This is too good a story not to be shared with all my friends.
I wish that we could have this kind of pastors in all our religions.
Please read all about it here.
Good for him!

Indeed, Ramana: What a MAN! I love him for that stunt alone.
Did a similar experiment – on a different level but in principle the same – not that long ago. Blew my mind. Opened my eyes even wider than they usually are.

I learnt a new phrase last week from a very intelligent young lady – “dumb down”. Since she has to move around in feminine circles full of housewives full of baby and kitchen talk, she has to dumb down to have any friends at all. I was quite intrigued at this phenomenon but could see what she was trying to do and the phrase explained it so well!
Great story, something to think about. Do I also judge people on appearances? Hope not but nobody put a mirror in front of me the way the pastor did for his congregation.
An occasional shock treatment like that wakes us up does it not?
That sort of experiment is very revealing of the real attitudes of supposedly charitable and compassionate people. That kind of hypocrisy is why I turned away from organised religion when I was very young. The boys at my school who posed as fervently religious were the same boys who bullied me relentlessly for four years.

Quite right about various kinds of hypocrisy. Such demonstrations to make them aware should at least theoretically, work to bring about change.
