Would you rather laugh with the sinners, or cry with the saints?
Comments are closed.
I’d rather change the radio station. Not into Billy Joel.
What’s life without laughter?
I hear the sinners are much more fun. 😉
But only the good die young.
haha… this is really fun and interesting…
I haven’t met a saint yet so I guess that leaves me with the other party…
hahaha… yeah right. me too 🙂
Laughing with Sinners would be the best && technically nobody is a saint because we all make bad choices in our lives! So there is no doubt about it life with sinners and laughter.
Either of the situations you have implied in your topic, are not permanent scott. Life is a circle – what goes up, comes back down. You also get to cry with the sinners and laugh with saints.
Laugh with the sinners:
Have never meet a real saint and we are all sinners. Laughing and crying is part of life.
If I laugh with the sinners, I could also be laughing with saints. Saints aren’t perfect, they’re sinners too.
Were only human 🙂
I would like to be able to do both.
If I really meet a saint, a genuine saint that is, (and we all get to know when the saint is a real one!) then, I prefer to cry with him, shed tears in ecstasy of realizing God, of feeling blessed….
After much thought, I have a take on this 😀 http://ittakes10k.wordpress.com/2011/09/26/1-377-of-10000-laugh-or-cry-but-theres-a-twist
Wow, I so like this question… What an interesting one! Now I began laughing, so I guess I would rather laugh with sinners while at the same time keeping my faith…
Sinners and saints – they are all people, therefore they are entitled to their own freedom of expression.
It’s hard to be a saint, so I guess, I would rather laugh with sinners. Haha
I would rather stay away from both extremes…
nice topic. here’s my blog; http://rohitsinghjain.blogspot.com/
I’d rather cry with sinners and laugh with saints but that’s just me .
Another vote for the Sinners here. Speaking as a prized and deeply perverted sinner, I’d hope for some good company and an equally good laugh.
I feel that one can always laugh with a person who has a story to tell, a story that one may gain insight from. Who wants to sit and listen to a saint talk about all the right decisions he made and learn absolutely nothing from it. I say stick with the sinners, they will offer knowledge and will most likely have a drunken night to talk about. Live today for today, if it makes you happy crying with a saint, then be my guest. If it makes you happy laughing with a sinner then DO IT. It is your life and please do what makes you happy, there is too much sad in this freaking world! Smileee 🙂
I would laugh out loud with sinners buy won’t commit a sin.
A word to all: Never condemn a sinner, but the sin….treat him, make him good!!!!
Desmond Tutu has the most infectious laugh in the world. So I think the question is daft!
Actually be live in a huge bowl of sinners and saints and some we do not know from the other and some are fantastic and I do not know who is a sinner or a saint and I like it that way.

We’re all sinners. Don’t think you can be considered a saint or gain true ‘saint-hood’ until after you die… so if you’re crying with saints you are probably dead, right?
I plead the 5th
Now that’s some food for thought.
I’d say it depends on what they’re laughing about, and what they’re crying about, but no one person can be a saint even if he does good deeds outwardly. While everyone is a sinner. I think it depends more on the individual people you laugh or cry with. Don’t condemn everyone for their sins when they are forgiven through Christ. Question the character of the people that you spend your time with. The question doesn’t really go beyond anything but labels, but it is a very good question that really got me thinking.
A challenging question, difficult to answer.

If u choose not to loose your sanity u might want to do both. Were all in this together we just go in different directions sometimes we collide to insure the armagedon exists.
i would prefer to laugh with sinners 😀
It depends…. what are the sinners doing?
If the sinners are not committing any crimes, I’d laugh with them any day…
People are declared saints, not because they have never sinned, but because they did rise above that sin and for the love of humanity produced good lasting works toward solutions to problems in society that aid us all. So when you laugh with a sinner you may be laughing with a future saint.
I like the Idea of Sinners being Future Saints, so i’d say laughing with Sinners. It’s better than crying, i guess.
Cry with the saints
