Another "Nagelism" I have heard: When the Old Testament strikes a leak, the water will soon flow into the New Testament.

You know Nagel is Australian, William?

I understand he's in a St Louis nursing home now. A long way from home. The Lord bless him and keep him...

Well, you claim him, but he was born in China!

Pr Mark Henderson said...

Touche, William! (accent on the e not available); but, yes, we'll claim him.

Plus he has an Australian accent, not a Chinese one ;0).
Case rests.
