A man walking along a path one day stumbles and falls into a pit. A Christian Scientist along his journey walks by, sees the man in the pit and says, “You only think you’re in a pit,” and continues on his way. A Pharisee soon walks by, discovers the man the pit and says, “Only bad people fall into pits,” and without a thought continues on. A Fundamentalist Christian comes along, peers at the poor man in the pit and says, “You deserve your pit.” A Pentecostal comes by and says, “Just confess you’re not in the pit.” Then, of course, a Methodist comes by and says, “Here, we brought you some food and clothes while you’re in the pit. Now I must be on my way for there are other pits to find.” A Baptist happens by, looks at the man in the pit and says, “This is no accident, you know?” As always, an optimistic type, notices the guy in the pit, smiles and says, “Things could be worse, don’t you know?” The eternal pessimist comes along and says, “Things will get worse, you know?” Finally, Jesus comes along, sees the guy in the pit, and says, “Let’s get you out of that pit.” Then he reaches down, takes the man by the hand, and lifts him out of the pit.
