There’s a great thread going on on craigslist forums at the moment. Someone asked regarding evangelical Christians if anyone has ever been asked the following and how they respond to it. The best responses are listed below:
Topic: “Have you heard the word of God yet?”
< the-thought-police > translation: would you care to partake in the ancient superstitions passed down via the worlds oldest game of telephone?
< rgambord > I just start talking to myself, and when they ask what’s going on, I say, “Well, can’t you hear it?”
< Got_all_my_tea > No – you people keep interrupting him! 😛
< creanna > I have an uncle who does… He lives in a little padded room and wears this cute jacket with cross-over arms every day. They feed him through a slot in the door.
< Good_Assternoon > Yes! Today it’s “sandwich” [picture of Pee Wee Herman]
< treii28 > Heard the word? You mean he was found???
My favorite one is “have you found God?” or “have you found Jesus?”
This of course begs the obvious response(s).
1) “I wasn’t aware he was lost.” or “Why? did you Christians go and lose him AGAIN???”
2) “I didn’t know it was my turn to watch over him. Did he run off again?“
