So, I am hearing things about that video I uploaded not working, but only from two people who have trouble with technology in general, so I have no idea how valid of a concern it is. Did it work? Did anyone watch it? Is it worth it to post my final assignment (a sermonette on Titus 2:11-14) for feedback, as well?
Oh for crying out loud vimeo why do you have to spend an hour converting a video that I’d already converted so that you would accept it?
You may recall that I was doing an assignment for class about open vs. closed communion, and that I would have to give a presentation on Easter Monday, and that I would share it with you guys when it was done.
Vimeo has the video on queue to convert right now. I’ll share it here when it’s available. In the meantime, you can skim over the handout I made with it and the additional resources I included in the handout and mention briefly in the presentation but did not include as major sources.
One time, I didn’t like a guy my friend was dating, so I purposefully kept playing Better Man for her while she was in the car with me.
This reminded me of a different story involving that same song.
I had a friend who was dating one guy, but claimed to be interested in another guy (named Hood), while harboring a long-standing and obvious interest in a different guy (whose last name was Wareham). So we took Betterman and made a new version based around the line, “She lies and says she’s in love with Hood, can’t find a Ware-ham.” So my one other friend, who was quite high at the time, recorded himself badly singing that line, saved it into the music folder of his computer under the name “Hood”, and forgot about it.
Now, this was during the days of Napster and AudioGalaxy and such, and 50 Cent had apparently just released a song called Hood. So the way we all learned that the file existed was that people started downloading it and then complaining that it was nothing at all like what they were looking for. Sometimes I just try to imagine the look on their faces and crack up.
"Be holy as I am holy." Not: "Be holy in a culturally acceptable way." Not: "Be holy as you define ‘holy.’" Not: "Be as holy as you can be."
"Be holy as I am holy."
We do not have the prerogative to play fast and loose with what holiness is and what holiness does. God’s own immutable nature gives us the only definition of holiness that matters. Anything else is counterfeit.
"Be holy as I am holy."
Radio: And Christ was crucified, and Satan thought he'd won.
Me: You know, we really don't get any indication in scripture that Satan thought he'd won when Christ died.
Carol: I've been wondering about that...

Avengers TFLN blogs? :DI do follow one of those, actually! But it hasn’t posted anything new since February. Which I understand, sometimes it gets hard to keep up with. But it’s textfromtheavengers. But it’s great because some of them only update once a day and a few haven’t updated in a while, so it’s just like I’m scrolling through all these great wonderful Christian blogs and a few that share other interests with myself and then suddenly, BAM, there’s a hilarious tfln post halfway through page 4. Why not, the others I follow are textsfromthetardis, textsfromlasttopgear, textsfromthearchercrew, textsfromtos, disneyladiesfromlastnight, disneygentsfromlastnight, dispatchesfromcongress, textsfromtng, swanqueentfln, justiceleaguetextsfromlastnight, and howlersfromlastnight. Unless I’m forgetting some. The ones Carol and I run are textsfromthedas and textsfromthenormandy.
