Lots of Stuff In the News

There are several follow-up items to my recent series on "The OC--A New Burned Over District?" (The OC As Burned Over District)

The Phoenix Preacher has a very interesting take on what might happen at Calvary Chapel when Chuck Smith dies (he has stage IV lung cancer).  It does not look good:  On the Future of Calvary Chapel

Sadly, Robert Schuller has also been diagnosed with cancer.  Robert Schuller.  Please pray for both men (Smith and Schuller), and their families, despite whatever theological differences with them we have . . .  One thing is for sure, the religious face of the OC will continue to change.

According to the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, "if one person is offended, we have to listen."  Really?  Goodell is referring to the Washington Redskin's logo--which I concede is grounded in a racial stereotype.  I'm Offended!  Hey, what does that say about the Indians' Chief Wahoo?  I'm Swiss and English, and that logo offends me.  Have we really come to a place in our society when one complaint merits such consideration?  Sadly, I guess we have.  This is not true of the Riddleblog . . .  I get complaints all the time, and rarely consider them.

In the "sky isn't falling" department, yet another significant scientific study raises serious doubts about global warming.  Climate Change Overblown?

Good riddance to the Calvary Chapel movement - the demise can't come fast enough for me. This toxic, dysfunctional, spiritually abusive UNscripturally adminstrated group of "religious addicts" need to go the way of the Crystal Cathedral, hopefully to never return. I particularly like the summation of the group in the article you reference for distilling my disdain:

"They want to keep the “Calvary Chapel distinctives”, as well as the Moses Model and the emphasis on eschatology (code for Pre-Tribulation Rapturism)…along with separation from anything and anyone that smacks of Reformed theology and Calvinism." YUCK!

To Bob, I say, I agree.

I will be praying for Chuck Smith Sr. I am thankful for the early years, the beginnings of Jesus people worship music. And where that has flowed. I want to be part of a church that would sing some of those old worship songs some times. I don,t go anywhere right now. Pulled out of a Vineyard church. I am so tired of some of the crazy songs they were singing for one thing. Other issues too. And i years ago went to a Calvary Chapel Church until i was berated in front of people because i would not agree with a pre-trip rapture of the church and told the Pastor that i thought Hank Hanagraaff was right. I do some times take my wife to her Catholic Church. Don,t agree with all the theology but i want to go somewhere.
