pee pee

First of all, Happy Monday everyone.

Well, I have another confession to make to the world wide web. 

Well, I…umm…I…prefer…to piss sitting down.  There, I said it.  I’m tired of constantly missing the mark and having to clean up after myself.  And after watching this video, I’ve learned that God is not pleased with me.

For a more thoughtful, theological and scholarly commentary on the video and scripture text referenced on the video, dr. bo knows.

    i to will come out of the closet. i pee sitting down. it’s easier. more relaxing. no clean-up. more sustainable over the long run. and i can get about 20 seconds of reading done.

    I’m all about it. New magazines come in the mail and they go straight to the Little Pastor’s Room for perusal later.
    My wife mocks me for reading in there, but she has ALWAYS appreciated the sitting…

    Especially now that we have a little boy whose aim is often less-than-true. 🙂

  4. I don’t understand you guys (possibly women) at all. I only pee against walls.

    It’s been difficult to maintain 100% purity in my wall-peeing habits. Often, while I’m lifting weights and smoking cigars, I find that there’s a toilet nearby but no walls in sight. It’s times like these that I just have to man-up and pee on the nearest wall no matter who’s watching. Because I’m not here to please people – I’m here to please God.

    Sometimes, like when I’m chasing deer through the woods with a knife between my teeth, I’m surrounded by Manly-Jehova’s beautiful nature but there are no walls around. When I find myself far enough outside civilization like this I just hold it. I hold my pee until I return (with a freshly killed deer) to some place with walls. If Jesus could fast for 40 days then we, as men, ought to be able to hold our pee for 40 days as well.

    A few months ago I was in a rodeo and, having broken six ribs and both my feet, I was left sprawling in the middle of the rodeo circle and I didn’t have the strength to crawl to a wall. So I built a wall right there with my bare hands. And I peed on it.

    I should point out that the ruggedest men prefer gray concrete walls with pieces of steel jutting out while the more effeminate wall-pissers prefer stucco or anything with a pattern.

    I can only pray to my Cage-Fighting Jesus that all of you men learn to be as holy. And, of course, he’ll answer my prayer because I fulfill a culturally accepted gender role.

    Well, I pee standing up as well. Us feminists need to cover for you wimpy men. 🙂

  6. leochen says:

    I’m laughing so hard I can pee in my pants… standing up!

  7. don says:

    Great post Gene! This guy is clearly in self-destruct mode!

  8. Kellie says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. There are no words.

  9. chad says:

    unreal. amazing. hilarious.
    but does a real man of God clean up after himself when he “pisseth on the wall”?

  10. me says:

    I know there’s more of you wimpy men out there. Confess your sins so that we can start a 12 step support group.

    I was going to give this one my funniest blog post of the year award. And then I read Danger’s comment… =)

  12. hawaii dave says:

    sign me up for the program.. this may be the funniest thing i have ever seen! i have a bad cough and nearly killed myself watching this! thanks for the post, and uh, for confessing so i don’t feel like i’m the only sinner 🙂 JCD’s comments are hilarious. I think i’ll go play some tackle football, or go hunting or something so i feel manly…

  13. Ben C says:

    What the heck lol

  14. Matt says:

    Oh man! Does this mean that I need to hold in my pisseth while I poopeth, and then after I’m done wipingeth, then I must stand up and pisseth?

    If that’s the case, I’m in trouble.

  15. david says:

    this guy is insane. and hilarious. he’d might as well piss on the pulpit while he’s at it since that’s what his ridiculous “theology” is already doing for him.

  16. Jason says:

    that silence you hear in the audience? that’s God’s holy conviction raining down on the men in the room….raining down like piss on a wall!

  17. J. Michael Matkin says:

    What I want to know, then, is why God spends all his time sitting on his heavenly throne.

  18. Dan Hauge says:

    Seriously, you guys know who else pees sitting down? That’s right, the French. This is what our formerly blessed civilization is coming to, people! You bunch of ‘males’!

  19. […] 2008 by Dan (Fitness) This made me laugh so hard I actually squeaked.  The ending is glorious(Eugene Cho): […]

  20. “Pastor’s used to stand up, and preach”…. And Pee! On the wall!

    I cannot thank you enough for posting this. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go pee on a wall. God Bless ‘Merica!

  21. […] kinda feel bad for the pastor in the “pisseth video” but at least, he’s getting lots of traffic to his church’s […]

  22. L T says:

    now when i’ve got to go i’m faced with some critical decision making or at least i can’t go without thinking about this video. it used to be so easy, standing up or sitting down was just a matter of what’s more convenient at the moment. not once have i ever considered how i should obey God in this area of my life. i will never be the same again.

    thanks e.
    hope to see you at aalc in LA.

  23. Blake says:

    Boy, I’m glad I piss standing up… It’s what makes me a man. If there was any doubt in my mind at this point about my manliness, this definitely confirms it. 😉 lol.

  24. me says:

    I’m starting to feel guilty here as I don’t want to make fun of this pastor but rather, call us to examine this kind of ‘theology.’

    I have to give him kudos for having the guts to post his stuff on youtube.

    eugene- great blog. i am new to your site… but i wanted to comment. i am a lover of religion (nearly every religion). But what i think our pastor here fails to understand is that the entire bible is a misinterpretation…a mistranslation of what was really said or meant. These crude translations from Arabic to Greek, Greek to Latin, Latin to Old English, Old English to Modern English do not represent the true voice of God. However, we can read the New Testament and understand the truth behind what Jesus preached. Peeing, whether sitting down or standing up (it seems) is this pastor’s way of adding “shock value” to his sermons.

    please stop by my blog sometime. I’ve got one entitled “just a thought” that is right up your alley. would love to have your insight on this topic.

    sincerely-
    your new reader-

    @ michael joyce (and eugene)

    Wait…aren’t all translations of the Bible translated from the original language it was written in? The Arabic to Greek to Latin to Old English to Modern English seems to create many more steps than necessary. What about when the stuff gets translated into Chinese? Do we go from the Modern English or Modern Spanish (or italian, or russian, or japanese, or….)??

    Or at least I think that’s what I’ve heard. I really am unsure about the Arabic to Greek step. or hebrew or whatever other language it was originally written in. I thought the translations were always from the original language.

One Day’s Wages

#notetoself (and maybe helpful for someone else)

At times, we have to say ‘NO’ to good things to say ‘YES’ to the most important things.

We can't do it all.
Pray and choose wisely.
Then invest deeply. May our compassion not just be limited to the West or to those that look like us. Lifting up the people of Iraq, Iran, and Kurdistan in prayer after the 7.3 earthquake - including the many new friends I met on a recent trip to Iraq.

The death toll rises to over 400 and over 7,000 injured in multiple cities and hundreds of villages along the Western border with Iraq.

Lord, in your mercy... We are reminded again and again...that we are Resurrection People living in a Dark Friday world.

It's been a tough, emotional, and painful week - especially as we lament the horrible tragedy of the church shootings at Sutherland Springs. In the midst of this lament, I've been carried by the hope, beauty, and promise of our baptisms last Sunday and the raw and honest testimonies of God's mercy, love, and grace.

Indeed, God is not yet done. May we take heart for Christ has overcome the world. "Without genuine relationships with the poor, we rob them of their dignity and they become mere projects. And God did not intend for anyone to become our projects." Grateful this quote from my book, Overrated, is resonating with so many folks - individuals and  NGOs. / design by @preemptivelove .
May we keep working 
on ourselves 
even as we seek 
to change the world. 
To be about the latter 
without the former 
is the great temptation 
of our times. Minhee and I are filled with gratitude as we reflect on the @onedayswages gala last night. So many friends and guests came to support our work...and of course, our scrappy staff, interns, and board. In 8 years, we've impacted 561,000 people around the world that are living in extreme poverty and vulnerable situations. This year, we are expecting to have our largest investment of grants at $1.3 million! Over the next couple weeks, I'm going to share some of those stories of impact.

But we need your help to keep growing this work. Because our pledge is for 100% of all donations to go directly to our partnerships, we're asking folks from around the world to consider becoming one of core supporters by simply pledging $25/month to support our operations. Go to give.onedayswages.org for more info.
