the earth is groaning

recently overheard at the local laundromat --
“girl, the earth is groaning. it is gr-oaning from sin. and that sin stinks. i tell you it sTiNkS in the nose of the lord … girlfriend beLIEVE me. sometimes god … he let’s terrible things happen to people. but you know – it makes the s-NAP back in line and pay attention to what the good lord is tryin’ to tell them. i tell you somethin’ girlfriend – he. will. change. your. life.”

now, i mean no offense to any christian, but no wOnDeR so many of us have serious doubts about the religion when there are people like this preaching their own version of the gospel at the laundromat.

can’t a girl just wash her panties in peace? isn’t it torture enough that they insist on playing jerry springer on the store television?

Maybe you should stick to washing your panties in the sink.

It makes no sense. That's not even spreading the word. That's... well... that's something else. I don't know what it is. But not exactly getting the point across.

My word verification is judgcuz... weird. The word verifications freak me out. Big time.

I am FILLED with Christ's love!

Ah, witnessing. Fascinating little concept.

I think this is better:
Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.

estelle- i diverge, but i have to say that sometimes i look at the word verifications and can connect them to real words/phrases that relate to the post i'm commenting on.

too much work?

Ahhh, the laundromat. My favorite version of a cultural experience, no doubt.
