Are You Testing Me, Satan?

Ok, so many problems here:


First, what does ‘useful’ even mean here?

Second, ‘So’?  How on earth does the second absurd claim flow from the first?  Behold, what leaps…

Third, theology is hardly useless.  Not only is it formational, but by that very fact it is not only useful but essential.  Someone needs to read Brunner’s Theology vol. 1 before he says something utterly unhinged.

Satan is testing me sore this afternoon by slathering my timeline with some really unspeakably inaccurate theological tweetings.  Why, Satan?  What have I done to you today?  Why must you use twitter to make me sigh?

    Also, God tells the Israelites to seek him for covenant blessings. And Jesus tells disciples to learn from him to receive rest. If people want those things, God is, in his kindness, ‘being useful’ to us.

    The first clue that there’s something wrong here comes in learning what Green has been reading (Brueggemann).
