Mandela

I wonder if everyone would mind answering a few questions for me….

What do you remember about Nelson Mandela? Do you remember it ever being reported that he died in prison?

What does the evil queen say to her mirror in the Disney film Snow White?

Does the Bible speak of the Lion and the lamb, or the wolf and the lamb?

What does Darth Vader say to Luke at the end of Star Wars?

What does the Lord’s prayer say…. fill in the blank… ‘forgive us our ____, as we forgive __________’?

Fill in the blank…. ‘You do not put new wine into old _____’

Fill in the blank… 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his ______
in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

Thanks I appreciate your input.

  1. Ooh, what fun! Let’s see what I remember…
    1. BTW: Invictus and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom are good movies! I thought it was reported he died in his home, from a respiratory infection.
    2. I think the evil Queen says, “Magic mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?” She says more stuff to the mirror, but that the famous question. I think. ???
    3. Lamb and wolf in Isaiah 11:6. But…hmm…I remember being taught it was the lion and the lamb. ??? And all the famous artwork depicts the lion and lamb. ???
    4. “Come with me, it is the only way.” I think that was THE VERY last thing Darth Vader said to Luke in his “No, I am your father” pep talk. 😀 HA! I called it a “pep talk”. Bad old Darth Vader!
    5. I was taught “our trespasses” as we forgive “those who trespass against us”. But, have also heard people say the “debt” version. Wonder what The Frank Translation would say?! 🙂
    6. “old drunk winos” ?! Ha 😀 Just teasin’! I remember it being “old wineskins”??? I was told the new wine would burst the old skins.
    7. I remember it being “anything” ??? I think it depends on the translation/version and on which/whose Gospel it’s in…Like was it Matthew, or Luke? Etc.
    Ha! “housetop” made me think of Santa Claus! 😛

    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…now what are the correct answers! 🙂

    1. Hi Carolyn,
      So here is the odd thing…. it’s what’s being called the Mandela effect… things are changing…. (called the Mandela effect because there is a whole camp of people that understood, or understand, that Mandela died in prison)

      I’ve always thought the evil queen said, “Mirror Mirror on the wall…”

      Yes… since when is it the lamb and the wolf?

      Star Wars…. if you play it now it says, “Luke I am your father”, instead of “No, I am your father”

      Yes, I’ve always known the Lord’s prayer to say ‘trespasses’ and thought it was odd when just recently I read it in my Bible and it said ‘debtors’ instead.

      Yes, wineskins, but now the Bible says ‘bottles’
      and yes… ‘possessions’, except now the Bible says ‘stuff’ … stuff!? since when is the word ‘stuff’ a word from the 1st century?

      Here are some others…

      You know Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and the rest that we used to watch on Saturday mornings? What were they called? Now try googling it.

      What’s the famous phrase that Forrest Gump said?

      Have you heard of a book by Ann Rice… fill in the blank… Interview with ___ Vampire?

      It’s all very bizarre.

      1. Bizarre indeed!
        “Interview With THE Vampire”????
        And I’m not sure the Internet has helped with this bizarreness. Ha. Seems many people pass on everything and anything and some of it is incorrect. Oh well.
        “Life is like a box of chocolates….” 🙂

  2. I remember some of those things. I heard that the the old Disney VHS movies can be very valuable because it’s like a different version of the new versions. I suppose when they bring them out of the vault again they make the changes they think they should? Kind of disturbing. 😦 Hey, I hope you have a pleasant day!

    1. Hi Miriam, No, that is the strangeness of it… when you pull out the old movies and watch them… they too have changed.
      Also, you can’t altar something made that long ago because you wouldn’t have the actors and their voices.
      What do you say about the Bible changes?

  3. I remember

    Yes Lion and Lamb
    Luke I am your Father.
    Forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors….
