Taking “Bible Thumping” way too literally

“Holy Rollers”. “Jesus Freaks”. “Tongue Talkers”.

These are some of the terms of endearment given to Christians – regardless of denomination – from hell bent folk, atheists and staff members of the ACLU alike. OK, just joshin’… atheists got a shot to salvation (ba-dum-dum-ching).

However, probably the most infamous of all monikers is “Bible Thumper”. Minister an uncompromised word to anyone in the workplace and you’ll get this one.

Or, if you are uber bad witness for Christ and Tampa Bay, Fla. town oaf Mark Alan Sutto seen muggin’ right here.

Police say 48-year old Mark Alan Sutto was delivering a street sermon when he interfered with the Turkey Trot 10K on Thursday by shouting at runners, getting in their way and waving a large Bible in their path.

So, you got indignant about your message. So, you felt the power of God move you. So… you proceeded to deck passer-by joggers (running for charity no less) with the Old Testament side of your Bible?! Dude, this is not called in seminary “effective witnessing.”

Just tell me you used a perfunctory Amplified version. You know, something that doesn’t chafe in the cold of winter like a Dakes, a petrified Family Bible or one of those NAB Catholic Bibles that weigh close to the size of a small toddler.

Etiquette, dude.

    Thanks to you both, Pugnacious and TT. If Jesus isn’t fun, I don’t know what can be. Can I get an Amen or koo-koo-ka-choo?!

    Peace,
