    Young Reformed Christian Guy Realizes His 3,000 Books On Soteriology Haven’t Made Him As Deep As He’d Hoped They Would

    MESA, AZ – Jared Wilson, a 26-year-old Christian man who came to embrace the basics of Reformed theology in 2011, has come to the convicting realization that the several thousand books on God’s sovereignty that he’s bought and read again and again over the past five years have done very little to help him actually pursue the Great Commission in any kind of detail.

    Mob Of Angry, Embarrassed Christians Demand End To All Satire That They Cannot Recognize As Satire

    KNOXVILLE, TN – Angry, embarrassed Christians who’ve uncritically read satirical articles and then shared them as non-fiction truth with others are lashing out at satire itself in lieu of dealing with the obvious discernment issues brought to light by their uncritical embrace of the articles in question.


    As new Christian satire sites like The Babylon Bee and The End Times continue to gain traction and pump a steady stream of Christian worldview-based satire into social media, thereby hoping to positively impact a long-neglected area of the culture, many Christians have found themselves thoughtlessly absorbing and regurgitating the satirical articles in question as though they were actual, non-fiction truth.

    Upon realizing the mistake, some have seized the opportunity to recognize and repent of the laziness and lack of discernment that caused them to accept and then share fiction as fact. Others, however, have chosen to target the satirical articles themselves as inherently evil and are calling for their complete and total abolition.

    Realize it's a satire site and to me, that one isn't quite so funny. Russell Moore would no more build mosques than Santa would come in July.
