Text God

It seems prayers no longer cut the mustard with the big guy. He has got himself a mobile phone and ain't afraid to use it. According to the ad just text 5600 "Lord" and he'll respond with warming advice and encouragement.

Interestingly, if you text 5600 "star" he'll send you a horoscope. I guess even the good lord has to pay the bills.

But how will he know my star sign?

Martha said...

I think he knows all. Its a wonder really that he doesn't just send horoscopes out spontaneously.

Who else would know your future huh?

pink flamingo said...

Can you prove to me he even exists?

Martha said...

I'm sure if he did exist he'd come up with a better way of contacting people than with text messages.

So no. Can't prove nuffin.

Hi Martha
Do you think churches will hand out mobile phones instead of prayer books now?
Where is your parents' house in the Wairarapa? I didn't know they were there.

Well apparently Destiny's Church pass around a mobile eftpos machine along with the collections plate, and since they've got a direct line to God, the lord's obviously got a T1 connection thing going on.

Hey Martha ;-) Thanks for posting on my blog! Your the first person to have psoted on my blog! Don't you feel special? - As you can tell my blog is very new....Hmm don't think my life is interesting enough to keep my blog going..... Do you know any other Petone blogs apart from our ones?

Cheers,
Pink Flamingo xox

Hi Helen, my parents' place is just north of Clareville on Hughes Line.

Pink, there is a terrific blog called onebefore (see my links) - although it hasn't been updated for a while!

And as for Destiny Church - they are so creepy. I'm more frightened of brian Tamaki than Don Brash (and that is saying something).

Funny, when anonymous posted to my site he or she seemed a lot more intelligent...

Maybe s/he's american, I'm told they don't have irony there.

Martha said...

I believe they're actually in Christchurch. Teenagers have very little irony too, I've found.

Anonymous certainly is an enigma. Perhaps a diagnosis of multiple personality order?

Mike said...

There can be little difference between fundamental Christhcurch and fundamental USA but it's not all the same.

I do like the way that anonymous used txt language to have a go - maybe that was God talking to you?!

Martha said...

Yeah, but little does God know that I'm text language illiterate.
