Oh Come Some of Ye Faithful.

An area church is advertising on a local radio station. The opening is a deep bass voice singing "Oh come some of ye faithful" to the tune of Oh Come All of Ye Faithful. They then go onto say how they welcome everyone.

Which church doesn't? Oh, perhaps they want to say they don't believe in sin? They don't believe in the need for repentance? Usually that is what that sort of attitude engenders, the disbelief in sin.

The priest in the confessional can say your sins are absolved but unless you are earnestly working on stopping sinful practice your sins are not forgiven.

Of course many of these new age denominations have a whatever floats your boat attitude.
