Politics Trumps Theology and Other Stuff from the Web

links%2011.jpgJohn Hagee once called the Roman church "the great whore." He also called the Roman church "apostate." But now that he's endorsed John McCain, Hagee is retracting all the mean things he said about the Roman church. The first and greatest evangelical political commandment is this: "Use your influence to get the right man elected." And the second is like it. "If it will help, apologize for all of the offensive things you said beforehand, even if those offensive things are truths deeply held." Click here: Pastor apologizes for anti-Catholic remarks

Check out the introduction to the Gospel of Luke in the new ESV Study Bible! This should be a great tool. (Coming in October--h.t. to Justin Taylor) Click here:

Lee Irons has posted an amazing video of old folks getting "jiggy with it" during the liturgy at the church of "What's Happening Now."   There is liturgical dance, there are paper mache giants, and you can almost hear them chant "great is Diana of the Ephesians!"  Amazing what happens in churches which don't see any use for the gospel.  Click here: The Upper Register Blog » Blog Archive » Mainline madness

Finally, with the new Indiana Jones movie soon to be released, this news release cannot be a mere coincidence. Archaeologist Helmut Ziegert from the University of Hamburg, claims to have found the remains of the 10th century BC palace of the Queen of Sheba, complete with an altar which once held the long-lost Ark of the Covenant.   Click here: Lost ark 'discovered in Ethiopia' - Telegraph

I loved the giant Muppett dancers!

That Lee Irons posting is beyond insane. How can those people just sit there and not question what they are witnessing? I saw nothing biblical or christian whatsoever in those proceedings. I guess it all started out with them being dumbed down to what the Bible says. From there, they can be led into any kind of foolery.

Indeed, that video is strange...and heterodox!!!
Another reason for us continental Reformed to recover the historic, biblical liturgy of the Church!

Re: the Ark in Ethiopia--the people that come up with these ideas have evidently never read much about the Ark of the Covenant. To suggest that is was Solomon's to give is silly.

I have a question that might seem kinda dumb, but it puzzles me: If I were to find the Ark and touch it, would I die? Would a person who did not have faith in Christ die if they touched it? It seems to me that all the terrors of the Law remain for those without faith in Christ, but is death by Ark one of them? Thanks for any insight anyone can provide!

Hey, NO FAIR!!
You are all forgetting 2 Hezekiah 9:6, which reads, "Thou shalt produce ridiculous displays of solemnly goofy nonsense. Thou shalt make huge paper mache cartoon people and parade them around a statue of Buddha, while some joyless quartet drones on in unison. I am the Lord."

Unbiblical indeed....

The worship video is a sign of our times. The economy is doing so poorly they couldn't afford a golden calf to dance around.
