Scott would have us to believe that his biblical studies blog is the best of progressivism has to offer from the great nation of Canada.
Fortunately, I have been doing some Encyclopedia Black detective-style research and several of Scott’s congregation members are upset with the tone of his sermons in recent months.
In the upcoming weeks, I will be going in depth, never revealing my sources, but giving a fair and balanced look at Scott’s homilies.
Among these spectacular sermons:
“Jesus Wears Prada, The Devil Wears Gucci”
“Fifteen Reasons Why I Would Not Allow the Kids from iCarly to Walk Through These Church Doors”
[p.s., from the grapevine, according to the children’s pastor, a group of kids ran out of the church crying after hearing reason #8. Shame on you, Scott!]
“All Dogs Do Go To Heaven and God Told Me that All LoLsCats go to Hell”
“Move Over Real Men of Genius, Here comes Real Men of Genesis: taking Genesis seriously and reading it literally the way Jesus did, and the way God intended when He wrote it as a science manual and a self-help directions guidebook for every aspect of our lives”

A close friend of mine who once considered himself emergent/emerging but is now a member of a mainline Protestant denomination once told me, “Emerging churches are doing what the mainline church has always done.”
How true. Al Mohler has recently picked up this notion. I appreciate Mohler’s post because he mentions Gary Dorrien’s trilogy on Liberal Protestant Theology, starting here, since I did do a semester long independent study on these texts.
So how about we make a deal, okay?
How about we just admit that sometimes history seems circular, and that evangelicals are playing the role of the early 20th century fundamentalists, ala Mark Noll’s work, and the emerging/emergent church are playing the part of the liberals of that time, okay? Deal? Deal!
Mohler says, “Liberalism just does not work.” And I would add: “Neither does conservativism, for only the Gospel works.”
Now I wonder where I can find a W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington.
As you all may or may not know, our very own Joel Watts claims that he has been going to the great state of Ohio to receive a theological education.
Yes, Joel is learning about the Bible, but folks, but don’t let him fool ya with all that jibberish about making the trek to Ohio. I have it on good word that Joel makes the commute to California. In fact, here is video evidence.
