I named this post as if I have a “question of the week” every week on aliens and strangers. But we all know that’s not true. All the same, though, this week there is a question. Hence, your question of the week:
How do you feel about Christians using hyperbole and sarcasm — especially as they relate to humor? More importantly, what does the Bible have to say about it?
This has come up recently, and I’m curious what others think on the issue. I myself absolutely love hyperbole and sarcasm. Hyperbole is my middle name, and I want to marry sarcasm. I employ one or the other of these tools of rhetoric at least a billion times a day and I’d die if, as a Christian, I weren’t allowed to.
At the same time, though, I don’t think either of them are humorous. Not one little bit.
