How Revolutiuon Church views the disciples.

Remember the church that brought you the God Sex abomination? Their four-week sermon series this past summer had such sermon titles as:

July 08 – Seven Minutes in Heaven [**Sex Party**]

July 15 – Stripped Bare

July 22 – Leather, Whips, and Whipped Cream.

July 29 – What Happens in Vegas Doesn’t Stay in Vegas

Well, they’re back once again to prove that the very idea of sacredness, reverence and holiness is still non-existent in their social club. This Sunday pastor David Trotter will be teaching about the disciples.

But for those in his “church” that would be bored to tears (I mean really, teaching from the Bible is so archaic) fear not, because pastor Trotter has decided to spice it up a bit. Judging by the picture on his blog advertising the upcoming teaching, it is sure to be a hoot:

I mean who wouldn’t want to learn about the disciples when you superimpose the heads of Bart Simpson, Drew Carrey, Mr. T, Jim Carrey and Dr. Phil on their cartoon bodies?

I (still) urge you pastor Trotter, please consider what you are doing. Quit trying to gain the approval of men. I truly fear for you. Please consider that the very God and His things that you show so little respect for is the very God who holds your life in His hands. The very One who has power to destroy both body and soul in hell. Please repent of this and return to the teaching of the Bible without all this adolescent silliness. God will not be mocked. Your very soul hangs in the balance. It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God that you treat so flippantly and irreverently.

 

Kathy Griffin with a few words on Jesus after accepting her award.

Here’s the video of Kathy Griffin accepting her award. I honestly don’t see why the Christian community is so up in arms over this whole thing. Ms. Griffin is of the world and so she is behaving accordingly. The Christian community should be more up in arms by those who claim Jesus is their Lord but act as anything but. The Christian community should be more outraged by the state of the lukewarm Church. The Christian community should be more concerned with the false doctrines being taught by so many of today’s popular pastors. There will be more people finding themselves in Hell because of the lukewarm church, the false doctrines of popular pastors, and the poor example of Professing Christians than by anything Ms. Griffin can ever say or do.
