A Friday night weekend light reading review!  Don’t miss the end of this review where I have a Christian reflection.

Geoff Johns.  DC Universe: Rebirth. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, May 25th 2016. 80 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I enjoyed this work.  Having been interested with Comics only the last few years I started reading Batman and a few other DC Comics materials during their “New 52” era and was surprised to learn that in the middle of 2016 they stopped the New 52 reboot with a new era company-wide change called “Rebirth.”  This work was helpful in explaining to me what Rebirth is about and the possible direction DC comics is going.

I just saw Huffington Post had a recent piece written on their front page for their religion column titled “Former Mayor Of Hell Rewrites Bible To Make It Really, Really Gay (NSFW).”  It has the above picture as its main picture to get people to click on it from the religion column.

Basically the article was about a guy making a mockery of the Bible.  You know it is bad when it has to be labeled NSFW which means it is not safe for work.  It’s essentially giving blasphemy against the Bible a platform on a national leftist website and the feel of the article is it was written and shared to make readers laugh.  For a website that talks a lot about fake news, one wonders if this piece that is more fitting for the Onion gets front and center stage as a news coverage where a Youtube comedian is quoted from his childish tweets all to get readers to laugh while the Huff Post writer drops his own lines alluding to the Bible.

I just wonder if Huff Po religion does the same thing with the Quran or with Islam in general like how they post things on the Bible and Christianity…or if there’s a double standard with the editors’ decision of what they select.  Not that I’m encouraging people to desecrate the Quran but I wonder would the Leftists over at Huff Post put similar pieces in content, tone and attention with the Quran?

I had to verify this is real before I posted it.  Royal Dutch Airlines posted a tweet advancing the LGBT agenda but it was so ironic.

They posted this picture:

They posted the following words:

It doesn’t matter who you click with. Happy 🏳️‍🌈

Here’s the link to the original tweet:

I think sin makes people blind to irony.  Go ahead look at the picture and take all the time you need.

Yesterday I posted “The Mess: Eugene Peterson’s affirmation of Homosexuality” in which I examined Eugene Peterson’s comments that affirmed same-sex marriage and gay relationship in light of the Scriptures.  It turns out that Eugene Peterson faced such backlashed that he issued a retraction as Christianity Today (more like Christianity Astray) reported.  But the retraction to me brought more concerns than comfort.

Here’s my take on his recent comments.

Today’s big news in American Evangelicalism is Eugene Peterson’s “changing his mind about same-sex issues and marriage” as the headlines over at Religion News stated it.  Religionnews.com broke the news based upon an interview that Eugene Peterson did with their writer Jonathan Merritt.

Here’s the relevant portion of that interview:

RNS: You are Presbyterian, and your denomination has really been grappling with some of the hot button issues that we face as a culture. I think particularly of homosexuality and same-sex marriage. Has your view on that changed over the years? What’s your position on the morality of same-sex relationships?

EP: I haven’t had a lot of experience with it. But I have been in churches when I was an associate pastor where there were several women who were lesbians. They didn’t make a big deal about it. I’d go and visit them and it never came up for them. They just assumed that they were as Christian as everybody else in the church.

In my own congregation — when I left, we had about 500 people — I don’t think we ever really made a big deal out of it. When I left, the minister of music left. She’d been there ever since I had been there. There we were, looking for a new minister of music. One of the young people that had grown up under my pastorship, he was a high school teacher and a musician. When he found out about the opening, he showed up in church one day and stood up and said, “I’d like to apply for the job of music director here, and I’m gay.” We didn’t have any gay people in the whole congregation. Well, some of them weren’t openly gay. But I was so pleased with the congregation. Nobody made any questions about it. And he was a really good musician.

I wouldn’t have said this 20 years ago, but now I know a lot of people who are gay and lesbian and they seem to have as good a spiritual life as I do. I think that kind of debate about lesbians and gays might be over. People who disapprove of it, they’ll probably just go to another church. So we’re in a transition and I think it’s a transition for the best, for the good. I don’t think it’s something that you can parade, but it’s not a right or wrong thing as far as I’m concerned.

RNS: A follow-up: If you were pastoring today and a gay couple in your church who were Christians of good faith asked you to perform their same-sex wedding ceremony, is that something you would do?

EP: Yes.

As with everything in life for Christians we must be biblical and practice biblical discernment and critical thinking in our evaluation of what people have to say, even if they are a “Christian celebrity” among Evangelicalism.  Here’s my thoughts:

What is a man and a woman?

In this series of posts we will see 7 truth derived from Genesis 1:26-28 concerning God’s creation of man and woman so that we would understand God’s design of manhood and womanhood for our lives today.

Why this study on Genesis 1?

  • We want to see how God intended men and woman to be so that we understand the role for today.
  • While Genesis 1 is a summary of the creation of man and woman we see that there are a lot of truths that is established here that is foundational for the Bible’s discussion of manhood and womanhood.

Let us start with the first truth that lays the foundation for all else that follows.
