i started a joke

truman-showdo you ever have the feeling that the whole world is playing a joke on you?  like one of those truman show kind of moments where you feel like the whole world is in on a secret that you’re not a part of.  all of humanity is playing some kind of prank on you and they’re getting a good laugh at your expense.  i know this sounds all conspiracy theory and all, but what if…?

i always thought about what if cars don’t really need gas and it’s just a ploy from oil companies to make a profit.  with the obvious fact that cars have run out of gas in the past out of the picture.  we were only told that our cars need gas to run and if we’re good motorists, we kept our tank full.  but what if?  what if we let that gas tank run out?  and what if we found that our cars would still run long long after the gas light came on?  tell me i’m not the only one who thinks of these things.

what if the world was keeping you from something?  and everyone on earth knew about it except for you.  i think i’d want to know what it was.  i wasn’t gonna go here, but now that i think about it, it kinda makes sense…  maybe that’s what Jesus is like.  some people are blissfully unaware that there are whole cultures and worlds that are totally transformed by Jesus while they are in their own bubble totally unaware of something that could change their life forever.  i’d think i’d want to know what that something is.

  1. i had this irrational thought when i was in the choir: what if i’m a tonedeaf who couldn’t hear her own out-of-tune-voice? what if fellow singers hear that but don’t tell me cuz they’re worried that they might hurt my feelings? what if the whole world knows that i’m tonedeaf but i had no one to break that news to me? i think that thought went on for couple weeks in my mind.
    Jesus story makes sense. i’m with ya on the last sentence. if i were to switch roles though.. i’d be the one who would be sensitive about bursting those people’s bubbles, thinking that i might cross their line one way or another. ironic and sad. i need to change.

  2. Once in a while, in my mind I think: What if the Bible is just a made up story to control human behavior? What if Jesus isn’t the son of God?
