A young seminary graduate was seeking to pastor his first church. One pulpit committee requested an interview. As the student and the committee gathered together, the chairman began the questioning. “Young man, do you know your Bible?” The young man replied, “Yes sir. I know the Bible from front to back.” Another asked, “Do you know the stories and parables?” The candidate answered, “Oh yes! I know all the stories and parables.” Another committee member said, “Tell us one of the parables of Jesus—let’s say the parable of the Good Samaritan.”

And so he did. It went like this.

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, who went down to Jericho by night and he fell among stony ground. And the thorns rose up and choked him nearly half to death. He said, ‘What shall I do?’ Then he said, ‘I shall arise and go to my father’s house.’ And he arose, and climbed up into a sycamore tree. The next day Solomon and his wife Gomorrah came by, and they carried him down to the ark for Moses to take care of him. And as he was going through the eastern gate into the ark, he caught his hair in a limb and he hung there for 40 days and 40 nights.

And afterwards, he hungered and the ravens came and fed him. The next day the three wise men came and carried him down to Nineveh. And when he got down there, he found Delilah sitting on the wall. He cried out, ‘Chunk her down, boys.’ And they said, ‘How many times shall we chunk her down, unto seven times?’ And he said, ‘Nay, but unto seventy times seven.’ So they chunked her down, 490 times. Then she burst asunder in their midst, and they picked up twelve baskets of her fragments. And they asked him, ‘Lord, in the resurrection, whose wife will she be?’”

The pulpit committee chairman said, “Folks, I think we ought to call him. I know he’s young, but he sure knows his Bible.”

I read these questions on the internet earlier, and thought I would try to find out if I have any followers that are smarter than me. I still haven't thought of some really good answers. Just a few possibilities. Please comment if you think you know the answers.

What happens if you are in a car going the speed of light, and you turn your headlights on?

If the tempature today is 0 degrees, and the whether man says, "tomorrow will be twice as cold, What will the tempature be?

"America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they share common principles of justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings."

Barack Obama

But what about the justice and tolerance?

Today was a very long day. We went to help some friends tear down a house. A very sturdy house at that, so it didn't come apart very easy. It's not to often that I pound something with a hammer, and it bounces back at me! =) We totally gutted the kitchen, and the other boys scraped shingles off the roof. I really feel for the Pehrsons, because they have had to do this every day for about week and a half, I think. The goal is to get as much done before Monday as possible, because that is when the bulldozer comes! Gotta get all the usable wood they can get before then.
Got to go and see our representative last Tuesday. Sorry I didn't get the best pictures, but in case you were wondering, he's the guy in the suit. :)

About Me

My photo
I am a 16 year old book lover who seems to have time for nothing else than school! I love every subject, with math as an exception. I am totally crazy about learning the globe, and studying foreign languages. I also have quite a passion for politics.(I know, I'm wierd.) Most importantly, I am proud to be a fundamental, independent, Bible believing, devil hating Christian, who has a desire to serve the Lord with my life. I believe the Bible from cover to cover. In fact, I even believe the cover! :) I live in a home with the most awsome family in the world, consisting of two parents, and five siblings. God has truly blessed! There is nothing better than the safety and security of a God fearing, Christian family!
