That Oft-Told Parable of Jesus the Thug


Conversation that took place in the backseat of the Sentra yesterday afternoon after Boy #2 told some sort of lie, which has lately become his favorite hobby:

Boy #3: Jesus and God doesn’t like it when you lie! (Actually pronounced, “why” by the 3-year-old.)

Boy #2: Fine. Sorry, Jesus and God! (Said under his breath in the most sarcastic voice he could muster.)

Me: Hey, #2, that is no way to talk to Jesus and God!

Boy #3: Yeah, Jesus and God will come down here and punch you in the head!

Note to self: Make sure kids attend church on Sunday.

  1. I am so glad that children are considered “innocent” because I would fear for their little souls sometimes, otherwise. Daughter #1 once had to have a little talking to about the words “poop” and “butt” not being allowed in prayers. And if it makes you feel any better, today I gave the kids pomegranate juice for lunch, which they haven’t had for a long, long time and same daughter proclaimed that hers tasted like beer! I told her that she had never drank beer, so how did she know? But the sad part was that then I tasted it, and it did taste like beer. So that freaked me out slightly that she was able to pick up on that so quickly. So then I told her that she had never drank beer and that I don’t want to talk about it any more, but the whole rest of the lunch she would take a drink and say “Ahhh…my beer is good!” As long as she doesn’t say that in the lunchroom next year, we’re good.

  2. That was hilarious. HA HA HA! It reminds me of a story when my boys were little. I’ll have to create a post for that!

  3. Jesus the Thug!!! ROFL, that’s a good one.

    This actually reminds me, I think my son #1 (almost 10) has been sarcastic with just about everyone except Jesus or God. 😉
