  3. Nice reminder, let us celebrate every day for He has designed it for some purpose.

  5. Thanks. Michael! I found those fonts buried in the sand on the Arabian Gulf this morning, next to a can of alphabet soup.

  6. Hold on a minute, Eddie. If we start celebrating what with all of the dancing, hand-waving, clapping, and singing... people might call us charismatic or Pentacostal.

    Aren't we supposed to be miserable? Doesn't that prove our spiritual maturity?

    (sarcasm intended) ;-)

  7. Remember, the greatest Calvinist in history (Paulos the Apostolos) thanked God that he spoke in tongues more than the rest of 'em.

    Just sayin'

    The above message is brought to you by Reformed Charismatics everywhere, from Gregg Harris to Wayne Grudem.

  8. I love the Charismatic comments. Pun intended. :) We can't let the heresies that abound today steal the Holy Spirit from us.....
    I love these sentements.

  9. [to be read in a genuine Todd Friel tone]

    ……Hello folks, this is the Top 40 Comment Tater Radio show, broadcasting live from the Pacific Northwest. It seems that the race has been hijacked by some mysterious figures who have never even visited our beloved blog, let alone commented- Folks, every single one of our genuine contestants have been swept off the track completely, and are nowhere in sight! The frightening thing is, folks, that the names that now appear on our scoreboard are not latin names, as yours truly suspected at first. Folks…..*sigh* this is no prank pulled by our noble D.“E.”Eddings. the race is being led by someone called Aneesh, a native American from Indiana, who from what I can tell is certainly not a Calvinist. Nevertheless, he has a whopping 112 points to his name.
    Second place is held by TUTSVNN.TK who holds 12 to their name. Folks, it looks like the whole race is held by blogging widget staff or individuals who are somehow affiliated with computer programming.
    Sorry for the confusion, folks. As our benevolent sponsor said, (at least I think it was he who said it), it demonstrates the depravity of man. And personally, I don’t think the race could be more fallen than its current state!
    God willing we will return to our regular programming soon………..stay tuned and thank you for listening to Top 40 Comment Tater Radio!

  11. "Read in a Todd Friel tone"

    HAHAHA! I just watched him interview Paul Washer at the Deeper conference two years ago. Nice.

  12. @Eddie Eddings: So what did you do with the alphabet soup?

    ReplyDelete
  13. A friend and I had lunch together. We both had a big bowl of alphabet soup in front of us. We were talking and suddenly your name came up.

  14. @Mr. Wirght:
    Yes, I've seen that interview. I like Mr. Friel a lot.....and it's a given that Mr. Washer is one of my favorite speakers. :) Him and Tim Conway are my favorites right now.

  15. @CG - I've always liked DW. He was my hero back when I was Pentecostal and decidedly not Reformed, but also not into excessive craziness (a little was OK).

    I'll be teaching a Sunday School class in two weeks dealing with I Cor. 14 and trying to make a case that there are ways for Reformed charismatics and doctrinally conservative cessationists to coexist, worship together, and agree on most of the practices if not the terminology.

    I'll also be using a can of alphabet soup to illustrate the gift of tongues and interpretation. Should be very exciting.

  16. Oh boy, would I like to be there for that! :D I have mentioned before that my hobby is studying the Charismatic movement (I know, strange hobby), and I agree with you...David Wilkerson is pretty on top of many issues. From what I have read from him, he's pretty Biblical. But I certainly don't know about the rest of his theology.....but I agree with him in that video! :D

    Of course Reformed Charismatics and cessationists can coexist! My hero is Reformed Charismatic after all. :) (he's not Mr. W., though). He's why I like Charismatic theology. Extremely Biblical guy, even if I disagree with the continuationist/cessationist issue.

  17. @CG: Paul Washer is actually me and a good friend of mine's favorite preachers. He and Leonard Ravenhill, (both fiery!) I like John MacArthur a lot. Been listening to some sermons of his on Romans 8:28 (he has five or six of them!) I don't know too much about Tim Conway, all of his videos on Illbehonest are pretty good so far though. Do you have a sermon recommendation?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Mr. Wright, I am going through Tim Conway's Sermon Audio page

    http://www.sermonaudio.com/search.asp?SpeakerOnly=true&currSection=sermonsspeaker&Keyword=Tim^Conway

    right now. I think my favorite so far has been this one:

    http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=726091819130

    But they are all so good, it's hard to choose a favorite.....you know what I mean.

  19. Okay thanks. I've been meaning to check him out for awhile I just haven't gotten to it yet. :-)

  20. You say you dug up that font on the shore of the Arabian Gulf? Would that be the font of every blessing?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mr. Aston.........I suppose you heard that Mr. Wilkerson died yesterday?!?!? :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. CG, yes I heard about Wilkerson's death. Quite a shock. In my younger days I listened to hours and hours of his preaching with much benefit. He helped to keep me clear of the errors of hyper-faith and the prosperity Gospel, and also got me interested in reading the Puritans. He spoke at the baccalaureate service when I graduated from college - on a familiar text: Romans 8:29!
