Remember last week when I went to see the Avett Brothers at Red Rocks in Colorado and they covered a Beyonce song? That was cool.

what do you think of "rape culture"

I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking… Are you asking if I think that “rape culture” is a legitimate thing? Or are you asking how I feel about it? 

In the first case: Yes, I believe that “rape culture” is real. To say that it is not would be total ignorance. The older I get the more it is made abundantly clear that we live in a rape culture… If you are a woman and you deny the idea that we live in a rape culture, I can only assume that you live in an underground tunnel, completely isolated from any male interaction. If you are a man and you deny this idea, you are probably a part of the problem, whether you are consciously aware of it or not.

In the second case: I hate it. I especially hate that we just pass it off with statements like, “men just think differently” or “maybe you shouldn’t wear shorts”.

Rape culture is real and it is wrong.

Watching a sermon and drinking a beer because I am a Presbyterian.

Forever confused about if a “microwave oven” is a microwave, a toaster oven, or something entirely different.

"You always know you’re talking to a Baptist when they say “Brother”. See, Presbyterians don’t talk like that because we’re not really sure you are a Brother! You know? That’s God’s business, not ours! You may or may not be one of the elect! Brother? We’ll see!"
Tullian Tchividjian - hahahahahaha I love it when Presbyterians make fun of themselves. (From this video)

Hey, Christians… Could we possibly refrain from calling the young woman who filmed her abortion a “sick bitch who belongs in hell”? 

Great, thanks.

"One of our problems with these so-called refined sins is that we have become too comfortable with the whole concept of sin. Because we do sin so frequently we learn to coexist with it as long as it doesn’t get too out of control or scandalous. We forget, or perhaps have never learned, how seriously God regards all sins."
Jerry Bridges
"If we look externally, there is difference between washing dishes and preaching the Word of God, but as touching to please God, there is no difference at all. That’s a biblical view of work, that there’s no difference when done to the honor of the Lord between preaching and washing the dishes."
William Tyndale

I just wanted to say I just found your blot but I sincerely enjoy it. It really just made my day brighter seeing all those quotes by some of my favorite theologians. God Bless :)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate that.

Have a blessed week, my friend
