Chuck Swindoll has a Potty Mouth?

In the "sometimes I'm ashamed to be identified with other Christians" file, the loonies at VCY Radio Network have dropped Charles Swindoll's - yes, Chuck Swindoll's program "Insight For Living" from their radio lineup because of "crude" "vulgar" and "from-the-gutter" language. The words in question? "buns," "heck," "balls," and "crap." You can read a portion of the press release here.

It seems to me that VCY Radio Network was looking for something to get their panties in a wad about. I wish they had called me - I can think of several things that offend me a lot worse than the word "heck." Pharisaic legalists who legislate extra-biblical offenses just to make sure nobody in the world is attracted to the people or God of the Bible come to mind...

Man, that's just sad. I think I'm going to go drink a beer, see a movie and then go out dancing. And I might, probably not, but I might just wear a mid-length skirt. oh no, wait, the horror of it all. I can't possibly be a follower of Christ with such wild and crazy ways! Hold on, let me think. What would Jesus do? Oh yeah, He'd shelter Himself from the outside world, making darn sure that He doesn't come into contact with any sinners or their ways. Wouldn't want to be thought of as unclean now would He? Yeah, that's right. And He'd do it all wearing a three piece suit. I forgot. Forgive me.

No really, forgive me. I just don't have a lot of patience for "pharisaic legalists who legislate extra-biblical offenses just to make sure nobody in the world is attracted to the people or God of the Bible." I should be more patient. God loves them too.

Feel free to delete this comment.

Where the "heck" do you get off posting "crap" like this? :) Wow, gotta love it.

Jeff,

It takes "balls" to post a comment like that on my blog. Get your "buns" to work and start being a better Christian.
