Sweet Christian Unity

Yes, I know this is incredibly lame, I’m just passing on what was told to me:

 

Did you hear the early Christians used to drive Hondas?

 

 

What? Haven’t you read in Acts 1:14 where they were all in one Accord?

Presbyterian Jedi

 

anakin

 

Personally, I think this explains a lot of why Anakin started down the path of the dark side of covenant theology and paedobaptism.

(Ok, actually this is a screen shot of a Chinese bootleg copy of Episode III where Anakin’s words “I was just appointed by the Jedi Council” were translated into Chinese and then re-translated into English for subtitles and this is what you ended up with)

But then again, it makes about as much sense as some modern Bible translations…

Being a Man is not so tough…

Are You Wired for Makeup or for Beer?

beer marriage

Well, the above image from his web site is probably just one more reason why Douglas Wilson will never be allowed a leadership position in the Southern Baptist Convention (not that he would ever want one, that is).

But I digress; this post is supposed to be about differences in perspective.  I have shown the above image to quite a few committed Christian men (most of whom don’t drink, by the way) and all of them hysterically laugh.

Why is that?  A disdain for makeup?  A fondness for intoxication?

No, of course not, makeup and beer are only comic “placeholders” that represent what is really funny:

  1. Men and women truly have very different “wiring”— the way they see life, what is important, and how to achieve it.
  2. We often don’t realize how different our wiring is in an individual situation even if we acknowledge our differences in a global, generic sort of way.
  3. We have a tendency to re-interpret our spouses’ perspective in the light of our own (“that’s what the beer is for”)
  4. Doing that often lands us in big trouble, sometimes without us even realizing it.

Bottom line for today: YOUR SPOUSE IS NOT YOU!  Now hit the beat, and let’s be careful out there.

I Just Want the Instruction Manual…

Visitation Vexation

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote “Revelation 3:20″ on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, “Genesis 3:10.” Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” Genesis 3:10 reads, “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.”
