What could be wrong with it…
I guess no normal person has reviewed it…
Citing a desire to make sure he’s around for the next big eschatological event, prophecy expert and pastor John Hagee placed himself into his home’s specially installed cryogenic freezer Wednesday afternoon, leaving instructions that he’s not to be thawed out until just before the beginning of the next expected lunar “blood moon” tetrad in the spring of 2032.
“I can’t bear to think of entering glory without getting to experience at least one more season of wild prophetic conjecture,” Hagee told reporters moments before kissing his family goodbye and stepping into the icy chamber expected to be his home for the next fifteen years or so. “I promise, when I get out, I’ll immediately set to work on a new book interpreting the inspired heavenly signs.”
“Though I’ll have to catch up on the current events to make it all fit together, of course,” he said with a good-natured chuckle. “Those newspaper headlines aren’t gonna exegete themselves, after all.”
Waving farewell to mankind for the next decade-and-a-half while Larry Norman’s premillenial anthem “I Wish We’d All Been Ready” played majestically in the background, Hagee stepped across the threshold of the state-of-the-art cryo chamber and into the history books, a large window on the front of the chamber allowing reporters to snap pictures of his rapidly freezing countenance.
And yes, Christian Zionism is heresy and Hagee is it’s chief proponent.
I had the honor of meeting Peter years ago when he was the chief at TVZ. It was he who gave me a tour of the publisher’s facilities and who gifted me with a volume on the Barmen Declaration.
He’s a wonderful person and you should get to know him.
Peter tanzt auf vielen Bühnen, aber immer mit klarem Fokus: Der Pfarrer und Kolumnist versteht sich als Übersetzer. Damit die Leute merken: Diese geistige Welt, die der Bibel, die der Literatur, das ist auch unsere Welt, unsere Wirklichkeit. Das ist nicht irgendein altes Schriftstück, das niemanden mehr interessiert. Das ist Kultur. Das hat Wert. Für uns alle. Es sei die Aufgabe der Theologen, eine warme und lebendige Sprache zu sprechen, sagt er, «auch wenn man über Religion spricht». Gute Journalisten haben eine gute Sprache. Und gute Theologen eben auch.
Christian History Institute has compiled information about some of the key events in Christian History, and has arranged it in an easy-to-use format for personal or group study. Each era of church history is represented by thirteen modules, and there is also information on the Reformation. These free resources are available for download.
The Reformation modules pick up in 1300 and run through the early part of the 1600s. This segment covers topics such as John Wycliffe, Luther’s Catechism, John Foxe, and the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre.
I read that and thought right off of the folk who cite Strong’s concordance in an attempt to persuade others of their linguistic skills or that lot which use an interlinear. They ‘know’ enough Hebrew and Greek to make the person who knows neither think they are a scholar of both.
I love Jerome. A straight-talker if ever there were one.
