Yeah, OK. My personal blog is on hiatus, but I spent this week trying to talk some sense to Dan Edelen, and now I'm Pyroposting today ... at least I didn't post at my own blog.
And I wouldn't be posting here today, either, if I hadn't been working so hard at my day job. I was working like a slave for my boss, browsing the internet (don't laugh), and this ad turns up on the site I was trying to get something from:
Which is an interesting message to see on a wholly-secular web site. "Does God really know me?" So I stopped working long enough to see what's about to happen, and this is the next thing I see:
And that phrase -- "now restored" -- makes me a little antsy. My apologetics Spidey sense starts buzzing, and I feel like I need to jump out of the way. But I don't: I watch as the image as it morphs again, and I see this:
And it turns out there are like 3 or 4 different versions of this flash ad reaching out to people's felt needs, and claiming the truth about life's great questions is now restored.
Think about that, people: the Mormons are claiming to have restored the truth about God. That's nothing new if you're into Mormon apologetics, but in an environment when they are trying very hard to be seen as "another" denomination, they are actively saying they have "restored" the truth about God and life.
You blog about it. I'm on hiatus.
PS from Phil:
Hey! Let's not forget it's kitty-cat month here at PyroManiacs.
