Lutheran Advent Calendar




I'll bet some of you are thinking, "I knew it."  (h.t. Rod Rosenbladt)

I'm thinking, "that's not a bad idea!"  All I need is some cardboard and a sharpie and I can really spruce up my little fridge in my study.

Sorry, but you Southern Baptists are out of luck . . .

Knew what?

I'm thinking maybe I'm glad I don't get it.

Amen!! I love it!!

I think what bothers me about this is I'm about to head to my church, which happens to be an LCMS church, for midweek advent services. One thing I'm growing tired of from this blog and other like them is the veiled ridicule that goes on.

And as if there isn't enough of my own sin to distract me from the service tonight, I'm certain I'll remember this little joke... Normally I wouldn't post something like this, but I really am tired of it.

I think it's hilarious. If Kim drinks enough of it he might also become a postmillennialist. :)

Veiled ridicule? What veil?
December 13, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterPhil M.

I want one.

That's just horrible...

...the 1's look like 4's or 7's! :( Booo!

HA HA all you guys who don't get it don't worry it is just a joke. If it really bothers you that much then maybe this is not the blog for you. I don't drink but think that is funny.

As a former Lutheran and a current Reformed Baptist I get the joke and applaud the humor behind it. I'm just disappointed that he wasn't using the Sin Boldly brew from Old Lutheran.

I'm a total abstainer and former heavy drinker, and I think it's hilarious.

If I may, there's a difference between poking fun and having a judgemental attitude. I can assure you, from listening to Kim over the years and reading his articles, he is one of the most fair-minded and kind individuals, especially of those Christians who hold to a different theological view than he.

Over the years I've heard from him countless phrases like, "...and our Dispensationalist friends" or "...our Lutheran brothers..."

Poking fun is, well, fun. And it usually involves satire, one of the highest and most effective forms of humor. Mean-spirited or sinful Kim is definitely not.

uh-oh, another post which revolves around alcohol! i think the last one was that huge fridge stocked full of beer. i think that one generated something like 153 posts.

i think the usual (and predictable from both sides) back and forth brings to the surface just how deeply seated moralism is in american religion and how the topic alcoholic consumption really brings it out. one side gets all hot and bothered by suggesting that alcohol even exists, the other works out its demons from having been so ensconced in the other side...interesting.

Atleast draw the 1s better whoever makes one of those. I was tricked, I thought it read "47" instead of 17. I was thinking, "there aren't 47 days in December!"

That's not fair, those Lutherans have all the fun. Almost makes me want to join up.

I wonder if I'm breaking the tenth commandment because I keep thinking: "Why didn't I think of that?"

I agree with Peter about stocking it with "Sin Boldly", and perhaps Kim should work a deal to have it marketed by Old Lutheran.

Tyler, I think the photo used must have been taken in Europe, where they make their 1s and 7s that way.

After a while I'm sure all the numbers just blur together anyway.

Will this be at this Christmas party?

Since I only drink girly drinks, do they make this w/ pineapples & umbrellas?

Is this a veiled commercial for Bittburger ("Bitte ein Bitt")?

I'm glad to see some people still have a sense of humor!

Hahaha @ Andrew! Oops, guilt by laughter.

And Ron, true. Those wacky Europeans!
