saved, then you got ta tell 'em about the rest of the bible. Let God show 'em. You can always have a alter call near the end, but let God guide you the rest of the servus."
"What could I talk about? All's I know is Jesus."
"That's the best part to know, but I think they's think you judging them and sayin' they's goan to hell when you knows they saved. You baptised 'em yousef."
"But iffin' they ain't got Jesus Christ to save them, then they's lost."
"But, everybody in're church is saved pastor. You's got to show 'em more and tell them about all the whole bible."
"Stephen, you ever thought 'bout preachin', you ever thought about lettin' God talk through you?"
"Naw, I's always let you do the preachin'. Mos the time, I'm sleepin'."
"You do sleep alot in church."
"But I'm dreamin' of heaven cause I know Jesus died for me when He was hanging on that cross. I know I'm saved from hell."
"won't be no cookin' and burnin' for you when this world ends, huh?"
"Nope not for me. Only heaven and angels for me."
