None of the stuff mentioned in this interview below is new criticism. The satire is funny, serious, false, and true all at the same time. I guess that’s why they call it satire.

Anyway, got this clip from Ed Noble, the teaching pastor at Journey… guess somebody at Journey sent it to him and well, it’s worth the listen. If you are following Jesus, one of the best things I think you can do is crawl out of the hole that is the Christian community and take a look around at what the rest of the world is saying- especially those who passionately disagree. One of the best books I read in college was by Origen– a 3rd century defender of the faith who wrote a book against a strong critic of Christianity, “Celsus”. The book was called “Against Celsus” and it not only quotes Celsus, but it also offers some soid arguments for why one might intelligently choose to disagree.

I pray that our students learn less from me about what to think and more from me about how to think… and that’s way harder to do than it sounds.
