Friday Funnies-Seeker Sensitive Mega Church Guy

This is a very funny parody of a lot of the seeker sensitive churches, and their over emphasis on "gimmicks" at the expense of the truth. This is a play on the commercials that we saw several years ago from Budweiser. Here is an example of those very funny commercials. Sorry to all of the discount airline pilots out there. :-)

Quote Of The Day

“But there are some who say, “It is hard for God to choose some and leave others.” Now, I will ask you one question. Is there any one of you here this morning who wishes to be holy, who wishes to be regenerate, to leave their life of sin and walk in holiness? “Yes, there is,” says some one, “I do.” Then God has elected you. But another says, “No: I don’t want to be holy; I don’t want to give up my lusts and my vices.” Why should you grumble, then, that God has not elected you to it? For if you were elected you would not like it, according to your own confession. If God, this morning, had chosen you to holiness, you say you would not care for it. Do you not acknowledge that you prefer drunkenness to sobriety, dishonesty to honesty? You love this world’s pleasure better than religion; then why should you grumble that God has not chosen you to religion? If you love religion, He has chosen you to it. If you desire it, He has chosen you to it. If you do not, what right have you to say that God ought to have given you what you do not wish for?
Supposing I had in my hand something which you do not value, and I said I shall give it to such-and-such a person: you would have no right to grumble that I did not give it to you. You could not be so foolish as to grumble that the other has got what you did not care about. According to your own confession, many of you do not want religion, do not want a new heart and a right spirit, do not want the forgiveness of sins, do not want to be holy, you do not want to be elected to these things: then why should you grumble? You count these things as worthless, and why should you complain of God who has given them to those whom He has chosen?” - Charles Spurgeon.

Friday Funnies

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer.

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know me?’ She responded, ‘Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I’ve known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you’ve been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you’re a big shot when you haven’t the brains to realize you’ll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.’

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, ‘Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?’

She again replied, ‘Why yes, I do. I’ve known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He’s lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can’t build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.’

The defense attorney nearly died.

The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,‘If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I’ll send you both to the electric chair.’

Quote Of The Day

"Seeing that God has given us such a treasure and so inestimable a thing as His Word, we must employ ourselves as much as we can, that it may be kept safe and sound and not perish. And let every man be sure to lock it up securely in his own heart. But it is not enough to have an eye to his own salvation, but the knowledge of God must shine generally throughout the whole world."

This So Called Pastor Is Really Serious!!!

ALERT: This post is not intended to offend anyone, but this kind of crazy preaching needs to be "called on the carpet."

This is one of the things wrong with the extreme independent fundamental baptist KJV-only branch of Christianity. I did not know whether to laugh, cry, or scream at the computer screen.

I feel for the congregation that has to sit through this stuff every Sunday. I pray that God's grace still finds its way into the hearts of the people that hear this kind of nonsense.

If you want a better explaination of what this phrase means, you can read more about it here and here and here and here. Make sure you read the comment sections as well.

The pastor is Steven Anderson, pastor of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona. The church has a website and he also has a blog. He has never been to college or seminary. He actually believes going to college is a SIN.

(I Sam 25:22, 34; I Kings 14:10; 16:11; 21:21; II Kings 9:8) 6 times this phrase is found in the KJV.
