I understand your point-
there are places for humor and there are places where you can just stay on the serious side.
I agree with you that God does like humor (just look at his unique creations!)
If you are talking about preaching with humor, there are times when I can really appreciate it in a sermon when it's appropriate. Now during a time like communion service...... not so much.
Hope this helps! :)

I agree with you totally. Laughter's good for the soul and there's a time and place for everything. I think the guy from your church thought it was the wrong time. But, im pretty sure Jesus laughed , he did come to earth in human form so it was human to laugh. :)

Hey guys sorry if my message looks funny it's my first time using this. If you have any advice for me it will be greatly appreciated!

I believe that there is a time for humor and a time to settle down. (Eccleisiates 3 talks about a time for everything) But anyway, we are allowed to giggle at school, but take the field trip today where we are going to share the Adventist message, we are supposed to be more serious because we are representing our church, our school, and maybe even our Pathfinder club. Humor is OK in church as long as it is Christian and not used so much that the service doesn't seem right anymore.

Hope that this helps!

I think humor is okay. I don't, however, think its okay when in the pulpit. I mean, your suppose to be teaching serious truths that can determine the eternal life or death of a soul, for pete's sake! When a minister uses humor and jokes to impress a crowd or make his sermon more interesting, it distracts people from what's important.

I'll admit I sometimes have a hard time paying attention to sermons. When a pastor jokes a bit, it helps me pay attention and enjoy what I'm hearing along with the message the pastor is delivering.
... Even if it gets me convicted
I’ll still be on my knees with my hands lifted ...
... If saying I believe is out of line
If I’m judged cause I’m gonna give my life
To show the world the love that fills me
Then I want to be Guilty ...

Hey, with some people, it's just their personalities. :S one Adventist family may do different things in their home from the Adventist family across the street or next door. Individual people have individual morals, opinions, and personalities. ;) ;) B)

In Ecclesiasties 3, it says that "There is a time for everything." Verse 4 states, "A time to weep and a time to laugh." I think this applies to humor in church as well. Laughter and happiness are good for you, but there are specific times when they are appropriate. Most of the time, I appreciate humor during sermons, since it helps me pay attention and understand the message more. However, on some occasions, humor is uncalled for. We need to recognize when it is a good time for humor, vs. when it is not.
Psalm 86:15 - But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

This is one of my favorite verses :)

I LOVE CHOCOLATE!

Yes there is a time for everything but laughter is good medicine. And it matters what he was joking about of course but remember we are Adventists not Sadventists and we don't have to be serious all the time. That member was probably bitter and depressed, take the time to be extra kind to them.

If it's appropriate, humor gets the point across although I can understand why people get offended.

If it is inappropriate then that is bad at church but as long as it is clean and pure then that's okay. :side:

I think Mp said it for me cause I sometimes have a hard time concentrating on sermons :lol: :lol: . I personally don't see any problem with humor in church as long as it's clean and related with the sermon. And the Sabbath is a day of celebrations. How do you celebrate? With serious faces, quiet, and getting angry with those that are happy? We should all be happy, and there can be just a little space for a bit more happiness in sermons, I am not saying a lot, but enough to keep everyone happy, and maybe a bit more attentive. I am not saying that it should be used as a tool for attentiveness, and that it should be used all the time, but there are times when sermons need to be elevated with a joke or two. This is my opinion on the matter.

And now, I await the storm. If there isn't one, that is fine too :lol: :lol:. Anyways, Happy Sabbath!
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing
