Faith & Worship

  • Does science threaten the Bible?
  • Can something happen by chance?

    I am not sure where I found these, but I was entertained. Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited, until you try to sit in their pews. Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors. When you get to your wit’s end, you’ll find God lives there. People are funny; they want the front of the bus, the middle of the road, and the back of the church. Quit griping about your church; if it was perfect, you couldn’t belong. If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has. Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous.

  • Do you act ‘holier than thou’?

    During one of his political campaigns, a delegation called on Theodore Roosevelt at his home in Oyster Bay, Long Island. The President met them with his coat off and his sleeves rolled up. “Ah, gentlemen,” he said, “come down to the barn and we will talk while I do some work.” At the barn, Roosevelt picked up a pitchfork and looked around for the hay. Then he called out, “John, where’s all the hay?”

  • Do you struggle with acquired situational narcissism?

    Celebrities tend to misbehave in tiresome and predictable ways, like tantrums, affairs and addictions, and we tend to think they’re spoiled. But one psychiatrist, Cornell’s Robert B. Millman, says they’re not spoiled, they’re sick. The affliction is Acquired Situational Narcissism.

  • Why do people hate Christians?

    “Christianity is not a religion it is a dangerous mind-control program that encourages genocide.” “Christianity was made to brainwash. This is how people got power and money while others believed that all this was because they ‘served God.’ ”

    “Then my father went on to tell me that I am going to pay, and how he is going to make my life a living hell, and started threatening me with a reversed mortgage when he dies.”

  • A call for Biblical repentance

    A man sent a check to the government for back taxes with a note attached that said, “I felt so guilty for cheating on my taxes I had to send you this check. If I don’t feel any better, I’ll send you the rest.”

  • Tips on how to find your church home

    Arriving early one Sunday a preacher sat down at a local donut shop, opened his Bible and went over his sermon notes. A man at the counter asked, “You a preacher or something?” The preacher replied that he was and the man asked which church. The preacher told him which church and he responded excitedly that he went to that church.

    The preacher said, “I’ve been preaching there for about three months and I’ve never seen you there.”

  • Reasons not to attend a church

    A man called his parents to wish them a happy New Year and his dad answered the phone. He said, “Hi Dad, what’s your New Year’s resolution?” His Dad answered proudly, “To make your mother as happy as I can all year.” When Mom got on the phone he asked her the same question and she answered, “To see that your dad keeps his New Year’s resolution.”
