    Default Small beer for this crowd, but better than no beer

    This is because evangelicals in the English-speaking world have confused Christ’s command to love others with being civil as if that were an attribute of God. (It isn’t.) As a consequence, a superficial, self-righteous, good-for-nothing pietism that prefers tone to truth and style to substance has displaced authentic Christianity in many of the roughly four hundred thousand churches in America. This doctrinal malpractice has given us a generation of men, Christian and otherwise, who are what Lewis called “men without chests.”
    Like I said, not exactly red meat for the lions, but at least it's out there.

    Looks like an interesting article. Will read this later.

    something Gabe said some years ago that always struck a strong chord in me: More Lion, less Lamb.

    And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey....But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
    --Matthew 3:4,7

    And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
    But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.

    --Matthew 11:7-8

    And then there's that whole temple thing.

    Great stuff guys, thanks for posting. I’ll bring up another Gabe quote to one of my questions years ago -

    “Jesus is your fire team leader, not your fucking boyfriend.”

    That the sculptor got his artistic license revoked for lack of historical knowledge, ignorance of swords, and an drapery fetish?

    Saul of Taurus wouldn't have carried a book like that. They didn't exist when he did his thing.

    I put much blame on organized religion as it has been in the last 20 or so years for emasculating the men of the world. They have been instrumental in telling men what "not" to do and be. They will answer for their actions one day!
