    Great news... the Holy Observer website is back up and running. They they start their new edition with some ways to spice up your boring Bible study. Here are a few of my favorites: Mention you're not sure who you'll vote for in the upcoming democratic primary. Or maybe Insist that The Message is the only true Word of God...

      Announce that since you don’t have anything to do on Friday nights anyway, that you’ve joined the local Mosque to hedge your bets…

      Suggest that doing a group session of Christian yoga is a great way to start off the study and “get centered”.  (That one’s for you, Peter, hehe).

      Whoa! Some of those were inappropriate! I’m all for humor, but let’s be careful.

    4. Peter Hamm on Fri, September 21, 2007

      Nora. That is FUNNY!

    5. Robert on Sat, September 22, 2007

      Is this supposed to be funny? I’d say that those were wholly inappropriate.

      PS: if you have a boring bible study maybe it’s not the bible’s fault?

      I thought they were hilarious!  (Although I was offended by the huggy bear one… Honestly.)

      we did a shirts and skins bible study but it got canceled once I took my shirt off.

    8. Peter Hamm on Mon, September 24, 2007



      A couple people here have seen me without a shirt… so that will NEVER happen here…

      I’m glad The Holy Observer is back up.  I missed them.

      And for those who don’t know, it is a satire/humor site.  Nothing on it is serious, but it is not for the easily offended.

    10. Robert on Mon, September 24, 2007


      I realize that it’s satire/humor…but a Christian should strive to honor God in his actions, and bathroom humor isn’t one of them…

      My rule of thumb is this: you can tell what you’re currently doing is ok with God if you are comfortable with being raptured at that exact moment in time and explaining to Him what you were doing.

    11. Leonard on Mon, September 24, 2007

      I don’t believe in the rapture so how can I tell? (imagine a winking smiley face right here)

    12. Daniel on Mon, September 24, 2007

      Leonard, you beat me to that thought!  (the winking smiley face is a semi-colon, dash, parenthesis conjunction, in case you want to try it out for yourself—although it might work without the dash).

      Robert, I think God can handle jokes about the awkward topic of masturbation.  But dissing huggy bears is clearly over the line.

    13. Jim W on Mon, September 24, 2007

      Leonard, you may not believe in the rapture, but you probably expect to die one day. I’d say the same principle applies. Would you be comfortable explaining to God what you were doing at the moment your heart stopped? I doubt that God would approve of mocking someone who cares about honoring Him. What do you think?

    14. Leonard on Mon, September 24, 2007

      Hey Jim,

      I am not mocking you, sorry if you feel that way.  I suggest that you read the heading under which this was posted.  Humor.  I really believe it is okay to have some fun.

      I think God would get a kick out of it.  I didn’t see anything in the list that defames Him. 

      Peter - I absolutely love the “hedge your bets” one.  A friend of mine has started telling her parents that anytime they ask her what religion she plans on raising her kids.  FYI, she’s not even pregnant.
