This last Sunday our Student Ministry had a Q&A day. We collected questions from the students on 3×5 cards. The questions were anonymous and we went through the questions before Sunday and decided which ones to answer.
As I was reading through them I came across one asking: “If God farts, is it holy?”
Here’s my answer.
QA: If God farts…
A: Isaiah 16:11: “Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.” (KJV)
QB: …is it holy?
A: Holy means to be set apart. God is holy and everything he does is holy… but, if we’re talking “God the son” (Jesus) he was Man and God. He took human form and part of being human is dealing with the human body… gas, pee, poop, sweat and all kinds of stuff. Jesus most likely farted. But that farting had no “holy” purpose. It was just a result of taking human form… an unfortunate reality of a human body.
(I couldn’t resist answering this.)
On a serious note: what are you questions?
