In a small town in America, a person decided to open up his Bar
Business, which was right opposite to a Church. The Church & its
Congregation started a campaign to block the Bar from opening with
Petitions and prayed daily against his business.

Work progressed. However, when it was almost complete and was about To
Open a few days later, a strong lightning struck the Bar and it was
Burnt to the ground. The Church folk were rather smug in their outlook
After that, till The Bar owner sued the Church authorities for
$2million on the grounds that the Church through its congregation &
Prayers was ultimately responsible For the demise of his bar shop,
Either through direct or indirect Actions or means.

In its reply to the court, the Church vehemently denied all
Responsibility or any connection that their prayers were reasons to
The bar shop's demise. In support of their claim they referred to the
Benson study at Harvard that intercessionary prayer had no impact!

As The case made its way into court, the Judge looked over the
paperwork At the hearing and commented:
'I don't know how I am going to decide this case, but it appears from
the paperwork, we have a bar owner who believes in the power of Prayer
And we have an entire Church and its devotees that doesn't.'

You decide as to who is right !!

If ignorance is bliss,why do we seek knowledge?
