A Nation Built on Faith

So, when does God season open?

As you can see by the headline below the caption, though, this 4 a.m. service is about something else. One hunter declares that he "will mix sacrifice with relaxing sport. He will donate whatever he kills to families needing food."
"I know there are no cynics in this room," said the Rev. Martin Wright, senior pastor. "You wouldn't come here at this hour if you weren't serious about your faith." ...

"You don't want to miss church," Toborg [one of the hunters] said. "But you don't want to miss these valuable hunting days, either. This allows us to start the day off the right way."
Well, why not? The church bulletin quoted Habakkuk 3:19: "The sovereign Lord is my strength. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer." As I've said before, Christianity is built on quoting the Bible out of context.
