Playing Balderdash with Jesus
Our family likes to play the game Balderdash. The idea is that you are given a word or a movie title or a name and you have to make up a definition for the word, or say what the movie is about, or tell who the person is. The world plays Balderdash with Jesus. People make things up about Him, but these fictional versions of Jesus are unworthy of our worship. If Jesus is really God incarnate, then our failure to acknowledge that might have eternal consequences. Today’s passage intends to clear this up.
