The Protestant and his Three Huts

The Protestant’s Three Huts


A Protestant was stranded all alone on an island. He begins sending smoke signals, hoping that somebody will find him.

Ten years pass, and a boat is sailing by. The captain notices the smoke signals, and decides to pull into the island. When he docks, he sees three huts.

The Protestant runs out and embraces the captain, and says, “Thank you for rescuing me!” The captain says, “No problem, where are the others?”

The man says, “There is only me, I am all alone on this island.” The captain, confused, asks, “If you are all alone, then why are there three huts?”

The man says, “Well, the first hut is where I live, that’s my home. The second hut is my church, where I worship.”

The captain asks, “And what is the third hut?” The man says, “Oh, that’s the church where I used to go to.”

hahaha That is so True. I have a friend she Goes to Bible study at an evening Baptist Church, used to attend Associated reformed Presbyterian while On Sundays attending a Non Denominational Super church in Charlotte.

My sister who lives in Ca. was just telling me recently that she is “hunting” for a new church. Her pastor is a nice guy but seems too much like a hippie, and she is shopping for a more conservative church now. When I brought up checking out the Catholic church, she jumped all over me for trying to shove the Catholic Church down her throat. I am just praying now that the Holy Spirit will lead her to the Truth!

I can’t imagine that this will attract anyone except the self-righteous.

STEVE RAY HERE: As a former Protestant I can attest to it’s sad but real truth. Not meant to attract or detract, just a bit of humor. People need to lighten up and smile at themselves sometimes. Humor is a good thing, even a bit of self-deprecating satire.

Amen, my friend! Yes, as former Protestants, we know know this is true and as you said, we have to laugh at ourselves. My husband, Steve, and I were talking this morning about Protestants “church shopping”. Although I hate that phrase and the fact that they do that, especially since they “church shop” usually for a new pastor who gives more inspiring sermons or for a church that offers more social activities. It saddens me that their focus is on those things but I have to remind myself that most of them don’t realize or believe that the True Presence of Christ resides in Catholic Churches so they aren’t even seeking Him – just good social activities or a pastor who is a good homilist. I also have to remind myself that I was once ignorant of the Truth as well and pray that they will find their way “HOME” just as we did, Thanks be to God! And by the way, I love humor and appreciate your stories! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Janet and family!

STEVE RAY HERE: Thanks Gail! We miss you.
