 Re:

I just have one question for you Tpique1.

Why couldn't the pony sing?
Because he was a little hoarse.

I'm a corny joker and maybe I joke too much. I come to this site because it sobers me up. I come here with my serious questions and I love the discussions. Did Jesus have a sense of humour? I'm pretty sure. But he knew there was a time and place for everything.

Consider the treasure that might be found in that bitty sandbox!

I didn't get to play in sandboxes as a child. Snakes, ticks, and germs live in there.

 Re:

Why am I so serious?

I must confess something. Calling me the black sheep of my Christian community would be no small understatement. I've caused more trouble for my leaders than almost all the rest of the members combined. This is in no small part due to my tounge, and my lack of discernment.
I've often been vocally judgemental, critical, back-biting, self-seeking, proud, arrogant and hurtful to others in my speech.
In my community of faith, I know not to open my mouth, even if I know what comes out is true, because often it doesn't come out with love, but comes out with the sting of hatred, jealousy or discord.
Online that's different, I can be an intelectual online, I can say things that are broadly judgemental or proud and there is a DISCONNECT. You see, as much as I type, we are not in a relationship that creates truthfulness and openess, there is a wall... and I can wear any mask that I want. Instead of sounding judgemental about a certain topic, I can put on a tone of concern that would not be available in a face to face conversation.
I hadn't commented in the forum for a couple days after posting on Ted Haggard, because I realized that with my own testimony I wasn't anywhere near a place where I could condemn him. Not to say that I am involved in homosexuality, but there is a very real dark place in my heart that I am more than aware of. In fact I found this website in my search for more information about the process of sanctification.
I can only be the judge for myself, but for me, many of my posts have been critical, or serious, when I myself had no right to comment on such things... I have been rebuked of one thing, and that is hypocracy.

I suggest that everyone listen to Zac Poonen's message Basics - Hypocracy, when I searched my heart, I recognized so many places where I had fallen short.

 Re:

Bro, you bring up a really worthwhile issue to talk about.

(Edit: I am interested in reading and learning from the feedback.)

Welcome back Ian.

 Re: We need more humor around here!

Good riddance


I drive in the slow lane, so I’m just catching up to say, “Good-.... “... wait a-minute... I just remember something my dad taught me when I was a kid. He said:

“When there’s something not right, most people say, “They should do something about it… or Somebody should...” But there are the few who say, “There’s something not right here, and I will do something about it!”

I suppose you are long gone, and the dust is settled. But, if you should happen to take a peek here, I’d like to suggest my dad’s philosophy: Be a pioneer of good humor. Jesus himself did that. Have you ever though how silly a log in somebody’s eye would look – … never mind trying to take a dust particle out of someone else’s eye at the same time? I’d love to see a cartoon of that. It would make ideal front-page material on SI.

Humor is not my gift, but a little might rub off on me, if I were to be exposed to it. After all, it's catchy! Care to come back and offer your talent?
