Some Humor from the Bible.....
Referring to those who preached circumcision, Saint Paul wished theywould slip with their surgical instruments. He states:
Would that those who are upsetting you might also castrate themselves! (Gal 5:12)Writing to Christians living in Crete, Saint Paul says this:
For there are also many rebels, idle talkers and deceivers, especially the Jewish Christians. It is imperative to silence them, as they are upsetting whole families by teaching for sordid gain what they should not. One of them, a prophet of their own, once said, "Cretans have always been liars, vicious beasts, and lazy gluttons." That testimony is true.(Titus 1:10-13)Even our Lord had a sense of humor. Read the following passage paying close attention to the humor of the entire situation:
Then the Pharisees went off and plotted how they might entrap him in speech.They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. And you are not concerned with anyone's opinion, for you do not regard a person's status. Tell us, then, what is your opinion: Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?" Knowing their malice, Jesus said, "Why are you testing me, you hypocrites? Show me the coin that pays the census tax." Then they handed him the Roman coin. He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?" They replied, "Caesar's." At that he said to them, "Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God." When they heard this they were amazed, and leaving him they went away. (Matthew 22:15-22)Peace and blessings!
