"This Explains a Lot" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
This would explain a lot. Like...
Why God doesn't answer prayer.
Why there is the problem of evil in the world.
Why we no longer feel his presence.
Why he doesn't seem to pay attention.
Why he might as well not exist.
Why we get addicted to our cellphones (the trickle-down effect).
Why our cellular bills are so high (cuz he can afford it).
Well... what else would this explain?
There's the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal I've always enjoyed in 1 Kings 18. But in this story Elijah taunts the false prophets by saying, ‚ÄúShout louder! Surely he is a god! Perhaps he is deep in thought, or busy, or traveling. Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened.‚Äù Apparently the original Hebrew suggests that Elijah said "Maybe he's going to the bathroom!"
Anyway... now he could perhaps say, "Maybe he's on his cellphone!"
Not that there's anything inherently evil or even wrong with technology. I appreciate it (he says as he types on his macbook).
But it certainly can get in the way of life.
