Today I heard another “Faith Promoting Story” about wearing garments, remarkably similar to the one I recounted a while back. You remember, where the soldier in the foxhole got blown up but his garments–and the body parts covered by them–were saved.
This one was about sharks.
Apparently, a Mormon had fallen into the ocean off the side of a fishing boat. He was attacked by sharks before he could be pulled in, and the only parts left uneaten were those covered by his temple garments.
So the guy lost both arms, both legs, and his head but the garments protected his torso.
I will never understand how that could possibly promote faith….
Those things should carry a warning label.
