7 thoughts on “Jesus: The Lost Years/ Episode 13: The Matchmaking Service

  1. LOL, thanks shana for encouraging my madness. But I don’t think Jesus needs to rush anything. He has all the time in outside the world.

    However, since it would increase the attention he would receive, you may have an interesting idea there.

  2. More than a little long.  I normally don’t like to criticize, but isn’t there enough about Jebus and the bible that’s comical on its own without having to make stuff up?

    IMO, a post like this would have benefitted from being a fourth its actual length, and using direct quotes to back up the questions/answers that were actually funny.

    The other one, the campfire story was headed in the right direction until it went off track in this regard.  It’s so much funnier to use the words of the text to your twisted ends, rather than making up stuff wholesale.  It’s the difference between clever satire and common derision.  Derision has an amusing schoolyard quality, but only if you have a crowd of like-minded fellows to help you crow.  Satire can be appreciated by a much wider audience, and can even get people to start thinking.

    Sorry to be dickish, but from what I’ve read from you here, you’re too intelligent to continue along this path.  It’s a waste of insight and talent, and does little credit to you.

  3. Skippy, thanks for your opinions and your estimation of my intelligence. I agree that it was much too long but I’m not going to bother with shortening it and I’m loathe to remove it on principle alone. The good, the bad, the ugly and the “no one can agree just what it is” once here should stay here, in my opinion.

    I tend to doubt my value to SEB constantly these days. Maybe it’s best to just read everyone else for a while. Yeah, that’ll work…

  4. Brock –

    I’m really glad you took my comments in the spirit they were intended, i.e. literary fraternity.  Personally, I love feedback, and probably bad more than good.  When I ask someone to review a short story I’ve penned, nothing is more irritating than to have someone say, “It was great.  Loved it.”  This is usually the case when the reader didn’t get it (which is possibly because I didn’t communicate ‘it’ well enough and thus need to know that), or is trying to avoid hurting my feelings when they really didn’t like it (which again would be nice to know).  Even the most avid fan can find faulty points in a well-written document.

    As to value, who’s to judge?  Summed up, the value of everything I’ve posted here still won’t buy me a cup of coffee.  It likely has zero value to anyone else on an emotional, intellectual, or spiritual (if you believe in that stuff) level.  However, the opportunity to express my own thoughts, receive feedback occasionally, and explore my feelings regarding some of the issues discussed in a forum like this are invaluable to ME.  Reading the views and perspectives of others is very interesting to me, and more than once I’ve saved some information I’ve learned here.  It has also prompted me to research other information on sideline topics that are brought up during the course of a given discussion.  For those reasons, I think everyone’s input is valuable.

    Personally, I tend to enjoy your articles and commentary.  I hope you keep it up.

  5. Brock,

    What Shana said and maybe one on Mohammed and Buddha (providing you are not martyred for that). LOL
