Where George Burns went wrong in “Oh God”

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Deacon Robert Banet

You sure have an impressive collection, Oscar.

Yes, I really dig old movies.

Do you have “Oh God!”

Yes.  George Burns played God.

And they asked him if Jesus Christ was his Son.  And he said yes.

So far so good.  But then he went wrong.Oh? How so?  Jesus is the Son of God, right?

Yes, but then George said so is Moses and Mohammad and the Buddha.  That’s where he went wrong.

I still don’t see why that’s wrong.

We Catholics believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God.

Only begotten?

Yes only one, not two. Not three.

Ah, I see why some people I know praised the movie when they should not have done so.

Yes. They need to pay attention to the Nicene Creed that we recite on Sundays.

Amen to that!
