Sunday's New York Times' Magazine has a story about religion encroaching into the workplace. The picture they put on the Web site is of one person sitting at one side of a desk, holding hands with a couple sitting across from him, in prayer. The caption to the picture?
Chuck Ripka, a mortgage banker, asking the Lord (sic) to help Matt and Jaimie Deboer get a good price for their home.
I can see God, as that's happening, checking his prayer voice-mails and thinking to Himself "hmmm, let's see, all those people in Africa are praying to me because they're dying from AIDS, then there's all those poor beat up Iraqi's, and there's a million prayers once again for some food to be put on the table, what to do...what to do? I know, I'll help Matt and Jaimie Doebor get a good price on their home!"
Question- Wouldn't asking for something so trivial as a good price on a home be against the very nature of religion? Would Jesus Do that?
