quotes of the week:

You don’t see American Muslims getting to say, “You know the term ‘Muslim’ has been tainted just a little bit by that whole terrorism thing, and I’m not so comfortable with being called that anymore. I’m not a Muslim anymore. I’m an Allah-follower.” – Matt Appling

All forms of spirituality have at their base a fundamental desire for humanity to connect with something or, dare I say it, someone larger than it. Jesus of Nazareth, a historically-verifiable dirty-footed impoverished Jewish woodworker, pretty much wrote the book on that relationship. He also had some pretty good things to say about how to treat each other too. All we have to do, he said, is realize God actually digs us, and spread the love around a little bit. – Jon Ellis

Seriously. Jesus started the whole “wait three days” thing. He waited THREE days to come back to life. It was perfect! If he had only waited ONE day, a lot of people wouldn’t have even heard that he died. They’d be all, “Hey Jesus, what up?” and Jesus would probably be like, “What up? I DIED yesterday!” and then they’d be all, “Uhh, you look pretty alive to me, dude…” and then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected, and how it was a miracle, and then the dude would be like “Uh okayy, whatever you say, bro…” And he’s not gonna come back on a SATURDAY. Everybody’s busy, doing chores, workin’ the loom, trimmin’ the beard, NO. He waited the exact right number of days, THREE. Plus it’s SUNDAY, so everyone’s in church already, they’re all in there “Oh no, Jesus is DEAD”, then BAM! He bursts through the back door, runs up the aisle, everyone’s totally psyched, and FYI, that’s when he invented the high five. Three days. We wait three days to call a woman, because that’s how long Jesus wants us to wait…. True story. – Barney, HIMYM
