WHAT THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ARE...
WHY DO YOU CALL YOURSELVES MISSIONARIES?
Historically Christian churches have sent missionaries to the world to tell them the story of Jesus. They learned other languages. Sometimes this worked and sometimes the missionaries had their heads chopped off. Now with the internet, the world is coming to us... so now we need to send missionaries to the internet. We need to speak the language of the people of the internet. Plus, we don't have enough money to travel and are afraid of getting our heads chopped off! Like other missionaries, we are raising support. Will you help us?
With the possible exception of kitten imagery, comedy content is the number one thing shared on the internet. If you think of your favorite movie quotes, most likely they came from a comedy film or from that quirky character in that action film you watched 20 times. We believe in the shareability of spiritual truth of comedy video. Besides comedy brings joy and the world could use some more laughter just for balance.
WHY PICK ON HYPOCRITES and HYPOCRISY?
Have you ever met a hypocrite? They pretend to be nice but at their core they are kinda selfish. Unlike us, they say one thing and do another. They preach acting a certain way and then they do the opposite. It's one part funny and two parts tragic. At Funny&Amen we'll focus on the funny side of Hypocrites. Religious folks or not, these people offer plenty examples of hypocrisy to make fun of. How do we know so much about hypocritical people? We study them every morning in the mirror.
WHAT'S THIS GOT TO DO WITH JESUS?
Every story needs a hero. Both on screen and behind the scenes, all the humans in our stories play the fool. In this way, a true Hero will arise from our stories. Guess who that will be 🙂
