OK, More Linkage

Pastor Lance, a black Reformed minister in West Philadelphia (born and raised!), has written an appropriately scathing critique of what he calls The Baal Network (TBN). Seriously, welding helmets and HazMat suits need to be in place before you read the full article. Just a taste:

And why did the Lord of glory endure such grievous pain and death? So that you could sow your seed offering, claim your blessing and have yet one more thing to put in your Public Storage locker.

Folks, enough is enough.
These people aren’t in error, misguided or confused. They’re deliberately prostituting scripture, the cross and Jesus Christ to engorge their own debauched greed.

Pour it on, brother, pour it on.

Holy scathing, Batman! However, not inappropriate. Whew, way to hammer The Baal Network, Pastor Lance!

I was reading through the comments on Wade Burleson's reposting of his absolutely amazing bit on tea-totaling and as I read through your blog, I realized just who you were. You have a great blog going (both in content and expression). I look forward to reading and will see you around the 930!

"Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air"

So many good times!

Haha, knew I could count on Angus to finish up a tv theme song.

It's a bit like reading Anne Coulter on televangelists, no?
