Jesus Devoured Our Sins

In order to demonstrate how Jesus “devoured” our sins, Joe Aguillard, president of  Louisiana College, a Baptist-affiliated institution, “devoured” a live earthworm during a recent chapel service on campus.

The content of this video is a real bad example of Biblical exegesis, but one has to watch the video in order to learn that some preachers will go a long away to make a point that could easily be made without all the theatrics.

  1. Hey Doc,

  2. well i’m all for memorable sermon illustrations, but to do that half way through your appeal means no one is thinking about Christ but only “that guy just ate a worm!”
