That’s what Fundamentalist Mike Ratliff, a writer for the Christian Research Network, asked in a blog post. Ratliff was trying to make a serious, spiritual point in his post, but my perverse, Satanically-influenced, reprobate mind quickly answered the question in quite a different way. What follows is atheist pastor Bruce Gerencser’s answer to the question, what does it mean to walk in the light?
Walking in the light means:
- Not tripping over the clothes I left on the floor
- Not tripping over the cat snoozing on the floor
- Not tripping over Polly’s shoes
- Not banging my shin on the metal bed frame
- Not running into the TV tray that Bethany said she would put away
- Not stepping on the LEGO my granddaughter left on the floor
- Not bumping into the dining room table and falling
- Not stepping on the Matchbox car my grandson left on the living room floor
- Not missing the step down into the kitchen
- My neighbors can see my nakedness as I run to the bathroom
- I won’t step in the barf present the cat left on the dining room floor
Do you think these are the answers Mike Ratliff was looking for?
We have six night lights on the first floor of our home. These lights are like Jesus, the Lighthouse, except they shine the way, not to heavenly bliss, but to the bathroom, kitchen, office, and living room.
