"Loving?" Ken Silva, schooling someone on being "LOVING?" Cupcake, we've read your trashy little hateblog. Between pleas for money to keep your Chinese restau... I mean, church, going, and cut-and-paste excerpts from everything Spurgeon ever wrote, you haven't shown a peep of love since your first poorly-worded and substanceless post. Further, we have the ability to read the words you post to friends like Adele. We see your venom on Twitter, and the cruel comments you divebomb in and leave on assorted blogs, like turds in a punchbowl. You wouldn't know "love" if it happened to accidentally bite you on your shrivelled remaining testicle. Get saved, Ken. Soon.

So don't let's dare to examine our faith, huh? Just listen to Chris Rosebrough and accept his opinions as fact, and everything will be fine. Is it that you just want opportunities to smear Bell, Postmoderns, etc., or do you actually think about what you post? Because if it's the latter, that's both depressing and disturbing. Son, you'll hopefully eventually learned that an unexamined faith is not worth having.
Chris, that's ignorant, even for you. Re-read my post. Did I mention Marx? Did I mention forcible government redistribution? Even once? Look carefully. Your understanding of "social justice" is breathtaking, especially for someone who brags about being a doctoral student. In any case, you'll note that I quoted Scripture. If you have a difficulty with what I posted, take it up with the author if that particular passage.

Jesus said something similar in Matthew 25:41-46 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angelsFor I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' "They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?' "He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.' "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." OH NO! SOCIAL JUSTICE! I guess it was "my" Jesus and not "your" Jesus who said that, though, huh?

One wonders if you'd count your own obsession with pure doctrine as a form of idolary. Also, your closed-ended theology makes no provision for those not blessed with the Scriptures as you are.
Chris, if I am hearing you correctly, there is no possible way in your view for a person to develop a direct relationship with God. One must, by design, be in a corporate worship context (and, if I may draw on your numerous vituperous imprecations against so many such contexts, only the **right** corporate worship context) in order to experience relationship with God. If this is so, it is among the most hyperbolic and unScriptural things I've read, and a stretch even for the likes of you. Humans in search of redemption by, reconciliation to, and relationship with the liviing God must indeed be involved in some form of corporate worship and study; however, to deny the personal, to discount they mystery, to denigrate the unknown, is utterly ridiculous. To take ancient practices like Lectio Divina and contemplative prayer and dismiss them as invented practices that claim to "...plug you directly into God's power socket so that you can experience Him" is to (again, quoting you) attempt to "disprove a person's position by misrepresenting it then beating up on the misrepresented view." I used to think you better than that. I have, of course, long ago learned my lesson.
I've read the Lectio Divina stuff, though not from Mars Hill. By the way, did you steal the image on your blog from Tony Jones? That's something Ken Silva is famous for doing... but that stands to reason, doesn't it? I have to say, Chris, that you are practicing isogesis with these documents to a degree unheard of before, even for you. By all means, if you're scared of having a personal relationship with the living God, by all means don't. But, again, as you yourself said, "you don't disprove a person's position by misrepresenting it then beating up on the misrepresented view."
You know better than to expect me to listen to your podcast. As to the rest, igf I haven't read them yet, I will. And when you get a moment, try and actually address the things I say, instead of using these responses as a springboard for prooftexting and speaking to things unrelated. Oh, and repent.
You obviously misunderstand the practices of contemplative prayer and Christian meditation. I am not at all surprised by this. To quote your own words, "you don't disprove a person's position by misrepresenting it then beating up on the misrepresented view." You can apply the same logic to a given discipline. Seriously, dude. As you've abusively said to me time and again, reading comprehension, get some.
Waitwaitwaitwait... Niether Jesus nor his disciples practiced them???????? Jesus didn't spend all night in prayer? Have we read the same Gospels? You seem to think that a person desiring to more closely commune with the Almighty on a personal level is heretical. I can only repeat the question, if this is the case: Are you reading the same four Gospels in the canonical New Testament that I am? Perhaps it is time to let go of your pride and admit that God is bigger than you.
Seriously, Ken - I mean, Chris? The "red flag" is that it is a practice of traditional Catholicism? What is prayer, if not the ***practice*** of communicating with God? What is meditating upon Scripture, if not the ***practice*** of deepening one's understanding of, and thus fellowship with, one's loving Creator? As one can expect of you, your educated ignorance has caused you to dismiss, out of hand, anything that suggests that God, and relationship therewith, is anything broader than your personal experience. As you've said, often and abusively to me, repent.
I have no words. I pray for his family, and that God grants him peace at last.
