Had a chuckle a couple of weeks back when this image of a dead raccoon was painted over on the Franklin Road in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, USA. Reminded me of this menu that was circulating on the internet many years ago.
The Roadkill Grill Menu
“A Taste of the Wild”
“Fender Lickin’ Good” Entrees:
(“Eat like a hog when you taste our dog!”)
“Food is more fun when you hit it on the run!”
Unfortunately, many unsuspecting animals end up on the menu of the Roadkill Grill simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They were in the middle of the road.
And there are many young people who are in danger of becoming roadkill too. That’s because they are “middle-of-the-road” Christians. They are neither on one side nor the other. They live for Christ when it’s convenient, then live for themselves or for the crowd when that’s more convenient. They are Christians on Sunday, but the rest of the week you can’t really tell which side of the road they are on. They are middle-of-the-road Christians.
The Bible says, “Choose this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15). Also: “No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise they other” (Matthew 6:24). And further: “So, because you are lukewarm-neither hot nor cold-I am about to spit you out of my moth” (Revelation 3:16). All of these Scriptures make the point very clear. If you are a middle-of-the-road Christian, you are roadkill.
