"Thou Shalt Not" Sunday

Because it is the Lord’s Day, I would like us all to take a moment to reflect on God’s rules for holy living.

The fourth commandment: “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.” And, the equally holy twelfth commandment: Thou Shalt Have No Mercy on a Crapweasel.”

If you don’t remember numero doce from Sunday school, you’re a heathen. No, actually, it’s because God forgot to give it to Moses on the top of Mt. Sinai. When He realized his error some thousand-odd years later, He cried out to Himself:

“God, oh God, what have I done??? I must fix this immediately.”

So, He created a modern day Moses—Robert Stacy McCain.

Now, it's us, His people, who are left to cry out, "God, oh God, what have You done???"

UPDATE:
Via the comment section, I have been notified by the modern day Moses himself, that I am a heathen. (I think he's judging me for my porn star aspirations.)

As any good minion would do, I have acknowledged the error of my ways and as penance will spend the day repeating the phrase "Scrofulous Crapweasel." Not because it will make me any less heathen, but because it's just so much fun to say.

  1. OK, just don't blame me if you end up wandering the desert for 40 years.

    P.S.: The Sabbath declared by YWH on Mt. Sinai was the Seventh Day -- sundown Friday to sundown Saturday -- in commemoration of the fact that the Lord created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. That commandment has never been repealed or amended. You're not keeping the right day, you heathen!

  2. Suzanna: It's quite all right. Not that I want to be a name-dropper, but the Pope was just telling me the other day, over a hand of gin rummy, that Sunday makes a fine sabbath day, and he has no plans to change it.

    Thanks for the link, BTW!

  4. Hi! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I LOVE hearing about people who have hearts for the city. And I felt EXACTLY the same way when I first started working with the kids. Like something just clicked into place and I was finally doing what I was supposed to be doing. I love it! :-) Thanks for following - I'd love to hear more about what you're doing in B'ham (I love that place - I lived there for a year when I went to Samford) And let me know if you hear of any more great blogs about inner-city ministry - I love reading them!
