Funny Mistakes Connected in Various Ways with Religious Activity

One who pursues the Bible can slip up in embarrassing ways every bit as much as the next guy. Let me give you four examples that took place in different scenarios.

One teenage girl, during an interactive meeting part was reading a Bible text that listed actions displeasing to God. It mentioned intimate relations outside the marriage bond. She read the words, "and sexual immortality ... " Politely, no one laughed, but I would suggest changing that phrase to sexual immorality !

At a convention of thousands in one state of the U.S., the speaker talked about a deep-sea squid having "giant testicles." Oh my! I was not there. I don't know how many may have laughed. But in a crowd of thousands, you know there surely must have been! Try restating that expression as "giant tentacles ."

In conversing with one householder who'd lost a family member, feelings of sorrow were expressed over the man's dying of prostrate cancer. Now you know what prostrate cancer is, don't you? It's the kind of cancer that makes you lie down so you are prostrate. No, no, no. What was meant was prostate cancer, not prostrate cancer.

And finally, a new Bible student who learned to read in order to better understand Scripture, misspelled a word in an email to me. He couldn't join me that day because he had to tend to his garden. Among the vegetables he had planted, he said, was kohlrabi. Only he spelled it cold rabbi . I suggested he'd want to keep the poor religious leader on ice.

And I'll bet the speaker was informed of the error afterward! The photo of his face when he found out would have been priceless.

I can just imagine that! LOL. I was at a talk one time where the speaker made an unintentional howler. I will not repeat it on here, however, I was the only female present and everyone else in the audience turned to see how I was reacting!
