Twitter Theology that Makes me Sigh: The Student Who Didn’t Know Bultmann’s Birthday

Appalling!  Bultmann wasn’t born on August 18!  He was born on August 20.  Kids these days… it’s all one can do not to go all Postal on them.  So, for Todd, and all the others who know less than they should about the Marburg theologian- a book recommendation: Rudolf Bultmann was the giant of twentieth-century …

Twitter Theology that Makes Me Sigh

It sounds right, but it attributes to a book (a collection of books) that which in fact only the Holy Spirit of God can achieve.  To be sure, the Spirit uses Scripture, but it is an instrument, and nothing more. Emil Brunner often criticized the Protestants for their unthinking fealty to the ‘paper pope’ and …

Nope- Love isn’t God.  Scripture nowhere says love is God.  Saying love is God is idolatry, pure and simple.

I don’t know what ‘atop Babel’ is supposed to mean but I do know two things and they are historically irrefutable: The Bible was written by elites.  It wasn’t written for people who couldn’t read and in the ancient world that was just about everybody. The Bible was written for elites.  Those were the only …

“I fear that for many Christians the Bible is never more than an object for analysis, as opposed to the voice of the Beloved.” – @mikecosper False dichotomy.  It’s not either/ or it’s both / and.  Without analysis it isn’t Scripture that’s heard, but the mere imaginings of the reader.

This is what happens when ideology drives interpretation:  baseless supposition. The claim is false on its face.  Name one single author of one single biblical text that moderns (and that’s the anachronistic problem) would call oppressed.  Name just one, and then show me how you know that person was oppressed. I’ll wait.

It’s a paltry god what can be driven out at all.  That’s not the God of the Bible.  That’s the god of human imaginings.

Oh Molty… what are we going to do with you?  The ‘god’ you envision is utterly powerless and totally dependent on three women or else his entire plan falls apart?  Your God is too small.  You need a better theological hermeneutic than anthropocentrism.  Sigh.

Erm… “That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles’ feathers and his nails like birds’ claws.” (Dan. 4:33). Wouldn’t it be nice if people knew Scripture?  Before they …

No, it isn’t.  God is eternal.  Music isn’t eternal.  Music is temporal.  And if you had any theological training you’d understand that.

Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh

Once again Peter Leithart has shown himself to be more interested in catchy phrases than facts.  Chronicles begins with Adam and in no way can Adam be described as a ‘Royal tribe’. Leithart loves playing fast and loose with scripture just like he does history. UPDATE: and then this happened I’ll give him an A …

Maybe ‘preach the Gospel’ really should top the list instead of coming in as an afterthought…

Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh: And The Truth About Calvin’s Income

The sigh inducing claim: The truth In his Preface to the Book of Psalms, Calvin says: ‘People circulate ridiculous rumours respecting my treasures, my great power, and my wealthy sort of life. But if a man satisfies himself with such simple fare and such common clothing, and does not require more moderation in the humblest …

Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh: The Scottsdale Church That’s Marketing Baptism

And the sad thing is, they don’t even know how wrong this is or why. It isn’t surprising that the heretic Driscoll is involved though.
