Nina of eNO is cool

You may have seen this before. I mainly wanted to post this here so that I could easily find it again. This little blurb was extra funny for me because the Kerux at GFC just finished a great series on the armour of God. Nina of the eNO blog apparently found this from the Shelton Student Pastor @ Redwood Chapel, Castro Valley, CA. Whoever he is...Since I have neither the time or the desire to enter into the "conversation," let this quote stand as an appreciation of a fine wit and not a statement.


Emerging Armor

Finally, be passionate in the Lord, and in the transparency of His authenticity. Put on the authentic accoutrement of God, that you may be able to appear relevant within the spirit of the age. For our struggle for relevance is not against flesh and blood, but against steeples, against propriety, against the dry doctrines of denominations, against the spirit of inauthenticity within our stodgy churches. Therefore, take up the accoutrement of God, that you may be able to be passionate at the coffee shop, and having done everything, to appear relevant. Be relevant therefore, having pierced your eyebrow with the mark of latent rebellion, and having recently ordered a double-shot vanilla latte, and having put on your lower leg the preparation of a tattoo; in addition to all, taking up your copy of The Emerging Church, with which you will be able to extinguish all the inauthentic non-missional impulses of submergent critics. And take the BlackBerry of connectedness and the iPod of background noise which is “the word up, Dog.”

Ephesians 6:10-17 (sort of)



ps. one critique - word up, dog is soooo 90s.

I dont know if I should laugh or cry?! perhaps a bit of both...for a moment, I thought you were quoting "The Message"...I dont know which is worse. Well, it sure makes you thankful to God that we have the truth! Keep reading your Bible bro & delight in Christ!!

P.S please post more :-)
