[If I keep breaking rules this blog ain't ever gonna get off the ground.
One of the rules is (probably) don't change the subject so often.
People who like one topic will not likely be attracted to another, especially if you go from jokes to multi-media to politics to dismal comments about obscure observations on Korean history...
I guess that's one of the benefits, too. Mostly I'm writing for myself, so if I like it I know at least one person is paying attention. ]
Real Live Preacher...
People send me email regularly, asking how a preacher can use such language.
USE LANGUAGE? USE IT? USE WORDS?
I don't know what to do with a question like that.
Sometimes I try to explain.
Sometimes I say, “I don’t know.”
Sometimes I say, “Why don’t you leave me the hell alone.”
This mix of fideism and heroic existentialism probably appeals to the same immature crowd that appreciates a preacher who cusses. (“Dude, he doesn't know if God exists and he says F___ a lot. He’s my kind of Christian.”) Personally, I find such dumbing-down morally repugnant. When did Jesus say that we should leave our brains at the church door? Did I misunderstand that part about loving God with the whole mind? RLP's view of faith certainly seems peculiar.
