Let’s play a fun little game: who wrote/performed the following song? Please don’t Google it, as that would only prove you have the computing skills of my 4-year-old daughter.
Have you ever thought about your soul – can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you’re dead you just stay in your grave
Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?
When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope – do you think he’s a fool?
Well I have seen the truth, yes I’ve seen the light and I’ve changed my ways
And I’ll be prepared when you’re lonely and scared at the end of our days
Could it be you’re afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
that God is the only way to love
Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say they may as well worship the sun?
I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don’t believe?
You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can’t retrieve
Perhaps you’ll think before you say that God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he’s the one
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it’s too late.
First correct answer wins a No-Prize. Continue reading
To all parents who send their kids to AWANA or vacation Bible school ((BTW, can we get a better name for this than Vacation Bible School? Two out of the three words are things kids generally don’t like. This explains why many churches refer to it as VBS, hoping to confuse children)) : you are really going to regret this one day. One day, and the time may be here sooner than you can imagine, the United States is going to declare war on Christianity, thus placing your children in a terrible quandry.
You see, for years churches have been forcing kids to not only pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States, but also to the Christian flag. So now you have two or three generations of children who are honor bound to both religion and country, and in the case of armed conflict they won’t know who to follow. Either way, they are going back on their word, which makes them liars, cowards, and dishonorable. ((We could debate the difference between “oath” and “pledge”, but I think Matthew 5:37 clears the confusion up for us.))
Thank you parents for doing this to your children. You better hope and pray they will never have to reap what you have sown.
There are no other words to describe this other than Freaking Awesome.
Thesis: that former president Martin Van Buren has the best facial hair in American presidential history.
Conclusion: For the love of Chester A. Arthur, someone please bring this back into style.
