I Bottled it!

Funny thing today..

Walking across the University Campus heading towards the Chaplaincy and saw a student with a T-shirt with a picture of Jesus on it. On the T-shirt he word CRUCIFIED was prominently displayed below the picture, it looked good and I thought, wow maybe he’s a proud Christian…

So I slowed down my pace and waited for him to draw level with me…

“Cool T-Shirt” I said,

“Thank you” he said in reply looking downwards slightly in a modest way

“where did you get it from?” I asked

“Oh, a shop in London, nowhere special” He said, still in a modest way,

This has to be a Christian, I thought to myself

“Are you Christian?” I asked

“No, have you seen the back of my T-Shirt?” he said

and he turned to display the message on his back,

It Read
“And all I got was the this lousy T-Shirt, Bloodhound gang 2000a.d.

an he began to walk away…

At this point I thought to myself, ‘well if your complaining about only getting a T-Shirt when in comparison Jesus got Crucified you could always find God take up the Cross and get a proper Crucifying..’

And I was about to say it too, when…

I bottled it! LOL

I let him walk away, wounder. I wish I had said it, LOL

    maybe it was not the time for him to hear
    and maybe it is just one of those times that you will look back and learn from
    but deffo do not beat your self up over it and do not let the enemy do it for you
    just pray for him that something through your comment stuck a cord and maybe God will allow your paths to cross again
    bless ya

  2. Dee, Thanks for your concern. Good advice too.

    I’m not beating myself up over it though, I thought it was funny ;o)~.

    I can’t believe it! You are advocating the crucifixion of someone whose views you disagree with! How barbaric!

  4. Hero,

    Was that said in jest?
    I initial thoughts were in jest and my entry is not a serious one.

    Yes, I agree, Hero. This would be a completely barbaric thing to think if the crucifixion of which Darren speaks was a bad thing (and if it were not in jest, like he says). But, paradoxically, getting ‘crucified’ in the way that Jesus spoke of isn’t a bad thing, not according to Jesus anyway.

    But yes, I can see the funny side of this too. I bet the bloke with the t-shirt could as well!

    Just asking “Are you Christian?” I asked
    might well be the seed that starts the process of question asking..remember seeds count.

    Seeds don’t count if they fall on the wrong soil. That’s what the bible teaches us.
