An evangelist came to a huge church for revival.
When he saw the huge building he said, to the preacher,
"Big church here brother, how many saved members you got?"
The preacher sighed and said, "about half"
"Why do so many people think that the Bible is only inspired at certain points -  and that  THEY are inspired to pick out which points?"

When I was in mainstream, I heard that figure used - that their internal surveys showed about half of those on their church rolls had not as yet experienced the spiritual rebirth, i.e., believed on Christ as their Savior/been given faith to believe.

Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23
