Despite the last two posts you really won’t find much on puppies or kittens in the Bible.CatandDogTheology

The verses on dogs aren’t very cute and it’s lions rather than the domestic cat that gets the most attention in scripture.
But after looking at the Playful Puppies Bible and the LolCat translation it’s time for the third instalment in this New Year series.

Cat and Dog theology is something of a modern idea that has it’s origins in a joke but like all those funny stories Jesus told has a deeper message to those that listen.

The idea is simple:

“A dog may look at you and think, ‘You feed me, you pet me, you shelter me, you love me — You must be god!”  On the other hand a cat can look at you and say, ‘You feed me, you pet me, you shelter me, you love me — I must be god!”

And from those two perspectives writers Bob Sjogren and Gerald Robinson encourage you to think about how you and your church view your relationship with God. Do you exist to serve God? or do you think God exists to serve you?

You can find out more about the idea at www.catndogtheology.com where there are some videos and samplers of how this idea is expanded in a seminar setting. You can also find a sample of the book on Google Books
