THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
If you're gonna live in the South, ya gotta learn how to speak "redneck."
For instance, here are just two words we use often in the South, and
the manner in which we use them.
BARD - verb. Past tense of the infinitive "to borrow."
Usage: "My brother bard my pickup truck."
JAWJUH - noun. A highly flammable state just north of Florida.
Usage: "My brother from Jawjah bard my pickup truck."
You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase,
"One nation, under God.."
You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing
the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You might be a redneck if: You actually bow your head when someone prays.
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
You might be a Christian if you actually believe that "God is greatly to be feared!"
God is to be held in awesome reverence at all times!
He is the Creator, Sustainer and Eternal Judge of all mankind!
His Holy Name is NOT to be used in slang expletives!
You might be a Christian if your reverence for God causes you to join in
"the assembly of the saints."
This is a holy assembly, church, wherein those who love God gather to worship Him.
In this assembly, we learn more of God through studying His Holy Word.
When we depart from this assembly, we share the truth of Christ with others.
And, we desire to return to this assembly as soon as possible.
You might also be a Christian if you believe that God is to be reverenced by
"all them that are about Him."
For instance, You exhibit respect for those around you in church by being quiet and prayerful
during the invitation.
People may be struggling with the greatest decision of their lives.
You might also remain quiet, or even bow your head, when someone prays before
their meal at a restaurant.
Praise God for "rednecks" who are actually Christians.
They don't mind standing UP for what's right, and standing AGAINST what is wrong.
