    Brittvan22, I am a Holy Roller Christian, I even preach and teach every Sunday and I truly love it.

    But I have to empathize with my atheist brothers and sisters whom I love so dearly. They must think that our turning bread and wine into Christ is just about the funniest thing ever.

    For me, well it is sad but I do not have one I think is funny, because I empathize with whoever holds the superstition.
    But I truly do look forward to answers here as with writers there must be some doozeys.
    Great Question

      Lol, I do as well. Martin Luther would argue the point of the real presence of Christ in the elements. I went to seminary and I think have to interesting points I hubbed on some of my exegetical work.

      Brittvan22, I wonder at the wisdom of the writers of our Gospels when the edited out all the deep belly laughs Christ must have had. I know he has a great sense of humor, because he laughs with me all day long. Maybe those old guys were superstitious

    this question brings to mind a conversation i had with a cousin one day. it was friday the thirteenth, and i mentioned that i was not superstitious so that day didnt bother me, in fact i considered it my lucky day. he looked at me with a smirk and said "so you arent superstitious, eh"? i had to stop a minute and figure out what he was getting at...then it dawned on me what i said was being just as superstitious as those who considered it a bad day, lol.
