I'm not into it.

It's not that I don't believe in it. I'm just not into talking about it heaps. I don't really have anything to say. Not sure what it will be like. Can't imagine it or get my head round the eternalness of it.

I listened to a sermon tonight. It was on abortion. The point seemed to be that we should discourage people from having abortions because we care about their souls and they'll go to hell if they have an abortion (unless they repent afterwards). I'd never thought of arguing it that way. If they weren't xns weren't they going to hell anyway? Might as well abort...

Other sermons I've heard from this guy have been great. An American thing?


  1. By coincidence, the Pyromaniacs posted this today:


  2. Maybe it works better in the USA?

  3. I think I'd go for the more immediate pay off that we should discourage abortions because the kids tend to appreciate it.

    More seriously...does our motivation always have to be self-serving? Isn't it better to motivate people to be others-serving?

    Yankee individualism strikes again, I suspect.

  4. It seems like he has regressed back to the Medieval Churches' approach to reading the Bible. But, then, those American celebrity guys sound like pre Vatican II Catholics to me.

  5. I wouldn't mind so much if the Biblical foundations for this kind of teaching weren't so thin.

    You can tell this is so because the people who shout the loudest about this never expound the scriptures to prove their case. They just shout about.
