A Major Announcement

Beginning today, June 17th, I will no longer be updating this blog. The domain will remain in effect until next January, when it will expire.

With my busy schedule, I just do not have the time anymore to run my own blog. I will continue blogging as a contributor over at Unsettled Christianity. I will continue to blog on theology (especially bad theology) and culture over there.

Wow, There’s EVEN an APP to Cure Lutheranism!!!!

Jim’s just jealous because Luther was way more fun than Zwingli!

Zwinglius Redivivus

Talk. About. A. Miracle!

Ref.ch informs us (no, really….)

«Setting captives free» heisst eine von einer religiösen Organisation in den USA bereitgestellten App, die seit März kostenlos für Smartphones und Tablets heruntergeladen werden kann. Sie verspricht Hilfe bei der «Heilung von Gewohnheitssünden» wie Drogen- oder Spielsucht durch Kurse, «in denen Christus das Zentrum ist». Auch «sexuelle Unreinheit» wie zum Beispiel Homosexualität Luthertum soll innerhalb von 60 Tagen geheilt werden können. Wie die Genfer Tageszeitung «Tribune de Genève» berichtet, hat Apple die App am 30. Mai aufgrund von Protesten zurückgezogen. Bei Android ist sie dagegen immer noch verfügbar.

Soon those hapless souls enslaved to the darkness of Lutheranism will be free.  Free before the end of Summer!  Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, they’re free at last!

No June 6 Rapture

This Just In:

Steve Fletcher has been proven to be a fraud as he joins the ranks of those with failed rapture predictions. Still no word from the “prophet” himself.

That is all!

June 6 Raputre Update

It’s just after 4 pm PST in Seattle, and this is your rapture update.

It is just after midnight on June 7th in Spain, France, and the United Kingdom. Guess what, no sign of the rapture. No comment yet from the failed prophet himself, Steve Fletcher. I’ll do one more update tomorrow morning, but I’m calling this one busted. Guess his “Bible lock” isn’t as accurate as he thought…

The New Legalism

Over the past few weeks, we have heard a lot of ridiculous things concerning what Christians can and cannot do.

It started off with, David Barton says Christians can’t drink Starbucks.

And now, there is this whole debate as to whether or not Christians can watch shows like Game of Thrones.

I don’t read much from Christian Piatt, but I think he nails it in his latest Huffington Post article.

Seriously, enough already. This is turning into a new legalism. See, if something is inherently anti-Christian and one participates in said thing, then one’s salvation is at risk. However, I do not think that drinking Starbucks or watching Game of Thrones will throw one’s salvation into question. It is nothing more than adiaphora. Just the latest in a rising tide of bad theology.
