You Think You're Funny, But You Are
I love reddit-it's the melting pot of peoples who want the world to laugh, cry, sing or shout with them-and it's a lovely mess.
A post of a cat with a Batman logo mustache may be followed by a rambling confession of
an addiction (allegedly) overcome, or a wedding picture with Satan officiating. It is chaos, voted up and down the page, and the source of the comedic cat scratch at the top of this page about "Grammar Christians".
Here's one of the things that divides the Real God and His crowd and the rest of the world: We can take a joke. If it's funny, even if I am the butt, I can laugh.
Muslims aren't the only thin-skinned religious types, though they do rank (boy, ARE THEY!) high on most lists for not having a sense of humor about their religion. Hindus will kill you dead, too, for daring to blah blah blah their blah blah blah.
Why are the adherents of fake religions so humorless compared to Christians?
Insecurity. Christians are secure in their knowledge of God, of their relationship with God.
We don't kill others to force them to accept Christ-that's the kind of crazy that Catholics have instituted throughout the world.
Hmmmm...were the Emperor Constantine and Mohammed ever seen in the same room at the same time?
A lot of the troubles we see today burst forth in the approximate Anno Domini 300.
Bye the bye, I am NOT welcoming attempts to test the boundaries of my sense of humor regarding God-please don't comment the most vicious, evil rotten blasphemes that you can think of to see if I still can laugh.
I honor God here, and I know that the temptation to mock the True God can be overwhelming (reddit isn't the only place I peruse on the internets, or visit in my offline life).
If you do feel the need to dis-honor the Honorable, check yourself and ask why.
If you DO think of a corker, a good 'un, a funny 'joke' about God...run it by a Muslim first, as in,
"Allah walks into a bar and sees Mohammed doing flaming shots..."
See how hard he laughs before posting it here.
