The Lighter Side of Scripture



Last Sunday, it was kind of fun to bring out the humor that's embedded in Scripture.  Many readers of the Bible don't expect the kind of biting humor that comes through every once in a while in the narrative.  But that's exactly what we found with Elijah's sarcastic response to the prophets of Baal and their lack of success in calling down fire from heaven to consume the sacrifice.  "Hey, call a little louder, maybe Baal is deaf or heard of hearing?  Maybe he's asleep?  Perhaps he's indisposed at the moment?"  Oh, that's rich!

Well, I was looking for a laugh last night, and I happened upon The Wittenburg Door -- a slightly irreverent publication (at times), but often keen on exposing Christian blindsides -- and found this mock piece on what Noah's blog might look like, if there had been such networking tools back in the day.  It was much longer, and I include only a snippet here.  (Click on the image if you can't it.  That will give you a bigger image to read from!)

Makes you wonder what was going on in the minds of Noah and his family during that long, uncertain voyage!  No smart phones, no PCs, no texting, Facebooking, Tweeting, and no TV... Oh my!  What did they do?
