Iguanaman? Try Insurance Salesman


geckoRodney Trotter may have his facts a little out of place on this post.  This elaborate getup was part of a Vacation Bible School lesson involving the temptation of Christ in the wilderness.  Each lesson for the week was taught by an “eyewitness” who would relay a bible story and teach the children its meaning and importance.  When you’re struggling to find an eyewitness for Christ’s temptation, you’re either left with dressing up like Jesus  – which from this author’s conviction is a violation of the 2nd and possibly 3rd commandment – or dressing up like Satan.  In the case of the latter, you’ll likely scare all the children and/or convince them that everything you’re telling them is a lie.

This particular VBS curriculum decided to introduce a gecko that witnessed the account in the desert thereby skating between two terrible alternatives.  The gecko option, however does take a toll on the ego of the church’s intern.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. (Romans 16:17-18)
