Top Ten Tuesday: Theology of the Princess Bride

The Princess Bride is one of my all time favorite movies. I had it mostly memorized in Grad School, and wrote a list of "Everything I needed to Know I learned from the Princess Bride" (in the era of "Everything I needed to know I learned in kindergarten"--which is now taught in preschool, not kindergarten). So here are my top ten theologically relevant lessons from the Princess Bride:

10. There isn't much money in revenge.
9. When things go wrong, go back to the beginning.
8. Rush a miracle, get a rotten miracle.
7. True love is the most noble cause of all (except for a nice MLT, where the mutton is nice and crispy...)
6. Sometimes it's just the name that's important.
5. Lies do not become us.
4. Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean it can't be done.
3. Life is pain, and anyone who tell you otherwise is selling something.
2. As you wish sometimes means I love you.
1. Death can't stop true love; it only delays it a while.
