Should people pretend to be God in plays or videos?





ELIZABETH WRITES: How do you feel about God or Jesus representations? Like the ones BlimeyCow do in their videos to be sarcastic? I was just wondering what you guys thought about that subject. I know some people who consider it un-Christian and some who consider it completely harmless.

  • To me, it depends on what’s happening. If I’m watching a movie about Jesus, I’d say it’s perfectly fine, since it helps me get a better picture of him. And even if the movie is Biblically incorrect, it gives me something to look into more.

    If the portrayal of God is not being used for teaching purposes, I don’t think it’s necessarily bad. BlimeyCow is there to make us laugh, and God created laughter. He loves it when his children laugh at things that are genuinely (and appropriately) funny. Now, if someone was taking God and portraying him as something that’s he’s not with the purpose of making God look bad, I’d probably have to object.

    I think it all comes down to what your own convictions are, what’s disturbing to your own spiritual growth, and what’s acceptable and helps you understand God better. Hope that helps! =)

    [[ On a side note, under the DQ the site says there’s 17 comments, when down here in the comment section, there’s none yet. Anyone else having this problem? ]]

    • Cassie

      Yup, I’m having that problem too! Just Disqus boosting it’s ego or something, I think. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Jadon Lovell

      ya Im having that problem too. Kinda weird

    • Jadon Lovell

      And I completely agree with your explanation. ^^^

    • Martial Artist

      Your comment says it all. Nothing more I need to say. :) And yes, mine says 17 comments too, but there are only like ten on here right now. Weird.

      • Jadon Lovell

        Oh now it says 7 so it right now

    • Brilliant answer, Gabrielle!
      (Sorry, no pun:)

    • Becca<3

      Fabulous answer:) I agree with all of that; you made some really great points=) what’s interesting to me is that the question is kind of asking “should Jesus be portrayed by someone who isn’t Jesus?” But really, we are all Christ’s representatives. If we act sinfully, than we represent Jesus no better then the youtuber making fun of God (not referring to BlimeyCow though;) We are commanded to portray God’s character and show His love through our own actions:) Idk if anyone else got that interpretation, but that may just be me:) Oh yeah on mine the comments say 7;)

      • Yeah, that’s awesome! I love the part you wrote about us being Jesus’s representatives. I hadn’t thought about that, but it’s exactly what we are.

    • Agreed! :)
      If you are picking on God then NO, don’t do it. But when you are doing it to honor God, and tell people about God, then it’s okay. :)
      Great answer @prayerwrrior:disqus :)

    • Great comment!

      Yeah the comment number is usually wrong to begin with. I don’t know if it only does that on TheRebelution or not. It’s definitely a Disqus problem, not just you.

    • Gabrielle

      Hello Gabrielle S. !!! This totally off topic, but @Christopher 164 asked me to tell you about his giveaway : (http://christopher164.weebly.c… random-thoughts-three-reasons-why-you-should-sing-hallelujah)! A download with 17 easter parodies!

  • Julia

    I think it depends what the motive behind the representation is. If it is obviously a joke (Blimey Cow! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) I think it’s fine. I guess some people don’t always understand when someone is being sarcastic (a problem I often have).

  • Yeah! I totally full-heartedly agree with Gabrielle S. on this one. She nailed it, right on!

  • Yeahhh um well I’d give my input but it looks like @prayerwrrior:disqus has already done that for me. Nice job, girl! <3

    • alana

      I agree with @Gabrielle S. as well.

    • Thank you, thank you. *bows*

      • Josiah J.

        How humble… lol! :)

        • Just one of my many charms. ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Josiah J.

            Haha I wish I were less charming now. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Josiah J.

    I think, I agree with @Gabrielle S.:disqus

    Not to hijack the thread: How do I send a personal message or e-mail to Brett?

    • At the very top of this page, it should say “contact us”. On that page, you can put your name, subject, and message. (It goes straight to them… its not published or anything.)

      • Josiah J.

        Thank you! :)

    • GodsThespian

      And why would you want to contact Brett????
      I’m incurably curious :) If you don’t wanna answer it’s okay and I totally understand :)

      • Josiah J.

        I was just letting him know that as the rebelution movement goes international, he will need to be aware of possible cultural misunderstandings on the reb.

        I was also letting him know that I am an MK (missionary kid),
        overseas.

        Are your curiosities thwarted or did I just make you more curios? lol! :)

        • GodsThespian

          What do you think is different for you, being an MK?
          So yes, you did make me more curious, but now about a different subject!

          • Josiah J.

            Culture would be the biggest difference.
            My parents are amazing ,of course.
            My relatives are also pretty cool.

            Very little peer pressure, if you haven’t learned the language.
            It is a miss conception that MKs are always bi-lingual (I’m not) ,but I am working on learning Spanish and Guarani, both are the national languages of Paraguay.

            I am/was home schooled (I am graduated from 12th grade).
            I would say I am more equipped to defend my faith than most Americans that grow up in an average church environment.

            Almost all of the same temptations are here as in the U.S.
            I fail miserably and get back up and fail again, just like anyone could.

            All I want is to grow closer in my walk with God, day by day, step by step.

            I am but a little dirt clod that God has made pure and holy though the death of His Son, Jesus. He has washed me clean and chooses to use for His glory, what an awesome God we serve!

          • GodsThespian

            Interesting, interesting…

          • Josiah J.

            Mostly, the culture is different.

            Growing up in a missionary family has been awesome.
            Homeschooling is, in my opinion, far more advantageous
            than other forms of schooling.

            I don’t know, I would say there isn’t that much of a difference.
            Probably a whole lot more peer pressure in the U. S.

            I have had been able to learn some apologetics.

            I am not sure what growing up in the U. S. is like, so I am
            not sure how to compare the two. :)

  • Hope Daniel

    I think that playing as Him is ok just as long as they play Him correctly.(And it helps to teach little kids an idea of what his life was like) AS for BlimeyCow I think he means well and just to be funny….but I’ve seen movies where somone is playing as God or Jesus and is purposly ridiculing and clearly mocking our LORD and making Christianity look like a joke. Then that is not ok. (Just my opinion people)

    • Nick

      Just saying, if you ever pick out a Biblical movie for kids, at all costs, AVOID DONKEY OLLIE. IT IS THE MOST WRONGLY “BIBLICAL” MOVIE IN EXISTENCE. Basically, Donkey Ollie is: Moses, Joseph, Balem’s donkey, the brother of a bunch of thieves, the donkey who carried Jesus into Jerusalem a week before he was crucified, all in ONE STINKING EPISODE. Okay, maybe I exaggerated a little bit. He’s not moses, and he’s not Balem’s donkey. But he is joseph, oh and I forgot. He get’s put in a colosseum to get devoured by wild animals. I can’t speak for everyone else, but if I were you, AVOID DONKEY OLLIE

      • GodsThespian

        Oh, wow… Sounds interesting!

        • Nick

          DO NOT WATCH. WILL POISON YOU’RE KID’S MINDS (if you’re a teen without kids, ignore that) ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            Yeah, I’m a teen… ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Nick

            Lol nevermind then. Although I tend to mind my own business, I seriously discriminate against Donkey Ollie

          • GodsThespian

            Hey, new pic, right? I like it :)

      • Hope Daniel

        hahaha oh my goodness. I thought I and my siblings were the only ones who had to suffer thru that movie. haha. years ago when i was little my foster mom made me watch that. it was horrible.

  • Seth Yoder

    @Gabriel S pretty much summed it up! :) If the actor is portraying accurate qualities of God, and is using them to glorify God, then I think it’s perfectly fine for someone to play God in a movie, play, or the like. When Jordan in Blimey Cow plays God, he often clearly portrays what God ISNT, and in so doing Glorifies Him and makes us aware of OUR shortcomings. Sometimes sarcasm is the most effective way of portraying the truth. :)

    • Amen about sarcasm! I love sarcasm! :)

  • Karl Jacob

    I don’t really have a problem with people portraying God, as long as it’s respectful. It should not make God seem to be something He’s not (exaggeration or things like that aren’t necessarily bad). Also, there are some people’s portrayals of God in which they “put words in His mouth,” and that’s not good.

  • Elizabeth Marie

    Okay… so I had no idea who or what BlimeyCow was. Just got done watching the Ten Commandments of Social Media Etiquette! Bahaha… I laughed so hard!

    So back to the DQ: someone playing GOD in a movie, play, or even GOD’s voice on audio is fine as long as they are portraying GOD in the right way (true to His Biblical character).

    My “beef” is actually with who is usually chosen to play GOD or especially JESUS in most Biblical films. I know that depending on the congregation in your church… you might not be able to find a more Jewish looking JESUS, but when it comes to big budget films… come on! Where are the middle eastern or “Jewish looking” actors? I guess I just think we should be trying to create the best or truest representation we possibly can. The blond and brunette “Caucasian JESUS” needs to go! They seem to find plenty of Jewish looking people to play in the background but the lead roles are always the same. Does anyone else see this?

    And what about GOD or JESUS paintings? I personally don’t care for pictures of JESUS… I like using quotes from JESUS or passages of Scripture as decor. What about you guys?

    • Morally, I don’t think there is a problem with portraying Jesus with an actor in a movie. Personally though, you are SO right! I am so tired of a white, blonde, blue eyed, American Jesus (also usually middle class and Republican, but those are optional). All VBS posters and children’s ministry pictures of Jesus I’ve ever seen portray Him as exactly that a fair, American Jesus.

      How receptive do you think the Jews would have been to a white dude showing up in the synagogue? I mean, seriously, guys, what are we thinking?

      • Dude I totally agree! Recently when I was sick, I watched a movie on Netflix that was a narrator reading the Gospel of John and actors acting it out. (That was a horribly unfancy sentence. But you get the point, right?)
        Anyways, it was so well done, and Jesus didn’t look American! He looked ethnic! I was shocked. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Well, that’s impressive. I’m glad to know there are at least some movies out there that portray that correctly! And yes, I get the point of the sentence! I’m not great with fancy sentences either!

          Man, Netflix is nice when you’re sick!

        • Elizabeth Marie

          What was the name of this “rare phenomenon” on Netflix? I must know! Glad to hear someone’s making an effort! Even on “The Passion of the Christ” Peter looked more ethnic than Jesus…

          • Its actually called The Gospel of John, and it comes in New International Version or King James Version. I really like it!
            I’ve never seen The Passion of the Christ. I don’t have the guts. I watched Son of God and sobbed the entire twenety minutes of the betrayal/beating/crucifixion scene. I probably couldn’t handle The Passion. (I do know, however, that seeing what our Savior went through is really important!)

          • Nathanael B.

            Amen!

          • Nick

            Brooklyn, I would recommend watching The Encounter, if you like Jesus movies. I won’t lie, it does have a white, blue eyed, American Jesus, but it’s a REALLY good movie. There’s also a second one, but I forget what it’s called

          • Yes! Although it does have, as you said, a white, blue-eyed, definitely American Jesus, it was a great movie. The second one is called “Encounter: Paradise Lost”.

          • Thanks for the recommendation! I’ll check it out!

          • I definately understand where you’re coming from with not wanting to watch The Passion, but if you do muster up the courage to watch it, you won’t regret it :)

          • Elizabeth Marie

            Thanks! I’ll definitely have to check it out! …And don’t worry about not having seen “The Passion…”. It only capitalizes on the physical side of what happened. In all reality it was much, much worse than what that particular movie portrays! We can’t even fathom the “spiritual agony”… the feeling of being forsaken by GOD can’t be shown on film!

      • Elizabeth Marie

        I know, right?!?!

      • GodsThespian

        “Usually middle class and Rebublican”… I laughed so hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Yeah, I’m afraid that’s a personal pet peeve of mine. I even wrote a blog post about it combined with a few other similar things, it gets me so frustrated!

          • GodsThespian

            Can you post the link? I get pretty frustrated with the way people always portray Jesus as a white, girly pansy too :)

          • http://gracedidmuchmoreabound.blogspot.com/2015/03/the-political-jesus.html

            I got a little more frustrated for that post than I do normally. I wrote in the (gasp) anger of the moment, so pardon me if I’m too passionate. Actually, you know what, I wasn’t too passionate. Forget that!

          • GodsThespian

            Thanks! I like it :)

          • Why, thank you very much!

          • GodsThespian

            You’re welcome!

      • Mykaela

        I also do not like how they almost ALWAYS portray Jesus Christ as effeminate and with long hair…this is opposite of what God clearly states in His Word! As if Jesus himself would violate that! :( Get. It. Right.

    • Seth Yoder

      Yes I agree! I think there’s a movie where the voice of God is played by a TWELVE-YEAR OLD boy!!! That’s just wrong.

      • Josh A

        I heard about that too. =/

      • Elizabeth Marie

        Seriously? Wow! Has it really come to that? Or was it some sort of children’s movie? Had his voice changed already? I hope so!

        • Seth Yoder

          I really don’t know any details, but no, it is not a children’s movie.

    • Nick

      Yeah, I’ve seen a lot of pictures on walls, in churches, and places like that, about how Jesus was, and no disrespect intended here, but he is always white. He lived in ISRAEL for pete’s sake! I mean, how fair can a guy’s skin get when he lives in that part of the world? Another thing that boogies me is that He always looks frail, weak, and ashamed. I think that with all the work people had to do back then, and especially considering him being a carpenter, he would be well muscled, and being God, proud to die for his people. I just don’t get it.
      Sorry I haven’t checked in in a couple months, I haven’t had time, and I forgot my username.

      • GodsThespian

        Well, you almost got a welcome from me! I saw a name I didn’t recognize and thought you were new :)
        I know, we portray Jesus all wrong…

      • Heather C.

        Yep, I agree that he could be portrayed as a slightly more realistic character with less meek and mild and more zeal. Perhaps we could get rid of the stereotype beard, too. I feel like he needs to be portrayed as more of a regular person from that era. However, I just visited Israel and the Jewish people there aren’t actually that different from normal caucasians. I don’t know if that’s what Jews looked like in Jesus’ time time though, because the people I saw were mostly returned from Europe, and likely not all pure Jews.
        If Jesus is represented well, and the movie/play helps bring the Bible to life, then it’s fine to have someone play Him.

      • Elizabeth Marie

        I agree… although the “frail and weak” acting is probably the only way to show the agony of dying on a cross… and of course we’ll never know the agony of “becoming sin for us” and being forsaken by GOD.

  • Scarlet Pimpernel

    I think it first of depends on what you’re doing. If it’s as a joke, like to just to be stupid, then probably not. There’s plenty of other thing s to joke about, and I don’t think God should be. If you’re doing an actual religious film, video or play, then I think it’s perfectly fine. I’m doing an Easter drama at my church and my cousin will be playing Jesus. And since he’s doing it to help serve the church, not to joke around, I think it’s fine. As long as you don’t think you’re actually God. ;P

    • GodsThespian

      Yo! I love your name :)
      Have you seen the movie that has Ian McKellen (Gandalf from LOTR) as Chauvelin? It’s awesome! Chauvelin and Sir Percy are impeccably cast ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Scarlet Pimpernel

        No, but I could totally see him as Chauvelin. He’d be great!

        • GodsThespian

          He is creepily great!

  • I think its totally fine because of the simple fact that we should be able to discern whether or not it is really God. There’s nothing wrong with trying to give a representation as long as we’re still honoring God. Jesus gave parables of God and us so we could understand what he was trying to say, representations of God are basically the same thing. At the same time, its possible dishonor him through doing this (by making the representation use bad language, behavior etc.) but MOST of the people who would be trying to portray God probably wouldn’t do that.

    • tmselden

      While I like the credit you give to believers on their ability to discern, not all are discerning. Discernment is something given to the mature that have been trained.

      Hebrews 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

  • tmselden

    Excellent question. I’ve wondered about that when I see new Jesus films come out. The motives might have good intentions, but I have yet to see the life of Christ depicted accurately with scripture. Bill O’Reillys new “Killing Jesus” is an example. I know that it was not meant to be a spiritual film, but many people watched it with no knowledge of scripture. Just the L,V,S rating was enough for us to turn it off. We need to be real careful in trying to portray Christ. The only accurate, and I think the best portrayal of Jesus, is “The Book of John.” It follows scripture verbatim. And I guess we should ask ourselves while maybe permissible to watch, is it beneficial.

  • Patrick Williamson

    if the person is saying truths about God it is fine, but if they are saying lies on purpose or making God look bad then thats where its bad

  • It looks like most of us have a Rebelution hangover today. Everyone’s repented of yesterday’s offense and declared a Rebelution fast!

    • Josh A

      IKR?

    • Nathanael B.

      yes, sure seems like it!

    • GodsThespian

      I haven’t! But I feel really sorry for Brett… how many comments did it end up being?

      • I believe it was 1, 285!

        • GodsThespian

          Wow…
          Brett, I apologize for the comments I contributed to that thread!

          • He said himself be careful of the retribution! Just saying…

          • GodsThespian

            True! I forgot about that… *evil smile*

          • I’m not sure I can picture you pulling off the evil smile. I don’t if it’s the profile picture of a flower, a cross, and sunlight, or just you seem like a cheerful person, but I just can’t picture that!

          • GodsThespian

            Oh, you should see me portraying Satan… *Reconsiders* Okay, you shouldn’t; I don’t think I do a very good job. But still, you would see that I can try to be evil!
            I’ve been told by directors that I have a “motherly face,” whatever that means…

          • That sounds like probably a compliment. Probably, not really sure…

            I’m not really sure how to encourage you. “I think you’d make a very good Satan” just seems offensive…

          • GodsThespian

            It mean I get the boring roles, really… :(
            Seriously, unless you’ve ever acted an evil role, you have no idea how fun it is! It’s like you can express emotions you’re never supposed to show, because you’re this different person!

          • Well, I’m certainly no actor, so I wouldn’t know. I’ll take your word for, although that sounds really cool!

          • GodsThespian

            It is SO COOL! If you ever get a chance to act, you totally have to take it!

          • I’ll keep that in mind!

          • GodsThespian

            ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Seth Yoder

            Our homeschool group did “The Hiding Place.” That was a BLAST! I was Kaptyn with the Gestapo and had to slap “Corrie Ten Boom.” Lol

          • GodsThespian

            Oh wow, that had to be fun!

          • It sounds kinda bad… But everyone loves to play Satan. Well, almost everyone. Not because they like him, but because the Satan parts can be the most fun.
            What do you mean by boring roles?

          • GodsThespian

            Boring roles: The “everything’s perfect” roles where you’re supposed to look like you’re happy with life and everything’s rosy. Like the mom in “The Gift”… Yes, she’s homeless but she looks at everything in rose-colored glasses, ya know? Now, if I ever get to be the momin Gero…

          • Which was about 1,280… maybe that was a slight exaggeration!

          • GodsThespian

            haha

    • Ethan H.

      Defiantly!!!! I’m still tired from yesterday…

  • Nathanael B.

    Hey guys, would you mind praying for one of my friends? They are having a hard time choosing a religion to follow.

    • Absolutely! Can I have a first name? If not, I understand, I just always prefer a name!

      • Nathanael B.

        Um…I don’t think she’ll mind. Her name’s Ashley. Thank you so much!

        • Thanks! I’ll be praying for her!

          • Nathanael B.

            Thanks! God bless!

        • GodsThespian

          Funny thing, I have a friend named Ashley, too, and she sounds kinda similar… she doesn’t happen to be a long-distance friend, does she?

          • Nathanael B.

            nope

    • GodsThespian

      Totally! I’ll be praying for Ashley :)

      • Nathanael B.

        Thanks, I really appreciate that :)

        • GodsThespian

          You’re welcome :)

      Praying :)

    • Josiah J.

      Prayed.

    • Cassie

      I’ll be praying Nathanael! Hey just a thought – would it be helpful if you reminded them that Christianity isn’t about a religion, it’s about a relationship with God, which is something no other religion can offer? I’ll also be praying they chose based on truth, not of whatever feels nicest.

  • GodsThespian

    I think I’m in an interesting situation to address this from, because my mime team does this all the time. Actually, I’m hard-pressed to think of a “Intentionally Christian” song that doesn’t have God or Jesus.
    The only problem I have with some times that Jesus is portrayed is that we sometimes turn Him into what one book called “The Pansy Jesus,” where Jesus is this meek, mild guy who never causes trouble. That gets my temper up!
    But otherwise, I think it’s a unique privilege to portray God on stage or in a movie. Obviously, it is important to keep you (as an actor) and your character (God) separate, but I don’t think that’s even a question here :)

  • Benji H.

    Okay sorry to change the subject but I have a query. Would it be ok to make something toa little more fun for younger(or older) people,from the bible?

    • GodsThespian

      Do you mean like how Veggietales took some Bible stories then changed them? (e.g. Josh And The Big Wall, Esther, Dave and the Giant Pickle, etc.)

      • Benji H.

        Sort of like that.

        • GodsThespian

          I think that’s okay… But I never really thought about it much, either.

  • Benji H.

    Such as I am building a lego scene of jesus coming back. Im using my chicken lego guy as the angel and my hot dog guy has a hot dog stand. Is that wrong or is it fine? I just dont wanna offend jesus or look disgraceful

    • Ethan H.

      I’m not sure that would be respectful. I don’t know for sure though.

      • Benji H.

        Ok well thanks=)

    • GodsThespian

      Hmmm… The hot-dog-guy seems like something that would really be there. The chicken guy (who sounds super-cool, BTW)… I don’t know. Maybe you could take it out? I dunno.
      I think Lego creations are like any other form of artwork. I draw things when I’m bored, and the Cross is a major part of what I do. I might mess up, or scratch out what I’m doing, but I don’t think it’s disrespectful that I’m scratching out my drawing of a Cross. Or I might draw something where Jesus looks pretty dorky (I’m terrible at drawing people), but I don’t think that He looks at that and says, “Laura didn’t draw me very well. I am offended.”
      You know what I’m trying to say? I don’t want to come across wrong…

      • Ethan H.

        Yeah. I think it’s really a heat issue. I you are TRYING to make Him look bad, that is clearly sin. But we are humans, and we make mistakes.

        • GodsThespian

          *calls grammar police* Ethan H has now messed up again — will you haul him away this time? I think he’s an unrepentant reprobate!
          I think that’s the heart issue – are we TRYING to make Him look bad, or are we trying to do something honoring?

          • Ethan H.

            Hey, I am typing as fast as I can on my phone. What do you expect?

          • GodsThespian

            On your phone?! Get on a real computer! Otherwise the phone company people will get mad because you’re tying up all their data!
            As your mother, am I paying for this data usage?

          • Ethan H.

            I am on wifi, in bed. :) we have a computer!
            and no, I pay for my phone and data. :)

          • GodsThespian

            Whew, that’s a load off my mind! I have a feeling that my eight-hour-a-week, minimum-wage job wouldn’t do well with your phone bill on it :)

          • Ethan H.

            Well…we use consumer cellular. They are quite a heap cheaper than most others. So, that’s partly why I can afford it. And I buy old phones.

          • GodsThespian

            Mmm, okay. STUPID QUESTION: What is consumer cellular?

          • Ethan H.

            Not a stupid question. :)
            They are a cell service provider that piggybacks on ATT. No contracts, and much less expensive.

          • GodsThespian

            Ohhh, I know who they are!

          • Ethan H.

            Okay!!

          • Ethan H.

            Hey, gotta go to sleep. :) ttyl!

          • GodsThespian

            And you’re an hour earlier than me!
            Okay, ttyl :)

          • Ethan H.

            What??? 11:30? Bye!

          • GodsThespian

            Yeah… It’s my one night where I can stay up, and I normally am awake in bed until 12:00 anyway, so I decided I’ll talk to people for a while :)

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah. Still awake.

          • GodsThespian

            Then my mom came downstairs and wasn’t so happy… :(

          • GodsThespian

            How do you like it? I’m probably getting a phone soon, when I start driving on my own… Especially if I get a job after we move.

          • Ethan H.

            Love it! It’s great. http://Www.consumercellar.com

          • GodsThespian

            Thanks :-)

      • Benji H.

        Okay thanks a lot!( He is awesome)

  • Hope Daniel

    i havent been on in awhile guys as you can clearly tell but i get tons of notifs on what you guys talk about tho it sometimes seems to clearly be off topic sometimes. (wont give out names) it would be so cool to meet you guys in person. im glad to know there are people out there with opinions and with brains…..(majority of teens i meet are discouraging and plain stupid) SO THANK YOU ALL! My faith in humanity has been restored!

    • Joseph M

      Isn’t this comment off topic?

      • Hope Daniel

        what? i cant express my greatfulness? but i see what u did there….but it had to be told. deal with it.

        • GodsThespian

          If he’s like most of us, he’s just joking :)
          We do a lot of joking around when we’re not… well, we do a lot of joking around just about all the time.
          And you can express your gratefulness whenever you want. Most of us talk off-topic like this all the time!

    • Ethan H.

      Yeah! My thoughts exactly.

      • Hope Daniel

        at least someone here agrees

        • Ethan H.

          Haha.

    • Josiah J.

      Never ask a question, and you will never get an answer.
      That is why we get off topic.

      We all make foolish choices, at times, so don’t put too much faith in us. :)

      I would love to meet any one of you on here.

      Start asking the new people you meet if they have ever heard of the rebelution. Who knows, you may find some us.

      • Haylie

        I so wish I could meet all of you! That would be very cool :)

        • Joseph M

          I wish too, even though honestly, I don’t know any of you that well.

          • We’re all brothers and sisters in Christ, so we’re not too uncommon! :))

          • Joseph M

            I guess, but even within a family, there can be huge differences. Like my youngest brother looks completely different from me, he is good at the opposite things, and we often don’t seem like part of the same family. FYI, I live in GA, USA. Just putting that out there.

          • Yeah, you’re right, but at least if I met one of you guys I wouldn’t be scared you were some random creep. ๐Ÿ˜› And haha, we live on opposite sides of the country! I’m in AZ.

          • Joseph M

            That does make sense. How’s the weather in AZ? It’s kind crazy here. Wild temp swings, severe thunderstorms and sunny days. Daffodils finishing up. I know, random question but haha.

          • Well, summer’s already starting for us. It’s supposed to be in the 80s and early 90s all week long, and from there it will only go into the 100 degree weather. We’ll probably get a couple dust storms soon, although maybe not since we already got most of the flash floods and dust storms over with.

            Sounds like you guys are getting a real springtime, though! Do you ever get snow?

          • Josh A

            Wait, really? I have cousins that live in Tuscon…I know AZ is a big state but how close are you (if you can tell me haha)?

          • Haha, your cousins live about 2 hours away from me then. Tuscon’s pretty far away!

          • Josh A

            Ok! Yeah Arizona’s a really big state – when I went out there, I thought it wouldn’t be far from Tuscon to the Grand Canyon, but it would have been like, three hours away so we couldn’t go. =/

            Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon?

          • Once or twice, when I was really little. I only remember from pictures, though!

            Did you guys go during the nice weather, or did you get blasted by Arizona heat? ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Josh A

            We went in like, February so it was only, like 80 hahaha jk. =) But it was better than Georgia weather – it can literally be raining and sunny at the same time here. =P

          • Haha you came for the nice weather! It was freezing in January and roasting in March. And it sounds like Georgia needs to make up its mind. XD

          • Josh A

            EXACTLY!!!!! And I didn’t go this year fyi, it was a few years ago. =)

            But yeah, in Georgia, we have winter, then we have 1 day of summer, then it’s a week of winter, then a week of summer, then it goes summer-winter-summer-winter for a while, then it’s summer for a week, winter for a day, then finally summer. =/

            And if you ask about spring, my answer in advance is, Spring??? What’s spring??? haha we might have 3 or 4 days of mild weather, but definitely not a whole season.

            Sorry, that was really long and probably WAY more than you asked for. =/

          • Lol, our states are opposites. Arizona has a few days of winter, a few weeks of fall, goes spring-summer-spring-summer and then hits with full blast 100 degree weather for the next 8 months!

            Georgia sounds like a fun place to live, though. Most of what I’ve heard about it is that people ride horses and have peach trees and drink sweet tea all day long, but y’know, people also say Arizona is 100% desert. XD

          • Joseph M

            Hahaha. Yeah, state stereotypes are interesting. And for the record, I’ve never picked a peach off the tree, I’ve never ridden a horse, and last time I drank sweet tea was a few months ago. But I’m a Georgian and I’m proud. :-) . Talking about weather, we just had severe thunderstorm alerts last night, and it’s sunny and in the 80s today.

          • Haha cool! Seriously, weather reports are ridiculous sometimes.

          • Josh A

            Yes! Here too – crazy thunderstorms last night, now there’s not a cloud in the sky!

          • Josh A

            Well, I hate to defeat your stereotype, but I’ve never been on a horse, seen a peach tree or drunk sweet tea. XD But most people around here enjoy sweet tea. =)

            Is it not 100% desert?? That’s all I remember hahaha. #georgian

          • GodsThespian

            Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaha! Wow… Stereotypes are so much fun!
            You’ve never drunk sweet tea? Well, you’re not missing anything. Bleh!

          • Double bleh! ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Is it really that bad? I’ve heard it’s pretty nice, thanks to all the sugar that’s dumped in it.

          • I’m just not a fan of it. Homemade sweet tea is sometimes good, though, depending on who makes it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But the store-bought kind…personally? Yuck. ๐Ÿ˜›
            That being said, dumping sugar in something isn’t enough to make me a fan of it. But that’s just me. :)

          • Well, we have desert, a ton of mountains, lots of busy cities, and *gasp* even some forests. #arizonian

          • I love sunshiny rain! :) We get the crazy “seasons” too.

          • Ethan H.

            Josh A. Lives is Georgia!!

          • Joseph M

            Wow! And I just checked his profile, and I’m in North Georgia too! In Peachtree Corners, to be exact. And no, I don’t mind. In one way, I value privacy, but in another, I don’t. Haha

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah. I mean, what could people do with info?

          • Josh A

            Well, there’s some of you that have discovered my last name. You already know that I live in N. Georgia, and I’ve described myself on here before. If I ever post a picture of myself it would NOT be hard for a…I hate to say the words but a “professional stalker” to find where I live. =/

          • Ethan H.

            Ahh. I can understand that for a female, but Josh? Do you not know anything about self defense??? ๐Ÿ˜

          • Josh A

            Hahaha now there’s another thing I’m not supposed to post on the internet about…let’s just say…..yes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Ethan H.

            Sounds better!

          • Josh A

            lol

          • Joseph M

            True. But I rarely, if ever, post pics of me anywhere. I just have something against photos of myself. I don’t know why.

          • Josh A

            I get it! I mean, most of us don’t have pics of ourselves on here either. =)

          • Josh A

            “Josh A. Lives is Georgia”???? THIS IS THE GRAMMAR POLICE YOU ARE UNDER ARREST FOR USING IMPROPER GRAMMAR!!!! jk

          • Joseph M

            Or maybe for making a typo. :-)

          • Ethan H.

            Yes!!!

          • Ethan H.

            Okay… Josh A lives in Georgia…. Better?

          • Josh A

            Yup you’re not under arrest any more. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Ethan H.

            You must have a lot of connections to arrest me from there!

          • Josh A

            Yeah I called off the Missouri state troopers, don’t worry. XD jk

          • Ethan H.

            Ooohhh. I didn’t hear them say anything about on the radio!

          • Josh A

            Special branch of the Missouri state troopers. The Grammar Troopers. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They don’t use the normal frequencies haha jk.

          • Joseph M

            Yeah…………….of course.

          • Josh A

            =)

          • Ethan H.

            Opphhhh. Right.

          • Ethan H.

            Actually it would be the sharifs office. Or, since I’m at home, a SWAT team.

          • Josh A

            *Sherrif’s office. =) Now I’m going to have to call the spelling police….

          • Joseph M

            Oh dear.

          • Josh A

            We are SOOO off topic…and I have to go anyway…@Ethan__H:disqus @josephmao:disqus talk to y’all later! =D

          • Joseph M

            Bye

          • Ethan H.

            Yes… A mental picture…Ethan getting arrested by the grammar police, getting released only to be recaptured by the spelling office…

          • Joseph M

            Hahahahahahaha. What does he do wrong next?

          • Ethan H.

            Let’s think of something…

          • Joseph M

            Punctuation police?

          • Ethan H.

            Ooohhh yes?

          • Joseph M

            You, need: more error’s in one sentence “

          • Ethan H.

            Oh’. Wow”! Thats’ (close) !

          • Joseph M

            Now we”re both, fugitives!

          • Ethan H.

            Just wait ’till Josh. A. Get’s back”!!

          • Josh A

            Grrrrrrr…. =)

          • Ethan H.

            Muhahahaha!

          • Joseph M

            Who knew that making mistakes could be so much fun?

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah!!

          • Josh A

            Hahaha yup! XD

          • Ethan H.

            Wat? For thet?

          • Josh A

            Blarg make it stoopppppp…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ jk

            g2g ttyl bye! =)

          • Ethan H.

            Hahaha. Okay.

          • *Not my conversation, I know*
            So “g2g” and “ttyl” qualify as proper spelling? Your standards are off somewhere…

          • Josh A

            Haha you’re fine…and yeahhhh you have a point there. =P

          • “yeahhhh”… you seriously keep slipping up…

          • Josh A

            Wut ar yew talkin abowt? muh speling iss purfect!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Haha!!! You “sound” like you’re from Texas, not Georgia…

          • Ethan H.

            I just took a screenshot of that…awesome.

          • Josh A

            Haha. =)

          • GodsThespian

            Great thinking! Now if we ever need leverage… Muahahahahaha!

          • Ethan H.

            Exactly!

          • GodsThespian

            Oh wow, y’all (And no, I don’t normally say “y’all” in person) are making me laugh really hard right now…

          • Josh A

            What’s wrong with y’all????? *hurt expression* ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            I was just telling them… I actually was realizing that I do say “y’all,” when I’m at work… I’m supposed to call customers “sir” or “ma’am” so I just lapse into Southern talk, which then includes “y’all”. I realized I had it bad when I answered the phone today and told my mom “I don’t really know where y’all are right now….”

          • Ethan H.

            Y’all is awesome! And y’all are awesome!

          • GodsThespian

            Hehe :)

          • Josh A

            Haha that’s funny, and you don’t even live in the south. XD hey jc, where do you work?

          • GodsThespian

            I did live in SouthEast Kentucky for four years… but no, I’m not in the South anymore. I work at an interesting mix of a tourist store and a grocery store… it’s called a “Country Store,” whatever that means… Basically, one half is discounted groceries (we buy overstock from other stores and sell it at lower prices) and the other half is a tourist-trap area :) Knick-knacks, etc.
            Funny fact: I’ve had tourists ask me what it’s like to be Amish (while I’m wearing a T-shirt and jeans…)

          • Ethan H.

            Shelters?

          • GodsThespian

            Nah, it’s just an interesting business model. They buy overstock from other stores at a discounted rate, then mark them up some and sell them, normally for about half of normal retail price (what you would pay for it at Walmart).
            Cause we buy overstock, we get a lot of interesting things that didn’t work out when everyone else tried to sell them. I think once we had “Caramel Potato Chips”; dude, they were weird! The half that the locals go to is laid out like a grocery store, it’s just much lower prices (therefore lots of people go there!). I think this answers your question…

          • Ethan H.

            Lol. Right. We have a store near us that does the excavation thing; near an Amish community. They are called Shetlers. :)

          • GodsThespian

            I didn’t know there are Amish in MO! Cool :) So if I move there I’ll still have a bit of home :)

          • Ethan H.

            Well….Seymour, Missouri. About 4 hours form KC. Also there are a few in Osceola, MO.

          • Ethan H.

            oops, Shetlers.

          • GodsThespian

            Shetlers? Don’t know that name… Oh, the store? No… it was started by a guy from around here; there are two stores in existence.

          • Ethan H.

            Wow! Shetlers is local to us as well; and they have two stores!

          • GodsThespian

            What can I say? I did my research and found out! Not really…
            Does your store serve ice cream?! Mine does… it is AWESOME!

          • Ethan H.

            They sell ice cream…

          • GodsThespian

            WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!

          • Ethan H.

            What do you mean WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

          • GodsThespian

            I mean “how is this possible?”

          • Ethan H.

            What was this all about? I don’t remember. :)

          • GodsThespian

            Shetlers and my store being so similar… This is freaky!

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah! It is amazingly similar….

          • GodsThespian

            If I got to work there it would be amazing! :-)

          • GodsThespian

            Don’t underestimate him, son!

          • Josh A

            What part of GA do you live in (if you’re allowed to say =) )?

          • Joseph M

            Peachtree Corners. You?

          • Josh A

            Oh man we’re close! I’m actually not allowed to say specifically, but I live in North GA too – we’re REALLY close!!!! Tops 1 hour apart.

          • Ethan H.

            I told ya!!!

          • Joseph M

            For some reason, this is mindblowing. I mean, it should make sense, since there are some of us all over the US.

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah!

          • I go to Stone Mountain once or twice a year, which I guess is pretty close to y’all. :)

          • Josh A

            Hey! I’ve been there numerous times! It’s about an hour away as well! =D You should tell me when you’re going there next. XD jk what are the chances that we’d see each other, one in 1,000,000,000? haha

          • Ethan H.

            I’ve been there once; what’s the chance that I saw you there?!? It was a day several years ago when the cable car was broken…

          • Joseph M

            We always hike up Stone Mountain. Only used the cable car once. Ever.

          • Ethan H.

            That’d be fun! We only had a couple hours there. :)

          • Josh A

            Hmmm let’s see….one in…10 million???? haha idk

          • Ethan H.

            Or more!

          • Cool! I’ve been in the area many times, but I’ve only climbed the mountain twice (it’s something we do since we’re there, not the reason we go.)
            Can you imagine how weird it would be to meet in real life? I mean, we’ve seen the crazy sides of each other without ever having met. It’s an interesting thought… :)

          • Josh A

            It would be AWESOME to meet (or re-meet in Taylor B’s case haha) any of you guys!!!!

            Yeah, I’ve only been down the mountain once, I think. =) Never been up it haha.

          • Oh, yeah, lets!

          • Josh A

            You should come visit again! You could come to the D***c’s and my family’s church!

          • Well, I’m planning to move there in probably two years. So, we’ll have to meet up! Maybe sometime I’ll get to try y’all’s church. I usually attend a different one there, but ya never know! I wish I remember you a little better than I do!

          • Josh A

            Cool! Yeah, I wish I remembered you better, too!

            So how do you remember me, anyway?

          • Let’s see here. A full beard, angry eyes, about 6’8″, with a really deep voice.

          • Josh A

            Ahahahaha! Oh that’s funny! =)

          • GodsThespian

            lol :)

          • Ok, no seriously, if I remember right, you’re what, about 5’7″, dark hair, pretty enthusiastic, right? Really good on that guitar, and you played the piano too, right?

            Now don’t laugh if I slaughtered that!

          • Josh A

            Pretty close, yeah! =) I’m an inch or two taller than that, and I’m not really good at the guitar haha…but yup that’s me! =)

            Hey I g2g ttyl!

          • ok, when you get back, how do you remember me? Just out of curiosity!

          • Josh A

            You’re fairly tall (6 foot?), fairly quiet, crazy good at Foosball, you have ?two? brothers, but I don’t remember if you played any instruments…do you?

          • I play piano. not well, but I can get a tune out of it. yeah, the others you’re right on! you DO have a good memory!

          • Josh A

            Haha thanks! =)

          • “not well”… LIAR.

          • Thank you! But sadly, it’s true.

          • Well, I wonder what you think on the subject? You just don’t sound decided…

          • What I think… I think you’re a wonderful, fabulous, amazing, outstanding pianist. (Who takes from a wonderful, fabulous, amazing, outstanding teacher; just thought I’d throw that in.)

          • Thanks! You’re right about the teacher!

          • GodsThespian

            The D***c’s? Whaaaat?!
            Oh yeah, you and Taylor are best buds… :)

          • Josh A

            The D***c’s are our mutual friends. =)

          • GodsThespian

            Oh, okay… *facepalm* Should have guessed!

          • Josh A

            And we’re not really best buds, we’ve only met once. =)

          • Yeah, definitely not best buds (no offense to Josh A., but we met for like twenty minutes and three games of foosball). Not quite best bud material. Now if I were to spend an afternoon with him sometime, I’m not ruling out the possibility!

          • You rode the thing-a-ma-jig up? The last bit of the climb up is pretty scary. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

          • Josh A

            Yeah the what-ya-ma-call-it. XD

          • My ma calls it a cable car.

          • Yeah, that sounds right. :) lol

          • Joseph M

            Of all of us talking about this and are in the areaarea, I’m probably the youngest.

          • Well, I know I’m older than Josh, but other than that I don’t know. I’m also not as old as people seem to think…

          • That’s why nobody can meet in real life, is everyone knows too much about each other, it’s not safe for everyone else…

          • Lol, that sounds about right. :)

          • Look at us all! Doing hard things… hanging out on our electronic devices, having crazy conversations.

          • Haha, ikr?! Speaking of which, I need to go do school. Talk to y’all later!

            (Fyi, I don’t say y’all in real life:)

          • Josh A

            WOAH! Scary we said basically the same thing lol. TTYL! =)

          • *Conscience* JOSH A. GET OFF THE COMPUTER.

          • Josh A

            You’re one to talk… ๐Ÿ˜‰ ok bye FOR REAL this time.

          • JOSH A. GET OFF THE COMPUTER! you type on the computer.

          • Fine, I guess I speak sheltered-homeschooler lingo. Would “Josh A. get off your latest-and-greatest-iWhatever” be more applicable?

          • Ethan H.

            iWatch

          • Seriously?

          • Yes! @defyingdepravity:disqus caused a mass exodus!

          • Josh A

            Haha yeah!

          • Ethan H.

            It you should! *southern pride*

          • I don’t know why, but it just never feels right whenever I try. I always say “you guys”. But online,”y’all” is much more fun. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • “Y’all” is a wonderful word. So is “ain’t” (it’s so multi-purpose), but that’s a little too redneck for me, unless I’m just messing around.

          • Yeah, “ain’t” doesn’t make it into my vocabulary unless I’m feeling seriously goofy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Ethan H.

            You northern soul!

          • Lol, I know. Most of my dad’s side of the family live in northern Alabama and Georgia. When we have family reunions, it’s like…idk, they’re just so Southern that I wonder how I’m even related to them. XD

          • Ethan H.

            :)
            Have you looked at Revive yet?

          • Oh, I totally forgot! What’s the link?

          • revivingtheredeemed.org

          • have you checked it out yet?

          • Yep. I just didn’t sign up. You?

          • I did. Cause I just don’t have enough going on.

          • Right, you don’t have all that school work to do…

          • Well, I don’t intend to spend a huge amount of time over there, but still…

          • Uh-huh. I’ll bet you hadn’t planned to spend a lot of time over here, either.

          • True. Well, aren’t you my little conscience today?

          • Ethan H.

            That’s what he should make his username!!!

          • Ha, ha, that’s good! I like that. I’ll have to recommend that to her, if she doesn’t this herself!

          • Ethan H.

            Her? Sorry! I didn’t read the profile. :)

          • Oh, she won’t mind, I’m sure! I don’t read most people’s profiles either (or else I’d be on here til doomsday!)

          • Ethan H.

            Haha. You would, for sure! I have saved a ton of time by replying through the email. :)

          • Yeah, I know, I do that a lot too. It’s handy!

          • Honestly, thank you for the reminder! I need to remember to keep my computer time in check! That’s what good friends are for!

          • Ethan H.

            What? You didn’t like it?

            JK lol

          • Thanks! I actually had the sense to look for it after I asked. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I won’t be able to join right now, but it looks awesome!

          • Ethan H.

            That’s too bad! We’d love for you to join us when you can.

          • Thanks! My mom said I may be able to join in a couple of months. But I did look at the site, and y’all did a great job! :)

          • Ethan H.

            Cool! Maybe if Brett posts something about it on here…he started to register on revive…don’t ask how I know. :)

          • Yeah, she would probably be more okay with it if he did.
            Lol, I wouldn’t have wanted to ask if you hadn’t said anything… Isn’t it weird how that works?
            Happy Easter, btw!

          • Ethan H.

            Haha. That’s what we’re hoping! We want him to see it first. :)
            It’s complicated. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Happy Resurrection Sunday as well!

          • Ethan H.

            Hey, I was just thinking, if your parents want to know more on what information we have/how we use it or to look at the site in a test user account or something, they are more than welcome to email us! We have the email address on the front page of Revive.

          • Thanks! I’ll tell them. :)

          • Ethan H.

            Okay!

          • Abigail McCoy

            “Y’all” is awesome! I use it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And “ain’t”!!

          • Josh A

            @defyingdepravity:disqus, I actually needed to see this, because my hard thing for today is saying goodbye to you guys and actually getting some work done. XD ttyl!

          • Me, too. :( Goodbye!

          • Joy Swen

            Me to. A pile of Geomontry is calling my name!
            Talk to y’all later!

          • Point taken! See ya later!

          • Joseph M

            Umm………who said we had to be doing it full time?…………..maybe? Am I the only person here that feel we need a forum section here? These comment things are going way off topic……not like its a problem.

          • Yes! You’re right!

          • GodsThespian

            Good thinking…

          • Uh…maybe a creepy thought?

          • Haylie

            Yeah, that’s kinda weird :)

          • GodsThespian

            IKR? That would be really cool, but it could be kinda awkward depending on who it is. (I’d be thinking, “Do you remember _____ about me?”) But I think the coolness would outweigh the awkwardness.
            Oh dude, we would have inside jokes without having ever met! Weird thought…

          • Yeah, probably. But be warned, I’m very good at making situations more awkward than you might expect (at least for me, lol). XD
            Dude, yes! (Lol, #1 on the itinerary would be putting that word to proper use…and yes, I was keeping tabs on that conversation;)

          • GodsThespian

            Oh, dude, if I ever meet you we’ll be saying “dude”, like, every other word and everyone will be like “What? They’re not dudes!” I can just see it…

          • Ethan H.

            Dude.

          • GodsThespian

            lol :)

          • HA! Yes! I can imagine my parents freaking out over my having inside jokes with people I’ve never met. I try to explain some of this to them, and they’re just like, “Mm-hmm, that’s nice…(I have no idea what you’re talking about…)”
            The part in parenthesis is understood. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • Haha, same with my parents! They just don’t understand the advantages of having internet friends. ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Yes! It’s funny how with internet friends, you have to keep some information private, but at the same time, there are situations in which you can tell them more than you could tell your real-life friends. You know what I mean?

          • GodsThespian

            I know what you mean…

          • You know, it’s weird how you disappear for a couple of days and then all of a sudden I have a flood of GodsThespian responses in my inbox. :) I know you said your email gets really backed up…have you tried using the Disqus inbox? It made it so much easier for me, and now I have a manageable number of actual emails. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            Well, you’re about to get a lot more GodsThespian emails ;D
            I used it for a little while… you mean the page that covers half of your screen, or are you talking about something else? Cause that doesn’t work too well for me, personally. But it could be that you’re talking about another great invention that I’m missing out on!

          • Lol :) um…I don’t think that’s what I’m talking about. If you go to your Disqus profile or home page, there should be a button on the screen that says Inbox. It’s a page that will show you all the upvotes and replies you’ve gotten, or you can set it to just replies to make it less complicated. You can reply and upvote comments from there. I think it’s simpler and easier than using email, but if you get a LOT of replies they can disappear really quickly into the abyss.

          • GodsThespian

            Thanks, that’s really helpful!

          • Great! :)

          • Joseph M

            Yeah. I’ll actually be visiting there in the next few weeks.

          • Ethan H.

            I’ve been there once….

          • Joseph M

            Are you in the area?

          • Ethan H.

            If you call Southwest Missouri in the area, then yes. :)
            We have family in Columbus.

          • Joseph M

            Oh. That makes sense.

          • I feel so connected to y’all right now!! ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Josh A

            IKR?? =)

          • Joy Swen

            What does IRK mean?

          • Joseph M

            It stands for “I know, right?”

          • Joy Swen

            Oh, ok, thanks. My older brothers ged whe I abbreviate things. So I don’t understand the abbreviations used. :)

          • Josh A

            Well, IDK what IRK stands for, but IKR stands for I Know, Right.

            Uh, yeah what @josephmao:disqus said. *oops*

          • Joy Swen

            i meant IKR. You make me laugh

          • lol XD

          • Joy Swen

            My dad grew up out side of Atlanta. Now we live in WA though.

          • Josh A

            Wow, all the way across the country? That’s a long way!

            My dad grew up in CA then moved to Georgia. =)

          • Joy Swen

            I wish there were Rebelution pow-wows where we could all get together and hang out. I have family in CA so I’ve visited.there more times than I can count

          • Josh A

            Agreed! Actually, I think Isaiah Rodriguez is trying to pull something like that together….

          • Like a totally different website?

          • Josh A

            No, like a real-life get-together.

          • Joy Swen

            Yeah. Like a weekend where all of us went to say…a place in the Rockies and got to kniw each other in person. Something like that

          • Josh A

            Ummm…how about the appalachians???? That would be a lot closer (for me #selfish hahaha)

          • Joseph M

            If they organized one, I probably wouldn’t be there.

          • Joy Swen

            I wouldn’t be able to afford it. But the Idea sounds fun.

          • Nathanael B.

            Well, if we found a way to get everyone together, they could pool money and rent a bus. I’ve done that before, I just don’t remember how much it costs…

          • Nathanael B.

            hey, that’s cool, I live in the Rockies. their really beautiful in the summer!

          • Joy Swen

            I know. My family have traveled through them on a couple occasions.

          • There used to be conferences…the last one was in 2011, I think. (It’s where I got my Reb tshirt:)

          • I’ve wanted to go to a conference so bad. :(

          • Nathanael B.

            I think we all do…

          • Joseph M

            I hadn’t even heard of the rebelution in 2011.

          • Yeah, it seems like I’ve been a Rebelutionary longer than most of you guys…

          • Thanks, Christy, you don’t have to rub it in… :)

          • Haha! *rub, rub, rub*

            I think I just rubbed a hole in my tablet.

          • GodsThespian

            lol :)

          • Josh A

            Yeah, stinks they ended. =/

          • GodsThespian

            You have a Reb t-shirt! That would be pretty awesome :) Someday…

          • Yeah, it would be really cool if Brett started selling some online. :)

          • GodsThespian

            I would totally buy one! Or more than one… ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Brett, you see this? You should do it!

          • Yeah, “or more than one…” XD I can totally see all of us buying a dozen shirts and then wearing nothing else (as far as shirts go, that is!) for the rest of our teenage lives.
            (Hey! That’s how we could identify each other! Lol)
            But in all seriousness, that would be awesome. :)

          • GodsThespian

            I would, too!
            It would be, dude, awesome!

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah dude!

          • GodsThespian

            I don’t have anything more to say, you took the words out of my mouth!

          • Ethan H.

            Oh my dude.

          • GodsThespian

            Your dude? Who’s your dude?

          • Ethan H.

            Do you remember from the other thread????? If not, never mind. :)

          • GodsThespian

            Like “Oh my _____,” and you filled in “dude”?

          • Ethan H.

            Yep! I’m going to get some sleep. :)

          • rofl XD That is the funniest question I have ever heard!!

          • Ethan H.

            Dude. Yes.

          • Lol. ๐Ÿ˜€ Dude, you’re on late! Seems like everyone’s usually gone by now.

          • Ethan H.

            Yeah, I was having trouble going to sleep. :)

          • Yeah, me too. I started a book and I couldn’t put it down, so I just finished it. I think I finally went to bed around two, haha. :)

          • Dude, yes!
            Gah! I can’t do it. Dude, it feels so wrong. XD

          • GodsThespian

            Totally…

          • Nathanael B.

            Yes, definitely!

          • Joseph M

            That would be interesting.

          • Abigail McCoy

            An old, sweet song
            Keeps Georgia on
            My mind

          • My grandma lives in WA, and we visit her nearly every year! She’s in a small town close to Spokane.

          • Joy Swen

            Cool! I’m on the other side of the cascades in a subberb of Seattle.

          • Awesome! So is your family into the whole football thing up there? ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Joy Swen

            Nope. Not a bit. I couldn’t care less. But a couple of my friends are die hard fans.

          • Lol! We’ve got some die hard Seahawk fans down here as well.

          • Grr! 49ers forever ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Woot woot! The Niners rock! We usually root for the Cardinals, but my dad grew up in San Fran, so the 49ers are awesome too. ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Yay! Are you a big Colin Kaepernick fan like me?

          • Yeah, he’s pretty cool!

          • He’s one of those guys who it’s nearly impossible to not like!

          • Joy Swen

            Where are you? (Generally)

          • Near Phoenix, AZ. So we’re all for the Cards! ๐Ÿ˜›

        • Josiah J.

          I live in Paraguay, South America.

          I’m an MK (missionary kid).

          • Joseph M

            How’s life there?

          • Josiah J.

            Paraguay is rated the #1 happiest nation in the world.

            It has its ups and downs, but overall there is quite a bit of freedom here. Catholicism is prominent. Anything lower than 70* F is cold, usually staying near 80* F and can get over 100* F. Life is good. :)

          • Ethan H.

            Yikes! Interesting.

          • Joseph M

            It’s that hot there? I didn’t know that.

          • GodsThespian

            Anything lower than 70 degrees is cold?!?! Dude, anything above 80 is considered hot where I live!

          • Josiah J.

            80 degrees is like perfect. :)

          • GodsThespian

            I agree — it’s really funny to hear people saying how hot it is outside when I’m comfortable in a t-shirt and *gasp* long jeans! But really, 85 degrees and people are saying “Ohhhh, it’s soooo hot and humid out here!” People are unusual…

          • Haylie

            That’s pretty neat!! I’m a PK, but i live in the U.S. :)

          • Whoa, I hadn’t realized that! That’s awesome! Did you grow up in Paraguay or move there?

          • Josiah J.

            I grew up here in Paraguay.

      • GodsThespian

        Never ask a question, never get an answer… I get off-topic so often, I should put that at the bottom of like every comment I ever post!
        Yes, it would be awesome to meet everyone on here!

  • gdb

    If it is satirical, as in an atheist-written short story, then that’s free speech. It’s not hurting anyone.
    If it’s in an inspiring n g movie, such as Son Of God, then awesome!!
    If it’s just a stupid joke, that is a sin.

    • Joseph M

      I do think it’s wrong, though, if it’s satirical, even though I don’t think we should bash them about it. And I do think that it hurts. The Bible says not to take the Lord’s name in vain, and mocking Him in a short story is NOT respectful to him.

      • gdb

        I guess you’re probably right. I hadn’t thought about it t g at way.

  • Joseph M

    Like so many other things, there are two parts to this: the motivation and the action.

    First, the motivation. No matter how accurate the portrayal is, if they’re doing it to mock or make a joke out of it, then it’s wrong. Period.
    Then there’s the portrayal. Even If the motivation is correct, if the portrayal is wrong, then it’s disrespectful, whether it was accidentally or not.
    So this is what I think. For it to be safe and fine, it has to, (1) be motivated by a correct motivation, such as wanting to glorify God or help others know Him, and (2) be done correctly, which means that He must be done accurately (Show Him the way He is, not all judgmental or soft, not something to be laughed at).
    Does this make sense?

  • I am on a mime team- Aim San Diego. I think what we do on the team would be less effective if we didn’t have someone play God or Jesus. I think that it is okay in situations where it glorifies God. Our team is able to share the gospel and encourage believers by playing God and Jesus. :-)

    • Josh A

      Wait, have you met @mimeforjesus:disqus yet? She’s on a mime team, too!

      • Josh A

        Oh my goodness, that was my 666th disqus comment haha. ๐Ÿ˜— ๐Ÿ˜

        • Haylie

          Comment again! Quickly! ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Josh A

            Yeah that one was my 667th I think. =)

        • Abigail McCoy

          yikes! ๐Ÿ˜‰
          One time when I was bowling I got a bunch of misses so for a while my score actually read out to 666!

          • Josh A

            Wait, I thought the max score in bowling was 300….I’m probably wrong though. =)

          • Abigail McCoy

            well, for each turn it was like 6 then 0, 6 then 0, 6 then 0, so take out the 0s and…;)

      • Yes. We have spoken. :-)

        • Josh A

          Ok cool! =)

        • GodsThespian

          Shhhhh! *looks around nervously* Don’t tell anyone we talk! We have to maintain our image! ;D

          • *puts ear to crack in comment wall*

            Pssst! Hey, guys, come over here; I can hear everything they’re saying!

          • Ethan H.

            ?? I missed that comment! Can you repost the rest of it??
            :)

          • Oh, @mimeforjesus:disqus said this:

            Shhhhh! *looks around nervously* Don’t tell anyone we talk! We have to maintain our image! ;D

            and I couldn’t help it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If that’s what you meant.

          • Ethan H.

            Haha. Yep! Thanks.

          • GodsThespian

            Stop listening in in a private conversation, Christy!

          • Hey! You weren’t supposed to listen in on my listening in on your conversation!! XD

          • GodsThespian

            Hehehe, you were listening first! XD

          • *ahem* I believe the statute of limitations on my listening in has passed.
            Lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            Haha :)

          • Oops.. :-O Can’t believe I let that slide.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            Seriously, Rebekah! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • You read my mind! (Well, actually my first thought was that she’d changed her profile pic and username to mess with us…which didn’t seem all that unlikely!)

        • Haha! No, I’m not GodsThespian. Or the old MimeforJesus.
          :-) That would be kinda funny though ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • =) So long have have you been on the Reb?

          • Well, a long time actually. I just rarely comment. How long have you been on here?

          • Cool :) Well, I read Do Hard Things almost five years ago. I think I found the website shortly after that. My first comment was two years ago, but I didn’t actively comment until Brett started the DQs.
            Anyway, that was the long answer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m glad you decided to comment!

          • Oh ok. Cool! It’s nice on here. :-)

          • Yup!
            Btw, I see that you’re a fellow blogger! :)

          • I love blogging. How’d you know I was a blogger? And I’d love to see your blog. Assuming you have one. :-)

          • Awesome! You have a link to your blog in your profile. :) I do! It’s https://theteentheme.wordpress.com
            I haven’t written anything in a few months, but I plan to get back into the habit, starting with a post on Easter. :)

          • GodsThespian

            I don’t see the link… HOW DID YOU FIND IT?

          • Lol XD Click on her username. It should be right next to her upvotes count. (And if you’re on a phone, you might just see a symbol for a link)

          • GodsThespian

            Whoa, I had no idea what that button was!

          • Lol! Maybe I should put the link to my blog in my bio then…I had no idea it was hiding so well. XD

          • GodsThespian

            Well, now that I know where it is, I’ll find other peoples’ blogs a lot easier! But the link in the bio is a good idea :)

          • Glad to help! :)

          • GodsThespian

            Waaait, you have a blog? I’m totally checking it out!
            Have you seen “MimeBlog”? Charleton somebody-or-other started it… It’s got some good mime info on it :)

          • Yes, I do. It’s nothing fancy. livingformyLordandSavior.blogspot.com
            No, I haven’t. Do you have the link? I’d like to check it out. :-)

          • GodsThespian
          • Thank you!!!

          • I can’t believe I hadn’t seen that. ๐Ÿ˜€

          • GodsThespian

            I found it a little while ago myself. It’s been helpful while I led the younger team this year :) All those songs have been fun to watch, too!

          • GodsThespian

            I like your blog :)

        • GodsThespian

          And what are you insinuating about me, Miss Christy?

          • What are you insinuating about my insinuation? ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • GodsThespian

            You’re the one who started it, Kittenese! I’m not insinuating anything!
            Wow, this is sooo off-topic!

          • Lol, I know right?! (And I’m pretty sure you started it…)

      • GodsThespian

        Yes! I know her… I “met” her a while ago :)

    • Josiah J.

      How does your group work? Are you street evangelist?

      • Not necessarily street evangelism stuffs. Like we can go and present pretty much anywhere. We use drama and mime with music to share the gospel and encourage the believers. Does that answer your question?
        If you want to check us out, here is our website: aimsandiego.org.

        • Josiah J.

          Looks like a neat ministry you have going there.
          Is it an international movement now or still only in the U. S.?

          • Well, I know they have a team in like Scotland or something. But it isn’t technically the same ministry. We used to be apart of AIM. It’s kinda confusing…. But there are quite a few teams throughout the U.S. and at least one out of the country. We aren’t necessarily connected. A lot of us used to be, but since the new changes with AIM, things have changed. I hope that makes at least a little bit of sense.

          • GodsThespian

            I forgot that Aim still exists.. it’s a lot smaller than it used to be!
            But I still see Aim shirts around where I live!

          • Well, AIM around the world isn’t doing as much as it used to. It’s funny walking around and seeing shirts from your team or another team. Haha.

          • GodsThespian

            Is there a way I could buy an AIM shirt, or would I have to be on a current AIM team? I’m on LTW, which used to be SSA and before then was an AIM _____ team. (If you know the acronyms, great — if not, I don’t think I should give you the full name because that would tell everyone where I live…)

          • You may be able to get one. You could contact Samuel Hughes. He has some and may be willing to get you one. ([email protected])
            Ok. No problem. :-)

          • GodsThespian

            Thank you!

          • GodsThespian

            Hey Josiah I just looked at your profile… is your profile pic one of your drawings?

          • Josiah J.

            Yes. :)

          • GodsThespian

            So I showed your profile picture to my sister, who’s into drawing too, and she saw it and where you said you’re an “amateur pencil artist” and she looked at what you said, looked back at the picture, then said “ AMATEUR pencil artist?!?!” I think you’ve thoroughly earned her respect :)

          • Josiah J.

            Your sister is too kind… Now I am curios what
            your sister’s art looks like. :)

          • GodsThespian

            She does a lot of clothing… But she also done some other stuff… I’ll see if I can get my hands on any of it :)

          • GodsThespian

            Well, every time I try to upload a picture of something she’s drawn, the computer says it’s too big a file. :*(

    • A mime team! I checked out the website… thats really cool!!!

      • I’m glad you thought it was cool. :-) We have some videos if you are interested. Here is one of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xvZO3vQd0A
        Have you ever been on any kind of drama team?

        • GodsThespian

          Ohhh, “Everything”… my team hasn’t done it yet, but someday I want to!

        • I clicked on the video thinking that the mime thing was a little strange, but that was amazing! I’m definitely going to check out the rest of your videos!

          • Glad you liked it. I hope they can be an encouragement to you in some way. :-)

        • Louis Gervais

          Whereas I found the “BlimeyCow video” irreverent, this one is good and I find nothing wrong with it. What helps is that Jesus has no speaking lines in this, and never says “I am God” or “I am Jesus,” and the audience knows it’s an analogy.

        • I love it! I’ve never been on a drama team, but I’m joining one in the fall. :)

          • Oh ok. Cool! What type of drama team? Like what do they do?

    • Kira Quintin

      I’m on a mime team too! We used to be AIM Blacksburg, but now we’re Silent Lights Discipleship Ministry. The message is definitely way clearer when we have guys playing God or Jesus, but we make sure it’s biblically (sp?) accurate and not disrespectful at all.

      • GodsThespian

        WHAAAAT?! My team came (LTW) came to visit you in March on their missions trip! And if I remember right, you joined us for a joint presentation in Washington, DC two years ago, right? Wow! This is great, meeting mimes from around the country!
        How long have you been a mime?

        • Kira Q.

          Yes!!! I missed the dinner during the missions trip and I was too young to go to DC :( but didn’t you guys come down and do a workshop once? I could be wrong…
          I’ll have been a mime for about four years this summer. What about you?

          • GodsThespian

            I just realized, I know your last name from Facebook!
            Well, I wasn’t at DC myself, so we wouldn’t have met even if you were there :) Wish I could have been, but unfortunately I couldn’t take the time from school and it wouldn’t have worked for other reasons :( I wish I’d been there!
            I believe we’ve done workshops for you a lot… I’ve never been on the missions trips, so I could be wrong, too!
            I’ve been a full-fledged mime for two years now. I think that’s the right number :) I halfway-joined partway through the spring session of 2012; I missed training camp so I couldn’t be in any of the songs, but I hung out with the team and did Bible Study and everything else with them.
            What’s your favorite song?

          • Kira Q.

            I’ve never been on one of the missions trip either. :(
            I have so many favorite songs, I don’t know which one I would pick! Maybe “Alive” and “Keys to the Kingdom.” But I also like “Virtuoso” and a bunch of others. They’re so much fun! What’s your favorite?

          • GodsThespian

            I love Alive! Virtuoso was a veritable disaster last time we did it… it was all of the newer people, and we could. Not. Find. The. Beat. Ever. It must have been sheer misery for the older mimes to watch us butcher the song like we did!
            Hmmm, Alive and “Go” are my favorites :) I got to be Mary in Go this session! And I get to be Barnabas :)

      • Cool! I think I have seen some of your team’s videos. You guys do have videos up on youtube, right?

        • Kira Q.

          Yeah, we do. How long have you been a mime?

      • Hey Kira, I am so sorry I never responded to your comment. I just saw it….. Hopefully, you will see this since it has been like two years since you posted it. I have heard of Silent Lights. I think I actually follow your team on YouTube. I have been with the mime team for over 6 years now (I think- really hard to keep track!).

  • Connie Eugenia Eugenius

    I think that the main issue lies in what “God” was acting like in the movie or show. We have a GREAT God, everyone. He’s not to be made fun of or joked about. Our God is righteous and just, which is why he would have had to destroy us if it weren’t for Jesus. If whoever was playing God wasn’t acting in those ways then I would have hard feelings towards them.

        Thanks! I love reading blogs and devotionals that can cause me to think more about my savior.

    • GodsThespian

      Welcome to the Rebelution, Connie! I think you’re on all the same sites as me, now… :)

    • Louis Gervais

      I agree wholeheartedly!

  • Joy Swen

    I think it’s ok for Jesus to be portrayed in plays or skits as long as they’re representing Him accurately and respectfully. If they’re portraying Him wrong or disrespectfully, I do not think that’s ok.

  • Sawyer B.

    Pretty much what everyone else said. As long as they have good intentions toward drawing people closer to God, they’re okay.

    On a random side note, I’ve finally decided to join you guys in commenting! I’ve been reading the articles and all your off topic convos for a while now, and I thought it was high time that I step in and join the fun. =D

    • Welcome to The Rebelution, Sawyer! ๐Ÿ˜€

          ikr!!!
          I LOVE LOTR!!!

        • Olivia Chambers

          Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit trilogies are truly amazing! Do you like the books or the movies? Oh, and welcome. :)

    • GodsThespian

      I’m late welcoming you, but welcome to the family!

    • GodsThespian

      Hold. On. Did you ever live in the US? I was in Driver’s Ed with a guy named Sawyer who was from England!

      • Sawyer B.

        No, I’ve only visited the US, not lived there. And I don’t think I took a Driver’s Ed class during the trip!! ๐Ÿ˜› But now you can say that you know two Sawyers from England.

        • GodsThespian

          Cool :) Where did you visit when you came over here?

    • Josiah J.

      Yer from England ya say?
      I say, such a dandy fine day for a spot of tea. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • GodsThespian

        Or for second breakfast ;D

        • Josiah J.

          Or an afternoon snack. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Sawyer B.

        XD Funny that you should say that, as I am currently drinking tea, and it’s supposed to be a fine, un-rainy day!

        • Eva H.

          Lol I have always wanted to go to England! ๐Ÿ˜› But I’ve never been out of the country…:(

        • Josiah J.

          That is an interesting coincidence.

        • GodsThespian

          Haha! Well, I drink tea, too — and I’m a German American, so… not sure what happened there! I defy stereotypes!

    • Gabrielle

      Welcome officially to the Reb Sawyer B.!! Glad you’re here! :)

    • Cathy

      May I just be the first one to say, “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

      I love LOTR and The Hobbit!
      May your days be filled with tea, second breakfasts, rings, and ale at the Green Dragon!

  • Clare Pulley

    Hi,

    Again like many times I didn’t read all of the posts so please forgive me if I said the same things as you did! For the things in BlimeyCow I would consider that abusing the Ten Commandments. I understand it is for comedy and all but it went a little too far for me. Just my opinion though. Now, if the person pretending to be God or Jesus was doing it in a respectful way such as doing a play about the Passion of Christ then I believe that is very acceptable.

    Hope I could be of some help and God Bless,
    Clare

    • Sawyer B.

      I think Blimey Cow is mainly trying to be sarcastic, and showing what God doesn’t do.

      • GodsThespian

        And the people who don’t understand Blimey Cow’s sarcasm are really funny to watch!

    • Seth Yoder

      Sometimes even pastors use sarcasm to convey a truth about God. Maybe not as blatant as Blimey Cow does. For instance: A pastor might say, “God isn’t sitting up there saying, ‘Nope! You didn’t go to church enough. Sorry. Next!'” That’s basically what Blimey Cow does, really.

      • Clare Pulley

        Okay. Thank you for letting me know. It seems like a VERY different way of teaching the truth about something.

        • Seth Yoder

          Yeah. I’ve questioned their sarcasm before too, but it does seem to bring the point across quite well.

      • Olivia Chambers

        I agree with you.

  • All stories reflect the gospel because all our earthly relationships reflect our relationship with God. We are God’s sons and daughters. We are his bride. He is our teacher, our friend, our brother, our king, our avenger, our healer, our redeemer etc. In this way, every story’s hero/heroine “represents” God in some way. Of course, God is not a character in most stories, even Christian ones, but when God is a character in movies or plays, if these movies depict him respectfully, there is nothing wrong with that. I have never actually watched BlimeyCow, but I do not think that making of our misconceptions of God, even through sarcasm, is necessarily wrong either if one shows that God is not actually like that but only perceived to be like that.

  • Personally it’s just gross to see BlimeyCow’s representations of “God”. That’s why I don’t watch his videos, because I don’t understand the need for constant foolishness and over-animation. There’s nothing wrong with humor, but give it a leash.

    • Ethan H.

      What is BlimeyCow?

      • It’s a YouTube comic group that covers various topics from a loosely Christian point of view.

        • Ethan H.

          Okay. I’ve heard some about them, but I didn’t know. Thanks!
          Are you new to the Reb?

          • Mhmm, pretty much. :) I’ve come back to the website occasionally but just made an account.

          • Ethan H.

            Welcome! You’ll love it here!

          • Thanks, I’m sure I will .

          • Welcome to the craziest family in history, hope you enjoy your stay! And I love your name, btw. :))

      • Only one of the most amazing YouTube channels ever! Seriously, go check it out: http://youtube.com/?#/channel/UC0jIctUPBK6lHw4AYnGHvCA

      • I’m with Sam. I personally love (love love!) Blimey Cow, but that doesn’t everyone should or does. Just go in prepared for sarcasm and silliness and humor with a moral and you’ll be fine. :)

      • Josh A

        Oh good, I’m not the only person out here who thinks Blimey Cow is…..meh. =)

        • Caleb Bykov

          You are definitely not the only person who likes Blimey Cow. My family loves them and I am constantly telling my friends about them!

          • Josh A

            Ha! Yeah, there’s a lot of people on here that like blimey cow! Funny though, I was actually saying I thought that they were “meh” and I meant that they were….kind of ok lol. XD

            Hey, are you new here? If so, welcome to the Reb! =D

          • Caleb Bykov

            Yeah I’m new, my sister @lianaseager:disqus introduced me to this site. I have the book DHT and I am currently in correspondence with Brett Harris!

          • Josh A

            Oh, cool! Welcome to the Reb! =D

      • THANK YOU I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!!!!!!

        • Ethan H.

          Yeah!!

      • Caleb Bykov

        Blimey Cow is a group of christian college students who try to address issues in a funny and relevant way. Some of the videos are sarcastic and can put a bit of a rude tone on God and christianity, but for the most part they really really spot on in what they say:-)

  • Olivia Chambers

    I think that it would depend on the purpose of the video. Blimey Cow’s purpose is usually to make fun of some peoples views of God by addressing how silly those opinions are compared to how God really is. I don’t think that they meant any disrespect by it. :) On the other hand, I have seen videos that portray Jesus in a very negative way just to be funny without a right purpose behind it. So, I think it just depends on the heart behind the video.

  • pocketwatchcowboy

    I guess it depends on the heart of the people who make the videos.

    In the view if Blimey Cow, I’ve talked to Josh before and have saw a heart for God shine through. Their videos just tend to be jokily pointing about how over fanatical and offended people can be over someone who has different views to them. But that doesn’t make them any less Christian.

    On the other hand, if the person portraying God and Jesus is a slight against God or is made to make Him look bad, I would be unhappy with that situation.

    Regards,

    Jack.
