We each have our unique view of the world; our strong faith and belief in a higher power can influence that point of view significantly. And if you add exhaustion and lack of sleep to that, you may start believing the strangest things.

A 73-year-old retired reverend went for a checkup. All the tests came back as expected, and the doctor sits with him to discuss the results. He said,

“Eric, physiologically everything looks great! Now I just need to know about your emotional and mental health. How have you been? Have you been feeling happy? Is your faith still strong?”

The Reverend, Eric, replied,

“Well, doctor, God and I are on excellent terms. He knows that I can’t see so well anymore because of my age, so every time I go to the bathroom at night, He magically turns on the lights for me! And when I’m done, He turns the light off again!”

The doctor, worried by the story, called Eric’s wife and asked,

“Good morning, Anna! I called to let you know that Eric came by and his test results are great. But the reason for my call is the story he told me about his new found relationship with God. Is it true that God miraculously turns the light on and off for him when he goes to the bathroom at night?”

Anna’s reply caught the doctor by surprise when she said,

“That old fool! He is peeing in the fridge again!!”

Similarly, the point of view between different religions can make all the difference just as it does in this story of a time a man wanted to stop a stranger from jumping off a bridge.

A stranger was about to jump off a bridge said, “Nobody loves me!” The man, trying to help him change his mind answered, “Don’t do it! God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

When the stranger said yes, the man continued, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?”

Stranger: “I’m a Christian.”

Man: “Me, too! Are you Protestant or Catholic?”

Stranger: “Protestant.”

Man: “Me, too! What franchise?”

Stranger: “Baptist.”

Man: “Me, too! Are you Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?”

Stranger: “Northern Baptist.”

Man: “Me, too! Did you mean Northern Conservative Baptist? Or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

Stranger: “Northern Conservative Baptist.”

Man: “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?”

Stranger: “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.”

Man: “Me, too! Northern Conservative†Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?"

Stranger: "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912."

Man: "Die, heretic!" And he pushed him over.
