Classics #2


  1. Wonderful work, Nicos. Now be sure to hide it from Rick Warren...he might eat it!

  2. I've always suspected that there was more to the "unknown god" story than what the theologians have been teaching us ________

    Especially those kill-joy Reformed theologians, who have this thing about not speculating beyond that which can be necessarily inferred from scripture.

  3. Thanks for making me laugh, the days can be stressful and sometimes we just need a laugh, and I know that everyday, I can find one here! Thanks Brother!

    I know! Those Reformers miss so many blessings...and they're limiting God!

    Just look at Acts 17:18-21&32
    Then[a] certain Epicurean and Stoic philosophers encountered him. And some said, “What does this babbler want to say?”
    Others said, “He seems to be a proclaimer of [Greek:tasty] foreign gods,” because he preached to them Jesus and the resurrection.
    19 And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, “May we know what this new doctrine is of which you speak? 20 For you are bringing some strange things to our ears. Therefore we want to know what these things mean.” 21 For all the Athenians and the foreigners who were there spent their time in nothing else but either to tell or to hear some new thing [Greek:and also eat chocolate]...
    32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked

    The Epicureans were mocking because of their guilty conscience. The aches of their stomachs were a reminder of the "divine" Chocolate God they had eaten for morning tea.
    This made them particularly cranky and it was nearly their nap time. Hence their rude behaviour towards Paul.

    (ok so I was a tad blasphemous...I was just trying to fairly imitate a certain person who wrote measure of a [guess] with his wife.)

  5. For some people, Godiva chocolate is still an idol!
