    How old is your Church?
    If you are a Lutheran,
    Martin Luther ex-monk of the Catholic Church founded your religion, in the year 1517.

    If you belong to the Church of England,
    King Henry VIII founded your religion in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry.

    If you are a Protestant Episcopalian,
    your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Seabury in the American colonies in the 17th century.

    If you are a Congregationalist,
    your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.

    If you are a Methodist,
    your religion was launched by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1744.

    If you are Unitarian,
    Theophilus Lindley founded your church in London in 1774.

    If you are Mormon (Latter Day Saints),
    Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, N.Y. in 1829.

    If you are a Baptist,
    you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched in Amsterdam in 1606.

    If you are the Dutch Reformed Church,
    you recognize Michaelis Jones as founder, because he originated your religion in N.Y. in 1628.

    If you worship with the Salvation Army,
    your sect began with William Booth in London in 1865.

    If you are Christian Scientist,
    you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born and to Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy as its founder.

    If you belong to one of the religious organizations known as "Church of the Nazarene", "Pentecostal Gospel", "Jehovah’s Witness",
    your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past fifty years.

    If you are a Roman Catholic,
    you know that Jesus Christ the Son of God founded your religion in the year 33, and that it has not changed since that time.

    Even today, the above-enumerated facts are still undeniable.

    And if you are Jewish, you can date your religion back to 2000 BCE. :rolleyes:
