Your Daily Moment Of Surreality

Over at Evangelical Outpost, Joe Carter has decided to risk a little bit of public ecclesiology, which is always a fascinating topic for a guy like me. The post is long, and somewhat tedious if you really don't want to think about who is and isn't a Christian.

But scroll down into the comments. The fun begins here:
Terry wrote;

"If you believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, that he died on the cross for your sins, and was resurected after three days you are a Christian."

This is demonstrably wrong. Even the Demons believe this and they shudder.

At this point, I'd like to make an ostensibly unrelated announcement.

It is now my policy that I do not discuss the distinction between atheists and "hard" agnostics until the bong has been properly loaded and the bowl has been fired at least once. Also, this policy is not subject to debate until all the neo-Calvinist, evangelical Christians in the room have been either smoked out or they're too high to speak.

Are we clear about that? Good. You may now return to your regularly scheduled sectarian squabble.
