    there were times that i wanted to pick two of the answers at the same time but the boring traditionalist in me could not bring myself to take more than was given. great quiz. think i scored a 12 but since i had to take my shoes off to count it got a little hazy.

    Lol!!! Literally. Thanks for making me laugh! It’s quite disturbing how loosely Christianity is being taken. Sort of like a free-for-all choose your own way type of belief. What would Paul say? I really would like to know what kind of things he would be writing about these days. 🙂 praise God for Holy Spirit and discernment!

        Let’s listen to what JESUS has to say, since JESUS is…..

        The Star of The Show

        Jesus calls us to Himself
        When The Show begins
        We’re infants – so He humors us
        It’s “Rocky and His Friends”

        Like a little squirrel dressed up
        As a flying superhero
        We give ourselves The Title
        And zoom around the atmosphere Oh!

        I have come to save the day!
        We proclaim with a big smile
        And Jesus is my co-pilot
        So I’m always on top of the pile

        God our Father loves his children
        He is patient as we grow
        So we take another step
        It’s “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show”

        As we journey with The Moose
        Faithfully by our side
        We get a revelation
        We have to swallow our pride

        “He must become greater”
        He really is The Star
        “I must become less,” but still
        With Him I’ll travel far

        “You must follow me,” says Jesus
        In His eyes I see a twinkle
        He is not MY friend I am HIS
        Jesus is The Star – like Bullwinkle

      Lets start thinking about what would JESUS say !

      Poem – Looking forward (Rocky)

      Jesus never calls us out
      For what we used to be.
      His voice is so much greater
      Than paul the Pharisee.

      “You are Simon son of John”
      Said Jesus, without elaboration.
      No mention of a cloudy past
      No hint of condemnation.

      No accusation against the brothers
      No comments dark and obscure,
      Writing to the Church in Corinth
      “that is what some of you were.”

      Not the voice of the accuser,
      Boss Paul the Pharisee,
      Telling the redeemed people of God
      About what they used to be.

      Jesus never said right is wrong,
      He never said wrong is right.
      He came so we can turn from darkness
      And into His glorious light.

      “Neither do I condemn you” said Jesus,
      To a woman entrapped by dogs.
      The game the dogs play is the same today,
      Except now they do it on blogs.

      “Go, and sin no more” said Jesus,
      Don’t relive that history.
      Look forward, not back, don’t dwell on your past.
      “You will be called” Rocky.

      Looking forward – Chapter 2

      “I am he who searches hearts and minds”
      says the Risen Jesus Christ
      “Repent and do what you did at first”
      Don’t be lazy since He paid the price

      Yes, Jesus sees our sins today
      Don’t think that He is blind
      But the words of paul the Pharisee
      Will put you in a bind

      Jesus washed away your sins
      Don’t listen to paul the accuser
      paul abandoned the Church in Corinth
      And then paul became an abuser

      When you put your trust in Jesus
      Yes, your stains were white as snow
      You didn’t need to wear a Scarlet Letter
      Everywhere you go

      “I will repay each of you
      According to your deeds”
      This is Jesus speaking to The Church
      Not a business selling felt needs

      For “those who claim to be apostles”
      Jesus said they must be “tested”
      Priscilla, Aquila, and Apollos
      Persevered and were not bested

      They exposed the false teachings
      Of paul the Pharisee
      So the Church in Ephesus rejected paul
      And had a chance to be free

      Bibliography
      All quotes in “Chapter 2” are the words of Jesus, in Revelation Chapter 2

    I think this is what should set the boundries –

    The message of The 11 (“The narrow gate”)

    “The eleven disciples went to Galilee”
    “Where Jesus had told them to go”
    They heard His voice and obeyed His will
    Despite uncertainty down below

    Jesus spoke to them at length
    He wasn’t really a Tweeter
    Only 3 of them wrote Scripture
    Matthew John and Peter

    “Feed my sheep” said Jesus, for though
    “Heaven and earth will pass away”
    I have the words of eternal life and
    “My words will never pass away”

    “Enter through the narrow gate”
    The voice of Jesus through the eleven
    Believe in Jesus “through their message”
    And “eat from the tree of life” in heaven

    Jesus commissioned the eleven
    With “everything I have commanded you”
    “Teaching THEM to obey” Jesus
    And “THEM” means me and you !

    “The command given by our Lord and Savior”
    Is not a Pharisee speaking alone
    It came rather “through your apostles”
    Matthew Peter and John

    If a Pharisee boasts proudly
    Those men added nothing to my message
    He doesn’t speak for Jesus
    His words are nothing more than garbage

    Bibliography
    All “quotes” in “quotation marks” are from the writings of the Apostles Matthew John and Peter in the Bible, mostly the “Red Letter” words of Jesus. [Matthew, John, Revelation, 2 Peter – NIV]
