"Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom?" –Marvin Martian

On Facebook, Chris linked a wonderful set of images on imgur of drawings based on typos of well known movie titles.  They are pretty much wonderful.  I thought the bar would appreciate this one. It’s titled: Ron Man.  “A disgruntled government employee builds a robo suit in his garage to help him stop the government […]

Chris, I think both of those are legitimate responses.  It really feels like an abuse of power to me.  Very thought policey.  And what the heck, Texas?  I thought they were the bastion of liberty. Jaredd – here’s a piece about the rapture stuff you might find interesting by one of my Asbury Profs – […]

Matthew, I appreciate the #highhorse, but it would’ve been even better if you would’ve relayed a story of a personal conversation with BWIII, throwing in a witty remark you said that made him laugh, just as an aside. I didn’t think that video was harsh, but I’m just an Asbury guy.  I actually was dispensationalist […]

There is a lot of the manliness stuff I don’t get because it doesn’t apply to me. However, being on the outside of the evangelical circus has been helpful in this aspect, as I didn’t even know I should be concerned. Plus, in the Methodist Church it doesn’t take much to be manly. For example, […]

There is another way

to handle it when someone wonders what you think about the rapture.  You can prank them – not sure if you guys have seen this. The acting was on par with the Left Behind movies as well.

Speaking of Pre-mil Dispensationalism

As I recall, just about every time I’ve sat in on an NT Wright lecture/presentation, it seems he’s mentioned that the conversation about the rapture and whatnot is a very American thing that he really doesn’t hear over in England at all. I can’t wait for the invites to go see left behind to start […]

I can’t remember who retweeted TSK earlier today, but it seems like it was someone from the Tavern. Anyway, Andrew Jones wrote a nice piece on Ken Silva’s passing. In regards to the Naked Pastor blog, I read the comments for quite awhile after Matthew turned me on to them.  What a nightmare.  I’ll agree […]

After you die…

You get your angel wings Drew Dyck posted something on twitter last night about Elevation church, which brought to mind the “Hey Haters” video that Steven Furtick posted awhile back. Did any of you see that? It always gives me a good chuckle to watch it. But then I found this reworking of the video […]

It’s a goat eat goat world out there

Hello Angus! Chris – the question as to what exactly the text means is separate from the question of “Should we help poor people.” The belief that Christians ought to minister to the poor and marginalized is not dependent upon this one text, but rather a larger stream or narrative running throughout the entirety of […]

Maybe we’ll get lucky and the next time John MacArthur is recovering at home he’ll be stuck watching TLC and Honey Boo-Boo. I’d read that book. Ha! This makes me wonder what the book title would be if he watched the United Methodist General Conference or some of our Annual Conferences. What do you think, […]
