More on Christian Pumpkins

Sometimes you can carry an analogy only so far before it becomes ludicrous:

Christians are like Jack O' Lanterns:

God picks you from the pumpkin patch and brings you into his home. He washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. He cuts off the top and takes out all the yucky stuff on the inside. He removes the seeds of sinfulness and carves you a new smiling face. He puts his light inside of you to shine for all to see.You can either stay outside and rot on the vine or have Jesus come inside and become something new and bright!

The idea of God taking a big chef's knife, cutting a hole in the top of my head, scooping out the brains and whatever else is in there, and sticking a lit candle in and putting my head out on the porch for passing trick-or-treaters to see is macabre AND hilarious.

Thankfully we didn't end up with any of those in Emily's basket, but a couple of other people I know here encountered them. Argh.
