Finding God Through Your Cat?

Is it possible that you are finding God through your cat?

An important question was raised in YAHOO ANSWERS the other day, Why did God make cats?

There were several theories tossed around, but the blogger who got the most votes for his answer said, in part:

“I guess I couldn’t tell you the actual reason God created cats, but I can tell you why I think He did. First is because He loves us very much, and He knows cats are good for lowering our blood pressure because they make us relax. A cat’s purr has got to be the most relaxing sound I can think of!”

That was a great answer, and though I am a ‘dog person,’ I would have to say that God gives us many special gifts in our lives, including the gifts of pets.

But all of this reminds me of a funny joke about why God created cats.

It is reported that the following edition of the Book of Genesis was discovered in the Dead Seal Scrolls.

And Adam said, “Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me.”

And God said, “No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know I love you, even when you cannot see me.

Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself.”

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, “But Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and all the good names are taken and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.”

And God said, “No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.”

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam’s guardian angel came to the Lord and said, “Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught him humility.”

And the Lord said, “No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration.”

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat’s eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved.

And Cat did not care one way or the other.

As cute as this is, the ‘songatized’ video below fully demonstrates the uncanny power cats can have over many people.

This is purfect! Finding God, or at least a purpose in life, is possible through your cat.

Finding God Through Prayer at NASCAR


Finding God Through Prayer at NASCAR?

When Pastor Joe Nelms stepped up to the the microphone at the Nationwide Federated Auto Parts 300, the crowd and racers bowed their heads as he said a few words to the good Lord. Who knew that they would soon be chuckling, then applauding the prayer that would be heard around the world?

What exactly did Joe pray that was so funny?

Heavenly father, we thank you tonight for all your blessings you sent and all things give thanks. So we want to thank you tonight for these mighty machines that you brought before us. Thank you for the Dodges and the Toyotas. Thank you for the Fords. And most of all we thank you for Roush and Yates partnering to give us the power that we see before us tonight. Thank you for GM performance technology and RO7 engines. Thank you for Sunoco racing fuel and Goodyear tires that bring performance and power to the track. Lord, I want to thank you for my smoking’ hot wife tonight, Lisa. And my two children, Eli and Emma or as we like to call ‘em, the little Es. Lord, I pray you bless the drivers and use them tonight. May they put on a performance worthy of this great track. In Jesus name, boogity boogity boogity, Amen.”

    Was it wrong for him to pray such a prayer? Well let’s see, here’s what he got right:

        1. He actually acknowledged God’s presence.

     

        2. He praised God for provisions.

     

        3. He praised God for his family.

     

        4. He asked God to bless the drivers.

     

        5. He prayed in the name of Jesus.

     

        6. He prayed in such a way that we can tell he has a friendship with God.

     

      7. He enjoyed God.

    So it appears to me that at least Pastor Joe had no trouble finding God through prayer at NASCAR. To watch a clip of the actual prayer, electronically changed into a hilarious song by Schmoyoho, view below;
