Years ago on Art Linkletter’s House Party Art…

Years ago on Art Linkletter’s House Party Art asked a small boy, “What does your mother do?” He replied, “She’s a Sunday School teacher.” Art then asked, “What does she do for fun?” The little fellow didn’t hesitate in answering, “She plays poker and drinks beer!” The audience roared and Art blushed and looked sheepishly about. There have been plenty of Sunday School teachers, deacons, elders, preachers and church members like this one. There are too many casual Christians; they dabble in everything but are not sold on anything. They have a passing acquaintance with the Lord but are not committed to His cause. On Sunday they sing, “My Jesus I love thee, I know thou art mine; for thee all the follies of sin I resign.” But by Monday they have re-signed. This is no time for lukewarm Christianity! It is high time for Christians to get busy being Christians. This is Just-A-Minute.
