Mr. T and the WSC # 1
Hey Fools – I’m back!
I’ve agreed to offer my commentary on the Westminster Shorter Catechism and its in yo best interest to pay attention, sucka!
Q: What is the chief end of man?
A: Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.
The first thing you might ask T is – “What does chief end mean?” Ask me a hard question, fool! The chief end is our main desire in life. That thing that all the souls long after and aim towards. For example, my chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever, but my second chief end is hurl ninjas over my head and into various kinds of shelving, sucka.
Chuckin’ fools into inanimate objects or their friends brings T to his second point: Glorifying God is our chief end, but we also got our jobs and family too. We gotta put food on the table for all the little T’s running around – (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12) but even in doing that, we need to be glorifying God first – 1 Corinthians 10:31 – So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
Why do we do everything to the glory of God? Because he created you, fool! The end, sucka!
