Eating Healthy with Goldfish and Chicken Nuggets

I like to eat healthy–no condiments on my hamburgers or hot dogs, except lettuce and pickles. And instead of Ranch dressing for my chicken nuggets, I choose barbeque sauce, as it is tomato based. See? Healthy yums.


That’s kinda how I feel like when scripture is taken out of context and either posted on a meme or, more recently, quoted to me in response to my opinions. Seems like I inflamed some feelers with my nose piercing post. I knew it would polarize some, but really didn’t expect whiplash and the silent treatment that has trickled down. Who’d have thunk a tiny ol’ stud would stir the pot?

contextThanks Christian Memes for the images!


Suffice to say, I’m not going to skip down the path of scripture quoted to me to point out my shortcomings or my assumed path to lead others astray with my nostril. It was nitpicked for the benefit of presentation of the writer. As Mike Duran points out here, it’s like people quoting Philippians 4:8 for the reason to only have “family-friendly” books, movies and television…conveniently forgetting about all of the gore, torment, sodomy, rape, incest, adultery, destruction, demons, plagues, and catastrophes in Scripture. And please skip over the Song of Solomon.

Come on, son! That’s like me telling Thing 2 that she’s fulfilling scripture every morning:


If you need to fling scriptures at me to change my mind about piercings and my short hair, feel free. I hope it makes you feel better. Then go ahead and read my equally out-of-context Romans 14:10 and Romans 12:14. Or don’t because you’re not used to a swinging door that smacks you in the butt. (oooh, I used a sissy-swear word there…)


And Goldfish crackers aren’t healthy, but they are tasty goodness with a smile.


About sarahb5149

When tasked with how to describe myself, I get quiet, leading people to believe that I am trying to come up with something deep and meaningful. In fact, I am trying to decide which to display without confusing them. I'm a Christian. And that doesn't mean that I simply say it - I love the Lord and have figured out over the years that He knows what He's doing, even when I am stomping my feet or looking at Him like I have no clue what is going on (*hint* it happens more than I'd care to admit). Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a wee lil' thing; I kept my first poem in all of it's stammering, unevenness. Wife and mom, daughter and sister, aunt and Sunday School teacher, I adore the roles that God has given me. A bit of a sci-fi nerd, geek and self proclaimed dork, there isn't much that I won't try at least once...unless it involves mayonnaise because that stuff is just gross. View all posts by sarahb5149
