Fast Food From the God Box; "WTF Clouds"
Okay, I'll admit it - I'm a strange sort of Christian. I defy the stereotype and always felt very uncomfortable trying to pretend to be just like God. It's impossible and it feels downright mean to put on a holier than thou persona - not to mention, it makes me feel fake.

To complicate matters I fully admit to having something that I can only define as inaudible Torrettes Syndrome. The discipline that it takes not to act out or speak out regarding the many WTFs that run through my mind is not a strength I can stake claim to. If it weren't for faith, I'd surely let it all out.

Strange as it may seem I do believe that God understands my WTF questions. I believe it was an intended part of the whole free-will addition to our meta-physical make-up. Often somebody does something that make us all wonder what in the world possessed them to do such a thing. God knows the answer and I'm content with knowing that at least He does - even though I do not.

Then there are times like a week ago when our roof blows off at 3:30 am in the morning. The Insurance adjuster defined it on paper this week as an Act of God. Thankfully I have the insurance to cover this damage and also I am Thankful to God himself that I have the assurance to be able to deal with it.

Christians come in many different shapes, sizes and talents. God is so infinitely BIG that it takes a whole lot of us to represent Him and His many traits. I'm content representing His awesome all encompassing grace.

After all, next to the Platypus - I'm most likely next in line for being the highest generator of WTF questions.

    Platypuses (I thought it was Platypi but spell checkkk seems to disagree) are awesome. Who would win, God or an army of 100 million Platypuses?

    They're awesome because they're Australian.

    I'm agnostic though I understand 100% what you're saying. I act in very much the same way even though I don't believe in a specific God, I try to be as well natured as possible on the outside ;)

    Love this thought:
    "Thankfully I have the insurance to cover this damage and also I am Thankful to God himself that I have the assurance to be able to deal with it."

    I don't think God minds your mental WTFs. I don't think he minds minds verbal WTFs either.

    The Christians I respect are those who live their lives loving and accepting their fellow man; those who do not condemn different people or beliefs; those who believe killing is wrong. You strike me as one of those kinds of Christians. :-)

    Enjoy your blog! I came over from Jo's blog.

    I hope the Phillies do well in the series. Unlike a lot of people, I was pulling for them and the Rays to get in. I love the underdog and this is truly an underdog series!

    I laughed at your post about the stapler.

    Take care.

    First off...now that my Redsox are out of it...Go Phillies!

    Secondly, I think the problem here is with the insurance and not God. I think they should take out the Act of God clause...in your case, a strong enough wind could be produced in a lab....hence..God should be left out of it.

    It does give me fodder for the Hurt Locker...however...

    Very good thoughts. Personally, I'm just glad God has a sense of humor! And Go Rays! Sorry...
