    Madeleine L’Engle (“A Wrinkle in Time”) wrote about how she would sign her checks with famous authors’ names.

    Thank you for telling me her name. It was a favourite book of mine in the mid 1960s when I was 8 or so.
    Apparently she hated the TV adaptation.
    I just looked up the Wikipedia entry and there is hope that there will be a movie soon.
    I hope that they can focus on story more than special effects.

    I suppose it’s perfectly reasonable that this preacher has no idea how to use the old english third-person-present verb form, but just so you all know, you don’t use it in the imperative. “Let him do thus” is correct, “letteth him do thus” is stupidly wrong. I let, thou lettest, he letteth, we let, you let, they let.

    If a preacher were saying it then your comment would be warranted, however the lines are written by a guy named Darrin Bell. I don’t know what his training is in old English.

    Using words wrongly is part of the comedy.

    Mr. Drienborough is correct grammatically. But I think Mr. Bell is hinting at the pretentious of the preacher. His use of biblical, archaic English is, thus, for comical effect. And I must admit Mr. Drienborough, I wonder if thou didst protest a bit much. Give a guy a break.
