A Pastor tells his congregation to say “F.U.” to others in his sermon. Ohio Pastor R.A. Vernon added an explicitive twist to his sermon on ‘forgiveness’.

This story is being told like this from

An Ohio pastor has raised eyebrows for instructing his congregation to tell one another, ‘F.U.’, at a recent Sunday service.

Dr. R.A. Vernon, senior pastor of The Word Church in Ohio conjured an alternative way to preach his sermon on ‘forgiveness’ by turning his theme of ‘forgive you” into an acronym synonymous with an expletive phrase.

“Do me a favor, touch your neighbor and say ‘F.U.’,” Vernon says to his service members. “Not just your neighbor, look down your whole row and say ‘F’ y’all too!'”

In the sermon, which was captured on tape, he continues on saying,

“Do me a favor, take your phone out, text all of your exes and say ‘I’m at church, F.U.’ ‘Pastor, my mama don’t like you,’ ‘Well F your mama!’ ‘My family don’t like you!’ Well F your family too!’ ”

His attempt at pulpit humor has gained hoards of attention as the video of the sermon has circulated around the internet.

If his attempt was to wake folks up and get their attention during his sermons?…Congratulations!! Now everyone is paying attention…But is that the attention he really wanna bring to his church?
