New Book Old Cartoon


Talk about pleasant surprises!...yesterday, when I got home from work, I had a small package waiting for me from Christianity Today International! It had a check made out to me and a complimentary copy of "Let My People Laugh", published by Thomas Nelson. It had within it's pages an old cartoon I did in 1988. Of all the clients I have worked for, Leadership magazine and Christianity Today have been the BEST by far! They have always been very generous and fair to their cartoonists. I get paid everytime they use one of my cartoons. Thanks guys! I needed it.

Earth Day Award

The Journal of Cotton Adams # 9


To his brother Clay, then a student at Yale college, New Haven.

Dear brother Clay, April 30, 1739.

I should tell you, "I long to see you," but that my own experience has taught me, there is no happiness, and plenary satisfaction to be enjoyed, in earthly friends, though ever so near and dear, or in any enjoyment, that is not God himself. Therefore, if the God of all grace would be pleased graciously to afford us each his presence and grace, that we may perform the work, and endure the trials he calls us to, in a most distressing tiresome wilderness where I am satisfied with but the memory of you. I also seem to remember you owe me twenty dollars.

I traverse in the most lonely melancholy desert, about ten miles from Motown, Kentucky; for the pending storm always makes me feel this way. I am now boarding with a poor Scotchman, Bagpipes McGee. His wife can talk scarce any English but, she plays the banjo like a monkey on a piano. Their home is very tidy and the lizards help keep the insect population to a minimum.

My diet consists mostly of hasty pudding, sunflower seeds and bread baked in the shape of a sundial. (If it gets cooked too long, they use it to tell time.) Sometimes I get a craving for an entire chicken and a basket of fries, a watermelon, a coconut pie and a pound of cheese.

I took time off from my circuit riding to catch up on my studies, sermon preparations and letter writing. I have prepared a sermon dealing with the pale horse in the book of Revelation who has power over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. I call it, "A One Horse Open Slay".

As I was in prayer just now, I realized you do not owe me twenty dollars. You owe me twenty five!

I remain,

Your affectionate brother,

Cotton Adams

Emergent Animation

Attention Spurgeon Fans!


In MCMXCVII, I came out with a book entitled "More Awesome Truth - The Painless Way to Wisdom". You can now buy it on line for a few dollars. On page 60 of that book, I published, for the very first time what you see above. Certified copies of Spurgeon's Marriage Certificate and the certified copy of Spurgeon's death certificate. I have them both at 150 dpi so you can click on it and print it if you choose. BTW, ANYONE visiting London can ask to see the ORIGINALS at the General Register Office! I'm not kidding.

And God Speed!

Click on painting for detailed view
This is a marvelous painting by Edmund Blair Leighton
entitled, "God Speed".
I took the liberty of photoshopping my face,
as well as my wife's, on the two main characters.

Tragic Creation

This is what happens when man gets a mind
to modify God's Word to suit his own fallen will.

This idea came to me after reading "The Potter's Freedom"
by James R. White
(A Defense of the Reformation
and a Rebuttal of Norman Geisler's Chosen But Free).

Happy Resurrection Day!

Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself.
He did not come merely to preach a Gospel;
He himself is that Gospel.
He did not come merely to give bread;

He said, "I am the bread."
He did not come merely to shed light;
He said, "I am the light."
He did not come merely to show the door;
He said, "I am the door."
He did not come merely to name a shepherd;
He said, "I am the shepherd."
He did not come merely to point the way;
He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
J. Sidlow Baxter

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God
hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.
(Rom. 10:9)

Calvinistic Cartoons on the Radio!


Recieved a letter from a friend of this blog who let me know that Wretched Radio with Todd Friel is using some of my material on the show. I caught a little of it (they loop the 2 hour program until the next live show is on)

Thanks guys! It's an honor!
http://www.wretchedradio.com/

...well, they now have me as a daily listener!

They read some of my "wives of spiritual giants" quotes:


...and did a "dramatized skit" using my interview with (ficticious) Pug Dagitt as the script:


If you guys are reading this - I would love to post an audio clip of the Pug Dagitt interview and/or the wives quotes here at Calvinistic Cartoons!

Great Gill Giveaway Going On


New blog, "For the Cause of God and Truth" is giving away a free copy of Gill’s Collected Writings on CD Rom. They will take entries for the drawing until midnight Sunday April 12. Who knows...you might just be the chosen one!

Fan Photo from Mimi Topeka

Dear Eddie,
I was visiting the Hank Locklin National Art Museum yesterday when I noticed this painting hanging on the wall. I couldn't believe my eyes! This ancient piece proves, beyond a doubt, that you stole the idea for T&G (Tulip and Grenade) from the 17th century painter, Cruton LaToya.
What do you have to say for yourself bozo!
Love,
Mimi Topeka

Dear Ms. Topeka,
You have got it backwards! THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A FORGERY! Grenades were not invented until centuries later! And word balloons, like the ones seen in the painting, are a product of twentieth century cartoonists! Besides, did you notice the Starbucks coffee cup on the floor? I know for a fact that Starbucks coffee shops were not seen until the 18th century!
If I were you, I would apologize to me for such baseless accusations, inform the head of the museum, and send me a hundred dollars. Hope to hear from you soon!
Eddie

The Hip Hop That Won't Stop


You may or may not care for hip hop.

But all you Calvinists out there will eat up
the lyrics of this talented musician
(he is a 5-Pointer)
and he lays down some Sovereign Grace doctrine
everywhere he goes.
(He even has a rappin' bio of Spurgeon!)

read some of his tunes and see what I mean:
http://lyricaltheology.blogspot.com/




I also did a "Hip Hop" gospel tract for
Good News Publishers a few years ago.
You can read every page of it here:

Create a Calvinistic Cartoon Caption #12


Congratulations pilgrim mommy for this Arminian joke!

Hint: Have a professional artist paint this on your living room wall so that you will always have a constant reminder. Sure, it may cost you a couple of thousand dollars to do this, but if he is fast, you just might have time to win this contest! Even if you don't, your wall will be an ice breaker when guests arrive for dinner.
