Baptist Bat Control

Three pastors were having lunch together and the Presbyterian said "You know, ever since summer started, I've been having trouble with bats in my loft and attic at church. I've tried everything--noise, spray, cats--nothing seems to scare them away!"

The Lutheran said "Yeah, me too. I've got hundreds living in my belfry and in the attic. I've even had the place fumigated, and they won't go away!"

The Baptist said, "I baptized all mine and made them members of the church... Haven't seen one back since!"


How Many Church Members Does It Take to Change a Light Bulb?

Charismatic: Only 1 - Hands are already in the air.

Pentecostal: 10 - One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

Presbyterians: None - Lights will go on and off at predetermined times.

Baptists: At least 15 - One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken.

Episcopalians: 3 - One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks, and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Methodists: Undetermined - Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

Nazarene: 6 - One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.

Lutherans: None - Lutherans don't believe in change.

Neo-evangelical: No one knows. They cannot tell the difference between light and darkness.

TV evangelists: One - But for the message of light to continue, send in your donation.

Fundamentalists: ONLY ONE - because any more would be compromise and ecumenical.

Arminians: One - but first the bulb must want to be changed.

Hyper-Calvinists: None - if God wants to change that light-bulb, He'll do it without your help!

Open Theists: unknown - as even God was not aware that the light bulb had burned out, nuch less that it needed changing.

Seventh Day Adventists: Just one - as long as it isn't Saturday.

Amish: What’s a light bulb?
