Go where the Lord sends you because the lord is the one calling you, the lord will come after you, and because the lord’s purpose will prevail


Jonah 1:1-16

This is a naval urban legend popularized by former Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell in a 2008 speech and debunked by the U.S. Navy. The story as an illustration for the situation in Jonah 1:1-16 was first used, to my knowledge, by H.B. Charles Jr.
