YOGI BERRA AND CHRISTIANITY

Well, it's almost World Series time again. And with that, I was thinking of Yogi Berra the other day. Yogi played for the New York Yankees and was noted for saying many things that never really made sense.  Things such as:

*"I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting."
*"Nobody goes to the restaurant anymore, it's just too crowded."
*"It gets late early out here."
*"I really didn't say everything I said."
*"Baseball is 90% mental. The other half is physical."
*"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."
*"It's deja vu all over again."
*"I usually take a two hour nap from one o'clock to four."
*On being asked why Johnny Bench hit more homeruns than he did: "Most of his homeruns were hit on artificial turf."
*On being told by the wife of New York Mayor John V. Lindsay that he looked cool despite
the heat: "You don't look so hot, either."
*"Eighty percent of putts that fall short never go in."

Well, some of these sayings you have to think about. And some of them just plain don't make any sense whatsoever. They're confusing. Is that what the gospel has come to these days? So many people saying so many confusing things on salvation and other doctrinal issue that people just walk away scratching their head as if they had been in a conversation with Yogi Berra. I Corinthians 14:33 says, "For God is not the author of confusion. . . " Could it be that the reason there is so much religious chaos in the world is because  people aren't reading their Bibles? How about making a real effort to study this week? I mean if the people don't want to read God's Word, nobody's going to stop them! (Think about that one)
