    Say hello to Jeevan here.

    The Pastor

    A pastor is finishing up his sermon. 

    "In preparation for my sermon next week, I want you all to read Mark chapter 17, please. Thank you." So next week everybody comes back to church. After singing a few hymns, the pastor comes to the pulpit.

    "How many read Mark chapter 17 like I said last week?" Everyone raised their hand. The pastor says "And is it not a powerful and glorious chapter--amen?!" In response, shouts of "Amen!" bounced back loudly from the congregation.

    Then the pastor smirked.

    "Well, Mark only has 16 chapters. I will now begin my sermon on the nature of lying and why even good people resort to it."

    Moral of the Story: The only way to not be tricked in any test is to be honest.
