I saw a blogger post a Hipster Christianity quiz on Facebook.  What did I do?

Well, you KNOW I had to go ahead and take the quiz. — Do I qualify?

NO….

What? Thats right folks….It told me I was only moderately hip or something.  Can you believe those freakin guys? They said no….. Oh my…

As I was reading the questions I was tempted to take it again. I think I know now what the right answers would be to qualify me as a hipster, uh. religious dude.  Yeah…Thats me 🙂 Well…. Maybe..

That blog is really  nice over there.  I tried to subscribe but it doesn’t seem to work. I know he’s at the top of Google for his term.  I’m guessing the blog is to promote his book.

Hey man, if you stumble  by this post you should get your feed working.  I’d follow it. But then maybe a hipster is not so much into the “social networking” kinda thing.

Wait? He’s on Facebook too! Continue reading “Hipster Christianity?”

Did Jesus Die on a Cross?

You ever heard the story that Jesus really didn’t die on the cross? I was waiting outside this coffee shop one time and had this conversation:

Hey, how’s it going?
Oh pretty good.. I’m blessed today. (me)
Blessed? You believe in Jesus don’t ya?
Well sure, Uh.. Yeah..
I don’t believe in Jesus.
Hmmm? Uh….
See.. I know what really happened.
You do??

Let me tell ya a story:

Those guys’ back then in Iraq. They were monk’s and stuff. They were good at meditating and could put themselves into a deep trance.  You know what I mean?

They would get so deeply into a trance that it would literally mimic death.

See, that’s what Jesus did.

When he saw the coming horrifing death he came up with this plan. He was a young dude and starting to get famous but he was tired of the limelight.  So when they nailed him up he started meditating…And went into a deep trance.

They thought he was dead.

They took him down off the cross and put him in that rich guy’s tomb. He was all part of the plan you see.

Now, the diciples didnt’ know what was up. When they discovered what had happened they met with Jesus over at Peter’s crib.

They told him:

Jesus, if you don’t get the heck out of town right now they are going to cut your freakin’ HEAD OFF!

They snuck him off to Somalia somewhere and hid him out. He slowly assimilated back into society there and lived out the rest of his years.

You ever heard a story like that?

Hey, I’m quoting his story almost verbatim. Sure I used a little creative license but I’m sure he wouldn’t mind.  It’s a strange world huh?

Why Do Christians Hate Harry Potter?

Christians hate the Harry Potter books. It’s undeniable. Just look at the media reports about how Christian parents around the country are trying to get the book banned from libraries and schools.

So, what’s the deal?

Should Christian’s hate Harry? Is that guy gonna bring down hellfire on society.. Lead millions of pre-teens to a everlasting vacation home at the lake of fire?

Do Christian’s really need to go to war with things?
Haha…That’s an idea for another post.. 🙂

Right now were talking about Harry – The teenage wizard guy.  The magic he does is “satanic” if I’m not mistaken. Black cat’s, ghost’s, haunted houses and evil tree’s and all that.  DEVIL stuff.

Then there’s the Twilight Saga Do Christian’s hate that too?

J. K. Rowling is raking in the millions because she made a deal with the devil. -They met at the crossroads.

Wait, that’s an idea for another post! I’m having a real brainstorm moment here.

Hey, it’s gettin’  kinda  stupid…. Do you agree?  Come on… Let’s dance.
