Joseph, for real?

My wife is pregnant!

Uh, but I’m not the father.

No, she didn’t sleep with anyone else. I’m serious. An angel told her God got her pregnant.

If these were Joseph’s status updates, I wonder how the “FaceBook Christians” of his day would have commented. I mean, when you really think about it, so much of what we subscribe to as Believers we may never believe if we re-lived it in 2010. It’s crazy!

Tell me what your comments would be to Joe on FaceBook. No, seriously.

Then check out these two social media Christmas Story videos. ch:

    I have thought about this a lot actually…from Mary’s end though! Like, seriously if while Joel and I were engaged, I came home proclaiming during a 33 Live meeting that the Holy Spirit got me pregnant in my last semester at Elim…what the heck would you all have done?? I don’t think I would have been worship department head… 🙂

    My comment to Joseph: “Little too much wine at the last wedding Joe”. 🙂

    • Ha, I like that. And too true on the pregnancy issue; I doubt any church would put Mary (or Joseph “the liar”) in a place of leadership.

    Well- If I knew the character of Mary and Joseph I would like to think that like Elizabeth I would have believed ( besides tha fact that her own unborn child bore witness to this ) ….But if I knew nothing of them – I would be a skeptic for sure……Comment to Joeseph on Fb ….hmmmmmmm

    • Good call on actually knowing people first hand; that certainly adds credibility. (Unless of course you know your close friends are whackos!). lol I’m still waiting for your FaceBook comment…

  • reenie

    hmmmmmm ……. was my comment to Joseph…… as in hmmmmmm yea okay……… not a big one for knocking people down – even if I don’t think they REALLY heard from God – the skeptical Hmmmmmmmm – did that make sence????

  • Heh, maybe you all are just that different from me, but if I heard that?

    I’d say, or I assume so(how can I really know, right?) “Let’s get together and talk”. I hate doing things that are like that on FB, gotta keep it grounded in reality.
