Ever listen to a sermon....

...and you're sure the pastor/priest is talking about you!
ABC News' Eloise Harper Reports: When things couldn't be looking worse for Sen. Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency in 2008, as her rival Barack Obama closes in on gaining enough delegates to secure the nomination, the former first lady attended a church service in Bowling Green, Ky., Sunday featuring a sermon about lust and adultery.

The hour-long sermon focused on the sin of committing adultery -– as outlined in Mathew 5:27-32.
Long ago I went to a friend's church, mainstream Lutheran, and the pastor preached David & Bathsheba. Later. my friend told me that some in the congregation were none too pleased with the subject material. The guy kept it clean; he wasn't humping the pulpit like Jeremiah "Ridin' Dirty" Wright. My theory was that some of these good Christian folks were doing or thinking about doing something and their guy was hitting a little too close to home.
Your guy shouldn't be telling you what you want to hear. He is supposed to be telling you what you need to hear. And some days you may not like to hear it.
My pastor would never preach an whole hour. He knows my attention span.
