  • Jesus: the ultimate script flipper

    It was a warm summer night in a town near Washington, D.C.

    A group of friends sat around a backyard table eating dinner when a young man with a gun appeared and interrupted the dinner party, according to a 2016 NPR story.

    “Give me your money or I’m going to start shooting,” he said, pointing the gun at one of the women.

    The people believed him; however, no one had any money on them.

    So, they started talking to the man, first trying to play on his guilt: “What would your mother think about you doing this?”

  • A religion and a relationship

    If you are in a Christian circle you probably heard this phrase: “Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship”, and the syllogism that accompanied this saying: “religion is a man’s attempt to reach God, Christianity is God’s attempt to reach man; Therefore, Christianity is not a religion.” This became so familiar to us that we adopt it without thinking this saying has many inherent problems. I believe this type of reasoning is invalid for three reasons for being in contradiction:

  • More like Judas than Jesus

    We cannot escape the shadow of Judas at the Lord’s Table.

  • When God says, ‘I told you so’

    One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”

    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.

    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.

    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”
