TSK strikes again

tall skinny kiwi has this pic on his blog and I thought it was killer. It may offend you, but then if this sutff offends you, you probably shouldn't be here in the reorientation anyways.

I don't think I'm offended, just confused. Whatever happened to "let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouth?" Is this an example of the world shaping a brothers vocab or is just someone having a tantrum and cursing? Whatever. I get his point, I guess, but I reject the worldly notion that a profanity, no matter how mild, makes people sit up and take notice. Wow, did you see how I actually missed his whole point as far as thinking about it cuz I was distracted by the language? James I think you just like it cuz you can ID a ranter like yourself so easily.

*rotfl* I don't know. I thought it was pretty cool. And whoever says you're a ranter.... ;)

This little flyer comes from a post-post-modern church conference that is happening in Orlando...which sounds like just another marketing gimmick to me...postmodernism is not understood by the Christian marketing machine...anything cheap is exactly that...

It also follows the tradition of Campolo, swearing at Urbana and chastizing the crowd for caring more about his language than the lost and dying world around them...or is that an urban legend?

Anyways-I've been offended in the last 24 hours, and it had nothing to do with swearing...it had more to do with the kind of things that Jesus got offended at - not to call myself righteous, I just think we need to confront the pahrisees more than any other sinner.

Yeah, I agree that we need to confront each other in love. We are too often indifferent to each others indifference. I also agree with anonymous that Paul and James might not be keen on cursing to make a point, especially if no one gets it, but FAR be it from me to argue with anything Tony Campolo does. Why listen to scripture when we have someone doing something so much more intriguing??? Perhaps we envy the world because they get to curse and we don't. No fair! There's a bunch of language Nazis out there...
