Hello, Mom and Dad? Your liberal college son is home. I graduated and cannot find a job. Maybe I should not have voted for Hope and Change. 6% unemployment was much better than 9.6%... Can I live with you guys?
Please let me in people! I am an atheist who wants to mock your faith! Let me into your lives, so I can try and make a mess of your beliefs. C'mon, give me a chance! You're supposed to be kind and caring! You're supposed to be loving and compassionate! What's a fella gotta do to demean a few Christians in this town?
If I was terrible at hermeneutics I'd say Revelation 3:20...:-P
Elder Jonathan decided that in an effort to be a little more relevant (and to get more people to answer their door), he needed to dress a little cooler than the recommended suit and tie. After all it seemed to be working for many evangelical megachurches and for the emergent movement. Besides the teachings of Joseph Smith including copying the stuff he liked from Christianity and leaving out anything uncomfortable (like hell, judgement, and Christ being God).
"Got Gospel?""Got Jesus?""This is the face that answers the prayers of a lonely person.""The gospel: Still spread by common people one-on-one after all these years."
Blah blah blah, something about Arminian tunnel vision.
What do you do when no one's looking and your only dough nut falls into the bathroom bowel? You gotta be emergent!
