One of These Things is not Like the Others

Do you folks remember the Sesame Street song, "One of these things is not like the others?"

It's a fond little game we play when we're younger.

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?


Now, which of these quotes belong to the label "Christian," and which of these do not?

A) Gollum, aka Mr Smeagol's preciousss - "They cursed us. Murderer they called us. They cursed us, and drove us away. And we wept precious, we wept to be so alone. And we forgots the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind. We even forgot our own name. My preciousss."

B) A Christian's Preciousss - "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in a field. Which a man having found, hid it, and for joy thereof goeth, and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Again the kingdom of heaven is like to a merchant seeking good pearls. Who when he had found one pearl of great price, went his way, and sold all that he had, and bought it." Matthew 13:44-45

C) Daniel Chew Huicong, aka Watchman Chew's preciousss - "They criticized us. Watchman they called us. They blogged about us. Hypocrites they called us. They criticized us, and blogged about us all the way. And we wrote precious, we wrote on our blog while being alone. And we forgots the taste of love, the sound of humility, the softness of the heart. We even forgot our own name - 'Christian'. My preciousss blog, papers, book and theology. My preciousss facade before Man."

AT,

Is that a picture of Mr Chew, or it that Gollum?

IMHO, Smeagol is more handsome than that. Mr Chew is probably like this by now, but Smeagol, oh no, he's still looking good.

FYI.

Hi,

I googled "Daniel Chew the Gollum" and your post came up.

Interesting blog. I know Mr Chew. ;) Enuff said.

Priceless, AT.

I think it is fair to say that the ODMer (like Daniel Chew) are like that. They criticise and condemn, and yet when someone retaliates, they will

a) imagine themselves to be an Elijah - with no one to help them (except fellow ODMer);

b) further criticise the person in being unloving.

This is a no-win situation for the targets of ODMers.

Is Chew the one with the gun or the dagger? Or is he the one with the least hair (and looks uncannily like Mr Smeagols)?

I'm confused!
