    Laid behind the stone. You lived to die. Rejected and alone. Like a rose. Trampled on the ground. You took the fall. And thought of me, above all.

    The saddest day for an atheist is the day he has something to be thankful for, but no one to thank.

    There once was a man named George Thomas, pastor in a small New England town. One Easter Sunday morning he came to the Church carrying a rusty, bent, old bird cage, and set it by the pulpit. Eyebrows were raised and, as if in response, Pastor Thomas began to speak...'I was walking through town yesterday when I saw a young boy coming toward me swinging this bird cage. On the bottom of the cage were three little wild birds, shivering with cold and fright. I stopped the lad and asked, 'What you got there, son?' 'Just some old birds,' came the reply.

    'What are you gonna do with them?' I asked.

    'Take 'em home and have fun with 'em,' he answered 'I'm gonna tease 'em and pull out their feathers to make 'em fight. I'm gonna have a real good time'

    'But you'll get tired of those birds sooner or later. What will you do?'

    'Oh, I got some cats,' said the little boy. 'They like birds. I'll take 'em to them.'

    The pastor was silent for a moment. 'How much do you want for those birds, son?'

    'Huh?? !!! Why, you don't want them birds, mister. They're just plain old field birds. They don't sing. They ain't even pretty!'

    'How much?' the pastor asked again.

    The boy sized up the pastor as if he were crazy and said, '$10?'

    The pastor reached in his pocket and took out a ten dollar bill. He placed it in the boy's hand. In a flash, the boy was gone.

    The pastor picked up the cage and gently carried it to the end of the alley where there was a tree and a grassy spot Setting the cage down, he opened the door, and by softly tapping the bars persuaded the birds out, setting them free.

    Well, that explained the empty bird cage on the pulpit, and then the pastor began to tell this story.

    One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was gloating and boasting. 'Yes, sir, I just caught the world full of people down there. Set me a trap, used bait I knew they couldn't resist. Got 'em all!'

    'What are you going to do with them?' Jesus asked.

    Satan replied, 'Oh, I'm gonna have fun! I'm gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other, how to hate and abuse each other, how to drink and smoke and curse. I'm gonna teach them how to invent guns and bombs and kill each other. I'm really gonna have fun!'

    'And what will you do when you get done with them?' Jesus asked. 'Oh, I'll kill 'em,' Satan glared proudly. 'How much do you want for them?' Jesus asked

    'Oh, you don't want those people. They ain't no good. Why, you'll take them and they'll just hate you. They'll spit on you, curse you and kill you. You don't want those people!!'

    'How much?' He asked again.

    Satan looked at Jesus and sneered, 'All your blood, tears and your life.'

    Jesus said, 'DONE!'

    Then He paid the price.

    The pastor picked up the cage he opened the door and he walked from the pulpit.

    Notes: Isn't it funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.

    Isn't it funny how someone can say 'I believe in God' but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also 'believes' in God).

    Isn't it funny how you can send a thousand jokes, even nasty ones through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing?

    God bless and help us all

    Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
    PROF: Yes.
    Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
    PROF: Yes.
    Student: No sir. There isn't.
    (The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
    Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. (There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
    Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
    PROF: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
    Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light.... But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
    PROF: So what is the point you are making, young man?
    Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
    PROF: Flawed? Can you explain how?
    Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
    PROF: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
    Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
    (The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
    Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
    (The class is in uproar.)
    Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? (The class breaks out into laughter.)
    Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it?.....No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
    (The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)
    PROF: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
    Student: That is it sir... The link between man & God is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive.

    NB: I believe you have enjoyed the conversation...and if'll probably want your friends/colleagues to enjoy the same...won't you? ...forward them to increase their knowledge...Have a nice day...

    You didn’t do anything to earn God’s love and nothing you do can make Him love you less. He is love.
