Good Christians

This week I saw a list of 23 rules of writing posted on Facebook recently.  The list, attributed to Frank L. Visco, had the following title: How To Write Good.  Here are my ten favorites of this list of 23:

  1. Avoid Alliteration. Always.
  2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
  3. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
  4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
  5. The passive voice is to be avoided. (That one is for you Ms. Crumpton – Sr. AP English Comp)
  6. Foreign words and phrases are never apropos.
  7. One-word sentences?  Eliminate.
  8. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
  9. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
  10. Don’t be redundant; don’t use more words than necessary; it is highly superfluous.

After reading this list, I started thinking about a tongue-in-cheek look at living as a Christian.  Here is my submission:

  1. Lovingly gossip about others.

  2. Learn to be patient with others, NOW!
  3. Make peace by coercing others to agree with you.
  4. Judging me makes you wrong.
  5. It is more blessed for YOU to give.
  6. Consider others before yourself when there is a job to do and you don’t want to do it.
  7. Always tell others when you do something nice for someone else, that way you are shining your light.
  8. Pray so that everyone sees you, and ridicules you, so that you are blessed by persecution.
  9. Let me get that speck out of your eye.
  10. And most importantly: Be humble, like I am.

    • As a public speaker (whose messages are meant for educational purposes) I find alliterations always allow audiences acquisition and assimilation of my messages.

      I think I broke a few of the rules with that post reply. I shall repent later.
