Holiday Entertainment

It’s a holiday in America, Memorial Day–the day Americans remember all the men who made America win wars over all those other loser countries in the world–so I’m taking a break along with everyone else. Here are some videos I did a few years ago to provide you with some holiday entertainment and education.

Did The New Testament Invent Grace?

I am Forty-Second

Well, at least I think I’m funny.

I Am Second

Are you aware of the “I Am Second” campaign? It’s a series of video interviews giving people’s testimonies of Jesus Christ. In many respects, the interviews are good, many are heartfelt, honest and inspiring.

Others are a tad humorous to my twisted brain. Some are just cool, angsty guys talking about “what God has been teaching me, man.” The camera work and the setting is hip. It’s cool stuff, and would be fun to make fun of.

So I did. Here is my new video campaign, “I Am Forty Second.”

We Don’t Know How To Pray as We Ought, Idiot

Any time a man teaches on prayer some smart guy will say, “Thanks for all your teaching, wondering how you know all this when Paul says we don’t know how to pray?” Although the word “idiot” may not conclude this statement, it is implied.

 Notice, if you actually read the verse, it says we don’t know “what to pray for as we ought.” He doesn’t say that we don’t know how to pray, he says we don’t know WHAT to pray for as we should. I’m good with this.

I am not good with the man who makes this statement mean that we can know absolutely nothing about prayer at all, ever, idiot.

That’s not true and I know it’s not true because Christ taught people to pray, Paul, Peter, and James all give instruction regarding prayer. The Bible is filled with examples of prayer and all Scripture is written for our learning.

Romans 8 is largely about the Holy Spirit. It explains our dependence upon the Spirit’s intercession. Paul is not telling people they can’t pray because they’re all too dumb.

So, how should we pray? Here’s another little video I did to illustrate three popular ways of praying, which one I prefer, but also, what my preferred way means. Pop some pop-corn and enjoy.
