Happy Anthony Diehl Day! Are you ready to sing?

Today is October 28th, Anthony Diehl day!  It’s a Canadian holiday, not celebrated by most, that revolves around…dispensationalism.

I’m confused too, since it’s a brand new holiday (it’s about an hour old…we’re still working out the kinks).

But have you ever read someone’s talking about the scripture and basically made this face?

Maary-Poppins hears bad exegesis

Well, bad interpretation of scripture is all over the place.  So here’s a little ditty that you can sing while studying the scripture, to help prevent others from looking at you with a similar face:

In every text that has been bent,
There is authorial intent
Find the intent, and snap!
It’s understood!

And as you start to understand
All the things that the Lord has planned
OT! NT!
It’s very clear to see…

That a…
Spoonful of Dispy makes the metaphors go down
The metaphors go dow-own
The metaphors go down
Just a spoonful of Dispy makes the metaphors go down
In a most insightful way!

A scarlet thread on Rahab’s sill
is not misunderstood until
The New Testament was here
In complete form

Though one sounds spiritual at first
Confusion goes from bad to worse
When words don’t mean
What context would convene…

And a…
Spoonful of Dispy makes the metaphors go down
The metaphors go dow-own
The metaphors go down
Just a spoonful of Dispy makes the metaphors go down
In a most insightful way!

Happy Anthony Diehl day, and remember:

  1. Um…who’s Anthony Diehl? I tried a web and Wikipedia search and couldn’t find anything. Very creative lyrical work though.

  2. Speaking of bad interpretation of scripture, I was wondering if you could help me do this,

    In every text that has been bent,
    There is authorial intent
    Find the intent, and snap!
    It’s understood!

    with this,

    Acts 2:1-2
    When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were altogether in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.

    You see, we had a guest pastor speaking at our church this past Sunday that basically said that until our church does this,

    Phil. 2:1-2
    So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

    And this,

    Heb.13:17
    Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.

    then Acts 2:1-2 will not happen in our church.

    However, I had no idea Acts 2:1-2 was suppose to happen again! Ever! Let alone in my church. What say you, Lyndon? I’d love to hear your feed back on this issue if you get the chance!

    Thanks,

    • Well, Pentecost was the coming of the promised Holy Spirit. I don’t have a clue how the Holy Spirit can be given to the elect again, seeing that he’s already here.

      Beyond that, your guest preacher just slung together to random texts from two different books and suggested that those two things had to happen before a new Pentecost.

      So why is that exactly?

      Where does he learn that from the scripture?

      Why those two scriptures and not four, or six, or seventy-seven?

      It’s completely arbitrary and made-up, that’s why. Whoever that guest speaker was, he wasn’t telling you what the Bible actually means. He made up his own “meaning” and then lied to your church about the Bible.

      Probably best to not have a guy like that back…
