In these spiritually dark times it behooves those within the Body of Christ who are watching to also take a few moments every now and then to laugh a little bit and lighten our spirits in the midst of so much chaos and trepidation.
That's what "Caption Nation" is all about! The idea is simple really. I figure that since we're now primarily a society that largely gets its news and information from headlines, bylines, sound bytes, news tickers, and tweets why not utilize that reality to our advantage, but in a Christian and Bible prophecy forum.
Here's how it works. Each week (most likely on Fridays), I will post a photo that could very well be the "Photo of the Week", but I'll choose one that I think we could have some fun with by tying an end times prophecy related truth to it.
For instance, here's this week's picture:
(Sorry, but I couldn't make the picture any larger for some reason.)
Ok, now it's your job to light up the Comments Section with your best CAPTION idea. I will always kick things off, but then it's up to you to give it your best shot. Try to keep it to a single sentence or two. We'll collect your thoughts for an entire week and then reveal the "winner" (what I determine is the best caption for that particular photo).
If yours is selected you will win an all expenses paid trip to...sorry. Actually, you won't win much of anything (I don't have anything to give you or send you at the moment!) except bragging rights and the pride of knowing yours was the best-of-the-best for that week. Perhaps one day when I'm rich and famous I can afford to have an actual "prize" or SWAG ("Stuff We All Get") to send to each winner.
Wanna see how it works? Here's last week's photo:
There were MANY creative submissions, but the winner of last week's "Caption Nation Contest" is JB with:
"Obama lowers unemployment by putting American Citizens to work!"
As the Owner of a National Executive Recruiting Firm in this depressed job market, I have an affinity for any kind of comment that speaks to the current state of the economy, jobs, and the unemployed. Besides, this is how I envision things going once things get even worse -- the Obama administration putting people to work for them to suit their own agenda.
Congratulations JB! You win the prestige and bragging rights for a week. Be sure to flaunt it now with all your friends and family. Who knows, maybe one day yours truly will make up coffee mugs, hats, and t-shirts to commemorate the honor. Until then, please accept this public shout out instead.
Honorable Mentions go to Elpidios for...
SCULPTOR: "The God of Heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory...Thou art this head of gold! Er...Well, Ummm...We had to use potters clay... the vaults were empty, sir!"
...and Justin for:
Daniel 8:9 -- "And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceedingly great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land."
So, there you have it. Not too hard, right? I'm excited to see what many of you can come up with next because obviously we have some intelligent and creative people who stop by here regularly. Don't let me down!
Thanks for playing along.
