Semi-interesting article by a guy who was a missionary and now thinks that evangelicals shouldn't evangelize. Big deal but then I find this quote:

Funny thing is, Jesus never said, “Go into the world and convert people to Christianity.” What he said was, “Go and make disciples of all nations.”

Even funnier than that, pal, is that no one really knows what Jesus said or didn't say. No one can even prove he existed. The new testament was written by unknown authors 300-400 years after the mythical figure we call 'Jesus' was allegedly around. This is what no one wants to talk about. Everyone wants to argue what the word of 'the Lord' really means or what he really said when and where but there is a HUGE uncertainty hooked on to all of that due to authorship and the effects of time on the written and passed on word.

But I just know people think the New Testament is a real time record of events in the life of Ivan DeJesus Jesus but it is nothing of the kind and biblical scholars are in agreement about this. Pretty easy to put words into the Lords mouth 400 years after he may have existed. And, if he is the son of the creator of the universe why not straighten out any misconceptions.

Ah, that wouldn't be mysterious!

Jesus on a Walmart Receipt

Yes fans another breathless story from CNN and other sources about a South Carolina (hmm...that's in the 'south', right?) who spotted our savior and son of the creator of the universe on the back of a Walmart receipt.

Yep, that's how the omnipotent communicate with us.

You can clearly see that that is Jesus, right? Wait, or is that Charles Manson? Or my bowling buddy, Mel?

What the hell is wrong with people? The couple in question said the image was 'breathtaking'. Yeah, sure is. . .IF YOUR A STUPID CORN PONE LIVING IN SOUTH FUCKING CAROLINA! You can see puppies in clouds too. You can see the image of Isaac Newton in your coffee grounds. We are wired to look for faces so we find faces where there are in fact none.

I've been over this before.

1. Nobody knows what Jesus really looked like so if you saw the image of a round bald guy that MIGHT be the image of Christ. How would you know?

2. Why in the hell do the news idiots cover this shit? Why? And they do it every time.

Somtimes I wish the south had won the civil war.

God at work. . . sometimes

From the Chicago Tribune;

Two Chicago police officers were shot and wounded late Monday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood, authorities said.

The 29-year-old patrolmen from the West Side Harrison police district were expected to recover from their injuries, according to police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, who spoke with reporters this morning outside the emergency room at Stroger Hospital.

"God was with us tonight," McCarthy said.

Where is he on the nights that officers are shot and killed? Imponderables. Who doesn't love 'em?
