Sunday sermon.

Did Jesus turn over the tables of the money changers because they were taking up valuable real estate, or because they were profitting by selling trinkets that showed how pious you were.

If Jesus were here today, what would he turn over?

WWJD bracelets are out of style, but little yellow magnetic ribbons with cutout crosses on them would fit the bill.

Icthus fish plaques would certainly get the shaft.

What about the little fish plaques eating a Darwin fish?

Christianity (like any religion) isn't just a bumper sticker or trinket. It's living a certain way. You don't do it by hating others. You make yourself better, and in the process, you hope to help others along the way.

But that doesn't mean I can't have some fun along the way.
