If the Titanic Sank Today…



If People Treated Medicine Like they Do Biblical Studies and Theology

  • Someone who knew nothing about medicine but who read a wikipedia essay in the morning would be performing brain surgery at night.
  • Someone who had a medical dictionary and could consult it when needed would be invited to be a talking head on a documentary.
  • Someone who could use the internet to ‘look up’ the ‘truth’ would be allowed to write prescriptions and people would actually take them.
  • Someone who went to an hour long class at the age of 5 for 3 weeks would be permitted to practice medicine.
  • There would be a lot of dead people thanks to the malpractice that would be widely committed and yet very few would complain and everyone else would be muttering ‘well everyone’s entitled to their opinion’.

That’s what would happen if medicine were treated the way biblical studies and theology are treated.

Open Day At Ming Hua

Among the displays was this gem:


I wasn’t able to be there today but I loved my time there in January and look forward to returning.

Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh

Does Moltmann just make stuff up as he goes so it will fit on a bumper sticker?  Because this is just absurd.  It lacks scriptural foundation, it makes no sense, and it obliterates any sense of free will.  In Moltmann’s disturbed view, you have no choice at all.  God will force himself on you whether you like it or not.


Tune in next week when Molty says ‘Sacrifice is meaningless and God just really waved a magic wand and declared every person righteous.’

You Just Think You Have The Power to ‘Be Good’…

[But] so great is the power of concupiscence that men obey their evil impulses more often than their sound judgment, while the devil, who as Paul says (Eph. 2:2) is at work in the ungodly, never stops inciting this feeble nature to various offenses. – Philip Melanchthon

Poor Luther…

He’s become nothing more than a marketing ploy….  No worse fate can befall one.
