I don't really get Bible babble.
What is that? Well, let me explain.
I've had conversations, here and elsewhere, where in the middle of a conversation someone will suddenly break out a Bible verse. If it's in real life life this will be followed by silence and an expectant look. If it's in cyberspace it will come at the end of a paragraph.
In the real world I usually say "and?" In cyberspace I will make a snarky comment about "Bible babble. "
I'm not a Christian. I have no frame of reference to Bible verses and saying something like that to makes me think you had something to say but forgot it. The Bible verse is covering up a senior moment. That's quite alright, have a senior moment but don't quote the Bible at me to cover up for it. I won't know what you are talking about.
Now, if you are talking to a fellow member of your parish or congregation, babble the Bible stuff at each other all day long. Undoubtedly you will look very wise to your community. They will look at you with great respect and speak about your amazing ability to Bible babble at the drop of the hat. They will say things like, " Wow, did you hear Mr. So-and-So pull out the amazing Bible babble to Reverend Jones??? It's like he can Bible babble in his sleep with one hand tied behind his back!!!!!!!! "
The point is, know your audience. If you Bible babble something at someone without knowing where they stand then you may lose them. Feel them out a little. Throw out a test, like, "So, what do you like to do in your spare time?" If they say they like to spend time with the coven, dancing naked in a forest grove under the full moon while sacrificing a goat, then you best keep the Bible babble to yourself. If the answer is they enjoy spending time baking cupcakes to prepare for the monthly bake sale at the church, why, you have a winner. You can then test out a little Bible babble to gauge that person's familiarity with the Bible babble.
Really, it's good with any form of Christian platitude. Another is the sudden spontaneous "Praise the Lord!!!!!" I got PTL'd this morning at the gym. It's confusing to me, I didn't quite know what to say. I could've just faked a PTL at him but I thought that might lead to unnecessary Bible babble. I can fake a PTL but the Bible babble is quite beyond me. I sort of mumbled a "Good morning" and stuck my head in my book. However, a moment later another gentleman joined us with a hearty PTL and the two commenced to conversing, with much Bible babble laced in. I felt relieved that I was off the hook.
So, in conclusion, I just want to say that I have nothing against Christians of any type. You seem like nice people but remember not everyone is like you. You can't just drop a Bible babble and expect everyone to know what you are talking about.
