Should you give god your money when you have money?
Should you give god your money when you have plenty?
Well. TV Evangelist Kenneth Copeland – the guy that basically tried to blow co-vid19 away – reckons there are two times in everyones’ lives that they should give money…
When you’re asked what you think about the Bible, and dont have an answer…
Every week, sofa posts a round up of stuff that didn’t make it to its own post. Considering some of the news from this week, I’m going to try and minimise my comment a little on the below.
On a light note – todays round up is being typed to the back drop of “The Odd Squad” from CBBC. (Thats right, not cbeebies, little sofa is growing up!)
Donald Trump and The Bible.
Well, in case you’ve missed it. Here’s a summery of what Donald did with the Bible.
I’m not in the habit of quoting The Bible Society, but they’ve not held back with that they think…
It’s not entirely clear what Mr Trump intended to convey by this photo-op, but it’s a disturbing image. Certainly he outraged the church’s bishop: Rt Revd Mariann Budde told CNN, ‘Let me be clear, the President just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus.’
It’s genuinely troubling to see the Bible being used as a prop – particularly when, as the bishop says, it’s associated with images of violence. Co-opting the Bible as a justification for repression is unacceptable.The Bible Society
When Pat Robertson Has Something To Say…
… and you think you agree????
When Ivanka Trump joins in…
Sounds of Hope
Lets start somewhere?
Can I recommend this tweet?
In fact, how about clicking through to the above tweet, and give the suggestions a read.
Lets try and stay well, and look out for each other?
Some useful tips, and names for the Bible holding positions we all know and love!
I’ve spent a while pondering over this.
After all, what does a little blog about funny Church things have to offer this subject?
Answer. Probably not much.
Does that mean I should say nothing?
If you’re speaking up about this properly, bless you. Thank you for your example. Please forgive those who are just catching up.
Every week, Sofa rounds up the bits and pieces that kinda haven’t made it into a complete post… actually thats the aim. Not done one of these for a while, I guess its been a casualty of… you know… everything going a bit… weird. (Is “weird” the right word?)
I also wonder if there’s been a drop in “Churchy” news as well? Or at least a drop in news about Churches not being… silly.
Enter this week…
Wishing the Bishop Well…
Was all that the Minister Micheal Gove could say in an interview this week, when asked about Dominic Cummings…
Wait for it…
Supporting Trump is “The Gospel”
Or, at least an expression of it.
And finally – Lets open the Churches!
The R Number is rumoured to be increasing.
People are angry at government hypocrisy.
There are concerns about people gathering on beaches.
People are still worried about their health.
Lets open the Churches! (Personally I once heard a sermon preached about the church not being about the building – but the people. But I guess that was wrong)
Wash your hands.
