Them: Live biblically

Every now and then, Twitter plays a game. Recently a game has been played which I’ll call “Live biblically”.

I don’t know how “Live Biblically” started, but it seems to be based around people being told to live biblically, then actually thinking about what it means. (In their own personal opinion…)

Here’s some some of my favourites…

Have a look over at Twitter for… quite a few more.

For a slightly different take, check out the What Would Jesus Do Generator.

When in an Emergency…

Call 999 (or 911 if you’re in America). Please call emergency services. Also pray if that’s what you do, but please call for emergency services.

Please. DO NOT stop and read your Bible if you need to call for an ambulance. Call for the ambulance first. While praying. THEN read your bible once its all calmed down.

Please.

Santa and Jesus, A Comparison.

May I present, not one. But two comparisons between Jesus, and Santa Claus.

The first is this little video…

The second is this very serious Bible study*. Which looks at a number of comparisons… for example, I never knew that God said “…Ho, Ho…”

On that note, does anyone know the Bible Verse about Jesus wearing crimson red? I remember coming up with a biblically based reason why Santa was red**… but I kinda need that Bible verse to be able to talk about it…

*One or two verses may be a little out of context.

** Plot Twist. Its not very Biblical.

Keeping Christian Families Entertained During The Holidays

Welcome to the school holidays! If you don’t have kids, this probably means an easier journey to work, if you do this probably means you, or someone else needs to come up with ways to stop the little darlings from watching nothing but Cbeebies all day long. 

But what can be done to entertain young Christian families throughout the holidays? Well Sofa is here to help*.

Here is our list of ways to keep Christian families entertained during the school holidays…

  1. Compile a list of all the local holiday clubs. GET TO ALL OF THEM.
  2. Learn a Bible verse a day.
  3. Colour in pencil drawings of crosses.
  4. Picnics! AKA portable communions…
  5. Go on a family pilgrimage. (Possibly to the local cheap family friendly pub)
  6. Take all your toilet rolls and try recreating the Tower of Babel.
  7. Encourage the smalls ones to make a joyful noise! Joyful… may mean screaming…
  8. Build a castle out of left over Bible study notes.
  9. Is it raining outside? Time to encourage baptisms in the puddles.
  10. When all else fails… 80s Christians movies on Youtube? (On second thoughts dont do that. Some of them are quite scary!)

Any other ideas you would like to add?

*Obviously “help” is a subjective concept…

When Small Ones Delay Bedtime…

It was bedtime,

And there I am, about to charge into the bathroom to ask the small one why she’s messing around when cleaning her teeth… and it turns out she’s trying to read Bible Study Notes.

I guess that’s one way of avoiding bedtime?
