First Church of God
Whenever I see this sign -- I wonder -- "Really?"

The First??

How come you never see "The 24th Church of God"???

Nooo..

Everybody's gotta be first......

It's like reincarnation --- everybody was a warrior priest, king, queen or something cool. This life is never an upgrade from the time they were "Urt - the stable cleaning boy".

....
Makes me think these people are a bit on the egotistical side....

.......................................

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Egoistical? It is not like the faithfull believe that entire world was created for them, and god-creator watch what they do. Or is it?

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I t would be more appropriate to call it "Jesus's Number 2".

Hey hey hey!
I was a battle cleric in my previous life. Sad
Of course by 'previous life' I mean my D&D days in the 80s..... but that's beside the point!

RE: First Church of God
They aren't claiming that they're the first church worshiping the one true God or anything like that. Usually "First" in the name of a church means it was the first church of that denomination established in that town or area. Occasionally you'll see something like "Second Baptist Church" in a place that already has a "First Baptist," but usually they'll pick another name. And "Church of God" is a denominational name used by several protestant groups.

I'm just thinking out loud.

Laugh out load Laugh out load

Two LOLs. Although I've heard it described as "all piss anyway" so calling your church #1 may not actually be all that inappropriate.

Very valid point.

I thought of that the first time I read your post lol. I was just going to come in here and say that.

I too also think that. someday I am going to walk in and give them flak about them not being the first.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

They may not be the first church. But you can bet they're the first ones to get everything right.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.
