Sin of Lying

A priest told his congregation, "Next week I plan to speak about the sin of lying. To help you understand better, I want you to read Mark 17."
The following Sunday the priest asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17.
Every hand went up. The priest smiled and said, "Mark has only 16 chapters. And now I will speak about the sin of lying."


Before performing a baptism, the priest came to the young father and said, "Baptism is a serious step.  Are you prepared for it?"
"I think so," the man replied.  "My wife has prepared plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests."

"Oh, sure," came the reply.  "I've got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey."
