🥧 FREE FOR ALL, (Food Fight) Love and laughter

Well, we ‘might’ throw food if Jesus starts it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I think Jesus has a great sense of humour. He made all of us didn’t he? And he gave us a sense of humour. We are made in his likeness or image.

I truly believe he is the one that gave me the idea for this thread to begin with. He wanted us to have some fun while we wait. He knows how depressed and down in the dumps some people have been and he wanted to relieve our stress.
I personally thank him for this thread.

1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Hmmm. Could be! :grin:

He may very well be looking at all us stiff necks shaking his head and can’t wait to loosen us up a bit…or a lot! :joy:

Good grief Folks, lighten up…this isn’t a life or death hill to die on. It’s a light hearted RELEASE for us to share some laughs with fellow believers. God Himself Laughed!

Pssssst…it’s not real food :speak_no_evil::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::rofl:

All this doom and gloom on the other threads just make me tired. I sometimes feel like I reading MSM instead of a Christian forum. :weary:

I’m thankful to my sweet Sister @DallasT for starting it :purple_heart:

Do you really think that a food fight has its place in heaven or in a church!

“Be holy because I’m holy”

What Pastor JD thinks about this topic? Just ask him.

I am saying this in Love. I hope you understand that.
This is NOT Heaven. This is NOT a church. And the Food is NOT real.
You ask J.D.
We are Holy because Jesus made us Holy. There is nothing we can do to become Holier.

If one can’t handle people laughing and having fun, one should avoid this thread altogether.

Hmmmm, from what little I actually know about him, I’d say he’d get a laugh out of us having fun! He’s a funny man with a great sense of humor in his messages :wink:
One of the reasons I listen to him :raised_hands:t3:

Just putting this out there :innocent:

Legalism: The pressure of personal preferences that we impose upon other people as moral mandates from God

Actually, I do recall JD laughing and cracking a joke here and there in the BPU’s…

More concerning would be if we let this transition from lighthearted into a real fight and lose sight of unity.

Yes! Great definition of legalism. I dealt with that in church for many years.

I did, as well! Took me several years to figure out that’s not what church is supposed to be like.

Caused a lot of false guilt and discouragement in the Christian walk as well.

Agreed with her sentiment. I think I had a similar look on my face as well. The last time I looked, God was the God of all even the God of laughter and merriment. I mean when things go good but we don’t share that with God is that not a form of selfishness? Who among us are to say God does not enjoy and good funny joke now and then. Why do we always try to put Him in a stuffy old school marm box with a sour looking face all of the time.

Romans 12:16, 14:15-16, 15:1-2 also brethren. Metaphorically speaking I guess??

Bet he was grounded for a good long while as well. Mom’s don’t take kindly to ugly kid pictures. It is not how they want to remember them.

Romans 14:13-23 especially.

Therefore let us stop judging one another.

Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way.

I am convinced and fully persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself.

But if anyone regards something as unclean, then for him it is unclean.

If your brother is distressed by what you eat, you are no longer acting in love.

Do not by your eating destroy your brother, for whom Christ died.

Do not allow what you consider good, then, to be spoken of as evil.

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

For whoever serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men.

So then, let us pursue what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a man to let his eating be a stumbling block.

It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything to cause your brother to stumble.

Keep your belief about such matters between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves.

But the one who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that is not from faith is sin.

So Paul was speaking about eating food, and how the Gentiles were not eating Kosher foods like the Jews. This really goes beyond just eating food , but for just about everything that one might consider a sin.

In this case a thread about a virtual food fight.

Paul’s words above certainly apply.

If this thread is sin to you, why do you come back to it? (general question to anyone here)…

IDK, it is an addiction? I haven’t got the brains that God gave to a flea? Maybe I am just hungry all of the time.

Worse yet I tend to do those things I am told not to do so I am going to push my stumbling block bolder right into the thread.

I only know that this forum is filled with compassionate brethren who, in real time, share of their bounty and strive not to be wasteful. This topic is meant to be a stress reliever in a heavy world of burdensome realities, and I am sure that no one here is promoting wastefulness and overindulgence. ESPECIALLY at this stage of our times.

Not everyone enjoys silliness, and that’s life. I’ve said it before, here, but many who participate have far heavier burdens in their real lives than most of us know about. This spot gives them a hearty and momentary cheer in a pervasively serious world. They already know that—the seriousness. They step away from this topic and weep over their own situations.

This spot is virtual and the memes are recycled. I hope that we can give each other some grace. Having said that there is a way to block the topic from your notifications. Sometimes, that is the best approach.

Temptation to laugh? Smile maybe? I don’t know, I ask the same question. One thing is for sure, if anyone is offended by a fictional food fight then their going to have a problem if they get to heaven and Jesus is cracking jokes.
