Sometimes you just have to laugh! LOL!
I know the world around us is no reason to laugh right now, but someone has to be cheerful or how will anyone see the light?
Our Pastor spoke this past weekend of how funny God must be. I agree with him.
The Bible is full of far-fetched and at times preposterous stories!
What right minded, stable adult would believe God actually parted the Red Sea?
What Ivy League Professor would be able to accept this guy who ran from God ended up in a huge fish?
And how about Daniel? Thrown in the Lion’s Den and they weren’t hungry?
Growing up I never thought twice about “not” believing any of the Bible. It was what it is.
I never questioned the validity of Adam and Eve living in a perfect garden until Eve talked to a slithery snake or David knocking out a giant with a slingshot.
However, as an adult now I can see why some people might question the accounts of Paul and Silas chained to a dungeon wall praising God in the middle of the night as a fairytale, legend or narrative.
Imagine waking up one morning thinking, “I’ll join the Peace Corp; go to China and teach Farsi.
Or write on your to-do list for your spouse,
“Honey, I am going to California to pan for gold. Be back soon!”
Your other half may be glad you find gold but think “have you lost your mind?”
So it is with God’s great imagination and unlimited eye-catching scenes. Many have found his ingenious resourcefulness to be improbable.
Revelation 1: 5 “and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.”
Whose idea was it to create a perfect world?
Or part the Red Sea?
How did Jonah get into that whale and survive 3 days? (Just the thought of what he might have been sitting in is revolting)
Not only are these tales true, they are miraculous, bizarre, extraordinary and clever!
The Bible is one big story with one Big God as the writer and administrator.
If God is the author of such awesome exploits, would that imply he has a wit about him? A side of slapstick satire? A source of comicality or sparkle?
So here we are in a world of disarray, nations falling apart with people who have no clue, where is God?
What is he up to?
Parting the Nile?
