Christian Humor

Can such a thing really exist? I think so!

As a Christian man since 1985, I find humor lacking in church circles. Honestly, a lot of us could stand to lighten up. Evidently I’m not alone with this thought.

The Babylon Bee, your trusted source for Christian news satire, is a fresh offering as of 2016. Take a look at their front page today:

Today’s Babylon Bee Christian Satire Webpage. Way too funny!

According to Wikipedia,

The Babylon Bee is a satirical evangelical Christian website. It was created by Adam Ford,[1][2] and was launched on March 1, 2016.[3] It models itself on The Onion.[4]

As is true with any steady humor attempts, things might get edgy. They have received some criticism for a topic or two that might have pushed the limits too far, but I’m going to say that for the moment, I love the majority of what they are doing.

The headline “Nation Shocked, Horrified As Christians Hold Christian Position” got my attention. Follow that link and read the great take they have over the witch hunt occurring over this Waco couple attending a church that holds traditional Christian values. I couldn’t help but laugh quit hard on that one.

Ever think the music on a “Christian” music station can be repetitive? Then follow that link, it is satire at its best. Ever fallen asleep during a sermon? You need to read that one! Ever feel like a church is a bit too stiff? Then you need to read that one! Ever heard a scripture used in a way you thought was just odd? You REALLY need to read that one!

I tell you what, a few of them were a bit edgy for my taste, but not too many. I found most of the jokes and news articles (all satire that I read) quite tasty and well done, well deserved, and I hope Adam Ford can remain humble, focused, and that success won’t go to his head nor change his direction.

We need a good dose of humor in America today. The church has needed a witty take on church life for a very long time. Folks, now you have a place to go
