We are all alike....

So I need a break from serious posts. So this is it. It's almost too short for a blog post but it's too long for a Facebook status.

I've discovered that all humans are the same. Ugandans, Rednecks, and Guatemalans.

Guatemalans have the Chicken Bus.

Rednecks have the Bass Boat

And Ugandan women have the Gomas dress (Google it)

So basically, the shinier and bigger it is... the better! Also, every culture has some form of flat fried bread. Guatemalans= Tortillas. Ugandans= Chapatas. Indians= Roti. American Indians= Frybread.

But then there are the historical stories of "God." How many cultures have a story of a great flood or creation of some sort? Some are more Biblically sound, some have strayed severely. But it tells me that all have had a chance to know God at some point. So Romans 1:18-23 doesn't lie when it says...

"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles."

But just because they knew at one point, if they have gone astray and even lost the Biblical stories, shouldn't we be willing to spend our lives going to the ends of the earth to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ?! See I think that whole "Tower of Babel" thing had a profound effect on this. So not everyone has heard about Jesus yet.

God created all of the peoples different and unique, but really we are really alike in many ways. But even if they had it (the Truth) and lost it... we shouldn't throw in the towel and say "to bad, so sad, I'm a believer and you are not."

So that's what I think about colorful school buses, shiny/poofy dresses, and boats that glisten like the sun..... and Jesus.
