It's perfectly fine - this entire convo simply encourages me, knowing that our attenders are not inside the Christianese Bubble... living in the world but not of the world. Awesome.

It is an old CCM reference - the top CD is a new cover design by David Crowder Band, which totally reminded me of the bottom LP, which is "the very best of the Imperials" which is an old school Christian Band. I was thinking with the title "Church Music" that David Crowder might be doing "throwback" cover on purpose. It's a "christian-bubble" kinda thing...

Well played Robert, you are totally correct. It was the owners who were gay (at least one of them) - as masterfully portrayed by Mike Myers in the flick.

And that is why an open dialogue with you and your ilk is extremely challenging. By that definition, every interaction Jesus ever had was a "savior" met need, and the only ones qualified to elevate their encounters with the lost as "savior" equivalent are those with a God-complex. When Jesus spoke with Nicodemus, he was meeting his need as a Savior, when he rebuked the pharisees, he was also meeting their need as a savior. And somehow, all of it is also teaching. I wonder, are you meeting our needs for a savior by rebuking other believers in this way?

Jim, I would have to start with Zacchaeus. Jesus met his felt need: He needed a friend. He had lunch at his house. He wasn't 'teaching' him how to have lunch, he was meeting his friendship/community need. Later, Zacchaeus was convicted to action after getting to know Jesus. The Bible doesn't go into much detail about the words Jesus used to 'teach' Zacchaeus about that - I wonder if that's because the words weren't as important as the action.

I never meant to suggest that there wasn't a time that Bill rules the DVR. I mean, the DVR is so closely connected to the remote control, which we all know is "guy" territory!
