    And then he did not rest in the bean bag chair and then did not watch the “Left Behind” series on the DVD player.

    What a difference a century made….a sad thing when entertaining the youth with a “youth room” and dumbing them down with junk food seems to create a bright future for the church.

    He would have had a hard time with air hockey wearing skinny jeans and the hair gel melting under the sweat of the competition would have hurt his chances too…
    Not.

    But he’s not sportin’ the latest tatoo, and not wearing khaki pants with Hawaiin shirt. But the air hockey in the mid 1800′s was radical. HE was a rascal wasn’t he?

    He was possibly outside smoking a cigar instead.

    Heh. Could have been!

    Why “outside” for a cigar in 1857? See-gars were even common in courtrooms through at least the 1930′s.

    Are you saying that he actually influenced a generation of believers and and had a Christ centered ministry that has impacted the world and encouraged the saints all the up to the present moment without trying to be cool and hip. Wow. Novel concept.

    He definitely was not playing air hockey. Cause the aiar would blow his cigar ashes all over his suit… And of course we all know being covered in sackcloth and ashes was descriptive for being in mourning, and not prescriptive for the believer in the new covenant.

    “Well, dear friend, if you want to get old, the surest way is to get old. I mean this. Think that you cannot do what you used to do, and give up your religious engagements because you are getting old; give up preaching because you are so old; give up the Sunday-school because you are so old; and you will be old fast enough:
    that is the sure way to make yourself old.” CHS
