God Was Busy!

I received this from a friend and thought it was pretty good.

GOD was Busy:

A United States Marine was attending some college courses between assignments. He had
completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of the ACLU. One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, "God, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform.? I'll give you exactly 15 minutes."

The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am God. I'm still waiting."

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking him off the platform . The professor was out cold. The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently. The
other students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence.?

The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, "What is the matter with you? Why did you do that?"

The Marine calmly replied, "God was very busy today protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an idiot. So, He sent me."

Matthew 15 v.10-11: "And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man."

Mark 7 v.20: "And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man."

It would be much better for some people to stay quiet than to open their mouths and let the whole world know how foolish they really are.

We should be very careful what we ask for and say, we just might get our wish!

Until the Shout,
Country Mama

Your right. The sad part is that there are people who are actually foolish enough to to act this way.
The Lord help them!
