Donald Trump. The Given Son?

Donald Trump, the given son?

In this weeks episode of “Satire is pretty well dead”, it appears that this is a real sign over in America. For those unsure, the Bible verse, Romans 8:17 is:

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

And yes, there is a hint of Isaiah about the text:

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Which (and I’m no Bible expert), I’m fairly certain is referring to Jesus. Not Donald Trump.

Again.

Jesus. Not Trump.

What the “Joint heirs” bit refers to…

Any ideas?

The State of “Let Us Worship” in America

Now, I’m not sure. But I’m sure the “Let Us Worship” events were originally meant to be protest/worship events based around the option around indoor worship events being closed.

Because… you know… public health impacts ability to worship indoors safely.

Its been awhile since I’ve gone to a worship event, but I’m fairly certain the “talkie bits”, weren’t like this…

Perhaps we were doing it wrong?

Theological Question of The Week

Masks are demonic entities?

(With plenty of swearing incoming…)

Did Jim Bakker Say That God Can’t Hear Prayers Through a Mask?

Well… Someone could possible imagine Jim Bakker saying:

How can you go to church and pray when you’re wearing a mask? Do you think God can hear your prayers through a mask?” —- Televangelist Jim Bakker

Which is a quote from a now deleted tweet (poor guy), which according to snopes, is itself quoting a satire website thebiznews.org… which from the looks of it appears to be The Babylon Bee for the other side of the force.

So thats a lot of quotes from quotes there.

Whats my point?

Can we please be careful over the information we all share? This isn’t a “Twitter thing” at all, but its about the information we all share with each other. (Be it on Twitter, WhatsApp prayer groups, Church Facebook groups, etc)

Can I suggest one thing to combat misinformation like this?

If it sounds crazy too good to be true, google it.

If it sounds crazy bad – or just crazy, google it.

And obviously, if you see The Sofa share something. Feel free to tweet him about it. Nicely….
