“Bible Basher”

The caption on this video says, “A Christian Bible basher outside Glasgow University.” What do you mean “Bible basher”? A guy handing out tracts is automatically a “Bible basher”?

Religulous: Speaking in Tongues

So really, who takes Religulous seriously? Well, a lot of non-believers, for one thing. But do they really matter? Most Christians have avoided the documentary altogether, and it’s not surprising. But are all the concerns that Religulous raised invalid? Maybe not. In fact, it makes a lot of sense to me why people see Christians speaking in gibberish and equate it to the Holy Spirit and think that Christians are a bunch of idiots.

Yes, the gospel is foolishness to those who are perishing– but to us it is the power of God. But isn’t it enough that the word of the cross is foolishness? Must we create some foolishness of our own to put on top of that? Christianity isn’t about being foolish, although some Christians seem to have adopted the concept of foolishness as their very own doctrine. Why are some Christians so intent on getting people to have some sort of mystical experience where God starts speaking unintelligible words through them? Does God really want that? Does God get kicks out of us speaking in gibberish? Does God want us to worship Him mindlessly? That seems to contradict one of the means of the directive to “Love the Lord your God.” How are we to love the Lord? With all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Do we love God with all our heart at one time, and then move on to our soul, and then move on to our mind, and then move on to our strength? Or ought we not to do them all at once? Paul’s message in 1 Corinthians 14:14 seems pretty clear: “For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful.” If your mind offers no fruits of worship to God, is that really a worthwhile way to spend your time? What’s Paul’s response in verse 15? He asks: “What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.” Love God by praying with your spirit AND your mind. Don’t waste time praying in “tongues” that you don’t understand but rather pray with intelligible words — with your spirit AND your mind!

WARNING: Explicit language (one scatological phrase)

Is this tolerance? Talk about hate-mongering.

Oh, my goodness. I thought liberals push for tolerance. This is something you’d never see on the liberal media. They only tend to show the morons on the radical right.

I think that the most telling part of this video is when they take the cross from her and trample it on the ground. I think that they did that because they know that Romans 1:18 is true: “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.” I hope (& I would imagine) that this woman was expecting that “all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,” (2 Tim 3:12) and that she wasn’t too discouraged by this encounter. It’s important that we as Christians don’t neglect telling ALL sinners that they need to repent and believe in Jesus–liars, thieves, adulterers, homosexuals, murderers, idolaters, etc.

Total depravity is a sad state. Pray that God will change the hearts of those on the radical left, and the hearts of those on the radical right, and bring them to a saving knowledge of Jesus.

Atheism: Laughable and Blasphemous

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1a)

ATHEISTIC ASININITY: My Cat is a Christian (& other reasons Christians are dumb)

Edward Current has some very humorous videos on youtube which were made to criticize Christians from an atheistic worldview.

Here’s one of the more amusing (if blasphemous) ones. Maybe we can sic PETA on him for the baptism:

In this next video, Mr. Current actually takes the time to try and explain why Christianity isn’t rational (which makes more sense than attempting to make a valid case for atheism). You be the judge of how well he represents Christians. This one may be worth responding to in depth sometime:

Perhaps I could take him seriously if his worldview could account for rational thought. Well, I suppose he’d still have to renounce his straw man arguments, which would leave his video with… pretty much nothing.
