What Makes a Man?

I don’t think this guy is right. Just a feeling, but I think there is a bit more to being a man than what he pulls from his good ole’ KJV, the language of Jesus and St. Paul.

Makes you think twice about the translation of the Bible you use. NASB? NKJV? Heaven forbid you NIV folk?

J. Geil’s Band anyone?

    WOW. Oh my goodness. He is funny, but on the other hand I feel sad for him and his hearers because he is so obviously wrapped up in issues that are hardly central to the Gospel. Just a guess – but I think Jesus would pee sitting down if his host asked him to. Or should I say that he would pisseth sitting down?

    Oh my. Oh my. Oh my. What else can I say? I watched this with mouth agape.

    I think I see where you’re going with this, Paul–a new sermon series, perhaps?

    HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! That’s great! I love it. I needed something to laugh about. Maybe we should remove all the stalls in the men’s bathroom.

    He just seems so mad. Even if your mad at the congregation your preaching to don’t give them ammo to use against you.

    Those poor Germans.

    I feel sick seeing that, realizing that it represents a smidgen of the religion and thinking that I have left in the last year. One of the things that exists in those circles is a belief that every pastor at every church is “God’s man for the church.” It is such a sacred belief that even to question its truth is considered wandering dangerously close to opposing God himself and risking hell. To be in a church under this guy and have that belief held over you would itself be hell.

    This is funny but it is also sad/disturbing. Sad because there might be a valid concern underneath all of this preacher’s King James only, anti-European, uber-macho religiousness. There is a lot of important conversation in our world and, especially, within the church that is precluded because of such forms of “discourse”.

    Funny, yes. Problematic, more so.
