A pastor is encouraging people to donate to his Tulsa church so they can become an online member and get his signature on a religious exemption from coronavirus vaccine mandates. The pastor, Jackson Lahmeyer, is a 29-year-old small-business owner running in the Republican primary challenge to Sen. James Lankford in 2022.
Not a pastor. Grifter.
James Sakara, the pastor of a Zambian Christian church, was found dead after asking to be buried alive in the ground so he could come back to life in three days’ time, like Jesus…
To say that 22-year-old Sakara was overconfident in his ability to emulate the resurrection of Jesus Christ would be an understatement.
But you are crazy.
Be that as it may, the pastor of the Zion Church in the Zambian town of Chidiza managed to convince his congregation that he could in fact come back to life after three days, just like the Son of God.
No theologians were on the premises.
He somehow got three members of his Church to assist him by digging a shallow grave, tying up his hands, and burying him alive, only instead of coming back to life after three days, Sakara was found dead by members of the Zion Church curious to see why their leader hadn’t fulfilled his promise.
Curious were they….
Reminder, friends, you aren’t Jesus.
This trash piece makes that clear.
Every bit of this is aggressively ignorant. Invincibly ignorant.
1- They’re lousy theologians.
2- They are untrained and ignorant.
And 3- They’re just nasty.
Candace Cameron Bure is clearing the air after sharing a video about her faith that some found offensive. The “Fuller House” star, 45, recently shared a TikTok video of herself leaning toward the camera while mouthing the lyrics to the Lana Del Rey song “Jealous Girl.” Near the end of the video, she shows off a copy of the Bible.
“When they don’t know the power of the Holy Spirit,” she wrote in the caption. She faced backlash after posting the clip on both TikTok and Instagram, with some people saying her video was too “seductive.”
“The Holy Spirit isn’t seductive. What is this??” one person commented on TikTok.
“Sensualizing your belief in the Holy Spirit? Kinda missing the mark here,” another person wrote.
“The song doesn’t match the Bible.. It’s seductive .. but at least she is bold in showing her Bible,” another person commented.
Bure later deleted the video from her Instagram page, while leaving it up on TikTok, and shared a lengthy video apology in her Instagram story.
Just say no to ignorant celeb-pseudo theologians.
This guy deserves a Dilly the Dilettante Award more than anyone in years. Here’s why:
The first question you should ask when talking with a “scholar” about this topic is “Do you accept the Bible as your final authority in all matters of faith and practice”? If he says “yes” he just threw out his education. If he says “no” then the conversation is over. There is no reason to continue the conversation. It’s a waste of time to talk with someone who doesn’t accept the Bible as their final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
If you think about it, a translation is either going to be superior to an original, equal to an original, or inferior to an original. These are the only options. According to our final authority in all matters of faith and practice, we find that a translation is always superior.
You don’t acquire that kind of ignorance in a few days. That sort of stupidity takes decades to perfect.
But this bit, on why translations are ALWAYS better, takes the dilettante cake:
In discussing the originals versus translations, it’s important to remember these five ways a translation is superior.
-It’s all in one volume. The originals were never in one binding.
-Book, chapter, and verse markings. The originals were not written that way.
-More durable. You couldn’t haul the originals around like you carry your Bible.
-It’s in English. English is the language of the world.
-Multiple copies. There never was a time when the originals were ever together in one book. If they had been, there would only be one.
Wow. Here’s your VERY well deserved Dilly, Mr Gipp. And may God have mercy on whatever congregation has the sad misery of having to listen to your word vomit Dreck.
This guy is a ‘Pentecostal’ ‘worship leader’. I don’t what kind of Unitarian Universalist ‘church’ calls itself ‘Pentecostal’ but that’s what kind of ‘church’ this guy must ‘serve’.
He is wrong on every point. Every point. So naturally Twitter has given him a blue check.
If he were at my Church he wouldn’t have a job.
Using ‘bible study’ as a cover for insane political plans.
Stay away from the Bible, dilettantes with political motivations.
Meanwhile, the Bible says…
‘The heart is more devious than any other thing, and is depraved; who can pierce its secrets? (Jer. 17:9)
So if you take Paula’s very bad advice, you only find yourself ruined. Don’t be like Paula. Don’t follow your heart.
Give this little sad tale about Pentebabbleist ‘prophet’ Robert Sanchez’s assault of a person a read.
Progs love to cite atheists and highlight their work (books, blogs, tweets, etc.) because doing so makes the progs look proggy. And there’s no truth or fact or orthodox belief they aren’t willing to sacrifice on the altar of ‘progressivism’. And it’s hilarious.
And out of it. Her claim is a lie throughout.
I honestly don’t get it. Do people want to be manipulated? Lied to? Used? How does someone like Mark Driscoll continue to have loyal followers when it’s as plain as day who he is?
Do people simply enjoy being in a cult? Because that’s what Driscoll is running.
The ‘God Bless the USA Bible’ is not going to happen.
A new Bible that includes singer Lee Greenwood’s licensed lyrics to “God Bless the USA” and America’s Pledge of Allegiance is off to a rough start.
The custom Bible’s Tennessee-based seller, marketing firm Elite Source Pro. led by Hugh Kirkpatrick, lost a manufacturing agreement to print the New International Version Bible text after a petition circulated in response to reporting by ReligionUnplugged, asking Zondervan and HarperCollins to drop the project. Neither HarperCollins nor its evangelical publishing groups Zondervan and Thomas Nelson will support the Bible product anymore. Zondervan released a statement to Religion Unplugged that the publisher never finalized a formal agreement with Elite Source Pro.
It was heresy from the start and its death is not to be mourned.
