Poking my head back in . . . is this blog still here?
Missed the old place . . .
But I wanted to announce the adding to the blogroll of a fantastic site called Stuff Christians Like. It’s hilarious.
If you ever want to really insult a Christian, say the following:
“I don’t think you’re relevant.”
That is our kryptonite. The idea of irrelevance keeps us up at night. Seriously, if someone doesn’t find us to be relevant than we’re probably going to need to fire the worship leader or at the bare minimum get him a pair of white Pumas. Irrelevance is simply unacceptable.
The weird thing though is that in some ways, Jesus was the perfect example of what it means to be “irrelevant.” Think about it. His message was the exact opposite of what was going on in the world. People were expecting a strong, powerful, forceful savior and instead got a baby. The powers that be were drunk on the law and he preached against their hypocrisy. He shunned the people that were relevant and hung out with the irrelevant, the tax collectors, hookers and sinners. Now granted you could argue that to a world hungry for truth, the truth of Christ was very relevant, but I’m just saying it’s an interesting thought exercise.
Heh. More to sample:
They are all funny, and many will smack you in the face with the truth while you’re laughing.
