Too Wise to Make a Mistake, Too Loving to be Unkind? John Hagee, Samuel Medley and God

Visiting Twitter earlier today, I was stopped in my tracks by a quotation attributed to Pastor John Hagee:

God is too wise to make a mistake and too loving to be unkind. – John Hagee

— Ervin Tagoe (@SirErv) June 10, 2014

I have found God!

Pastor John Hagee: Something Big is Coming with the Four Blood Moons. What is it?

Like the Rev. Irwin Baxter, Pastor John Hagee just can’t stay away from the Christian End Times. In 1999, Hagee was quoted in the Washington Times (“End-times believers hedge apocalypse bets; Dramatic forecasts now hard to find,” Larry Witham, 12/9/99) as saying that “we are obviously in the last days.” In his high-selling 1999 book […]

How is an Eternity of Tarnation for Non-Eternal Sin OK?

The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up […]

Not the Voice of God You’re Hearing? Sound Check!

A friend who participates in a Facebook group called the “Christian Left” shared this image with me the other day. I wonder if my friend has read the Bible lately. Consider the acts of God and the commands by the voice of God in these books of the Bible:

Genesis Exodus Leviticus Numbers Deuteronomy […]

Susanne Atanus, the Republican Party winner in Illinois’ 9th District congressional race, is the latest in a long line of preachers and politicians to proclaim that God controls the weather and uses dire weather to punish political jurisdictions that are kind to gay people:

“I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first,” […]

Miracle?

Says a parishoner of the event: ““I thank God. It was wonderful.”

Says the church’s leader of the event: “We thank God for that. The building has come […]

Today, I Get Religion!

Finally, a faith tradition I can understand. Today, I will worship at a makeshift altar to the god Ek Chuah…

… the god of chocolate, who goes well with some cream and a bit of spice, a toasty blanket, and maybe an episode of Doctor Who.

Testify!
