The inspiration for this website came from a Scripture song I heard over 10 years ago at a ladies retreat:

Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
A word fitly spoken shall be,
Like Apples of Gold in pictures of silver
Let my life bring glory to thee.

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11

Although some of the "stories" listed are made up, the Scriptural truths they illustrate are very real and can be of great benefit in a Christian's walk with the Lord and as illustrations for the lost.

It is my heart's desire that amongst the pages of this website, the Christian find words of encouragement and be spurred on to service for our Lord, and that seekers of the truth find Salvation in the timeless truths of God's Word for these troubled times.

Differences Between the Doctor and the Pastor

Differences Between the Doctor and the Pastor
The author(s) of this work is unclear, but I have found the following individuals:
Pastor Melvin Flosser or Missionary Linton M. Smith Jr. or Bro. Alan Moravek

The Doctor charges outrageous fees and you complain, but you come back the next time you are sick.
The Pastor preaches that you should pay your tithes and you leave the church.

The Doctor checks how much you weigh and you allow him.
The Pastor asks how much you pray and it's none of his business.

The Doctor says, "Please disrobe" and you do it without question.
The Pastor preaches that you should dress modestly and he is getting too personal.

The Doctor gives you a nasty tasting pill and you take it.
The Pastor feeds you the Word and you say, "No thank you."

The Doctor's office closes at a certain time.
The Pastor is to be available, awake, and ready twenty-four hours a day.

The Doctor tells you to change your lifestyle to lower your blood pressure.
The Pastor tells you how to change your lifestyle and it raises your blood pressure.

The Doctor tells you, "We need to run more tests." — so you make an appointment.
The Pastor says, "We need more Prayer Meetings and Bible Studies and you are too busy.

The Doctor says, "There is nothing more we can do," and you search high and low for one who can help.
The Pastor says, "God can help you," and you give up and say, "What's the use!"

The Doctor says, "Try this and see if it works and if it doesn't we'll try something else," so you do.
The Pastor gives you the Promises of God's Word and you don't like to "Walk by faith."

To the Doctor you are just another customer.
To the Pastor, you are a part of the family. He loves you. He prays for you. He helps carry your burdens. He laughs with you and cries with you.
