Bible Memes You Never See

Tim's Blog - Just One Train Wreck After Another

I’m thinking of publishing a new Scripture translation. I’m going to call it The Meme Bible.

Meme – a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

Bible – a collection of texts sacred in Judaism and Christianity.

Spend any time on social media and you’ll see memes. Spend time on social media where Christians post their thoughts and you’ll see Bible memes, complete with chapter and verse, offered to inspire and encourage people through the word of God.

Yet I’ve never seen a meme for Job 2:9b. Instead, I see memes like this one on the blessing of abiding in Christ:


And one on the love of God and loving one another:


Notice the pleasant typeface and compelling images. This is typical of Bible memes. They feature rainbows, running horses, storm-tossed seas, and more…

Behold the Coagula


Get Out – I’d heard good things about this movie, but really knew nothing about it other than that it was a horror film (or at least horror-adjacent) and that it dealt with racism. I can’t say I know much about Key and Peele, either. Beth and I finally watched this last night, and I found it effective. There are definitely going to be some significant SPOILERS in here, so proceed with caution.

After an opening scene of a black man being abducted in an affluent suburb, we shift to a white girl named Rose taking her black boyfriend Chris home to meet her family. They turn out to be the sort of people who try to overcompensate for racism by obsessing over how cool black people are. Not only is this uncomfortable for Chris, but he also suspects something sinister is going on when he discovers that the only…

A Broken Heart


The world is stunned by the  deaths of Carrie Fisher at 60 and her mother Debbie Reynolds just one day later.

And it should be.

Carrie’s death was undoubtedly hastened by a combination of mental illness that led to addictive behavior that led to physical damage that made her a likely candidate for the early heart attack that took her life.

Each of those contributory factors run amok in our society-often undiagnosed or untreated because of the stigma attached to them.  She was rich, famous and had lots of resources available to her yet was still unable to escape the clutches of addiction until late in life.

Debbie Reynolds died of a broken heart.  The cause of death may be declared “stroke” but any mama who has buried a child knows full well that the moment they told her about Carrie, her heart gave up.

Mine did when…

Finding a Voice in Your Writing

What is with all the ghost writers on the best seller that a boy list?



Why is it all these best seller guys like Beck, O’Reilly and others talk about their team of people who helped them ghost write their books?  Why are they even touting that they have these best sellers by their own names?  Well, I wrote four books and had no ghost writers, no one to blame for anything I said or did not say….on my own merit.  So did the authors of old.  I say, what is wrong with this picture?  You either authored something on your own or you did not. Geeze…where has the literary world gone?  In the trash or the can of everyone’s opinion approved by the author?  Get real people….why are you reading ghost written garbage?

AGENDA 042214agenda21

UN transforming our world by 2030 with new sustainable development goals.

The establishment elite are working in hyper speed to bring about radical changes nationally and internationally.  At the recent U.N. meeting, the establishment announced their new sustainable development goals to be achieved in less than 15 years from now.  Are you all ready for these radical changes?

These elitists have their agenda all figured out and they need their political puppets in place to carry out their wishes.  When you decode the agenda you see it is very dark and very evil.

Pope Francis is the new point man for the agenda for sustainable development.  At the Recent U.N. talks, the Pope gave his blessing on their new global movement for the benefit of all mankind and encouraged the world to participate in the new U.N. goals to rid poverty. Millions of people are now thinking this is a great thing to do to…

I beg your pardon, but God NEVER promised you a rose garden


“I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”  2 Timothy 4:1-5

If you tune into enough Christian TV these days, you might be led to believe that we can buy our way to health, wealth, happiness, and success. When you listen to many of the televangelists, it would appear that Jesus is the key to being set free from all that is difficult and hard about life.

Word of Faith, Health and Wealth and Name It and Claim It are just some of the names the prosperity gospel goes by. These “gospels” teach that God provides rewards, including personal happiness, financial wealth and physical health for believers who have sufficient faith. Sufficient faith – who or what determines that? Why your level of success of course! The greater your success, the greater your faith must be, or so they say.  And for them, your faith is on a sliding scale – the bigger your “faith” the larger your expected monetary gift should be. The “prosperity theology” in America grew in the last century and has been called a “baptized form of capitalism.”

The doctrines of the Word of Faith are typically acquired by either taking biblical passages out of context or appealing to a “new revelation” from God that “clarifies” or expands what the Bible says. Preachers associated with the movement are some of the most popular with some of the largest mega-churches, best-selling books and television programs. They include Kenneth Copeland, T.D.Jakes, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Meyer, Frederick K. C. Price, Jesse Duplantis, Marilyn Hickey, Robert Tilton and the list goes on.

So tell me, exactly which verses grant hope for new cars, job promotions and good health? I know there are a staggering number of Bible translations out there (which may be part of the confusion), but my Bible tells me that as followers of Christ, we are assured persecution (2 Tim. 3:12) and suffering (Acts 9:16) and are admonished toward self-denial (Mark 8:34).

If You Want To Know The Truth About The Unemployment Rate Read This Article

According to the Obama administration, more than 94 million working age Americans are “not in the labor force”, and so they don’t count as being unemployed…

That people actually believe this crap is alarming.

For My Marine Son


There you stood speaking your oath out loud

With all the others so tall and proud

Swearing the Constitution to uphold

Pledging your allegiance fearless and bold

You left for boot camp raring to go

To get the training to beat the foe

You did not know what lay ahead

Only what you heard, what others said

And then came the day I dreaded most

Your orders to leave your beloved coast

You were headed for danger, into harm’s way

I wanted so badly for you to stay

The morning you left there were stars in the sky

I wanted to hold you, I wanted to cry

But I had to remember you were no longer my pup

And like you, I would “suck it up”

They sent you to a land far, far away

A place called the “sandbox,” a place not to play

They gave you a gun, put it in your hand

Then issued the order to conquer the land

New Rules of Engagement tied your hands

How would you fight upon these sands

You saw your brothers killed in battle

But did not allow your mind to rattle

Through every deployment I was there

Always on my knees, always in prayer

Hoping for safety from place to place

Trusting in God to return you home safe

You did your best, you fought with heart

The time had come for you to depart

Returning home, a dream come true

To the ones you love, and who love you

You look unchanged, yet not the same

The question is, who is to blame

Your lips may smile, but your eyes do not

They reveal the wounds of battles fought

Time lessens the horrors of the war

Memories that remain help soften the scar

What you have done should bring no regret

You did what you had to, we will never forget
