"The great danger of Christian discipleship is that we should have two religions: a glorious, biblical Sunday gospel that sets us free from the world, that in the cross and resurrection of Christ makes eternity alive in us, a magnificent gospel of Genesis and Romans and Revelation; and, then, an everyday religion that we make do with during the week between the time of leaving the world and arriving in heaven. We save the Sunday gospel for the big crises of existence. For the mudane trivialities, . . . we use the everyday religion of the Reader's Digest reprint, advice from a friend, an Ann Landers column, the huckstered wisdom of a talk-show celebrity. We practice patent-medicine religion: we know that God created the universe, . . . [b]ut we can't believe that he condescends to watch the soap opera of our daily trials and tribulations."

OK, Bird's plea for funny youtube videos led someone to post a link that led to this link, and I had to post it.

This just killed me.

If you don't bust a gut watching this, I'll give you your money back.

I watched this at work and was eating my lunch. My diet coke literally flew out of my nose onto the computer screen. That was the funniest thing....thanks for the laugh.

Funny! Whoever did this vid did one for Easter too. It was hilarious! We saw it at a church in Houston last Easter (can't remember the name.)

We used this one in our Sunday service a couple of months ago. It got rave reviews there, too.

bad theology "salvation is man dependent", but funny, though it rips off the office linebacker Super Bowl commericial from a few years back
