Bible and Book Burning on Halloween

Tired of the same old "Harvest Party" at your church while all the heathens are collecting candy? Instead of hosting a hayride, why not do what this church is doing to pursue purity.

On October 31st, 2009 starting at 7:00 pm the Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, NJ will be starting a bonfire to burn all the perversions of God's Word they can find. Who knows, with a burn list as long as they have, they might be continue to be hot and bothered until the 2nd Coming.

Here is more from their invite:

"We are burning Satan's bibles like the NIV, RSV, NKJV, TLB, NASB, NEV, NRSV, ASV, NWT, Good News for Modern Man, The Evidence Bible, The Message Bible, The Green Bible, ect. These are perversions of God's Word the King James Bible.

We will also be burning Satan's music such as country , rap , rock , pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel , contempory Christian , jazz, soul, oldies but goldies, etc.

We will also be burning Satan's popular books written by heretics like Westcott & Hort , Bruce Metzger, Billy Graham , Rick Warren , Bill Hybels , John McArthur, James Dobson, Charles Swindoll , John Piper, Chuck Colson, Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart, Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham , Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn , Joyce Myers, Brian McLaren, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa , The Pope , Rob Bell, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning, William Young, etc.

The Scriptural bases for what we are doing each year is found in Acts 19:18-20 "And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed."

It's not all hell fire and damnation though. At least their menu sounds appetizing.

"We will be serving Bar-b-Que Chicken, fried chicken, and all the sides."

Wow. With a name like "Amazing Grace Baptist Church" I'm missing both the "Amazing" and the "Grace" in this book burning fiasco. This is the kind of stuff that makes Christian look like hair-brained nutcases to the people who are just trying to figure out if Christ's love REALLY translates to real life.

Love the Lego scene, by the way. That's the only thing that makes me smile about this church's ridiculous display of self-righteousness.

Hey, they can't be all bad. At least they are burning rap music. Lol. The other thing that occurs to me: will they be barbecuing over the bonfire? These are the kind of people I would love to meet in a dark alley sometime.

Yeah, those books by Wescott & Hort have been on the bestseller lists for far too long.

I knew Billy Graham with all of his Jesus talk and ministry was a servant of Satan.

Wait, what? :(

Luke 9:49-50 (King James Version)

49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

Are they burning books from their own pre-exsisting collections or do they have to stop by the stores first and stock up?

Glad to see a church, not the state, is bringing Bradbury's story to life.
