myspace and jesus

Confession: I’m a MySpace junkie. Sometimes it’s bad. Other times, it’s good – like today, when I found out there’s one place in all of the Twin Cities that’s actually celebrating Fat freakin’ Tuesday tonight.

This is the latest "forward" that’s going on in the MySpace community (if you can even call it that):

Unfortunately, 97% of myspacers won’t repost this. When Jesus died on the cross He was thinking of you. If you are one of the 3% who will stand up for Him. John 3:16!!!!
just repost this with your city’s name

Remember, he said if you deny him, he will deny you

I’m not exactly a Bible-reciting type of person, but I did my fair share of Sunday School goin’ and Bible Study attendin’ when I was too young to use working at Taco Bell as an excuse to bail on organized religion. And John 3:16 is one of the few pieces of scripture that I have actually retained over the years; Isaiah 1:17 being another one. In the book of John, chapter 3, verse 16, I’m about 14056540% sure there’s no mention of reposting MySpace bulletins. And for that matter, I’m also 14056540% certain when "Jesus died on the cross", as it mentions, he wasn’t shouting REPOST THIS BULLETIN ON MYSPACE, MY CHILDREN.

And really, when I kick the bucket at the ripe age of 219, if I’m gonna get denied entrance into Heaven, I really want it to be for denying Jesus on MySpace.

  1. For God so loved the world that he created MySpace to weed out people who would deny the Son.

    Who is celebrating Fat Tuesday in town? I looked for someplace I could celebrate with a teenage kid in tow, and only found Dixies, and I’m not sure I could bring her there. Might try, though.

What's up?
