Reformation Day in Review

I don't know about you guys, but I had a great time on Reformation Day. The church we attend (Christian Life Center) had an activity night that we called Reformation Celebration geared towards educating the kids about the Protestant Reformation while simultaneously having fun. "How do you do that?", you may be asking yourself. Well, you do it by playing games like: Bible Smuggling, Pin the Thesis on the Door and Diet of Worms (topped off by singing The Reformation Polka!). Also... you have snacks. Good times were had by all.

On another note...

A couple of posts ago I gave a couple of links to a couple of articles that delt with how Christians should handle Halloween. One of those articles attempted to give some insight into the origins of this cultural/secular/pagan/disturbing/(insert non-Christian term here.) "holiday". This article appeared to give some evidence to a Christian origin for Halloween, and I even made the comment that my beliefs may be changing. Well, they haven't. As one of our friends' students said, "Halloween's the Devil's birthday!" Now, I am sure that, for those of you who read that article, you immediately said to yourself, "Wait a minute... what does Al Mohler say about all of this?" Well, here you go. (For future reference, I will use the abbreviation WWMS for "What would Mohler say?" ... always a good question.) peace.

Yes, yes, one should be slow to speak on any subject until one has investigated whether Mohler has written anything on the matter. I too know quite well the painful feeling of a "nevermind" due to speaking too soon in ignorance. Yeah.

i guess ignorance is better than stupidity. on the other hand, being ignorant on a subject and then speaking about that subject anyway may fall into the 'stupid' category.

no prob.
