Read the post BELOW this one....

by Dan Phillips

True, I have one on tap that would probably cause revival to break out in America, then Europe, Asia, the rest of the world, and the space station....

And true, the first paragraph is untrue.

But I think Phil's post below, with its comments, is so important, that I want to give it another day. So go read that one, read the comments, marvel (as I do) at Phil's patience, grace, and charity, and don't even let the thought occur to you that Phil's probably just trying to top me for "most comments."

And now, since I've learned that Phil won't let me put up a post without a graphic, now matter how short the post is....



Now go to Phil's post. I'm serious. Hey -- you! Why are you still here? Go! I'm serious!

Dead horse... rabbit with some scotch pancakes on head. Pyromaniacs is turning in Monty Python's Flying Circus.

First of all, I have gone to the post below. I read it and all 100+ (?) comments, or at least scanned, blinked, re-read, then re-re-read, then saw Phil do the same thing in his written response form. (Indeed I have never seen him as courteous as in responding too many of these posts.)

The thing is, I am feeling left in the shallow end of the pool. I am far to ill-equipped to argue past ,
“Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

This is not a debate over the Lordship of Christ Jesus, it is (or at least it seems to be) a clearing house of man-centered theology and maybe continuation of the saved-then repentant or repentant-then-saved question (although how this is still a question is beyond me. Can the dead do anything?) Maybe it is more, like trying to turn Reformed confessions to the no-Lordship camp ( wha…?), or addressing assurance (didn’t Pink write a little on this topic?). Who knows, maybe I am just out of my league.

Still, I do have a comment to make, but I cannot find a place to make it. Seems that Scott McKnight delivered a paper in late October about “ What is Emergent/ing/ish” …or something. I read it and would like to ask a few questions. But that post has long sense been posted over and over.


So, here sit, in the grip of alka-seltzer cold plus, posting on a post about posting on another post,a comment that is only half commented on by the post I should be reading.

Wierd

Why Revival Tarries...(it's all Dan's fault)

rick said...

ah most comments ... I'm still waiting for those metrics. I hope we don't have to debate how God speaks through metrics.

You opted for a rabbit donning a pancake rather than a karate belt?

farmboy said...

First we're beating a dead horse, now we're following a rabbit (with pancakes on his head no less) down his trail. What's next, are we going to chase a wild goose?

He's got HUGE fangs! Look at the bones, man!

Aw, I haven't seen a pic of Oolong in a while.

Thanks Dan!

I just can't believe Phil hasn't Pyro'ed the pancake.

Dan: "I just can't believe Phil hasn't Pyro'ed the pancake."

I seriously considered it. But I was afraid it would obscure the fact that it was a pancake. It would look like the bunny is wearing a Pyro-beret.

Libbie said...

Pyro-beret? Where's the master-merchandiser?

Steve said...

Pyro-beret? Where's the master-merchandiser?

My thought exactly, too. Frank seems to have found his niche.

Maybe a pyro glent in its steely little eye?

marc said...

Woah Dan! You're a dispensationalist!?

Daniel Kropf said...

I definitely vote for the Pyro logo to appear in the bunnies eye. Like we're seeing a reflection of what it is looking at.

I am really frustrated with the fact that you are not consistanly doing the mouse-over comments on your pics anymore.

DJP said...

Heinrich! You punk!

Call me a rube, a bumpkin or just a dumb blonde but only 'scholars' or 'academics' could debate such a thing as Lordship. (I am not opposed to scholars!)

I've met 80 year old illiterate men in country churches who understand Lordship.

Perhaps I am not seeing the nuances in this debate. Wouldn't be the first time. :o)

Couldn't you put the pyro logo in the pancake like McDonald's does in their McGriddles?
