(Dateline: OC.net Palace/Brewpub/Bowling Alley)  The Admins walk out to the balcony.  They pronounce the following:

"Our post-of-the-month winner for December 2010 is Jnorm888 for the following gem:

Sorry i should have put a source, I thought it was an interesting article.

The Orthodoxy Way is not to speculate. It's to experience. You don't know something by siting around and thinking about it. You know something by experiencing it.

Alot of Christians over the centuries lived and died by the Sermon on the mount. In fact, I wouldn't be allowed to vote if it wasn't for the influence of the sermon on the mount. The nation of India wouldn't be free from Colonialism if it wasn't for the Sermon on the Mount!

South Africa would of never of been able to move forward after apartheid if it wasn't for the Sermon on the Mount.

The Amish who lost their children some years ago from that shooting would of never of been able to forgive the one who killed their kids if it wasn't for the sermon on the mount.

The Sermon on the Mount breaks the chains, it stops the cycle of retaliation. The sermon on the mount helps mankind know reconciliation.

And so there are alot of things to be grateful and thankful for when it comes to the issue of the sermon on the mount!

The Sermon on the Mount is a blessing my friend! But with atheists you can't win! They will be critical if we were warlords like Islam, and they will be critical if we turned the other cheek. It's a catch 22. And it always will be with them.

Then they hear the familiar response of the crowd, AXIOS!  AXIOS!  AXIOS

They then realize that they had stepped out on the wrong balcony; thankfully, the people standing outside the correct balcony had seen the entire presentation, which had been broadcast via big-screen from the security camera feed.

Axios!  No better sermon than the sermon of the mount!

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
