ADD YOUR LIGHTBULB FUNNIES to the COMMENTS!

How many TV Evangelists does it take a change a lightbulb?
Just the one, but send your money now to 1800 181 181. You heard it right, 1800 181 181.

How many Pentecostals does it take to change a lightbulb?
One to change the lightbulb and 15 to pray in tongues and ask for the light's healing

How many Salvos does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just the one. Remember what William Booth said, 'Go for lightbulbs and go for the worst.'

How many Anglicans does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just the one, but the 20-strong vestry must agree on the change first.

How many Catholics does it take to change a lightbulb?
None, they use candles.

How many Politicians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Well, who knows, it's not like any of them tell us the truth.

How many Theologians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Maybe the question isn't even about lightbulbs. Maybe lightbulbs are just a metaphor for something much deeper.

How many Preachers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Look, seriously it's been 30 minutes, and you haven't even got to the point where it's about the lightbulb.

None. They're post-bulbs.

How many Evangelicals does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just the one, but first you have to realise you are not a perfect lightbulb. Second you need to admit your failure to be a good lightbulb. Thirdly, you must seek the light from the one who gives light, to create in you a new lightbulb.

How many Calvanists does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just the one who is chosen.

Finally...

How many Christians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Well, if the lightbulb represents the world, then it takes Christians to be united together, with Christ at the centre, empowered by the Holy Spirit and focused on living out God's mission in the world to make the best possible change.

We can make the change. The lightbulb is depending on us.
