    Only bizarre church I've been in was Pentecostal. The rest you could say was just plain boring and repetitive. Same thing every Sunday over and over.

    A few years ago I went to a catholic mass with some friends from school. The acoustic in the church was terrible and I couldn't understand anything the priest was saying so I kept busy by observing people. The man sitting behind me rapidly fell asleep, but every time people got up, he opened his eyes and got up as well, when it was time to clap he clapped and then he went back to sleep until the end of the service. At the time I found that "auto pilot" system hilarious.

    The Tower of Babel story seems a reasonable explanation for the scattering of nations and confusion of languages

    If someone is looking for an explanation apart from God, they will be disappointed, that is if they hold a stick naturalism worldview.

    Seems to me the better thing to do with someone given over to lust is to first tell them to repent in an appropriate manner - perhaps privately at first.

    My Bizarre Story:

    I had made a decision to be a success in the business world whether it cost me my wife and my children (just like my dad) -- my wife believed our marriage would last about 7 years (just like all the marriages she had seen)

    We both gave our lives to Jesus on a Sunday morning and on Monday -- our marriage and lives were completely healed and changed.

    Bizarre.
