The Dead Mule

A Pastor went to his church office on Monday morning and discovered a dead mule in the church yard. He telephoned the police. Since there did not appear to be any foul play, the police referred the Pastor to the Health Department.

They explained, “Since there was no health threat you’ll need to call the Sanitation Department.”

When the pastor called the Sanitation Department, the Manager of the Sanitation Department said, “I can’t pick up that dead mule without authorization from the mayor.”

The Pastor was not at all too eager to call the mayor, who possessed a very bad temper and was always extremely unpleasant and hard to deal with, but, eventually, the Pastor called the mayor anyway.

The mayor did not disappoint the Pastor. The mayor immediately began to rant and rave. After his continued rant at the pastor, the mayor finally said, “Why did you call me anyway? Isn’t your job to bury the dead?”

The pastor paused for a brief prayer, and asked the Lord to direct his response. The lord led the pastor to the words he was seeking, “Yes, Mayor, it IS my job to bury the dead, BUT I always like to notify the next of kin first!”

This IS the Pop Quiz

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

Last week I blogged about homosexuality but I have to apologize for my failure. I should have ended the blog with a question. After realizing my error I decided to ask that question in this week’s blog and leave you with a few hints to the correct answer in a multiple choice format. Some may have to read last week’s blog to answer this question remember it is multiple choice. I will post the answer(s) on next week blog.

  1. Was the blog titled “This is not a Pop Quiz” a discussion of:

A) Homosexuality

B) Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king 1Peter2:17 (NKJV)

C) A Gay friend

D) I give you a new commandment that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another John 13:34 (NRSV)

E) Respect all people

F) Who is Cergie?

G) Love for the Christian brotherhood

H) 489…487…486…485…48?

I) Forgiveness

J) The Ten Commandments

K) Daily Prayer

L) What happened to 488?

M) Other Christians and their opinions

N) 42

O) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16 (NKJV)

P) All the above

Q) Can I pick more than one answer?

R)  21 Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” 22 “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven! Matthew 18:21-22 (NLT)

S) Love all people

T) Now all of the above

U) All of the above except for F and N

V) All of the above except for F, N, and Q

W) All of the above except for F, U, N, and Q

X) All of the above except for W, F, U, V, N, Q and P

Y) All of the above except for W, F, U, V, N, P and Q. Homosexuality is still a sin in my opinion.

Z) X+Y-T=Z + Delta where Z is the sum and Delta is the symbol for change. Therefore the answers X + Y is the sum of all the answers that apply to the question and Delta is the change where you, the reader, insert your opinions as well.

Amadeus – Storm

I found this group by accident and thought highly of their version of Vivaldi “Four Seasons Summer Presto”.  Aside from the fact that I really classical music I found this very upbeat and energetic.

11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1Thessalonians 5:11 (NLT)
