The Zombie Test

Zombie_Cartoon_Boy-1-300x320Zombies are really big these days.

To be honest, I don’t understand the sudden popularity of Zombies. Zombies are self –centered. They don’t respect the ideas of other people. They make bad decisions and they never think about their future.  They mindlessly follow the mob without asking questions. I have never encountered a real Zombie, so I don’t know this for sure, but I get the feeling that they don’t smell very good.

I’m pretty sure that Zombies do not read the Bible. If they just read Galatians 5:15 they would figure it out.

“If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”

The bottom line – Zombies do not make good friends. So, why do Zombies have so many followers on Twitter? (Just a word of advice. It’s not a good idea to follow a Zombie. If he turns around, you’re in trouble.)

I may never get the Zombie thing, but I do have this figured out. The goal in the Zombie Apocalypse, even for Zombie fans, is to not become a Zombie.

For the benefit of all humanity, I thought I would come up with a short Zombie quiz to see if you are in danger of ever becoming a Zombie.

1)    Do you enjoy eating a lot of raw fish?

2)    Are you following Justin Bieber on Twitter?

3)    Do you skip chapter five when reading Galatians?

4)    Do you find yourself frequently forgetting to shower?

5)    Do you have unfulfilled dreams?

I can’t really help with the first four questions, but I can help with #5.

Are there things that you want to do that you haven’t done yet?

As long as you have a dream you are alive. When you stop dreaming, you start dying.

We are starting a new Mentorship Group on Putting Your Dreams to the Test.  Whether you have lost sight of an old dream or are searching for a new one this teaching will help you develop a step-by-step action plan. This Group starts Feb 27. For more info click here.

If you live in the twin cities area I will be teaching on Dreams at Family Church on Sunday nights at 6:30 PM. The meeting lasts for one hour and is in a small group format with time for questions and Starbucks coffee.
