Sarcasm and the revelation of biblical truth

When you discover something new about God, its exciting and challenging and you want to share it, right?  Well, this is how you do it for sure…

1. Counteract opposing theologians by publicly and mercilessly tearing apart their logic.  That’ll teach them a lesson in humility.

2. Use all sorts of technical language to make people feel small – then they’ll really want to be like you.

3. People sometimes don’t get the chance to think about theology and the Bible as much as you, so mock the ideas they’ve grown up with – that’s definately the way to convince them.

4. Don’t worry about love – sarcasm is undoubtably the best way to show people they’re wrong.

A lazy repost (because my friend did it too)

Was just thinking about this little poem today.  I posted it a few years ago, but here it is again for your reading pleasure…

 

Life is big,

And I don’t get it.

And I’m kind of tired of not getting it.

That’s a little sentence, but really its big.

Very big.

A bit like life.

 

Its got to be some sort of haiku or some kind of named form?  Don’t know, but it just came out this way and I kind of like that it encapsulates the simplicity with which we have to face our inability to know and control everything.  It names the fatigue that comes from trying, but recognises that that’s okay.

“Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest” ~ Jesus

Who’s in charge here?

You’ll not be surprised that this small corner should link to a blogpost like this about submission in marriage…
