No More Breakfast For The Christians

I'd never eat some of those things for breakfast anyways, but darn I'm going to miss the Captain Crunch. Hope there will be some waiting in Heaven.

Tired of an Unplugged Jesus?

From the book, by James Langteaux
"But can it be that this powerless figure has been poorly portrayed by those in the seats of religious power? Those in power wish to remain in power, and if real power threatens their control, then maybe the power itself has to go.

Since real power cannot be contained, controlled, or created, it is a frightening thing to purvey to a people in need. What if it is too much, not enough, not on time, or out of line? Power is a dangerous force. In cannot be forced or coerced.

True power from on high is power that will electrify, and when it is present, you cannot stand by unaffected. It’s electric; its divine; and it is always right on time. Never early, ever late. Our God sometimes wants to make us wait. It is all about Him and not about us. It’s all about His power and our willingness to trust.

I don’t know about you, but I’m happy to lose my religion if it means saying good-bye to empty rituals and fading icons that say, “I can’t.” I don’t want leaders, teachers, preachers, or anyone else selling me a version of God that is anything less than He really is.

What if the real Jesus, the God we never knew, was always there and always true? What if we’ve been kept in the dark while we listened to the right, and the left, and the religious bark? Like the carnies that roll into town to get what they can while they shake us all down. They use colorful lights on fast-spinning rides; they sell us tickets and junk food and sugar spun wide. We shouldn’t be shocked, amazed or surprised. When the power hits, the looters will thrive.

Chaos rules when darkness falls. And God won’t fit in man-made walls. The games we’ve played in Jesus’ name are rigged and bogus, and the prize is lame. An unplugged Jesus, plastic and small, that looks like junk on anyone’s wall. I want my money back. Keep your religious bric-a-brac. We’re all sick of this obvious, powerless, con.


Jesus Loves the Little Stereotyped, Racist, Puppet Children

At least the puppet masters realized that the song creators forgot about the brown children that Jesus loves.

I think the Squirrel was running some of the puppets.

Bring Your Weapon To Church Day

When I went to Sunday School we'd get points for bringing our Bibles (otherwise known as "The Sword of the Spirit"), points for finding verses first (known as "Sword Drills"), and even points for standing up and singing, "Onward Christian Soldiers" at the top of our lungs.

A church in Kentucky has raised the bar. Now you can get points for actually bringing your gun. Don't worry, if you don't have one, you can enter the drawing to win one. I'm sure they will pray before the drawing to ensure that Jesus lets the right person win a weapon.

The pastor told the Louisville Courier-Journal the Saturday "Open Carry Church Service" promotes responsible gun ownership and 2nd Amendment rights. I wonder why they chose a font that looks like splattered blood then?

Other local religious leaders were against the idea of hosting gun related church gatherings. The Rev. Nancy Jo Kemper of Lexington said the event "would nauseate Jesus."

Pagano countered. "Not every branch of Christianity is pacifistic,"

The Cussing Pastor or the Driving Dufus?

Actually, Ed what some of us watching your video are thinking is this:

“I can’t believe you are doing this! You’re a pastor, who communicates to people. The head of Fellowship Church…”

“Who cares if a lot of young leaders are using words like "sucks, and screwed and hell and damn." What some of us think is that this little rant of yours is just an attempt to “be cool” - the same motivation you accuse them of with their filthy language.”

Yes, we do have the opportunity to communicate the joy, the mystery of the Gospel of Christ, but it sure isn’t rules about what words you can and can’t say, or do you have an approved list somewhere on your blog?

You say we aren’t taking the time to think through how we need to communicate? How about not using enough common sense to shoot a video while driving your car? You don’t want to offend me with your language? You’ve offended me with your video.

Sticks and stones may break bones, words may inflict wounds, and your inattentive driving may kill people.

Be careful, that’s what I’m saying. Be wise as a serpent, Ed, and harmless as a dove.
