Now in from the ODMafia Research Robot Monkeys …according to Slice of Laodicea “Tim Challies today has decided to criticize those blogs that he believes use bad news as “entertainment.” Challies does not bother to specifically address what blogs/bloggers he is talking about, and as a result, anyone who reads a news and views blog can be made to feel that they may be in sin for doing so.” Ingrid felt compelled to reply to Tim Challies.
How dare CHALLIES to not name names!!!!
Our research team asked why SoL posted felt lead to post” I posted a comment under Challies’ post, and those who view the information at Slice as valuable are welcome to weigh in with your views. Slice has never been about entertaining people with the tragic state of evangelicalism. Challies, sitting at a distance and viewing those who have a different calling than his own, feels that he can call into question not only the motives of those such as myself, but also the motives of those who read this blog. He is wrong. (our emphasis)”
…our Research Robot Monkeys have some observations and questions
1) Isn’t SoL sitting at a distance with a ‘calling’ as well?
2) Why is SoL worrying about its own motives if it is not named….which brings up another point….
3) While no names are named….we at ODmafia find it odd that SoL would feel so guilt ridden to have to clarify its position.
4) If SoL has never been about “entertaining people with the tragic state of evangelicalism” what exactly is it about? ODMafia thinks that entertaining people with the tragic state of evangelism is state of the art discernment….how DARE anyone question our MOTIVES!
Besides WE are above reproach due to our hieghtened discernemenalist abilities!

According to Slice of Laodicea “**In this post I state that I made a comment under Challies’ post. The comment has not appeared yet for some reason. Having seen other comments approved since but not mine, I will post my as yet unpublished comment at the end of this.**”
We at ODMafia also protests Ingrid’s inability to post at http://www.challies.com! Like SoL we enjoy the ability to freely exchange and post our opinions on blogs.. – just not OUR OWN!!! We demand that other websites and blogs comply immediately to her demands. Hyper-orthodox-truth-warrior-discernment ministries like ours should never be questioned BUT always heard.

It is well known in Discernmentalist circles that ODMs plan to send Discermentalists to Mars in the cause of truth (no one else is that SERIOUS about truth as we are). A discernmentalist describes his time at the Michigan Research Hab;
“The Michigan Hab is situated in the midst of a barren, red, Emergent-strewn landscape, which is really reminiscent of Mars, especially the scenes familiar to those who have viewed the photographs taken by Eric Barger’s Take A Stand Ministry Rover or the Slice of Laodicea spacecraft,” said Sven Svendesnord, one of the organisers of Expedition One and President of the Mars Discernment Society of Sweden.
An unnamed spokesman for the ODM stated the following “Truth Warriors must go to Mars and take back the truth…phase 2 of this faux mission will allow truthers to spend more time in researchmentalism in the cause of the truth war…we are unstoppable.” For the final phase before actually flying to Mars in 2018, special ODMs will learn to hold their breath for days at a time.
Some scientists surmise that the real Online Discernment Mars Expedition may run on hot air…. we at ODMafia cannot confirm or deny the existance of this hot air technology.
