One of the definitions of gospel is “a thing that is absolutely true.”
I love this cartoon, because it’s really funny. In fact, I’ve used it in pretty high-powered business meetings as a “stopping idea.” We often need to have something surprise us into stopping long enough to question our thinking. This funny cartoon does that, in part, because it’s so funny.
Which begs the question:Do we find this cartoon (used with my permission after scanning our own, personal-use, refridgerator magnet) so funny because it presents a belief we recognize lots of people hold as true…even self-evident?
Which begs another question: How often are we one of those “lots of people”?
Engage here. What do you think about Homer’s Gospel? Why? And who do you know that may need to question this belief?
