Mental Health Break—The Wittenburg Door

If you’re not already familiar with the online humor magazine The Wittenburg Door, now you are: think The Onion marries Reformed Christian theology and they have a wickedly funny child with an aptitude for making you laugh at most things religion-related in this world.  A “thank you” to saint and sinner James for introducing me to the magazine, which is now a gift that keeps on giving.

Be forewarned: if you take yourself and/or your faith too seriously, you will not like this magazine and could be offended.  You may even want to call me names, in which case your comments will no longer be tolerated at this intersection between God and life.


Here are some of the “most popular” blogs appearing at The Wittenburg Door in recent days:

Mark Driscoll Kicks His Own Ass

Noah’s Blog

Why Creflo Dollar Needs His Dollars

Why Benny Hinn Became Our Wacky Neighbor

Rob Bell on Sex, God and Sex Gods

**Actually, the interview with Bell here is really, really great—I love what Bell says about church as “the place where you say the things that have to be said…with the most honesty and vulnerability and prophetic culture.”
