Re: Predictions For 2010

My prediction?

This will be the year that the machine rise up from the ashes of the nuclear fire and claim their rightful place in our world.

I'm assuming the bolded is sarcasm? Nobody on AFF likes my spirit!!

I was raised hearing racial jokes and being in an all-white town, thought nothing of it. But then, I listened to "I Have A Dream" and memorized most of it. Then I read, "Black Like Me" by John Howard Griffin and that turned me upside down. Then I was introduced to the world of disease and disability. Then I became radically "seeker-sensitive" and realized I cared much more about the feelings of those far from God than I cared about the feelings of dried up church people practicing self-indulgent religion.

So that makes me sensitive about everything!

Funny thing is, I now disturb and offend more people than ever.......but I don't care! People who think it's acceptable to laugh at a mentally disabled child or joke about a naked 70-year-old female politician need to be disturbed. I've made a lot of people very angry. I say, "Mission Accomplished." Jesus came to bring comfort to the disturbed and to disturb the comfortable.

Two notable things from Luke 15 (lost sheep, lost coin, lost son). The first verse says that tax collectors and notorious sinners often came to hear Jesus speak. This made the religious people angry.

So two significant measures of being Christ-like are; 1) Who is in our audience? The "usual suspects" (religious people listening to yet another sermon about how God can solve all our problems) or the disenfranchised and notorious sinners? If our audiences are not made up by the latter, we're not Christ-like. 2) Do we have the admiration of the religious community? Jesus didn't.


Will the musicians please come as we bow our heads in prayer? No one looking around. If you'd like to stop telling coarse jokes as Ephesians says we should, and if you'd like to care more about the people who are not yet there, than those who already are, please come to the front.
NotofWorks....NotofWorks! I'm sorry... Really,. I am! I promise I'll walk softly in the future! lol

PLEASE... PLEASE NotofWorks!!! I didn't mean to get you so "annointed" so fast. You really ought to consider the following joke and see if it will work for you. Look's like you could learn from it. lol (will lol cover a multitude of sins?)


The country preacher went to his pulpit one Sunday morning and only one old gentleman sat on the front row. No one else was there.

The preacher said to the old gentleman, "I guess we might as well go on back home, been as it's just me and you here."

The old gentleman responded, "Rev. I don't know anything about preaching. I'm just an old farmer. But I do promise you this, if I went out to feed the cows and just one old cow came up I'd go ahead and feed her."

The Pastor said, "Well if that's the way you feel about it, okay," and he opened his Bible and began to preach. An hour and a half later he finished. Where upon he asked the old gentleman, "Well, what'd think of that?"

The old farmer slowly responded. "Well, Rev, just like I said, I don't know anything about preaching. I'm just an old farmer. But I do promise you this, if I went out to feed the cows and just one old cow came up I sure wouldn't give her the whole wagon load!"

Happy New Year NotofWorks. Look forward to a great year "learning from you!"

BeenThinkin is through.
