If we could only get rid of him and get another preacher I might come to church." Well, brother, try this: 1. Look him straight g~.~ ~re while he is preaching, ~l~a.y "torten" once in ~ whi~. E[~ ~l~h him- self to death in a few weel~ 2 Pat him on the back and brag on his good points. [[eql work him- self to death. 3 ~]~ededieate your own life to Chri~ and ask the preacher to give yo~ a job to do. He'll die of heart failure. 4. Get the church to unite in prayer for the preacher, and he will soon be- come so effective some larger church will take him off your hands.
