You're not a bag of protoplasm

Sometimes I'm asked whether we should spend time entering into non-Christian "world-views" to expose their internal inconsistencies.

Sure - if you do it like this.  But then, if you do it like this (and do listen to the song) you're not seeking to convict them of a logical contradiction but an existential one.  The former contradiction can be solved by conversion to Aristotle.  For the latter, only Jesus saves.

    Wow, I feel a new-found appreciation for my thumbs.

    We need more apologetics like this - satirical, with plenty of pedal steel guitar.

    As an aside - don't we need Jesus for the logical stuff too? Doesn't Jesus save us from futility of mind as well as from existential futility?

    Jus' thinkin'

    Our thumb-sucking pre-schooler would probably consider that song to be a perfectly logical argument for the evolutionary theory.

    Hi Pete,

    Yes indeed Jesus saves us from futile thinking (after all Christ is the Truth!). But just so long as it's *Christ* saving us from futile thinking...

    Hey Heather, yet another use for the thumb - pacifier! Bringer of life and peace.
