What does the Bible teach about when and how to genuflect?
What does the Bible have to do with it? Ann’s the Official Pontificator of Phariseeville. Ain’t that authoritative ‘nuff for you? Get with the program. Genuflect to Ann. No, prostrate yourself before her. Bow and scrape and grovel for
the Messiah-ess and the Popess all rolled into one.
Don’t you dare disagree with her.
Actually, the Bible guys tended to go more for prostration, falling totally flat on their faces before Almighty God. Since they thought that was normal, you guys who think a little baby step like genuflection is foreign to the Bible probably should start practicing prostration in your worship services.
As I recall, in the tiny Fundamentalist Church I grew up in, we knelt to pray during Wednesday night prayer meetings and on other occasions. Too bad we weren’t following the Bible but were adding human sinful traditions. If only we had prayed while prostrate. Then, like you, we’d have been true Bible Believers.
Since I’m sure you, being a real Bible follower, prostrate yourself every ten minutes in Church, could you give me some tips on how you get the grime out of your Sunday go-to-meetn’ clothes? Oh, I forgot, that’s not in the Bible either. But then neither does it say in the Bible that we should wear flip-flops and shorts and sit in theater-seats like the Willow Creek super-evangelist Christians do.
I’ll just stick with a few genuflections, I guess.
Just curious. How do you do your prostrations, being Biblical and all, in those theater seats??
Did they have theater seats on Mars Hill or in that Church Ephesus (was it Ephesus) where the guy fell out of the window listening to St. Paul?
And where in the Bible does it say anything about projecting ditties onto screens with computers so everyone can sing along with the Praise Band?
Having said that, I think the Pope has mobility issues and Ann's hysteria is way out of line.
