Just For Fun - Ten Ways to Know You Are a Baptist

Normally, I would post a link to an interesting list of items. However, today I am going to post the list right here. In full disclosure, these items are not original to me; I found them posted on a Facebook group that I frequent. Please keep in mind these are intended to be satirical.

The list appears in no particular order.

Ten Ways to Know You Are a Baptist
  • You sleep better in church than you do at home.
  • You start packing up as soon as the last blank on the notes sheet is filled in.
  • You call everyone "Brother" or "Sister" because you can't remember their names.
  • Your 3-year-old yells "Amen!" at random times.
  • All your female friends go to college for their MRS degree.
  • You post pictures of your new Bible on Facebook.
  • You use the NIV as a doormat.
  • Fire and brimstone are all you want to hear in your sermons.
  • Going to the movies is a sin, but you make sure the movie is in your Netflix queue.
  • Your definition of "fellowship: involves fried chicken at a potluck dinner.

If you have anything to add to the list, please do so below. Enjoy!
