As the wealthy oil tycoon lay on his deathbed, his pastor talked of Gods healing power. “Pastor,” he gasped, “if God heals me, Ill give the church a million dollars.” Miraculously, the man revived and within a few short weeks was out of the hospital.

“Did I say that?” the tycoon asked. “I guess that goes to show how sick I really was!”
