It was the new pastor's first Sunday at the church. While greeting people as they left the service most were very complimentary of his sermon. But then one man walked up to the new pastor and said, "That was a very dull and boring sermon, Pastor."
The pastor continued to greet worshipers but a minute later the same man appeared in line. He said, "Pastor, I don't think you did any preparation for your message."
A minute or so later the man walked up to the pastor and told him, "Pastor, you really blew it. You didn't have a thing to say."
Finally, the pastor could stand it no longer. He called over one of the elders of the church and asked about this very critical man.
The elder replied, "Oh, don't let that guy bother you. That's not what he really thinks. All he does is go around repeating whatever he hears other people say!"
