OK, I am going to admit something here. Like I haven’t admitted 50 things “here.” But I love the Jesus Juke. It is a way of speaking that was brought to light a few years back by Jon Acuff, so I can’t take any credit for it, but he is spot on.If you don’t know what a Jesus Juke is, it is basically someone who turns any conversation or phrase said back to religion-ese. It is annoying. Aggravating. It is the Christian equivalent of the old Debbie Downer SNL skit. (yes, I know SNL is debased and to reference it probably means I am not truly saved, but…I am , so get over it.)
“Man, this Starbucks coffee is soooo good.”
“Well, with the money you spent on that, 12 orphans in Uganda could’ve received shoes for Christmas.”
JESUS JUKE Guilt Trip.
