Shout out for Stuff Christians Like

You don't really have to shout, literally. I might though.

SCL is a blog that I follow (see right column, under "These People Inspire Me"). It is written by a guy named Jon Acuff who basically loves to show the humor in a lot of things that Christians like or have come up with, most of which have nothing to do with God and what really matters. At times, Jon ties his humor into a larger lesson on life in a powerful way.

But not today.

Today, those of us who read his blog and also have a blog have the opportunity to take part in one of his satirical posts. The title is:

The “Is that contestant on American Idol a Christian?" Scorecard

I do this. I watch Idol and then try to guess who is winning because they are being prayed for by a mega church backing them somewhere in the U.S. Not really, but I have to admit I do get a little excited when a contestant says they led their youth choir at church, or sings "Jesus Take the Wheel" during the competition. It's a fun game and you should try it. Thankfully, Science (ie. Jon Acuff) has come up with a more accurate way to find out if your favorite contestant loves the Lord with all his/her heart.

Basically, you can score your favorite contestant by adding up points based on the answers to the questions on the scorecard.....each blog participating is posting one question. I was given this one:

103. The contestant somehow finds a way to slam the book, “Golden Compass” during one of their interviews = +3 points

To add up your score with over a 130 other ideas on this scorecard, visit stuffchristianslike.net.

And if you're in the mood for some seriously funny stuff, read Jon's words on:
Deep V-neck syndrome and Skipping parts of the Bible

If you'd just prefer the serious, try:
Thinking you're naked and Getting wrecked by these two words

Hope you enjoy!


  1. I'm visiting all the other hosts of Jon's blog tour. Just want to say that your blog is beautiful, both visually and textually (I know that's not really a word, but hopefully you know what my tired brain is trying to say.) You write beautifully. Thanks for sharing. Tonja (#122 on Jon's list)

  2. Thanks, Tonja! That was so sweet of you to comment. I haven't had the time yet to go through all the blogs that participated, but I plan to! Glad you stopped by. LP
