Guy with a cane was walking into McDonalds as I was going out. I held the door for him, he said "thanks buddy," and I replied "yep." Not "you're welcome," not "yes sir," not even "no problem." Just "yep." Have I skipped over lazy rude dumb millennial and gone straight to Gen Z? Am I ruining everything? Is civilization about to collapse? :(

If he didn't scowl and hit you over the head with the cane, then you both are wrong.

I guess having sex with gravestones isn't the worst thing they could do.

I made a quick research about that ministry of Bethel church, their students perform ''drunkness anointing'' and ''holy laughter'', but what really striked me as the most bizarre, is ''grave sucking'', where they lay by and hug graves of famous protestant preachers to absorb their ''anointing''.





Why Finney, too? I don't think there was any Charismatic stuff at his meetings, he predates the modern versions of it by decades (then again, I once heard an AoG minister claim that John Wesley faced down a man who pulled a gun on him by speaking in tongues...)

Wasn't Finney the inventor of the altar call and sinners prayer?

Makes sense. What did he mean by it?

The impression I got was it was written out of half annoyance. He got tired of the "Orthodox? Isn't that, like, Jewish?", "So it's Catholic, right?" questions. He ran it in a newspaper ad for the mission he was affiliated with at the time (the late 1980s or early 90s), and it just took off from there.

I'm remembering this from a five minute aside at a church winter retreat about eight years ago, so take it for what it's worth.

Ah, ok. Yeah, it makes sense in that context.

Considering guns were basically single shot or bust at that time and most weren't capable of hitting a target on purpose, yelling gibberish to startle someone might not have been the worst strategy.

Or maybe he meant John Wesley Hardin. ;)

lol, maybe.

I mean, there are weirder things. We could go around with the Romanides pitch- "Religion is a neurobiological sickness short-circuiting spinal fluid between the heart and brain! Orthodoxy is its cure!"

"Orthodoxy: Balancing the humors since 33 AD"
