Why Christian Marketing Sucks — And Why It Must.

As one might expect, the leaders in the religion are doing their best to combat their groups’ losses with a public-relations and marketing blitz. Unfortunately for them, those efforts are doomed–thanks to the efforts of those selfsame leaders. [Read more…]

Fundagelical Preppers and the Problem with ‘Pokkalypses.

Last year I wrote about the rising numbers of fundagelical Christians getting into prepping, a subculture devoted to preparing for some imagined upcoming apocalypse. Not only are their efforts not actually very useful or helpful to anybody, but all this preparation speaks more to their own fear of change than to any possible future troubles the world might face. I’ll show you how today. [Read more…]

Lord Snow Presides #8: Meet Texe Marrs.

I’m looking at end-of-the-world conspiracy theorists right now and ran across a name I hadn’t heard before: Texe Marrs. I’m wondering how he’s managed to evade my notice until now, considering he clearly ran in the same sort of circles I did back in the late 1980s! [Read more…]

The Root of All Evil in the Broken System.

One verse most fundagelicals know well is 1 Timothy 6:10: the line about how money is the root of all evil. But I don’t think that’s true. I think, rather, that love of power is their religion’s big problem. [Read more…]

Preston Sprinkle Still Doesn’t Get It.

So Preston Sprinkle went into the overflowing hopper of Christians Who Think They’re Saying Something New and Exciting But Aren’t, and we all moved on. Then around Easter I caught wind of him proudly announcing that he’d written some more stuff on the subject and done a podcast or something, and I found myself groaning inwardly. [Read more…]

The Tell-Tale Heart of #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear.

I was even more interested in the responses to the stuff women are sharing on #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear. These responses reveal a lot about the religion and its direction–and why it is failing so fast and so hard. They are the reaction to a tell-tale heart in hashtag form. [Read more…]

Ed Stetzer’s Written an Easter Post and It’s Amazingly Bad.

In the grand tradition of glurge, his post not only fails spectacularly to persuade those who don’t already buy into the ideas contained therein, but it also says some really awful things about those ideas that the writer doesn’t realize are being communicated. [Read more…]

Robert Bentley is (What Passes For) Big Game Now.

One Christian minister rationalized the whole fiasco by claiming that Satan himself had gone a-hunting for this hapless TRUE CHRISTIAN™ politician. I wanted to focus more on that statement today, because I think it’s a sign of the major error in Christian thinking. [Read more…]
