My Twitter-worthy but Not-so-Deep Theological Ponderings of the Christmas Season (complete with hashtags)

1. Do Pentecostal snowmen ever pray for a fiery revival? #ifyoucantstandtheheatgetoutofthesanctuary

2. Would Buddy the Elf have told King Herod “you sit on a throne of lies”? #fakesanta #cottonheadedninnymoggins #crazyking

3. If a careless worshipper spills candle wax on a pew cushion during the Christmas Eve Service will the perpetrator be placed on Santa’s “Naughty List”? #janitorsarenthappyeither

4. Couldn’t a contestant on the Wheel of Fortune buy a vowel for Myrrh? #PatIdliketobuyavowel

5. If one has nine Christmas trees in their house (and I do), can that house be declared a National Forest by the Department of Natural Resources? #toomanytrees

6. Would “wee little man” Zaccheaus have been upset if someone mistook him for an elf? #notfromthenorthpole

7. Would a perfect Christmas gift for Moses have been an iPad since he broke his tablets? #Mosesbutterfingers

8. Can a five point Calvinist “re-gift” unwanted Christmas presents or do they live by the motto: “Once your gift… always your gift”? #oncesavedalwayssaved

9. Isn’t a “Hanging of the Greens” service a little too violent? I don’t think the Halls like the idea of getting decked, either. #noexecutions #nofighting

10. Would P.F. Bresee (founder of the CoTN) have allowed Dancer and Prancer to become members of the Church of the Nazarene? #nodancing

On a much more serious note, in your theological musing this Christmas season I hope you reflect on the glorious words of John 1, when the apostle wrote:

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14) #bestnewsever #nojoke
