Summary: Don’t just sit in the ocean but jump in the river

The Sponge bob Religion

Pastor Joe Bachman


Ps 78:15-16

15 He split the rocks in the wilderness

And gave them abundant drink like the ocean depths.

16 He brought forth streams also from the rock

And caused waters to run down like rivers.


This morning I want to talk to you about the spongebob religion

God can use anything to put together a message

How I came up with it title

How many of you know about spongebob?

Let me tell you some facts about spongebob

SpongeBob was created by Steve Hillenburg, a former marine biologist and science teacher who went to art school to study cartooning.

Hillenburg liked drawing marine life and thought sponges were the "oddest of all" these creatures. But the lumpy shape of natural sponges didn’t feel right for the character he wanted to create. A sink sponge turned out to be perfect—it’s so clean and so square,

SpongeBob lives in a pineapple

Hillenburg says he thought SpongeBob "would like the smell" of a pineapple home. Smell is a very important sense for sea animals.

SpongeBob was originally named SpongeBoy. However, that name was already trademarked

Tom Kenny, who does the voice of SpongeBob, says his character’s laugh was meant to make viewers think of the ocean.

It is based on the distinctive call of a dolphin, with just a touch of a seagull’s shriek.

According to SpongeBob’s driver’s license, he was born July 14, 1986. But he was already living on his own—and trying to get a job at the Krusty Krab—when the SpongeBob show debuted in 1999.

SpongeBob SquarePants friends include Killer whales, anchovies, Hammerhead Sharks, flounders, blowfish and lobsters.

So what does this all have to do with Christians and their walk?

It’s because a lot of us practice the SpongeBob religion.

Let me tell you why I feel this way

Where does spongebob live?

Look at the ocean

Ninety percent of all volcanic activity occurs in the oceans. In 1993, scientists located the largest known concentration of active volcanoes on the sea floor in the South Pacific. This area, the size of New York state, hosts 1,133 volcanic cones and sea mounts. Two or three could erupt at any moment.

What happens when a volcano erupts?

Changes the surroundings

So you see our friend spongebob lives in a land that is constantly changing

Folks when we look to a religion more then the bible we find ourselves living a life that is always changing.

Prov 24:21

21 My son, fear the LORD and the king;

Do not associate with those who are given to change,


But if we ground ourselves in his word we will never change.

Because his word does not change

Mal 3:6

6 "For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.


Everyone of us needs stability in our lives

We here a lot of people say get religion it will help.

The truth is religion a lot of times will make you even more unstable

Do you want real stability in your live don’t get religion

Get Jesus

Get his love letter in you life

Then you will have stability

Mal 3:6

6 "For I, the LORD, do not change;

Let’s look at something else about the ocean.

Undersea earthquakes and other disturbances cause tsunamis, or great waves. The largest recorded tsunami measured 210 feet above sea level when it reached Siberia’s Peninsula in 1737.

There is disturbances in spongebobs home

If we are going to live in the ocean of religion we will have disturbances

Because religion is world made

And what is in the world

Rom 8:35

35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?


you see the world wants to give you the gift of religion

it wraps it up in this nice little pretty package

it don’t want you to open it up

because inside you will find tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, sword?

God doesn’t offer you that

His gift wasn’t so pretty

His gift was his Son

Our gift was slapped, whipped, beaten then hung on a cross

That what our gift looks like on the outside

But this gift God wants us to open up

What do we find inside

Rom 6:23

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.


This gift dose not say you will not have

Tribulation – I will be with you

Distress- I will give you joy

Persecution- strength

It’s up to you today do you want the gift the world Religion

Or the gift God offers which is a relationship with his son
