You have probably heard this one before.
Four preachers gathered around a campfire. As campfires inevitably do, this one established an atmosphere of intimacy and introspection.
During the conversation, one preacher said, “Our people come to us and pour out their hearts, confess certain sins and needs. Let's do the same. Confession is good for the soul.”
In due time, trust was established and all agreed.
One preacher confessed he liked to go to movies and would sneak off when away from his church.
The second preacher confessed to liking to smoke cigars.
The third preacher confessed to liking to play cards.
When it came to the fourth preacher, he wouldn't confess. The others pressed him saying, “Come now, we confessed our sins. What is your sin?”
Finally, the fourth preacher answered, “It is gossiping, and I can hardly wait to get out of here.”
