"Sometimes the light’s all shining on me, Other times I can barely see, Lately it occurs to me, What a long strange trip it’s been…" - Truckin' by The Grateful Dead
Fitting theme for Matt, I believe.
The trouble I have with Matt and other Christians like him, who can't say a sentence without using the word God several times really get on my nerves and remind me of that old parable of the poor widow and her offering of two coins.
#90. The Poor Widow's Offering (Luke 20:45-21:4) -- JesusWalk
They remind me of all those evangelical preachers who claim family values and morality and yet live like rock stars on their churches offerings and have affairs with their followers and their wives.Quote:
 While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples,  "Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.  They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."
I am much more impressed with those who do follow the commandments quietly and help others without telling everyone in earshot that they are doing so.
I hope Matt just goes away, quietly.
I start by admitting that I know anything about Bible quotes,or the Bible itself. However, this is a great thought for people to go through life with. Never met any religions preacher that wasnt a pious, self-adulating, clown.
Someone help me out here ... I swear I saw Matt on some CMT show last night, kissing a girl who was making a music video. He seemed to be acting in the video (they kept cracking up while kissing and couldn't get the take) and I only saw him for a few moments - the rest of the show was about the contest this girl and some others were in to get their video made. I'm not sure what the show is; I never watch CMT but was flipping through and thought I saw Matt so had to stop. I wonder when this show was done? Does anyone else know about it too, or was I not only flipping through, but maybe flipping out?? :)
That show is CMT Superstar and making a video was the challenge for each of the final three. Was that really Matt? It didn't click with me. Anyway, she was thrown off and the show continues with two guys for the Finale.
