Analogies : Scripture :: Church : God?


Analogy is just a term that means “word relationships”. I found it interesting to read some of these in relationship to the relationships we have in the church.

Want to have some fun? Try choosing a scripture reference to pair with each one!

  1. Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently compressed by a ThighMaster. (Song of Solomon?)
  2. His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
  3. He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.

    Acts of the Apostles?

  4. She grew on him like she was a colony of E. Coli, and he was room-temperature Canadian beef. (Judges 16?)
  5. She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just before it throws up.
  6. Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.
  7. He was as tall as a six-foot, three-inch tree. (John 1?)
  8. The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of his wife’s infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly surcharge-free ATM machine.
  9. The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t.
  10. McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with vegetable soup. (Acts 1?)

Okay, now that you’ve had a chuckle, put your theology thinking cap on! I’ve added a few thoughts on scripture references, but let’s see what you think. Put the number of the analogy in the comment section of the blog below and then the scripture suggestion. I have a feeling we can come up with quite a few if we put our minds to it!

Have fun!
