What religious analogies have you heard or read? I'd like to hear about analogies that people have read, heard, or made that are from "real life" situations. I can't think of any myself right now, so please comment. =)

Hmmm... that's about all I can think of posting about (and, in fact, I posted absolutely nothing). Anyway, I shall refrain from rambling.

I just thought of one. It's actually from the Bible.

Jeremiah 2: 11-13 (NIV)

Has a nation ever changed its gods? (Yet they are not gods at all.) But my people have exchanged their Glory for worthless idols. Be appalled at this, O heavens, and shudder with great horror," declares the Lord. "My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.

Dude, i think in analogies... like i'm constantly comparing real-life situations with their comparable scenarios... So i could give you like 10,000 analogies right now, but i don't feel like typing that much - narrow your request down; and try again :-P

Hmmm... how about this: analogies that have to do with salvation or sanctification.

Umm . . . I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but last night I was washing dishes, particularly my grandmother's George Foreman grill, which is a beast to clean. So I was scrubbing it for about 10 minutes, and I thought, "This is what God's doing with me. He'll cleanse one area in my life, then there's another to deal with, then another, then another. But in the end I will be beautifully, sparkling clean." Yeah.

Wesley said...

Yep! That is the kinda thing I was talking about.

In regards to life, that'd be a really big pile of dishes, though... =P

Thanks, Marissa!

haha, it would.
