#123 Christian roommates



Christians prefer to cohabit with their own ilk. When someone in Christian culture goes seeking a roommate they always specify that any applicants must also be Christians in order to be considered.

They presume that if their roommate is a Christian then they will be kind, considerate, and clean, not be messy, obnoxious, or crazy. And like many of us who have actually roomed with Christians before, they'll just have to learn that lesson the hard way.

As a Bible college student, I can say this presumption is complete bullshit. Many of the other residents in my dormitory play loud music constantly, despite our dorm director being "very strict" about noise policy. Several have shown up to their dorm rooms drunk.

In my third year of Bible College I rented an apartment with 3 guys. Two of them were kind, considerate and clean. The third guy would regularly leave half a pot of Cream of Wheat on the stove, and always drink all the milk (mixed it with Kahlua).

It was still good times.
