What do you get when you take comedy and awful Christian media? You get this podcast that I am so in love with. Good Christian Fun is honest in breaking down some of Christianity’s good and bad media productions like music and movies.
I went to their live show on Saturday and I literally was in tears crying because it is so funny with hosts Kevin and Caroline just talking freely about Christianity like that. They are Christians but they aren’t afraid to be honest. If something sucks, it sucks. If it’s good, it’s good. But man, we have to have a sense of humor and not be overprotective of these things. Not everything in Christian media is good. Some of it is just real bad.
I laughed so hard. Oh it was a riot having guest Matt Gourley also share about his experience.
I can’t wait for this episode to go out to the public. I am listening to this over and over again!
Take a look at the above graphic. Oh I love it!
If you are in a Christian circle, you’ll know what this is about. Christians have these certain lingos that we throw around so often that it either loses meaning or it actually makes the person hearing it react differently that intended. It’s not to say it’s just Christianity. Every group has their own lingo. But having been in a Christian circle pretty much my entire life, I know these terms and it can get annoying.
For example, I shared this.
People have acne and it is a serious condition. But hey, let’s make it a kids toy or something like that.
This also reminds me of people who wear glasses simply for fashion, not a prescription. I wear glasses because I need it to see. How are you turning my condition into a fashion statement?
This is your America!
Well, it’s happened again.
As you can see, I left food in the office fridge on Friday so I can eat it the next day when I came in. When I got there the next day, the food was gone. I don’t know who did it and this is not the first time someone stole my pizza.
I got co-workers who support me. HR is going to investigate as this apparently is an ongoing trend around the building.
WOW! Sam making changes.
Yeah this looks bad. But I also know that it was just worded poorly. You wouldn’t have “good” in quotes unless it is implying something about it.
Teacher could have worded it by saying “Name three reasons why slave owners wanted slavery” or something along those lines. It’s necessary to understand why people do certain things, even if it’s bad. But this is just poor word choice.
It’s hard to deal with death when it involves somebody you knew. It’s a different feeling you get when it involves different people and how the relationship was with them.
I remember a couple years ago I found out an old co-worker took his life. I only knew him for the several months we worked together so it wasn’t a deep relationship and we hadn’t talked since. But it hurt me knowing that someone who had a small impact on my life is gone.
Today I found out that a friend of mine passed away. It’s hard thing to take in right now. We had known each other since we were in elementary school and through high school. Although our friendship wasn’t extremely close, I still consider our friendship a good one. We would interact a little through Facebook and we saw each other at school reunions.
But it hurts right now because I don’t know how to take it in. I wonder if I had never moved from the Bay, we probably would have had a better friendship seeing each other. I also know that in those brief moments we did share together, they were fun and full of joy.
I feel sadness. I feel heartbroken. Even though we weren’t close, it breaks my heart. My buddy was my age. At such a young age too!
I have memories that I hold on to with my buddy. I keep remembering the great things I learned. One of the best writing tips I learned from you. The love of life, I picked up from you. I always felt that I could trust you when I needed help.
This is hard. Rest in peace my friend.
Probably the worst Christmas commercial I have ever seen. This company, along with Apple’s “What’s a computer?”, is so far removed from reality.
The car bow commercials have existed for years, but it’s been so ingrained into this boy’s mind that every Christmas he expects to see a new car parked outside. This is not normal behavior. This is also not reality. Where in the world where this type of mindset and expectations are normal things you allow your kid to live with?
These commercials have warped this boy’s mind where even into his adulthood, he hopes that someone would just gift him a brand new luxury car. SMH.
WHAT REALITY ARE YOU IN?
