h&f 0052 Don’t Turn To Your Neighbor

I am a Christian.  That just means believing in Jesus, accepting his offer, and trusting him to be who he said he is.  But if I hear one more preacher (this is a Baptist thing) say “Turn to your neighbor and say, ‘Ain’t God good,” or “Turn to your neighbor and say, ‘I’m blessed,” or “Turn to your neighbor and [insert your own],” then I’m bustin’ up the service.

I don’t think Jesus would have us playing this game.  He wouldn’t get us all goofy and neck-tired telling our neighbors every little thing.   …come to think of it, he probably wouldn’t wear a Rolex on his television show either [hold to the 1:24 point – or, of course, you can just skip to the chorus]:

Oh, one more neighbor tip, from The Emotions…

  1. Guilty as charged! However, it is an overdone mnemonic device that has outlived it’s usefulness and should be buried never to be resurrected. The Emotions thing is sweet. I Like!

  2. All good, Revvy Rev. Much obliged for passin thru!
