Rest for the weary and heavy laden?


Here is a tongue in cheek teaser on a post made by Michael Spencer at Jesus Shaped Spirituality in which he makes fun of how we often “limit” the offer of REST for the “weary and heavy laden” as given by Jesus in Mtt 11:28.

*Actual offer applies to Jesus only in a mysterious, spiritual sense. Application of offer is restricted in most actual churches to persons fulfilling additional requirements as determined appropriate by theologians and church leadership. Persons wishing to take advantage of said offer should contact their local Jesus franchise and fulfill specific requirements.

Offer does not pertain to the Lord’s Supper in many places due to additional theological complications in church history.

Definition of “Labor and heavy laden” varies in individual cases and may not include sexual sinners, adulterers, criminals and addicts. Those interested in this offer who continue to experience serious sin problems should see their local franchise to discuss what variations on the offer are available to sinners without a testimony of deliverance.
