IN CONTRAST.. You could spend several hours sitting on a hard wooden pew in church singing a hymn or three, listening to a sermon where the vendors are replaced with ushers who also take your money but there will be no food for you!.. Advantage.. FOOTBALL
IN CONTRAST.. the church offers potluck dinners where there are more ways to fix a macaroni cassarole/hotdish than there are stars in the sky. Advantage: DINING OUT
IN CONTRAST.. Mother Theresa ran hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens, dispensaries and mobile clinics; children's and family counselling programs; orphanages, and schools... BUT still no Twitter followers. So based on Twitter stats.. Advantage: KIM
IN CONTRAST.. Society teaches truth is a relative state of being for progressive thinkers. Our world is polytheistic where there are many ways to find god and/or truth. Based on the appearance of inclusivness (though Col Jessup scares me).. Advantage: SOCIETY
IN CONTRAST.. Theology is the study of the nature of God and religious belief. Of course there is no annual US budget on Theology. Resources like the bible are used to support these studies. If money means anything.. Advantage: NASA
What if part of the next year's $18 billion NASA budget was spent on understanding our creator rather than His creation?
What if our very broken society honored the Truth of our bibles?
What if we quit following the vanity tweets of Kim Kardashian, but instead emulated the selfless work of Mother Theresa?
What if on Sunday we honored God with our worship with more passion than we show the Super Bowl?
So my conclusion: God is not boring, but the little box we attempt to put him in is pathetic. What if there was a spiritual revival of our nation where we pursue God like a spiritual Hubble Telescope? I know one thing.. we would not be bored.
May God bless each of us today free from society's buffet for the senses, but instead pursue what is important. To love God and care for others (God's two greatest commandments Mt 22:36-40) is anything but boring!
