Jesus wore pants

Watch this sermon. You will quickly conclude one of two things. First, you might conclude that things like vestments and women clergy are to be avoided, because they are not pants-like. You might further conclude that your previous ideas about sartorial history are wrong. Or, second, you might conclude that it’s possible to say just about any ridiculous thing you want and claim that it’s scriptural. In this case, you might further reflect on other times you’ve seen God’s word misused recently.

By the way, I thought this was a spoof at first, but this video and the church look real. I’d like to be wrong about that, actually. Thanks to Unthinking Anglicans for drawing my attention to this.

    I did a search and the church does indeed seem legit. Here is the website I found. There are links to several other sermons….

    From the website:

    “Pastor Anderson holds no college degree but has well over 100 chapters of the Bible committed to memory, including approximately half of the New Testament.”

  3. I am in Church History 1 and can’t watch, but is this the same guy that did the “He that pisseth against the wall” sermon?

    Yes, Joseph, this is the same guy. I won’t post a link to that sermon on this blog. If you liked that one (and I use a broad definition of “like”) then you’ll enjoy this one too.

    It amuses me greatly to think of people looking at 7WD during a seminary church history class.

    Tell me what you’re studying now, and I’ll post appropriate material for your next class. Really.

  5. Next period Fr. Wright will read to us his notes on Early Christian Catechesis. That’s tomorrow from 10:10-11:30.

    “Is any body listening?”

    Oh my. Sunday morning on why women shouldn’t wear pants. In spite of the “soul winning” photos on the website, I believe that this might be what “emergence” and “missional” look like in Bizarro World.
