Turn Off Your Phone

A member of my church named Wes sent this to me and recommended that we play it every Sunday before the sermon. Not a bad idea.

I love it.

I love this!! Thank you, Josh! lol

That is hilarious. I love it.

Ooh, too good!

Uh...that was NOT funny. Is nothing unworthy of humor these days? What if someone recently had a death in their family? This is just the sort of over the top "humor" the world uses that is both stupid and crass. I am quite surprised that many Christians seem to think it clever and funny. where is our discernment and maturity anyway?

Sorry you feel that way. I don't think the clip is mocking funerals. In my opinion it's pointing out how insensitive people can be with their use of cell-phones. The humor is that we all wish this kind of instant justice visited those who so crassly use and abuse cell-phone technology. I respect your right to an opinion, but please don't assign motives to those of us who find it humorous.

I don't think the clip was mocking funerals in particular either, Josh. Nor do I think that Julie was assigning a wrong motive to anyone. But I would tend to agree with her:

The world takes that which is enormously serious and turns it into foolishness and a joke. The example in this video exemplifies the characteristic of those people under the wrath of God for being "without natural affection" (Rom 1:31). Let us not then become like them who "have pleasure in them that do them" (v 32).

Oh that our great God may lead us all to feed on the infinite comforts of the Holy Spirit in preference to husks--that we may live all the more to the praise of the glory of His grace!

With sincere affection,
David

Right before prayer this past Sunday, "Life is A Highway" By Rascal Flatts started playing right behind me. I buried my head in my hands in embarassment.

Julie needs to lighten up. Don't take life too seriously. I mean life's too short to be cranky. Live and Laugh!
