This Week's White Horse Inn

The Parables of Jesus (Part 2)

What is the point of the parables? Is there a moral to the story that we should all look for and attempt to follow? Is the point of the wicked tenants parable that we should all try to be good tenants, or is there something else going on here? On this broadcast, the hosts will discuss these questions as they unpack the parable of the wicked tenants and others related to it. And as they will show, Jesus and his forthcoming crucifixion at the hands of Israel's unfaithful shepherds is really what these messages are all about.


Who Said That?

"They say we're apathetic . . . . They say we're not energized.  Well, you know, I'm a preacher.  There's a story in the Bible about a man named Ezekiel.  Ezekiel saw a valley full of dry bones.  Somebody said, 'Can these bones live?' And the way he made them live was he started connecting them together . . . . `If we can connect these bones' . . . `we can make America breathe and America live as one nation under God.'"

Who said that?  Leave your guess in the comments section below.  Please no google searches or cheating.  Answer to follow next week.

Miracles? Not So Fast! UFOs? No Problem . . .

The Rev. Barry Downing, a retired Presbyterian minister living in the UK, has trouble accepting the historicity of the miracles in the Bible.  Many people do.  That is why they are theological liberals!

But Rev. Downing is not satisfied with the usual path taken by the libs--that the events are mythological.  No, he says the miracle stories in the Bible are not mythological.  Instead, they reflect human encounters with superior alien technology.  Not miracles, but UFOs

Take, for example, the miracles associated with Israel's exodus from Egypt.  God didn't part the Red Sea, a spaceship did.  Says Downing, "The Jewish people didn't know about Einstein's theory of relativity or about force fields and so, the language they use is like a stunning glance: The Lord in the pillar of cloud and the fire looked down."

Those poor unenlightened fundamentalists . . .  How do they miss the obvious?


Antichrist . . . He's Not Nice . . .

You should all be thankful that the only musical training I had was three years of playing trumpet in junior high school!  Just imagine for a moment what I could do if I knew how to play the keyboard and sing.

We'd have an Amillennial song to compete with "Doom and Gloom!"
