Lyrical Miracles Chosen One #2

Congratulations Pilgrim Mommy!
Our next challenge is to the tune of "The Beverly Hillbillies Theme Song"
(hint: find the lyrics on the internet, copy, paste, and change)
Read the rules first and write the song!
The chosen one will be announced on February 6th


  1. Well, I'll give it a shot...

    Come 'n listen to my story 'bout the Synod of Dort,
    Twas a council of Dutch Reformers with a strong retort
    The teachings of the Remonstrance were impossible to swallow
    And that James Arminius they refused to follow.
    His teaching that is, truncated truth, spiritual gobbledegook.

    Well the first thing you know the Reformers they all said,
    "This fella James Arminius is plum out-of-his head"
    So they set forth sound doctrine for all the world to see,
    And the 5 points of Calvinism flowed out naturally
    TULIP, that is, the doctrines of grace, the sovereignty of God.

    Well, then came the time to close the final meetin,
    But Episcopius just kept on speakin and a speakin
    And although his words were very eloquent
    they were not scriptural so out the door he went
    His followers to, Arminians, that is, Free-willers.

    Ya'll defend the truth now, hear?

  2. Welllllll Doggies! That's a good 'un!

  3. Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a man named John
    Owen was his name and a learned Oxford don
    His books'll never help you to improve your self esteem
    But they'll make it really clear about your mortifying need
    Of sin, that is. Total depravity.

    Well, I'll be mortified, hear?

    (Since I've only read one book by Owen, I could only come up with one verse. This one was harder. I guess I couldn't get in touch with my inner Elly Mae.)
