    As for as I know, that's a first!

    I haven't decided yet if I agree or disagree, but it's original.

    Interesting, although I kind of disagree with his approach. A pastor shouldn't be "for sale." It sounds too much like a business agreement instead of a calling.

    Gotta give the man points for creativity, though!

    Who's to say that the call can't come in this form? Anyway, we need some thinking outside of the traditional box. The traditional seems to be failing in so many ways.

    I wonder if the lemon law applies.

    30-day money back guarantee!

    Or maybe 90 days same as cash!

    Seems to me the calling should be of God, not the one who bids the most cash! Poor people need the Word just as much as the rich.

    Why? It seems like the old cynical joke, "God is everywhere. Follow the money."

    I guess you could hide the parts in that washer dryer if he mysteriously came up missing. I think he took "dew" drops of mercy too literal.

    Looks like he has a Church I wonder how many members he has and why he wants to leave?

    That's what I was wondering. Well, looks like the reserve wasn't met and bidding has ended, so he may stay put or relist - we'll see. (There were actually over 20 bids!!) :laugh:

    This must be some kind of a joke! Surely, even in America, it cannot be serious! :laugh: A pastor selling himself and his family on e-bay? Who is to stop an atheist or a member of a cult from "buying" them? Then what? Or to take a less extreme possibility, supposing they are "bought" by a church that does not share his theology? I wonder what his present church thinks about it, and why he is leaving.
