We puzzled over the parable of the dishonest manager (Luke 16:1-8) on our community's blog this week. One analysis of the text that I looked at riffed on the master's commendation of the manager's shrewd and ethically challenged actions and wondered if the church could learn from the ways of the world.
I didn't think much of this question, until I saw this video below. It's so funny it's sad. One thing is clear...there is a lot the church should not teach the "real" world.
