(My wrap-up and personal application for 1 Timothy in the School of Biblical Studies, University of the Nations.)
I had a friend in high school who upon hearing the phrase, “Oh, gawwwwd,” would always, every time, she never missed a beat, the second it came out of someone’s mouth retort, “He’s my God, too.”
Used to drive us nuts.
We’d roll our eyes and twist our necks as we looked her up and down, trying to find one iota of evidence to let us know that maybe, just maybe, she was just kidding. Eventually, we thought she would break, join the status quo, take up with those of us who took the Lord’s name in vain every single day, probably at least once an hour.
