Sex & Shame (use discretion when reading this post)

The above film is rated NC-17. The trailer is probably PG-13. Please use discretion when viewing. In an interview with Steve McQueen, Shame‘s director, Newsweek called Shame a “brilliant psychosexual drama.” While I only THINK I know what that means, the interview with the director was interesting… When Steve McQueen first heard of sex addiction […]

Does Your Sex Life Suck?

Another church is helping couples imagine what a spicy godly sex life can look like… And they’re using images of hot bodied non-Christians to get you in the mood. One of the sermons was preached by a former porn producer! […]

Baptist church responds to Catholic church's 'Confession' app? (with a sign…)

They just referred to God as an app…. Thanks to Melinda for sending this in!

Confession: there's an App for that (and I bought it)

Image found at The American Jesus. You’ve probably heard: The Holy Catholic Church has blessed an iPhone App called “Confession”. If not, here’s the news link from the BBC. Some of its features include: -Custom examination of Conscience based upon […]

Can You Pass God's Test? (Take it now)

This is real. It was found at a church in Georgia. My favorite part is the “If HELL is your choice please discard” line (subtext being You, not the card, are about to self-destruct.)

All Things New (an amazing UPDATE regarding today's post)

So today I wrote this post… And I have a really cool update regarding that post’s final story, you know the one involving World Vision. Today, I received a response from the reader who wrote me the email last week […]

Why do Christians give so much power to the loud negative Christian few?

For three years, a forty-something man named Brian mentored me. Brian, an elder at the church I attended, and I met once a month to talk about life, career, relationship, and God. At the time I worked at Jammin Java, […]

WHOA!! Our Favorite Crazy Preacher is Back With A New Video!

A Bliss Bash! I so want to (WHOA!) go to his (Pfft. Pfft. Pfft.) conference and see this (Giggity Giggity) insanity for myself. Toward the end of this commercial, he actually Cock-A-Doodle-Doos. But seriously, is this guy real? What is […]

Would this put you in the mood to worship?

Hahahaha…. I’m sure he’s a nice guy. He looks nice. And he smiles a lot. But some nice guys who smile a lot shouldn’t sing… …Or wear pink suits. …Or do sudden break dancing moves (maybe he has Dance Turrets?). […]

Proof Jesus Had Short Hair!

How one church is helping Chick-Fil-A fight the gays

Unlike most of my friends, I rarely get a Chick-fil-A craving. And normally when I do get one it happens on a Sunday when I’m walking through a mall food court and I see the darkly lit (closed!) Chick-fil-A booth. […]

Deputies break up church brawl!

Church fights are interesting. I’ve seen a couple small ones happen inside the walls of a church. But nothing too bad. The worst ones usually occur when one church is playing a game of basketball against another church. I’ve seen […]

Youth Group Lays Hands on Obama (sort of)

Christians Pray for Obama to be Converted Uploaded by OnKneesforJesus. – Up-to-the minute news videos. Oh dear. This is so bad. And even if your youth group did do this… WHY VIDEO TAPE IT?!

The History of the Church?

I can’t wait for people to make obvious remarks regarding the obvious missing pieces to this obviously incomplete history of the church… Found at American Jesus…

Church Sign(s) of the Day!

And I guess they ran out of “Ts”… But no worries! They had a couple extra “Ls”–turn those babies upside down and put them next to each and you got a mighty fine “T”… Pictures taken and sent to me […]

Making promises to God

I was home for a few days over the Christmas holiday. While searching through dusty boxes of old memories amid report cards, old worn out Bibles, and school pictures I found this index card. This card represents just one of […]

A GUEST POST: Why I believe in ‘The Church’ again (a post about YOU)

This post is written by my friend Aaron Reddin. Let me say this: 2009 thoroughly sucked.  And when I say it sucked… I mean… Well, it just sucked, OK? There were some really amazing things that took place, but their […]

Church sign of the day!

According to Juliane, a reader of this blog, this beautiful sign is on display in Alabama along I-65. And look! The Devil’s tool for “getting you” is sporting quite the curve.

My Ode to 2010’s Christian Culture (the good bad & Driscoll)

There’s so much to say about 2010; the whos, the whats, the shenanigans So let’s look back one more time and remember the year in “Dr. Seuss” rhyme We all felt the earthquake in Porta au Prince, and then dear […]

The Tale of Two Churches Fighting!

Found at Christian Nightmare

SURVEY: Jesus is just one of the reasons for the season…

Though I must say, the survey question (or fill-in-the-blank) is sort of odd… I mean… if somebody asked me to finish this sentence: Christmas is a time to… I’m not sure I’d say “Jesus,” mainly because “Christmas is a time […]

Brainstorming Your Christian Worship Band!

I’ve never heard 513FREE’s music. But I did find the band’s brainstorming notes from one of their official band meetings. From what I can tell… this one happened on 12-9-2010. The funniest meeting “minute” is the thread about Chris Tomlin. […]

Does Your Church Need Balls?

I’d never heard of Doug Giles before. Which I think is a good thing. The ClashRadio.com creator and host probably wouldn’t like me much. He’d probably shoot me. But anyway, I found one of his columns over at Christian Nightmares […]

Woman gets funky for Jesus… Word.

You have to watch to the 2:34 mark… Uh… I don’t know what to say. Found at Christian Nightmares..

I believe in the separation of…

… Lurch and state (of Alaska). Palin joins Graham in Haiti. Found at Christian Nightmares.

Celebrate Christmas in 3D! (but there’s a catch…)

…you have to celebrate it with Pastor Ed Young Jr. As you probably know, Ed Young is always looking for ways to creatively talk to Good Morning America tell the story of God. And this Christmas is no exception. In […]

A BLOG POST: The Gospel of Time

If you ask any of us what we need most this holiday season, I can almost guarantee that most of us would say, “time.” We need time to shop, time to clean, time to cook, time to think, time to […]

Is this a church service or a scene from ‘The Walking Dead’?

I would definitely not let any of these Christians bite me… that’s for sure… Found at Christian Nightmares.

Great interview! Sent to me about my friend Jennifer.

The Catholic Condom

Happy Christmas: The Tribulation Has BEGUN! (oh, and the number 11 is gay)

William Tapley is crazy. In the first few moments of this video, you will learn… World War III started on November 23, 2010 The number “23” is EVIL. William has been looking for evil numbers. The number 11 is homosexual. […]

Pastor OR jerk?

My favorite part… “I got to thinking about this and it’s the only time in the King James Bible that you will ever find the word addict, addicted, or addiction…” Of course, he says the word addict like “a dick…” […]

Church Sign of the Century!!!?

Best. Church sign. Ever.

Church sign of the day!

Can anybody prove this sign is real?

If the Bee Gees sang about tithing, it would sound like THIS.

Found at The American Jesus!

A Lord-praising Pig Puppet sings about demons (This is amazing!)

Casual conversation about demons is bad enough, but when the conversation comes with a melody and is sung by puppets, it’s truly inspirational don’t you think? Found at Everything is Terrible!

A Giant Rosary!

WASHINGTON POST: Jesus’s Message to Homosexuals

Randy Roberts Potts–you know, the grandson of Oral Roberts who made the “It Gets Better” video–wrote a wonderful thoughtful piece for the Washington Post and so I thought I would share it… There is a story in the Gospel of […]

A GUEST POST: Unfree in Christ…

“I think [Christians] are called to candor, to being honest about our own confusion.” This line, delivered off the cuff by author David Dark (The Sacredness of Questioning Everything) in a poorly lit interview with some no-name Toronto journalist, sent […]

UPDATE: @EdYoung preaches ‘It’s all about the money’!

Ed Young’s Tithing “Long Bomb” from FBCJax Watchdog on Vimeo. To be clear, I’m not against tithing. Whether to a church or ministry, offering tithe and offerings to something you believe in is a good thing. But Pastor Ed’s tactics […]

Would you give Pastor @EdYoung your banking information?
