    This person said, according to reliable sources, a certain person at a certain local church did something that, while doesn’t technically violate the letter of any of the Ten Commandments, is unseemly for, as this person put it, “church people.”
    That same week my pastor said someone came to him and informed him that a certain person who was attending the pastor’s class with the intent of joining the church was, indeed, not a very nice person, maybe even a despicable one.

  • Have you ever heard someone say, “All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti?”  
    Have you ever wondered what the difference is?  
    Well, in the most basic sense, cacti are succulents that do not have leaves.  However, the mere presence of spines (the prickly part of cacti) is not the sole indicator that a plant is a cactus. The various families are actually determined by flower form (just like the orchid).
