tamingtiger

Remember Kung Fu Kristian Tony Anthony? He's back with a recycled book. Mark Woods at Christian Today is on the case.The Guardian called Anthony a "serial fantasist." I can think of a couple of other folks described by that phrase.Well, he's back with an edited book which he says is substantially the same.  Buyer beware. … [Read more...]

Patheos Links of Interest: Kirk Franklin, Anxious Bench, Godless in Dixie, Stacy Dash, Kyle Roberts

Reading an Anxious Bench post by Thomas Kidd, it occurred to me that Patheos is a very diverse site. With that in mind, I decided to go exploring. Here I am going to post some links I found interesting. I am not recommending everything said by these authors but am posting them because I think they might be of interest to readers.Should Evangelicals Embrace the “Benedict Option”? Well, should they/we?We Love Close Calls… Until They Happen to Us - Nice devotional post on waiting through har … [Read more...]

Message to Glenn Beck and Fellowship Church: Congress Didn’t Print the Aitken Bible

In addition to faulty theology, there are several glaring historical errors in Glenn Beck's talk to Fellowship Church on July 5. Sadly, the audience is less knowledgeable now than before he spoke. Here is one example.Glenn Beck told Fellowship Church that the first thing Congress did after the United States won the Revolutionary War was to print a Bible in English. Watch:Transcript: Don't let anybody tell you we are not a Christian nation because we absolutely are a Christian … [Read more...]

David Brooks Wants Us to Fight a Different Culture War; Retraining Required

Brooks is a good writer and makes a good case for what I consider to be the right position.In essence, he says evangelicals have lost the culture war over sexual matters, and so should consider being more like the Salvation Army than the Moral Majority. Become useful again. Actually, there is a lot of that going on and Brooks says evangelicals should become known for our good works of community as opposed to outrage over gay marriage.It is hard to look at the ministry of Jesus and find … [Read more...]

Glenn Beck Tells Ed Young’s Fellowship Church: We Are a Christian Nation

LDS Gospel doctrine teacher Glenn Beck told Southern Baptist Fellowship Church on July 5: "We are a Christian nation, period."Watch:As I have pointed out, Beck's church believes the founding fathers were baptized into his LDS church by coming in spirit form to a former LDS president and asking for redemption. So even rational Unitarian Thomas Jefferson is now a Mormon (according to the Mormon Chronicle).Any Tyndale scholars in the house? I don't think Beck got Tyndale's last … [Read more...]

Fellowship Church Spokesman Says LDS Doctrine Teacher Glenn Beck’s Knowledge of History is Unmatched

UPDATE: Beck defended his appearance; says he won't teach theology. I dispute that here and note that the LDS believe the founders were redeemed into the church via baptism.Nicola Menzie's Christian Post article examined the evangelical megachurch fascination with Glenn Beck, but Fellowship Church's statement about Beck's knowledge of history stood out to me.  Unmatched? Unmatched in error perhaps, but I think the clueless spokesman meant it as a compliment. The full quote was Glenn … [Read more...]
