The greatest evil is the lack of love and charity, the terrible indifference.”

One Sunday, a minister began his sermon: “I’d like to make three points today. First, there are millions of people around the world who are going to hell. Second, most of us sitting here today do not give a damn about it.” After a lengthy pause he continued: “My third point is that you are more concerned that I, your pastor, said the word ‘damn’ than you are about the millions of people going to hell.” Having undivided attention, he proceeded to preach an excellent sermon on putting faith into action.
