"All things are cause for either laughter or weeping."- Seneca

SO. . . . . I happened to be at the dollar store last weekend, and I came across a package of various bible themed card and trivia games, and since we are studying the Old Testament in our Sunday school class, I decided some of my friends who are teachers of this class could benefit from something of this nature, especially since sometimes that particular block of church can use a little something to get people to participate.

Now the quality of things purchased at the dollar store is never very top notch, because it's THE DOLLAR STORE, but little did I know what a gem of an investment I was making!

I decided to keep for myself the "Bible Trivia Flash Cards" mainly because this picture of Christ was on the cover. . . . . .so I knew what was inside had to be good!

Why does The Saviour only have four fingers in this picture? (PS this card's question on the front says "Jesus rose form the dead in how many days?" if you were curious.)

OK Here's the question for the next card. . . . . . .

What did Jesus do for Lazarus?

What has two thumbs and was resurrected. . . . . This Guy!!!
Who was in the Belly of the Whale?

Nice Goggles Jonah. . . . .and was that the belly or the blow hole?
Who were the first humans?

Wait, wasn't the snake the bad guy in this story. . . . I wanna take this snake home, he doesn't not look like a threat to my salvation at all!!!!
Who was turned into a pillar of salt for looking back at Sodom and Gomorrah (spelled Gamora on the card. . . . not that I'm one to judge about spelling, but it just adds to the credibility)?

Get it? she's a salt shaker?. . . . . . just plain silly is what this is!
I saved the best one for last. . . . let's see if you have the same reaction I did!
Which disciple betrayed Jesus?

Does this shot make you as uncomfortable as it did me?

I cannot understand what made the creators of this game think, this picture didn't look a little shifty. . . . but then again they did only give Christ 4 fingers. . . . . oh silly dollar store game!
Anyway, I just thought I'd share with you this amazing find, it made me laugh, and I hope it did the same for you!
Peace Out!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
