Hannahisms Part Deux

Someone confronted me yesterday on the fact that I haven't posted in a while. Cut me some slack... it's the end of the semester, which means two things: First, my brain is so chock full of unoriginal information that I couldn't come up with an original thought to post if I tried. Secondly, Hebrew is hard. I just walked out of an exam where the whole test demanded that I translate one of the minor prophets. Suffice it to say that Jonah wasn't the only person struggling to stay above sea level.

I'll be back around once I purge some of the material from my brain and get the opportunity to think clearly again. But for now, here are a few more Hannahisms. For the full story on Hannahisms, see my first post on Hannahisms here.

1. If God speaks to you outside the Bible, it's private conversation - stop telling me about it and keep it to yourself.

2. You can only be direct in peoples' lives to the point that they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you love them.

3. The difference between philosophy and theology is that one has reason, the other has verses.

4. A saint is not a person without problems. A saint is a person who doesn't allow his problems to abort his ministry.

5. If you have a system that answers all the questions, you have a man made system and left God out.

6. You can preach a weak gospel and get converts. But weak converts attract wolves.

7. If God is not doing something, I'm going to rest, because He will start doing something soon and I want to be awake. It isn't my job to manufacture something for God.

8. I'm sick and tired of sermons that give me five ways to be a better husband. Preach Christ and in the depths of His forgiveness I'll love my wife.

9. Why do we read books? Before you can find your prince, you have to kiss a lot of frogs.

10. I can't dance. I'm an exegete. When everyone else is moving, I'm trying to discern what the meaning of "right" is, and everyone leaves me behind.
