A Baptist pastor was presenting a children's sermon.

During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was.

Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.

Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand........

The pastor called on him and the little boy said,

"I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."

It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.

Your quote was not from me.
I agree the Bible gets PI wrong.
I understand why it does, it also proves the Bible is NOT a science book. Only a complete lunatic would think it was.
How do you know for sure? Any fabricated object has a mean diameter. The circumference can change drastically from inner wall to outter wall.

I've been lucky, Skom. Some people look at me and feel pity. Some look at me and say, "There but for the grace of GOD, go I".
Some look at me furtively and shift their eyes when I look back. I observe.
I was lucky in that I have parents and friends that taught me to always assess the situation at hand. If it's a catastrophe, RUN...but always run toward it and never away from it. There will inevitably be people there that need help.
Pretty wise my friend

Two questions if you don't mind

What caused the situation with your leg?

And what is the proper emotional response? I know people don't want to be pitied and to be treated like anybody else. But obviously its a challenge you have to deal with. And is it insulting to express empathy? Or would interest be abetter route?

Normally how I have handled a situation is simply to ask someone like "hey if you don't mind me asking what happened?" They have always told me. I normally ask a question or two and then move on to regular conversation

I feel like pretending I am not aware of the situation comes off as fake. Yet I know people want to be treated lie anyone else would be treated

I have neevr had the opportunity to really ask someone and I feel comfortable enough with you and that you probably won't be offended so wa shoping i could learn a little from ya. What do you prefer from people? If its curiosity not pity, would you prefer someone acknowledge or do you feel like it isn't really their business?

Again, just asking cause obviously i don't wanna offend someone and have never really known for sure if it was stupid to ask. It never felt like anyone was offended but was wondering what your advice would be?

I was trying to think of what lines i could quote but without people understanding the movie was meant to mock racists, most of the funniest lines would appear racist

Meh, if people know the movie they will understand

"shoo that was lucky, we darn near lost a four hundred dollar hand cart"

Don't just lay there getting a suntan, ain't gonna do you no good anyhow."

Kill a bunch of kids?! Hmmm... 2 Kings 2:23-24?
"23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him.“Get out of here, baldy!” they said.“Get out of here, baldy!”
24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys."
The "children" who assaulted Elisha, based on the original Hebrew word, would have been between the ages of 13 and 29. Past their Bar Mitzi but not yet full adults. This gang of 42 (or more) young adults surrounded Elisha and began taunting him because of his scared vow (bald head) and mocking the ascension of his master Elijah ("Go up"), Had God not interfered, Elisha would probably have been beaten to death by this mob of teens and young adults.
Why didn't you address the rest RR?
BTW There are hundreds...verse & number.

What you said was totally untrue about the instructions to kill.

I got hit by a car.

I encourage people to ask. I'll take my leg off and show you how it works. I go to local schools and talk about it.

I'm not a freak. I'm not a Cyborg. Don't be afraid of me because I'm different. I'm also vegan and homosexual. Most schools don't want to hear about that. It's hard to get gigs :)

Its a pretty normal situation to me

If someone got an arm broke and had it in a cast nobody would think twice

The fact that the damage to the leg was severe enough to amputate is nothing more than a physical injury. It has nothing to do with who someone is as a person or the personality or intelligence

But I guess knowing there are idiots that can't grasp simple concepts like that makes me more determined not to fall into the same category and then I over-think stuff sometimes

Anyway, thanks for letting me know

Btw, gotta add to the jokes tonight

"A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says:''Ugh, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!'' The woman walks to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her:''The driver just insulted me!'' The man says:''You go up there and tell him off. Go on, I'll hold your monkey for you.'

That you are using an antiquated, medieval, ignorant interpretation.
Evil is not a created thing, nor is darkness. Evil is the absense of good and darkness is the absent of light.
There is a specific lack of the phrase 'God created darkness'.
So now if the bible disagrees with you, it is wrong too?

LOL!
