Laughter is Good for the Heart

Every parent, pastor, and children’s Bible teacher knows to expect the unexpected when kids answer questions. You can just imagine how people responded as children gave the following ‘insights’ on Biblical matters. Laughter really is good for the heart and soul. And you can’t make this stuff up! Some are classic and others recent, but there’s plenty of laughter to go around.

Lughter is good for the heart

Laughter Does Good, as a Medicine 

The first book of the Bible is Guinessis, in which Adam & Eve were created from an apple tree.
Joan of Ark was Noah’s wife.
Mt. Cyanide is where Moses got the 10 Commandments
Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.
Lot’s wife was a pillar of salt by day and a ball of fire by night.
Unleavened bread is bread made without ingredients.
Solomon had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.
The 7th commandment is: Thou shalt not admit adultery.
Joshua let the Hebrew in the battle of Geritol.
David fought the Finkelsteins. They lived in Biblical times.
Jesus was born because Mary had an immaculate contraption.
The people who followed Jesus were called the 12 decibels.
The Apostles were all married. Their wives were called Epistles.
Matthew was one of the opossums.
Paul preached holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage.
A Godly man has only one wife. This is called monotony.

Take a minute and think about the funniest thing you have ever heard a child say about the Bible. Did it bring a smile to your lips, then it will probably bring a smile to someone else.
