Quote of the Day

I think it's true that, of all the bloggers I know personally, I'm the only one who hasn't been awarded the "Thinking Blogger Award." That may be because I post things like the following quotation from Martin Luther's "Never Debate with Satan When Alone," made known to me by the great Drew Blankman:

Almost every night when I wake up, the devil is there and wants to dispute with me. I have come to this conclusion: when the argument that the Christian is without the law and above the law doesn’t help, I instantly chase him away with a fart.


Feel free to post your favorite quirky quotations from Christian history. I've got a bunch from the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture floating around my office.

I've never gotten the thinking blogger award, either.

Of course, I was the proud recipient of the stinking blogger award awhile back. (Thanks, Craver!)

"Hey Craver! Over here! This guy REALLy deserves a stinking blogger award, dontcha think? I mean, he said the word 'fart' and everything!"

David, you ARE a great thinker and dear friend!

(Solemnly) And now...
*Whereas you have a sidebar with images of athletic types who wear the same sweaty clothes day after day,
*and whereas you have an image above that one with a donkey, which is somewhat associated with a pungent odor,
*and whereas you have used the word "fart" in this post, (it gives new meaning to "loud time," eh?)

I am privileged to bestow upon you my most prized possession. The Stinking Blogger Award. And now, let all the fellowship greet one another with the secret handshake: Pull my finger.

Thanks, Craver. Thanks, Llama Momma. Thanks, Charity. Right back atchall.

Kind of puts a new perspective on Luther, doesn't it? (Was that quote in What Has Christianity Ever Done for Us? I do use a portion of his Luther description in my book, but, ah.... not this part.)

Awww, Dave. Sorry you were feeling left out. I guess I thought it was a given, that you're blog stinks . . . I mean, makes me think. (Seriously. It does.)

Hey Dave, no thinker award over at SIS either - your not alone at all. And besides, we all know you are the original king of the blogosphere - our inspiration, our source of great gas filled gufaws.

Stacey gets the "Oh, what you must think of me!" award. I was pretty sure I'd seen that tossed in your direction, though.

Gas-filled guffaws. Hah!

The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer. See the link below for more info.
