10.26.2010 – Christians Having Their Brains Removed?

 

One of my Facebook Friends posted this as their status tonight:

Being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God picks you from the patch and washes all the dirt off of you. He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate and greed. He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see. This was passed to me by another pumpkin. Now it’s your turn to pass it on to the pumpkins in your patch!

If you ask me, this sounds a lot like a metaphor for a full frontal lobotomy.  Seriously, how can this be something to be proud of? It’s a willful disregard for one’s own mind. A blind acceptance of the ‘soup du-jour’ if you will. I just don’t get it. I don’t understand the mentality of surrendering one’s logic and reason for submission to faith and belief without any evidence.

    I dont want to get into a theological debate here, I really dont…but, “scoops out the yucky stuff”? Following this “pumpkin’s” logic here…who put that “yucky stuff” there? Just where does that yucky stuff go when “He” is through scooping it? The Gulf of Mexico?! Oh please. Something is definitely rotten in the Great Patch, Charlie Brown….

    Great post as always, CJ :))
