Who is the Hunter? Who is the Hunted?

by Steve Ray on May 24, 2017

Bible Riddle #1:  The hunter was killed, the prey were set free, the water was the lock and the rod was the key. Who was the hunter?

Bible Riddle #2:
It walked on earth,
It talked on earth,
on earth it knew no sin.
Its not in hell,
Its not on earth
And heaven won’t let it in.

(if you give up, visit Psalm 136:10-15 and Numbers 22:28)

Cute Joke: Bad Starts that End Good

by Steve Ray on May 4, 2017

Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company’s Christmas party.  He didn’t even remember how he got home from the party. His head is pounding.

Jack had to force himself to open his eyes. The first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them is a single red rose!

Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He takes the aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror.

Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick. “Honey, breakfast is on the stove. I’ve gone to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian”

He stumbles to the kitchen. There is hot breakfast, coffee and the morning paper.

His son is sitting at the table eating. Jack asks, “Son, what happened last night?”

“Well, you came home after 3 AM, drunk out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, then you puked in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”

Confused, Jack asked his son, “So why did your mother leave me a rose and a love note, and put breakfast is on the table for me?”

His son replies, “Oh THAT! Mom dragged you into the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, “Leave me alone, lady, I’m married!”

Broken Coffee Table…$239.99
Hot Breakfast…$4.20
Two aspirins…38 cents
Saying the right thing, at the right time…Priceless

“Ecumenical” Bible Studies

February 12, 2017

Without a teaching authority or the tradition of the historic Church, this cartoon shows what many Bible studies are really like.
