All,
Not sure how many of you have read Marc Carpenter's scary newsletter Outside the Camp. (I posted on an earlier thread on this issue).

Recently, I wrote a letter to him, trying to demonstrate that his view is a form of perfectionism (no, I don't have a strange love of inflicting pain upon myself). He published the letter under a pseudonym and called me a God-hater. My wife got a good laugh out of his response!

As those of you who have read his 'work' know, he typically takes a godly man of the faith and "exposes" him as a God hater condemned for hell. He has done this with Arthur Pink, Charles Hodge, Gordon Clark, the entire Protestant Reformed Church, John Calvin, Louis Berkhof, John Reisinger, Thomas Boston, and Charles Spurgeon, as well as others.

I figure by the end of 2003, his next article will be, "John the Apostle, a God-hater".

Steve

Steve,

Marc Carpenter is suffering from an illness that is called, "Cranial Rectosis"! rofl

His views remind me of a joke my grandfather once told me (he was an unbeliever par excellencé):
A man dies and stands before the "Pearly Gates" when Peter approaches him and asks where he would like to live out his eternity. He is then directed to an elevator that begins to go up. The elevator operator then begins to speak:

"First floor; Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses!"
"Second floor; Buddhists, Mohammedans, Taoists!"
"Third floor; Moonies, Wiccans!"
"Fourth floor; All Protestants!"
"Fifth floor; Shhhhhhhhhhh!!! You have to be very quiet here."
"Sixth floor; etc. etc....."

And so it went. When they arrived at the ground floor again, after making the journey, Peter asked the man what floor he belonged on.

The man replied that he wanted to be on the Fourth Floor as he was a Methodist. He then asked, "But what's with all this hush-hush about on the Fifth floor?

Peter replied, "Oh..... that's where the Catholics are and they think they are the only one's up here!"

Pilgrim,
I've heard different versions of that joke and I love every one!

One question....is "cranial rectosis" treatable? [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/flatcat.gif" alt="flatcat" title="flatcat[/img]

Blessings,
Steve

From what I've heard there are two unproven methods.

    [*]A large set of forceps in the hands of a skilled construction worker.[*]Have the "victim" eat lots of bean burritos.[/LIST]Methinks that Mr. Carpenter has missed his calling. bigglasses There was a job opportunity listed in the local paper here which I think would be perfect for him. The ad ran as:
    Wanted: Skin Diver for Roto Rooter. Job pays $1 per hour and all you can eat!

He will probably end up with God hating Himself in the final edition.... grin

Well now you're dating yourself Pilgrim, because that joke could only have been told prior to Vatican II. [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif" alt="laugh" title="laugh[/img]

Good one!

Okay, okay..... you found me out! rofl Definitely a dated joke. I think I first heard it from my gramps in 1963. But I suspect it had been around many years prior to that.
