Father and Son Interpret the Bible
A young boy had just got his driver's permit and inquired of
his father, an
evangelist, if they could discuss the use of the car. His
father took him to
the study and said to the boy, "I'll make a deal with you,
bring your grades up from a C to a B-average, study your
Bible a little, and
get your hair cut and we'll talk about the car."
Well, the boy thought about that for a moment and decided
that he'd best settle for the offer, and they agreed. After
about six weeks the boy came back and again asked his father
about the car.
Again, they went to the study where his father said, "Son,
I've been real proud of you. You've brought your grades up,
and I've observed that you've been
studying your Bible and participating a lot more in the
Bible study class on
Sunday morning. But I'm real disappointed since you haven't
got your hair cut."
The young man paused a moment and then said, "You know dad,
I've been thinking about that and I've noticed in my studies
of the Bible that Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair,
Baptist had long hair, and there's even strong argument that
Jesus himself had long hair."
To which his father replied, "You're right, son. Did you
also notice that they all WALKED everywhere they went?"
