Just in Time for Christmas

Meme-NoMoreViolenceYou might be looking for the perfect gift for your politically correct friend, who disdains violence. You want to be a good Christian and your friend to know the “truth” of a loving God, but the Bible has so much violence in it. So what do you do?

You give them the new “Violence-Free Bible“. It’s not consistent with God’s original revelation to the divinely-inspired authors, but the “translators” of this new version have more sensible and relevant understanding of today’s modern culture. In it, you’ll find a safe space for your mind. No more fascist God who judges people for rebellion. No more Old Testament violence against minorities. Instead:

  • Angered by humanity’s sin, God drowns the earth in a global flood of puppies and candy.
  • As a sign of the covenant, God commands Abraham to get a lit “Shalom” tattoo on his wrist.
  • The Israelites and their Egyptian captors collaborate to reduce their collective carbon footprint, causing the Red Sea to lower.

Are you tired of New Testament violence? Fixed!!!

  • When He’s about 33 years old, Jesus establishes a large megachurch at Calvary, has a successful, uplifting ministry, and eventually retires to the Sea of Galilee on his attractive 401K plan.
  • Ananias and Sapphira donate part of their allotted offering to the church, and the Apostle Peter asks them to stand and be recognized for their generous donation.

 

BUT WAIT!!!! That’s not all. If you order now, you’ll also receive this book, which is based on a true story, but is miracle free. No more crossing out the passages of those old translations that are scientifically unverifiable.

Passage like Genesis 2:7 Fixed!

Then the Lord God took a few thousand hominids formed from ape-like ancestors through evolution and breathed in them, and they became spiritual beings.

Tired of the Proverbs throwing religion at you? Fixed!

The empirical method is the beginning of knowledge.

Methodological Naturalism is the beginning of wisdom.

The fear of man is most important for today’s Christians to maintain academic respectability, but he who trusts in the Lord is naïve.

Even Jesus, who was wrong about science, gets his quotes from John 3:12 Fixed!

If I [Jesus] have told you earthly things like the fact that Adam and Eve existed ‘from the beginning of creation’ and the global Flood really ‘occurred’, and I’m wrong, don’t worry; just believe me anyway if I tell you heavenly things.

Al Franken and all the other Political Perverts

Sin isn’t a Democrat or Republican problem. Sin is a human problem with only one cure: Jesus!

The Domain for Truth

One of the news I read this morning is “Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It.”

I have been seeing the last few days the Left being up in arms against Roy Moore.  I saw some friends on social media rant against Republicans concerning that.  But the latest news reveal its not just Republicans and we should recall that there are also Democrats as well: Al Franken, Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton, etc.

These days it seems like every day there’s news of someone groping someone in the past.  It is hard to keep track of it.  For instance I was surprised to read Tom’s blog post, “Paragons of virtue?” where I learn that George H.W. Bush also have several women come forth with accusations.

My point is not partisan politics.  The point I want to make is spiritual.

Disney Deception

How many watched and liked Frozen? I’ll admit, I liked it too…and there’s still probably some good stuff to be gleaned from the themes – selfless love, redemption…

But I recently read the lyrics to its most famous song, “Let it Go”.

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation,
and it looks like I’m the Queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in;
Heaven knows I’ve tried
Don’t let them in,
don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel,
don’t let them know
Well now they know
Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don’t care
what they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway
It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I’m free!
Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry
Here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on
My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back, the past is in the past
Let it go, let it go
And I’ll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway!
The bold font is my addition to highlight the little deception that lies at the heart of the song. So, while the “Let it go” lyric is beautiful and catchy, do you think after seeing the rotten core of the song that “letting it go” might be pushing the boundaries for something else? It sounds to me like this witch with power has found freedom in coming out from behind societal boundaries to be “who she is”. Regardless of consequences or morals, she’s going to be herself. It’s the deceptive little sermons that get buried in the plain sight that are sometimes the most evil.
If instead of a disney princess witch singing these words, do you think the song would have caught on with all the little girls if this guy had been singing it in the movie? NOTE: Make sure your speakers aren’t turned up too loudly. 🙂

Thankfully, there is redemption from sin through Jesus. His grace is bigger than rebellion against Him.
