Garfield?Your most favorite cartoon of all time is a strip from Garfield?Personally, I find much more wisdom contained here.(Garfield?)
I agree with GH: Garfield???The Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes are unbeatable, IMO. And GH, the snowman series had me laughing right out loud. "Precious memories."
I'm not saying Garfield is better than Far Side or C&H. Clearly that would be stupid.But my point is not about funny or witty--or even aesthetics.I'm talking about the theological insight of this one strip.
I am extremely reluctant to relegate anything to Garfield.:)You want theological profundity from a comic strip? Consider this.
Although I understand your point, Ben....I would tend to agree with my good friend G and Mr. Anderson here.....it is very hard for me to draw theological enrichment from Garfield. The main reasons being he is gluttonous and lazy. But again, I understand your desire to enrich us....:-)
Sarah,Since when have gluttony and laziness been issues to fundamental Baptists?
