Super discernmentalist Paul Proctor notes “Driving across town the other day, I passed by a church that always displays an inspirational message on their sign out front. Such messages are very common these days and often quite thought provoking. The one I saw most recently had me thinking all the way home.
It read: “Churches are hospitals for sinners, not museums for saints.”
“How sad and true, I thought to myself. Churches have become hospitals for sinners, haven’t they? They used to be spiritual fortresses built in enemy territory where soldiers for Christ were recruited, trained and equipped for doing battle against sin and evil in society with open bibles, convicted hearts and committed lives.”
We at ODMafia like the good old days when we could burn heretics at the stake. Or going further back in time, like St. Paul’s Corinthian church (the golden age) where good old fashioned believers had sex with their step moms and they got waisted during communion. Sigh….we wish we could go back to when times were better.

Oh the horror! Recently one of our Research Robot Monkeys noted that Emergents are now hiring psychics in a last ditch effort to undermine the Absolute Truth and Certainty of the Truth Wars. We here at the ODMafia can’t say we didn’t see this coming from a mile away as we know Emerging emergers love their mystical webs of confusion. Emergents also love Mystery over Certainty as well as coffee; candles and couches—but they’ve yet to be observed in the presence of garlic. We also have reason to suspect that these Emerging vampires have merged with Mothra feminists in order to ramp up their newly found psychic abilities in order to assault unsuspecting Truth Warriors in the field of battle for our Truth. Other noted ODMs are now in the midst of battling for our Truth—researchmentalizing new techniques in Spiritual Warfare to curb these assaults.

It pains us to note that our very own Bible Bearing, Bible Belt wearing partner Take A Stand Ministries Eric Barger is noting that discernmentalism is getting ugly….we at ODMafia (with our keen sense of discernmentalism) note that it has take a new step towards Extra-Ugly.
But we won’t use the “H” word for “hypocrisy,” ….but we should.
Thank goodness that ODMafia has purer doctrines and sticks to the Bible.
Eric asks ‘When did “Guilt by Association” become “Apologetics?”
Eric this is one of your premiere ways of discernmentalism – don’t abandon ship now! We are fearful Eric is having severe memory gaps (this is often the case with discernmentalists).
That is one of the prime tactics of Take A Stand Ministries expertize (emphasis with a “Z”).
Guilt By Association Examined….
If you cite a Roman Catholic you are a false teacher.
If you are friends with an emergent…you are an apostate.
If you had tea with Brian McLaren …you are on your way to hell, Canada or the Roman Catholic Church.
PS Eric states “Scripture indicates that the early Church leaders experienced sharp disagreements but were able to work through their differences without maligning each other.” see here, & here:
… we are not finished….thankgoodness for our keen sense of discernmentalism part 2 to come!
