"God is OK, I guess..."

by Sewing

Tom Chantry said...

Hilarious! But I predict that fans of at least half of your "authors" will object, and many of these will have entirely misunderstood the point of your jokes.

For Example:

"What have you got against Jonathan Edwards!?!"

"Who says Phil Johnson doesn't have any guts?"

"Who are you to question whether N.T. Wright has a soul?"

You know it will happen. I would recommend you stay out of the comment thread. Let this be a "drive-by-blogging." You've dropped your payload, now kick in the afterburner and fly off over the horizon.

Oh, and by the way, Okay, Now THAT's a Cult!, by Hugh Hewitt - LAUGH OUT LOUD, dude!

DJP said...

You should see what I left off, Tom.

JackW said...

I think I need to call a foul on myself as I didn't follow the correct format. Zen Tent Making should have not been by McLaren ... Johnny Mac would have been closer to the point. Thanks for not calling me on it!

FX Turk said...

For the record, I saw the one that Dan left off, and it was such a barn-burner that even TeamPyro can't possibly say it out loud.

So you can imagine how cutting-edge and brutal it was.

Brutal, I say.

FX Turk said...

And don't plead with Dan to post it. He won't -- he has too much personal love and affection for the Christian community.

And don't petition Phil -- he'll say no.

And don't ask me. I want to remain a member in good standing [sic] at TeamPyro.

holmegm said...

I don't get the Wilson one - could somebody explain it to the humor-impaired (i.e. me)? :)

Why the record growth of Pentecostalism around the world is bad for Christendom

Freedom from man made yokes: Accepting modern English and music in our churches (esp. for you KJVO's)

Is it possible that Dan has set a record comment number here? I seldom keep track, but this is approaching the 200 mark. Woo hoo.

Solameanie said...

Another question.

Philip has been conspicuously absent on this comment line. And I thought for SURE Pecadillo might chime in with something. Whazzup here?

The Feminine Divine in Ancient Mediterranean Culture by Mark Driscoll

Glad you like Driscoll's title. I thought that was my weakest one!

And I agree that the best thing is that that everyone can get on board with this and have fun with it. Even Calvinists need to spread a little love around once in a while! ;)
