The Protestant and his Three Huts

by Steve Ray on February 26, 2014

I posted this a long time ago, but thought it would be fun to represent it.

A Protestant was stranded all alone on an island. He begins sending smoke signals, hoping that somebody will find him.

Ten years pass, and a boat is sailing by. The captain notices the smoke signals, and decides to pull into the island. When he docks, he sees three huts.

The Protestant runs out and embraces the captain, and says, “Thank you for rescuing me!” The captain says, “No problem, where are the others?” The man says, “There is only me, I am all alone on this island.”

The captain, confused, asks, “If you are all alone, then why are there three huts?”

The man says, “Well, the first hut is where I live, that’s my home. The second hut is my church, where I worship.” The captain asks, “And what is the third hut?” The man says, “Oh, that was the church I used to go to.”

Cartoon on Protestantism and the Bible

by Steve Ray on February 7, 2014

When I look back on my experience I find this cartoon has a ring of truth. There were many verses of the Bible that I either didn’t realize existed (though that may seem strange) or that we just ignored.

Other verses I just read with my “Baptist glasses” on and twisted them to fit my old tradition. Looking back it makes me happier than ever to be a Catholic.

How Many Christians to Change a Lightbulb?

May 10, 2013

PRESBYTERIANS: None – Lights will go on and off at predestined times. ROMAN CATHOLICS: None, they only use candles. BAPTISTS: At least [...]

BIBLICAL MISINTERPRETATION

April 27, 2013

Misinterpretation of the Bible reviewed: For those who haven’t heard, Washington State just passed both laws – gay marriage and legalized marijuana. The fact that gay marriage and marijuana were legalized on the same day makes perfect biblical sense because Leviticus 20:13 says “If a man lies with another man they should be stoned.” I [...]
