ENCINITAS, CA—Local man Jacob Vasquez was overjoyed to publicly give his life to Christ this past Sunday, being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Unfortunately, Vasquez's conversion was overturned by officials after an instant replay revealed he was not fully submerged in the baptismal.
After the man was dunked in the water by star pastor Mike and his associate pastor Bill, he emerged and raised his hands in victory, jumping from the water and spiking his Bible in celebration. But officials quickly threw a yellow flag in the air, indicating they needed to review the play.
They carefully studied the play over several minutes and determined that the man's finger was clearly above the surface of the water, negating the play and nullifying the man's salvation.
"Incomplete submersion by the offense, conversion overturned. 12-month penalty serving in children's ministry," the officials declared as the crowd booed. "Salvation denied."
Once his time has been served working in the 3-4-year-olds' class, he'll be allowed to attempt the play again.
The man has accused the refs of being Presbyterians.
