Cindy Jacobs On The Leviathan Spirit

The Leviathan Spirit? WTH is she talking about.  Apparently this spirit is responsible for “divorce, family feuds, sibling rivalries, church splits, and even tribal wars.” Note, it’s not sin that’s responsible for these things. It’s some other spirit.

But here’s my favorite part:

If you have in your bloodline any animus, any Native American blood, for instance — not all Native Americans worshiped the serpent or crocodile, many did — but you might want to renounce that and repent for the generational iniquity,” Jacobs says. “If you are — perhaps you’re Mexican and you might have indigenous blood in you or Mayan blood — those who have Aztec blood in any way, you need to repent for the sin of animism before you begin to deal with this spirit.

June 6 Rapture?

Somehow I missed this…must be slacking off a bit. Anyways, Steve Fletcher (never heard of him) has predicted the rapture will happen on June 6, 2013. Since I am writing this at around 9:30 pm PST on June 5, that means that it is June 6 somewhere in the world. Any signs of an impending rapture?

And for your listening displeasure, I present to you, an interview with Steve Fletcher!

Farewell @JohnPiper

After yesterday’s tragic tornado in Moore, OK, I was waiting for some pastor to say something asinine on the internet. Well, that honor goes to “Pastor” John Piper.

The tweet has since been deleted.

Seriously? It’s hard to believe that you were a pastor! Not helpful. At all.

And for all those that favorited this tweet, you are being led astray by a false teacher. You should be ashamed of yourselves!

I can think of several verses that are way more helpful that this drivel you posted. Maybe it’s time to stop the bad attempts at theology when a natural disaster strikes. You sure have enough of them under your belt!

What I’m Reading: Theology Edition

I’ve started reading The Drama of Doctrine: A Canonical Linguistic Approach To Christian Theology by Kevin J. Vanhoozer. As I read the book, I will be posting quotes and thought (well, that’s the play anyway…)

Michele Bachmann’s Wrathful God

According to Bachmann, our nation has experienced judgment twice on 9/11…

This is some of the worst of the bad theology out there, in my not so humble opinion.

Please, make the stupid stop!

And this comes after a recent study that shows a belief in an angry God is associated with poor mental health

I’m just sayin’!

“The Thaw” Is Coming…

I posted this the other day on Tumblr and thought I would share it here.

All I have to say is ugh…
