What are you doing for Halloween?

October 16, 2009

Tired of your church’s worn out harvest party?  Why not join Amazing Grace Baptist Church in holding a book burning targeting Satanic material.  So as not to overstate Amazing Grace Baptist Church’s plans for their book burning, here is the text of their plans for the event:

Halloween Book Burning
Burning Perversions of God’s Word
October 31, 2009

7:00 PM – Till

Great Preaching and Singing

Come to our Halloween book burning. We are burning Satan’s bibles like the NIV, RSV, NKJV, TLB, NASB, NEV, NRSV, ASV, NWT, Good News for Modern Man, The Evidence Bible, The Message Bible, The Green Bible, ect. These are perversions of God’s Word the King James Bible.

We will also be burning Satan’s music such as country , rap , rock , pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel , contempory Christian , jazz, soul, oldies but goldies, etc.

We will also be burning Satan’s popular books written by heretics like Westcott & Hort , Bruce Metzger, Billy Graham , Rick Warren , Bill Hybels , John McArthur, James Dobson, Charles Swindoll , John Piper, Chuck Colson, Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart, Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham , Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn , Joyce Myers, Brian McLaren, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa , The Pope , Rob Bell, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning, William Young, etc.

We are not burning Bibles written in other languages that are based on the TR. We are not burning the Wycliffe, Tyndale, Geneva or other translations that are based on the TR.

We will be serving Bar-b-Que Chicken, fried chicken, and all the sides.

If you have any books or music to donate, please call us for pick-up. If you like you can drop them off at our church door anytime. Thanks.

If you think this is a hoax, click here for Google’s cached version of the site, here for an interview of the pastor or here for a link to the now suspended church website (due to too much traffic) where the event was originally posted.

My goal in writing this post is not to make fun (though I certainly got a laugh from reading this myself), but just to say, please people, leave your Bibles and Mother Theresa books at home and find some other more beneficial way to spend your Halloween…

(HT Gene Veith and Francis Beckwith for bringing this to my attention)

    So Joey, should I start praying now that one day your name and mine make that list. I wouldn’t mind my writings being included in a list with Billy Graham, James Dobson, Mother Theresa and company?

    Lol! Yeah, pretty awesome. Should’ve titled it “Come join these heretics”

  3. joewulf Says:

    Lol! Yeah, pretty awesome. Should’ve titled it “Heretics To Be Like”–of course there were some other authors on there (Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, etc.) that aren’t so commendable…

  4. Amy Says:

    That’d be why I listed specific ones (and company). I recognized a few from my own red flag list as well.

  5. […] Enjoy and please no Bible burning! […]
