God's Inbox

Has anyone else saw this?

Now considering the source and the location in the magazine, I expected some liberal-leaning tendencies, political twists, and some humor. But, it provoke a lot of other thoughts and feelings in me as well.

Thoughts about our prayer lives and what they "appear" to be to the outside world...
Of the 24 "emails", less than five appear to be "legit" prayers...
That they have three emails entitled "Let the unbelievers perish" from Muslim, Christian, and Jewish authors...
An email from our president with regards to Iraq...
An email from a reknown atheist (huh?)...
An email from Buddha...
An email from Zeus...
An email from Mary with regards to a DNA test request from Joseph...

I don't know whether to be offended, exasperated, or to have a chuckle and toss the magazine away.

What do you all think?

I thought it was kind of funny. Then again, my sense of humor is a little twisted. Is it ok for a christian to have a twisted sense of humor? I might not share it with unbelievers because it might be taken as an attempt to show that all religions are bogus.

Off-topic - how are your little ones? Recovering? (I hope).

I agree with Sara, on all 3 counts! *grin* :D

Anita- thanks for asking- #1 only stayed on the couch and in the bathroom for 24 hours. #2 (nor me or Da Hubby) has ever shown signs. Praise God!

Oh, I got mixed up then, I thought it was your little #2 who was sick. Glad to hear you are all well now!
