Church Split.

In church today, a pastor told a story about a castaway.

After being marooned on a deserted island, the gentleman was rescued.

His rescuers found him alone but with three tents on the isle.

"What's the first tent for?", they asked the castaway.

He replied: "It was my house--I slept there."

They then asked, "What's the second tent for?"

He answered, "It's God's house--I worshipped there."

They finally asked, "What's the third tent for?"

"It was my former church."

A church split on an island of one.
