christian humor: RockTV


Category : bible, faith, humor, living a life of faith


I’m feeling a little under the weather today.  And I’m really hoping that it’s not the [cue ominous music] dreaded H1N1.  So I thought something a little lighthearted would be in order.  Which is why I turned to my old standby of RockTV.  They are one of the few Christian comedic groups that’s actually funny.

So much of what passes for “Christian humor” just isn’t funny at all.  But RockTV is different.  They blend hilariousness (is that even a word?) with serious theological points.  Not everyone can be funny and right at the same time.  But RockTV pulls it off time and again.

As we head into the weekend, relax, enjoy your Friday evening, and laugh a little at the latest from RockTV.

history of the world, part 1: the 10 Commandments

Category : bible, humor, just for fun


In the post, “guard your heart,” I wrote that every time we break one of the 10 Commandments we do serious damage to our heart.  We just weren’t designed to live the way we are choosing to live.  In their book, Jesus Wants to Save Christians, Rob Bell and Don Golden agree, saying, “What God begins …with the 10 Commandments is the long process of teaching [Israel] how to be human again.”

God gave us the 10 Commandments not as punishment for being disobedient, but as a guide to how to live a better life.

That’s the serious side of all of this.  But since it’s Friday, and I just managed to run my USB drive through the washing machine, I feel like a little laughter.  So here is Mel Brook’s take on the 10 Commandments
