On social news site Reddit, there’s a particular strain of Christan memes that are becoming increasingly popular—and they’re not the type of posts that your grandparents or pastor might share on Facebook.
They’re dank memes—they just happen to revolve around the body of Christ.
What makes a meme dank? It’s hard to define, but the term is generally reserved for especially potent memes, those whose entertainment potential hasn’t been exhausted. There’s an implicit freshness to them.
That’s especially important to Reddit’s Dank Christian Memes. The community has its own commandments:
1) Dank memes only
2) NO SATAN ADMIRATION
3) Thy postings shall be about god or made by christians or something
4) Thou shalt post whatever as long as its relevant
5) Honor thy father and mother
6) Thou shalt link directly to the meme, not to twitter or a blog.
Here are some of the best Christian memes we’ve comes across thus far.
Some memes humanize Christ.
This one might take a minute to sink in.

Thanks be to God for these dank memes.
