Quoting Quiverfull: Life Outside the Cult is Meaningless?

by Steven Anderson from Faithful Word Baptist Church - Meaningful vs. Meaningless LifeEditor's note: This is one of the big lies preached from the pulpit in Evangelical Christianity, that what you do only has meaning and purpose if you are a 'saved' Christian. It ignores that there are people that do many meaningful things to help others and don't couch it in religious terms or even believe in God.  They are making a difference in the here and now, not hording up possibly imaginary treasures in another dimension.Life has meaning no matter what you believe. This is the lie that preachers tell their followers to keep them hooked into the cult and afraid. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump, The ‘Christian’

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserThe majority of voting Evangelicals plan to cast their vote for Donald Trump come November. Their support of Trump is proof positive that Evangelicals have sold their souls to the Devil. James Dobson, arguably one of the patriarchs of Evangelicalism’s war against American culture, with a straight face, says that Donald Trump is a “baby” Christian. If Trump is a Christian, well Praise Jesus, Hallelujah, everyone, including atheists such as myself should have no problem making it to God’s Trump Hotel in the Sky®. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Send Your Children to Heaven or Hell?

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - To Heaven or Hell?Editor's note: This is actually a quote by Watchman Nee not Colin Campbell and his silly sounding ministry name.  Actually, 'Meat For Men' sounds like the title of a very bad porno film.

Why Baptists Refuse to Believe I was Once a Christian

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from The Life and Times of Bruce Gerencser(Editor's note: This is a pretty common reaction to people still Christians in your former life when you leave their church. They immediately love to tell you what you are, what you never were and where you're going because they cannot cope with the reality that you just walked away from the very thing they base their entire lives on. Have you dear readers experienced this? Well you're not alone.)My story poses a real problem for Baptists.  According to Baptist soteriology (doctrines pertaining to salvation), once nonbelievers are saved (born again, becomes a Christian), they can never lose their salvation. … [Read more...]

Jesus Christ With a Shield

It’ll be the first this winter and sounds like a good one. 6-10 inches, with our area getting the most snowfall. We thought we were stocked up, but when they bumped the forecast up from 1-3 inches and we saw that we the temp wasn’t forecast to rise above freezing for over a week, we double-checked our pantry.

Like the Poi Dog Pondering song, Sugarbush, “I’m from VT and I loves the snow.” … [Read more...]
