They sinfully fail to realize that they themselves are not Christ in person nor in spirit, nor
represent Him, but depriving themselves and other bishops and deacons of desperately needed

Heterosexual Mate Seek/Find/Retain Service #2
Ephesians 5:3 But fornication and all [public-sensual-art and/or masturbational] impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is fitting among saints.
4 Let there be no filthiness, nor silly talk, nor levity, which are not fitting; but instead let there be thanksgiving.
5 Be sure of this, that no fornicator nor [sexually] impure person, or one who is covetous (that is, a porn-producing/lusting-at-porn/self-sodomizing-to-porn idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is because of these things that the wrath of God comes upon the [erotically-deviant] offspring of disobedience.
7 Therefore do not associate with them,
8 because once you were [lewd-conduct] darkness, but now you are [righteously-pure] light in the Lord; walk as children of light
9 because the fruit of light is found in all that is good, correct, and true,
10 and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
11 Take no part in the fruitless works of [immodest] darkness, but instead [appropriately] expose them.
12 because it is a shame even to speak of the things that they do in secret,
13 but when anything is exposed by the light it becomes visible, bcause anything that becomes visible is light [photonically speaking].
14 Therefore it is said, "Awake, sleeper, and get up from the dead, and Christ will give you light."
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise humans but as wise,
16 making the most of the time, because the times are evil.
17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
A SPIFF FOR THOSE WHO KNOW MUSIC HARMONY CHORDS:
Harmonious C, E-flat, and G go to a bar. Bartender says: "Sorry, we dont't serve minors."
So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open 5th between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished,
and G is out flat. F come in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D enters and heads for the
restroom, saying: "Excuse me, I'll only be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this
relative of C is not a minor. He bartender notes B-flat hiding at the end of the bar, and exclaims: "Get out! You're the
seventh minor I have found in this bar tonight." E-flat returns the next night in a three-piece suite with nicely-shined
pedal points below, to which the bartender declares: "You're sure looking sharp tonight!" E-flat does a partita and
becomes a natural. Finally C sobers up and realizes in dismay that he is under a rest, after which he is found guilty of
contributing to the diminuendo of a minor, and sentenced to being enclosed between bars without Coda at an major upscale
holding state known only known as the Fermata.
