Dear God…

May 10th, 2009


I was in one of your churches today attending a first communion.

There were several seats empty near me and an old man, who clearly was having trouble both walking and standing, passed from bench to bench, asking to be allowed to sit. In each case, he was told that the seats were being held for family (family who had chosen to be late, incidentally). Seeing as none of your flock was willing to give him an empty seat, I am sure it will not surprise you that none of them was willing to offer him their own seat.

So how come the agnostic offered to give up his seat when none of the Christians would?

Oh, wait. You work in mysterious ways, according to your followers (when their words and actions make no sense).

    My all-time favourite bumper sticker – “Don’t keep telling me you’re a christian. Let me see if I can work it out for myself.”

    Apparently I’m a Christian.

    And in addition to that story, an elderly security guard in Atlanta last year remarked: “I can see that you are a God-fearing man”. The basis for his conclusion? I was courteous and friendly to him whenever I passed his desk.
    I was so courteous, I chose not to point out that I fear no gods!!! *shakes fist fearlessly towards the skies*

    Actually the mystery is how “believers” can re-interpret simple messages to suit their own needs.
    Rather like politicians and football fans!
