Beware the False Conversion!

Meet Todd Friel. Todd hosts an appropriately named program called "Wretched Radio." It should come as no surprise after you watch this video that this program used to be called "Way of the Master Radio." Watch as Todd tells a youth worker that he's not really saved: [youtube 4hoq5MRMYEY] Here's my problem with Todd, Way of the Master, and everyone else cut from that cloth: 1) Jesus never called us to make converts. Ever. Go look, I'll wait....

Fundie Friday part 8

Maybe he knows of a different Jesus?

  Last week, there was a sickening story that caught some national attention out of Tennessee.   Firefighters refused to help a family who's house was burning to the ground.  Why?  Because they hadn't paid the $75 annual fee.  To their credit, the fire department did eventually show up- to spray the property line to keep the neighbors' houses from burning too.  The family...
