Reverend Fun has been producing clever Christian comics since 1997. That's almost 20 years of this and he still hasn't run out of jokes! Today, we're featuring a set of comics from the last couple months that follow the same theme of someone trying to talk or bargain their way into Heaven.

Blimey Cow has done it again with another one of their fabulous list videos where they list 25 signs you were big into Christian music growing up with SPOT ON accuracy. At least 20 of these applied to me, especially number one. In fact, that one STILL applies to me.
Now that The Back Row is on Instagram, we've gotten really excited about our cache of original Christian memes! Here are our first 12:

First, a little history.
Matt Coker has loved singing since he was a young child. He’s been in several choirs, won many awards, and professionally recorded music at as young as 11 years old.
When he was a sophomore in High School, he became the lead singer (if you could call it singing) of a Christian punk rock band called “Table 13” that did car washes several weekends in a row to pay for the recording of a full-length album.
The album was terrible, but the process had been a blast.
Shortly after the album was recorded, the band broke up, leading Matt and his friend Michael “Bubba” Stallcup to start recording their own contemporary acoustic music. They spent nearly two years writing new songs, performing where they could, and then recording their own album, “Finally”.
One of their songs, a patriotic song about a boy going off to war, “I Watched Him Go”, got them invited to perform at Cannon Air Force Base for an “All-Enlistment Call”. Some of their other notable moments included two well-received local concerts, being an opening band during a “Communities for Christ Crusade” event, and getting their humorous Christmas song, “My Snowman Melted in New Mexico” on the radio.
Soon after high school, they went their separate ways, off to start their adult lives.
But Matt still had the bug.
Last week, Brian McKay discussed how strange it is for different generations to like Audio Adrenaline or Newsboys and be talking about completely different bands in his post "My Newsboys Can Beat Up Your Newsboys".
At the end of that column, we asked you, our beautiful and talented readers, to tell us which version of each of those bands were your favorites. Today, we share the results.
First, which version of the Newsboys did you prefer?

I’ve been listening to a lot of Audio Adrenaline lately.
No, not that Audio Adrenaline. Not even the 2013 Kevin Max version.
I’m talking about the current version of Audio Adrenaline, the one led by Adam Agee (formerly of Stellar Kart). I currently have their upcoming CD, “Sound of the Saints,” on pre-order, so I’ve been able to listen to a few of the songs, and I think they’re great.
However, not everyone thinks the same way about Audio A. My friend Jen, who was born in the 1980s, questions whether Audio Adrenaline should even still be called Audio Adrenaline. I know other people on the Internet have said the same.
See, people that listened to the original Audio A probably aren’t as open to a basically new band with the same name. However, I’m not that old. I’m still a youngin’. I never really knew much about the original band. So, I’m okay with this.
In the time that @BackRowBeliever has existed, we’ve created hundreds of original memes, captions, and reactions, with more being created every week.
We’ve shared them over time via our Twitter accounts, but now, we're finally bringing them to Instagram! Relive the best Christian memes from Back Row Believer and discover loads of memes you’ve never seen before.
