I am flattered! The Lussenheide featured "frontline" on the Ambassador Watch! Im more excited than the time my letter to the editor got published in the "Good News" in 1988 with the initials "B.L" California. At 6'1 and 215 lb, an owner and serious user of "The Bowflex", a mean looking S.O.B. with a flat top and square jaw, who was raised and breast fed by wolves, THE LUSSENHEIDE will have to be escorted out "minimally" by Byker Bob and two of his big "buds"!On another note: Just down the road from me is the "Glen Eden Nudist Resort". On their sign they actually advertise coming events, including (believe it or not) nude weekly church. I cant help but imagine what that whole scene has got to be like. Forget about being escorted out because of a shirt, imagine being escorted out for NOT WEARING ONE AT ALL!~ LOL! Some questions that I ponder at reflective moments in my mind about "Glen Eden"... Do you wear dress shoes and a tie, for men, women with pumps, jewelry, scarf, and nothing else for church?? Does the preacher wear just the little Catholic Priest collar and nothing else? Do they practice footwashing?One more off the wall thought,...surveys do seem to indicate that married Christians, on the whole, have more frequent and satisfying sex than their atheistic counterparts. Forget the Viagra, join the Christian church of your choice today!Turn on, Tune In and Drop Out! Bill Lussenheide, Menifee, CA USA
Hey, Luss. I use a Soloflex myself. And, like Dennis, I studied Tae Kwon Do for several years. No flat top or wolves on the horizon, though.As for the topic of the post, I had come up with a version of this that was a bit cruder several years ago. (meow) It's good that someone has found a way to express the same concept in a socially acceptable double entendre!BB
Hey, forget the logo -- there are some CoGs where you'll get escorted out just for wearing a t-shirt!I wonder if mine is one of them...Luss: "Do they practice footwashing?"LOL!
Cool! (or should I say: "Hot!"?)This reminds me of a joke I read in a booklet published here in Belgium and designed to explain what le protestantisme is all about (authored by a lady pastor based in Brussels and published by a local Catholic publishing house):What do you call two Protestants?- A church.What do you call three Protestants?- A church and a sect!Well, I guess "two's company – whichever way you look at it!And personally I still "swear by" (not literally, as it happens) my 1960s-model Bullworker 2. In the 1970s I observed that there seemed to be lots of Bullworkers and Co-workers around in WCG UK. Sometimes I wondered half-jokingly if I would need to become good at sports in order to qualify for membership.
Personally I think this would be the best choice to wear at a "armstrong" event. T-ShirtOr better yet, this one!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!!Prepare for the end! LCG Prophet Bob Thiel predicts the GREAT TRIBULATION in will occur in 2013: "Personally, I suspect that the European King of the North may become more obvious around that time (and may be a leader, but not yet King at that time) and in retrospect may even claim that he is bringing in the positive era that some suggest the Mayan calendar may indicate As I have written before, while I do not believe that the Great Tribulation will start in 2012, 2012 is probably the earliest year that it can begin.However, because of all the hype that will be associated with 2012, I suspect that it is more likely that the great tribulation will begin in 2013 or a couple of years from that.More on 2012 and how other cultures have alluded to it is in the article End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?"
Hmmmm, I thought most of the CoGs rejected the Mayan calendar theories out of hand because they were "pagan".No?My vote for best ex-Church of God t-shirt goes like this: The traditional Basil Wolverton scene of the apocalypse, under which is the phrase:"1975 In Prophecy: The Year That Never Was"
More on 2012 and how other cultures have alluded to it is in the article End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?Yep, it means that's as far as the Mayans were willing to go with their perpetual calendar dates.See how simple that is?
I once read a speaker's "Top Ten Pickup Lines at a Christian Singles' Weekend."My favorite one to use is -- "How about giving a Love Offering?" :-->
Speaking of the good Dr. Bob....A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true. Although examples of such prophecies can be found in human literature as far back as ancient Greece and ancient India, it is 20th-century sociologist Robert K. Merton who is credited with coining the expression "self-fulfilling prophecy" and formalizing its structure and consequences. In his book Social Theory and Social Structure, Merton gives as a feature of the self-fulfilling prophecy:The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behaviour which makes the original false conception come 'true'. This specious validity of the self-fulfilling prophecy perpetuates a reign of error. For the prophet will cite the actual course of events as proof that he was right from the very beginning.In other words, a true prophetic statement — a prophecy declared as truth when it is not — may sufficiently influence people, either through fear or logical confusion, so that their reactions ultimately fulfill the false prophecy.Scary stuff when you think about Weinland and Merrydeath.......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-fulfilling_prophecy
Many self-fulfilling prophecies in the genre deal with future kingship or improved status in future life of one sort or another. But it can be a mixed blessing when you get the "kingship" you wish for. Another of the self-fulfilling variety is the idea of the inevitability of war. Is war really inevitable, or does the next great war become self-fulfilling prophecy, because people think of the next war as being that way - inevitable?The Bible can be thought of as a self-fulfilling mirror of today or as a television transporting the audience into the foreseeable future, but not much beyond that. It can be seen as a cosmic revelation to peer into the future end of days, seeing the future before it happens. Certainly most writers of the Bible, some 2-4000 years ago, had little idea of the sciences, inventions, and technologies now in everyday use. Or the Bible can be thought of as a mirror reflecting what Weinland and Merrydeath want it to say, when it was never there in the first place. Only in the Twilight Zone. Don't adjust your set.
