I need some Axe Body Spray to grind. I know that the phrase is an ax to grind but I don’t own an ax. I also kind of think that people that own axes are one step away from becoming the main character to a horror movie.
Even though I don’t own an ax I do know some guys who believe that women will throw themselves at them, even if they stank, if they spray on some stanky stuff called Axe.I need some of this stuff to grind because I’ve got an issue.
My issue is that for years Christians have been allowing Satan and the world to steal things that belong to God. Music was God’s idea. Sure some have used to spread filthy messages but music itself is not wrong. I’ve been to churches though that boycotted drums in the church because drums = the Devil’s music.
Dancing was God’s idea. In fact the Bible even talks about dancing before the Lord. Today people put on their Axe body spray and grind on one another. Because of some dirty dancing there are churches that have banned it completely. In fact I couldn’t have my wedding reception at the church I got married at because they wouldn’t allow my wife to do the father/daughter dance.
Movies are made by people but the Bible says that all good gifts come from God. I’m giving God the credit for movies because they are awesome. Along come Rated R movies and what do some Christians do? Boycott em. The college I went to gave out reps if you saw an R Rated movie. They held onto this rule up until Mel Gibson screwed up their legalism by making The Passion of the Christ Rated R.
The point is that Christians allow the Devil and the world to steal things and their response is to boycott. I’m not down with that. I say that if it’s good then let’s steal it back. I know that some people feel that Halloween is the Devil’s holiday, but who created days? God! God created the days of the week and I’m stealing October 31 back from Devil.
Even though my twins are only seven months old we are celebrating Halloween with them. We are dressing them up. We are using this day as a reason to hang out with my family. We are using it as an excuse to eat some yummy candy. We are using this day to create memories. We are Christians and we celebrate this day in a way that honors God.
So that’s my grinded Axe Body Spray and I’m sticking to it. Are you dressing up for Halloween? If so what are you dressing up as? If not what is your favorite candy?
