A cafe owner, famous for his soup, was told by his accountant that he could boost his profit significantly if he would add just 5 percent more water to the recipe. The accountant was right. The water was added and no one noticed. Months later, the cafe added 5 percent more water and still no one noticed. Later, more water was added. And then a little more, but never more than 5 percent because they had now "proven" that customers cannot detect just 5 percent more added water.
As you suspected, the cafe owner didn't lose his customers incrementally, but all at once."The soup here just isn't as good as it used to be."
Tired of the same old watered-down sermons?
“You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take anything from it”
(Deuteronomy 4:2, also Deuteronomy 12:32, Rev 22 18-19)
Someone messed with the recipe! The teachers learned it wrong and now teach it wrong! That's why we get what we got!
'Throw that old stuff out! The Creator did away with that.', says the Teacher who was taught wrong!
