Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy: “We support biblical families.”

Today’s Chick-fil-A Biblical Family of the Day: True family (Mark 3:31-35).

Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him. A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.”

And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

    I wonder how it is that ‘Brother of God!’ never caught on as an exclamation?

    Sounds like the Real True Biblical family is a family of choice.

    Weirdly, my favourite door-to-door Jehovah’s Witness brought an actual honest-to-God biblical scholar type Witness with him to speak to me today. I put this down to the fact that I have developed an uncomfortable habit of bringing up awkward bits of the Old Testament during our conversations. I just thought I’d mention it because I reckon it’s all the fault of this series. So there.

    I can just see the bumper stickers now: “It’s a family, not a choice!”

    Jehovah’s Witness lie to new converts and I don’t think they realize they are. The Watchtower Organization has them ‘offer a free bible study’. The truth is they offer only a free lifetime of Watchtower publication studies.

    Big difference.

    With this group more lies, half truths, high control techniques and shunning including direct family members, ends up being the end result.

    Beware of this group.

    You know that sounds like pretty much every religious movement or cult that I’ve ever encountered, right? Just substitute Watchtower or Awake with the relevant publication or source of misinformation and you’re good to go. Hell, the only reason this particular guy keeps coming back is because I keep talking to him; he just doesn’t know that the only reason I keep talking to him is because he’s throwing off a truly astonishing Harry Powell* vibe and I’m still working out how to ask him if he’s seen Night of the Hunter and make it sound like it’s part of the conversation.

    *Seriously, the first time he knocked on my door, I looked through the little picture window and saw the word “Love” rapping away. That totally creeped me out for the rest of the day.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses spend a lot of time/words explaining why they are not a cult….. because they are one.
    You say Jesus had his *invisible* second coming in 1914 it’s the basis of all your doctrines.You can’t escape your history any more than Mormons and the Golden plates.

    More have died from JW twisted half-baked ban on blood transfusion than JonesTown and heaven’s gate combined.

    “..If a million people believe in a stupid thing for a hundred years it’s STILL a stupid thing.”(Mark Twain)Jesus second coming in 1914 (Jehovah Witness),Jesus came to America with golden plates (Mormons), Muhammad ascended to heaven on a flying horse (Islam)….

    On the off-chance that’s directed at me, I’m not actually a Jehovah’s Witness: I just talk to the one that keeps knocking on my door. Don’t let that stop you, mind…

    Also, I’d personally be a little wary of criticising the flying horse when one of the central figures in the Bible allegedly ascended on a chariot of fire, pulled by horses of fire, in the midst of a whirlwind. Under the circumstances, only one of these sounds like overkill.
