Comments: Are You Too Busy For God?

I remember seeing a sign at a church more than twenty years ago:

The truth only hurts, if it should.

Twenty-one years, actually, and I still remember it.

I do see some good ones, and in all fairness, I guess I should post those as well!

For whatever reason this one shocked my laid back (yet way too busy) self.

All these years I have been satan's pawn; who knew?

I would go to church Sunday wearing a t-shirt that said, "I was Busy doing God's work", but that's me.

Awright...I confess...I am WAY confused, Key. How the heck does that message jive with the "Idle hands are the devil's work" proverb? Maybe next week's message will be "Damned if you do, damned if you don't!"

A church here locally was once shocked by a flash of fire and the smell of brimstone and sulphur. Everyone ran screaming in terror except for one elderly man.

Satan, in due outrage, confronted the white haired scion of the south and said, "Don't you know who I am?"

"'Course I do," was the reply.

"Ain't you skeered of me?" Satan asked incredulously.

"No, I ain't," rejoined the eld gent, "I been married to your sister for forty-three years!."

My favorite post outside a Catholic Church "Under same management for 2000 years"

A couple of signs I have seen:

"Extreme exposure to the Son prevents burning"


"The christian see's more on his knees than the philosopher see's on his tippy toes".

So, what do You usually see when you are on your knees?

Heh. Honestly, Werb, I have no idea where you're going with that...

One of the local bible-thumping congregations has a marquee in front of the church that changes regularly. They went through a regular spurt of malpropisms recently...

Started with:

"The best mornings start on your knees." (Hell yes, but somehow I think that what I envisioned wasn't exactly what they were hoping to inspire).

This was followed, within a few days, but:

"A tongue in a wet place slippeth" (bwaahahahahahahahahahahahahahah)

I doubt I'll ever forget them.

On the other hand, it strikes me that I might like that church.
