*I, Bro. Mahlon, make no claims of absolute originality for any of my messages. As the common saying goes, “I milk a lot of cows, but I churn my own butter.” I have listened to countless sermons, lectures, jokes, illustrations/stories over my lifetime. I have read countless books, articles, manuscripts, and have watched countless documentaries, shows, movies, etc. I am not sure any thought I have today is truly my own originality and not directly influenced from something I have read, seen, or heard. I will strive to make specific reference when I know I am quoting verbatim someone/thing directly.
