Clearing the Air

I certainly can't make any "official" statements, but I do want to address an isssue before this things turns into a three ring circus.  Two rings seems to be our limit.

I am not, nor have I ever been, on steroids or any other performance enhancing drugs. (we're not counting caffeine, pop tarts or crack as performance enhancing) 

I can also say that I know of no one else on our staff that has knowingly used steroids in my presence or otherwise.  There was some talk during the first ten years of the church growth that this must somehow be the result of the "juice" the "clear" or the "allowing people to wear jeans to church".  We may never know.  There was no reliable test done in those days.

Over the next ten years there were some small growth spurts and some shrinkage, but we lay most of that at the feet of big oil.

We've largely leveled off for the past few years and we think that that is decent evidence that we are in no way associated with Balco or any other agency that's recently undergone the scrutiny of this fine nation.

I'll now take any questions you have.


  1. I'm waiting to face you in a ping pong match, and now I know you'll be clean because you wouldn't lie to Congress. Fuller used the juice to beat me in ping pong. I'm still waiting on my rematch from him. Maybe it should be a tournament?

  2. As long as there is a large cash prize involved, I'm in.
