“Da Jesus Book”

“God wen get so plenny love an aloha fo da peopo inside da world, dat he wen send me, his one an ony Boy, so dat everybody dat trus me no get cut off from God, but get da real kine life dat stay to da max foeva.”

Do you understand that? Do you recognize it?

It’s John 3:16 in Hawaiian Pidgin.

You might know it more along these lines: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

More, you clamor? Okay:

“So den, wat bout us guys? All dose peopo dat wen trus God befo time, jalike dey all wen run one race. An now, jalike dey all stay standing aroun us, watching us run da race, an showing us how fo do um. So we gotta gemo all dat stuff dat make us run slow, you know, dat bad kine stuff dat jam us all up. We gotta hang in dea an finish da race dat God wen pick fo us.” – Fo Da Hebrew Peopo 12:1

Five points to the person who can recognize this verse and put it into ASE (American Standard English).

    Phil 3:12 something? I can’t exactly remember, I just checked into my hotel tonight and saw this. 😛 San Diego tomorrow! Man…I wish my Bible was easy to follow like such…but then the deeper truths would be more difficult to discover too I spose… Goodnight!
