Bwahahahahaha! That is hilarious.
Oh, yes, the first question of a pending courtship.."So, you want to marry my daughter? What do you think about Lapsarianism?"
What I want to know is where was her father during the courtship? My husband already has a list of theological questions to ask any suitor of our daughter.
Supralapsarianism: Pulling out a chair from under someone, blaming it on them, and expecting praise and thanks for helping them back up.:-D.
Thanks to @Michael Wright for the idea. He used a very similar example (minus the blaming it on them part) while we were talking about the heresy that teaches God created evil/caused the Fall/etc.
@Joel: Blaming it on them. Nice addition, I'll have to remember that.
"Well, I still love you and I suppose I can live with that. At least you don't believe in infant baptism. Right, Honey? ....Right?.....You are being very quiet."
@Stranger: NOOO!!! NOT THAT!!!P.S. I'm not joking.
I'm just glad that neither my wife or I know what infra- or supra-lapsarianism are!
@confessionalouthouseYou make a very good point, I hope everybody got it. I do know what infra- and supra- lapsarianism is, but more importantly, I know what it is not. It is not something for which we who love the Doctrines of Grace ought to assume an uncharitable attitude when coming to different conclusions than some of our Calvinist brothers regarding the order of the decrees, or more properly, the logical order within the eternal decree. It is not an unimportant topic for theologians, but my personal opinion is that here on this "Pun-Loving blog" we should focus mostly on having some fun with it, maybe even making our own position (if we have one) the brunt of a good natured joke.Okay, that's enough venerableness for now. Need to go to bed ; ) <-see, one eye is already closed.Craig
At least he's not Amyraldian.
Hey! ...why I oughtta...
I see what Stranger is saying, this does make a really good joke.
This reminds me of my courtship. Infra - Supra debate right out of the box.BTW, I dated Amy Raldian for a while. I got tired of all her hypothetical questions.
