Couldn't Make It Up

Kwanstainian Krisschannity

On the other hand, she is still better than Ted Haggard.

Damn, they used to say Lutherans were confused but I never understood why until I read this.

A few short years ago, this exact same article could have been a parody piece in The Onion. Kwanstainia has fallen so far, so fast it boggles the mind.

The distance that Rome fell in 150 years, the Kwa has taken only 10.

Next up, marriages to goats and geese with the honeymoon in public.

Check out some of that doctrine she is espousing.

Also, notice how it is always individual interpretation rather than the gospels themselves, as if group consensus counted for much more than what the book actually says.

Dangerous stuff. The temptations of Satan, and we are all Eve, desperately wanting those apples she dangles before us. Sometimes literally; I get the impression she'd walk on stage with bared breasts if it was germane to her point.

This is a symptom of the poor quality of education, public or private, and definitely religious, we receive. Seldom do people question what they are being told, but even more evil and insidious are the people who tell you: believe me, I am breaking you free from the mould others would force you into, even the moulds of other Christians.

She reminds me of my lesbian SIL, minus the Christianity. I would not want my children learning about God or anything else from a woman like her. I have given my allegiance to the Church of Rome, despite my many grievances with its politics and policies, and find some comfort that at least the RCC still has only men as priests and deacons.

The understanding that we are all sinners is only part of the equation. Understanding that God loves us despite our sins is another; but the critical part is our own obligation to recognize both truths and then live our lives as people worthy of both God's forgiveness and love. I find this is something Christians are loathe to do; they do not want to submit to any power, to any will, that tells them they have something for which to answer. Easier to walk away, hide from their actions and the attendant consequences, or just deny that God has anything to do with the slings and arrows of life.

It's that last part that makes modern Christianity effeminate, weak sauce. It's why the Church is losing Men, is losing masculinity. I've considered passages from the Bible from a feminist perspective. Women did have many an important contribution to the history of the Jews and the lineage of Christ, but always in the role of woman as nurturer, lover, caregiver, mother, and overall one subservient to the will of God and her husband, just as the men of the Bible were subservient to the will of God. It's a shame that ancient and profound wisdom has been co-opted to the Marxist-feminist-leftist cause. It's like the yoga people who take the highlights of an ancient Eastern tradition and think doing a few poses an hour or two a week bring them enlightenment and oneness.

Leftism is mental illness.

What is your opinion of the nascent iodine supplement Alex Jones is selling? Any use, particularly to those of us stranded in the 'Stain? At least, until God (justifiably) revokes our living privileges and unleashes Yellowstone?

If you ever hear people say there is no reason for all the strict, highly detailed ritualism described in the Old Testament, you have to consider that without the strictest rules humans will drift rapidly into all kinds of crazy alternative dogma.

The Old Testament jews kept a lid on all the cult variations that were constantly threatening to wreck anything like a uniform religious framework by being extremely specific right down to the cubit. It only takes one generation for a religion to split into hundreds of warring factions.

I was just telling my son this yesterday when he asked why all the measurements in Numbers. It was a good question and this was the answer I gave him.

Had only heard of it when you mentione it just now. Alex Jones mixes a lot of product selling into his pitches.

While I agree that ritual observance was befitting, given the child-like level consciousness of Old Testament Jews and the bondage conditions at the time, Faith in Christ supersedes this ritualistic aspect of religion and strict observance to the Law given that it supposes than human reason is ready and mature enough to practice restraint not not by force, but being in a state of grace through willingness and reason. This is backed up by Scripture:

Gal 3:23-25 " But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster".
