Cat & Dog Theology

A dog says...
"You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, you must be God."

A cat says...
"You pet me, you feed me, you shelter me, you love me, I must be God."

Question: Do you think like a dog? Or a cat?

Both theologies center on "me."

Which one am I? Depends on which day. I confess that I am too often guilty of "meology."

VERY astute, Della!

this quote also from the book:

"Dogs learn to obey their masters. Cats want their masters to obey them."

"If it were about us, why did God create three-quarters of the earth to be covered with water? Think about it. We humans can't even exist on three-quarters of the earth's surface. Why? It's for Him, not us!"

Good book with lots of "squirm" moments as we're forced to think about the faulty human tendency to treat God like He's a vending machine. Focusing on what He can do for us, versus what we should be doing for Him.

"meology"... love that! (hate it actually, but you know what i mean) you come up with that?

I did come up with that nasty term. I find myself wallowing in it too often.

Dogs learn to obey their masters because they like biscuits!

I've never reflected on the fact that we can't live on 3/4 of the earth's surface. Interesting.
This is definitely a book I'd like to read.

Have you read LESSONS FROM A SHEEP DOG? Another good one.

biscuits! oh, Della, i don't know whether to laugh or cry!

woof, woof... thinks it's time for a bit of introspection.

Having read your blog I thought you would be hugely interested to read my second e-book "An Ordinary Balck Cat" available in Do let me know how you got on with the 1st chapter. Good luck!
