NO BULL!

The ‘NO BULL’ Gospel!

bull

Ps 50:9

9 I will accept no bull from your house

I remember at one point, in dealing with an employee, who brought a grossly inaccurate lie to me one day, and in the heat of the moment, I exclaimed, ‘BULL!’

And it was. Another employee had grossly padded hours on their timecard, and when I investigated, checked with the client, and docked their pay, they brought this incredulous account, about how they justified their lying and theft. I was so amazed and enraged at this, that I made the comment mentioned above.

The Christian brother I was addressing, a Bible school student, said, “Brother, you are a Bible school graduate, and you know the power of your words, how can you speak so?”

I didn’t back up. I explained that this employee lying and trying to steal from one of our clients, was flat out wrong, and that it hurt us all, in damaging our reputation with our client, and perhaps ending future work from them and their references.

He was still upset, feeling I had handled it unlovingly.

So, I actually prayed about it the next morning, and asked the Lord about it.

Holy Spirit brought the following verse to my remembrance:

Galatians 5:12 As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

Whew! Not a verse I’m going to pick for my morning meditations and faith confessions. Paul’s getting a little personal here!

Paul knew what legalistic sinners could do. They had beat him up, stoned him, and left him for dead. Did he forgive them?

Sure, but he hated what they did, and made no bones about it.

Heard a story about a Christian rancher, that had some unscrupulous contractors show up at his ranch, and try and artificially inflate prices, and sell him a ‘bill of goods’ so to speak.

His reply is hilarious, but direct and to the point.

He said, ‘You know boys, this is a big ranch, and I have a lot of cattle here. Now I didn’t see him, but one of the bulls must have got loose. Nope, I didn’t see him, but he must have been through here cause I smell something he left behind.”

bull no

Then he exclaimed. “Gotta get back to work, you boys have a great day!”

I think he was paraphrasing this verse:

Psalm 50:9

Amplified Bible (AMP)

9 I will accept no bull from your house

Just because we are Christians does not mean we need to be stupid! Hope this helps someone today, and puts a smile on your face.
