Sometimes the Bible makes me laugh.

I read this and about spit coffee through my nose!

Listen to me, you fat cows living in Samaria, you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy, and who are always calling to your husbands, “Bring us another drink!”
Amos 4:1 NLT.

Look it up (link) if you think I made that up. Wow! I’m known as a pretty “plain spoken” preacher but I think even I would have to ask “Are you sure that’s what you want me to say, God?” before I let that one fly. I love that the Bible is full of real men who were not afraid to speak the hard truths!

  1. Don,

    I was just talking about this topic with a friend of mine on yesterday… we were laughing at Judges 3:20-22… We definitely need to point out the humor in Scripture, especially those who see it as irrelevant!

    BTW… love your blog!


  2. Very funny Darren. How about Judges 3:23 …”and he climbed down the latrine and escaped through the sewage access… Makes me think that sometimes to “lead a revolution” you gotta be willing to “go through some crap.
