Time out and a Saturday morning read...

Here is a joke that could cause offence, you may want to close your eyes now! If that got your attention, enjoy the message and the relevance of 1 John 1:5-9 (NIV).  

One day God was looking down to Earth and saw all of the evil that was going on. He decided to send an angel to check it out so He called on a female angel and sent her for a time. When she returned she told God, "yes it is bad on Earth, 95% is bad and 5% is good. "Well, He thought for a moment and said maybe I had better send down a male angel. To get both points of view. So God called a male angel and sent him to Earth for a time. When the male angel returned he went to God and told Him yes Earth was in decline, 95% was bad and 5% was good. God said this was not good. He would send a letter to the 5% that were good and encourage them, something to help them keep going. Do you know what that letter said? Oh, you didn't get one either :o)
1 John 1:5-9 (NIV), "This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make Him out to be a liar and His word has no place in our lives."
