"We will not be able to recover the vision and understanding of God's grandeur until we recover an understanding of ourselves as creatures who have been made to know such grandeur. This must begin with the recovery of the idea that as beings made in God's image, we are fundamentally moral beings, not consumers, that the satisfaction of our psychological needs pales in significance when compared with the enduring value of doing what is right. Religious consumers want to have a spirituality for the same reason that they want to drive a stylish and expensive auto. Costly obedience is as foreign to them in matters spiritual as self-denial is in matters material. In a culture filled with such people, restoring weight to God is going to involve much more than simply getting some doctrine straight; it's going to entail a complete reconstruction of the modern self-absorbed pastiche personality."

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
