Where the world comes to study the Bible

Gospel Horse

Shortly after World War II the so-called gospel horse appeared on the scene, trained to answer theological questions. At youth rallies the horse was led on stage to be asked various questions, and would respond by stomping his hoof once for yes and twice for no. The climax occurred when the horse was asked, “How many persons are there in the Trinity?” and responded with three resounding stomps. Once, he took up so much time there was none left for the speaker! The preliminary overshadowed the main attraction.
