True Lies (9 of 9)
Pastor Jeff Schreve
A man was driving down the road. He saw a sign out, in front of someone's house, and it said, "Talking dog for sale." Guy thought, Wow, that, that's kind of cool talking dog for sale. So it just caught his attention and his curiosity. He pulled into that person's driveway. He got out of the car. He got to the front door. He knocked on the door. And he, a man answered the door, and he said, "You've got a talking dog for sale?" He said, "Sure do. He's out back."
