NY Pastor: God’s Wrath Is Near (Again)

Posted in LiveScience by Skepdude on March 10, 2009

We seem to be having a God theme today, so in keeping with the unofficial theme here’s an article by Benjamin Radford.

According to the founding pastor of New York City’s Times Square Church, David Wilkerson, denizens of the Big Apple should stockpile survival gear and a month’s supply of non-perishable food in preparation for an “earth-shattering calamity” that could happen at any moment. The threat is not from foreign terrorists this time, but instead from God.

Wilkerson, claiming he was prompted by the Holy Spirit, recently wrote in his blog that “An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen… It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires… There will be looting — including Times Square, New York City.” (Only a Manhattanite would assume that God’s destruction of the world would begin with New York City).

“What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath,” Wilkerson wrote. “God is judging the raging sins of America and the nations…I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off.” He suggested that those wishing to survive should gather supplies; apparently the wrath of the most powerful being in the universe can be thwarted by extra water, a flashlight, and a case of beans.

#36 The Holy Spirit

Posted in Religion, Stuff God Hates by Skepdude on July 21, 2008

Prepare thyself, he who reads this, to tremble and quake before the Incredible Word of God, as written by THE LORD HIMSELF!

Today I am going to do something I should have done a long time ago – denounce the Holy Spirit and cast him out of the Trinity forever!

Do you hear Me, Spirit? Forthwith, consider the Trinity you, Me and Jesus shared for 6,000 years completely and utterly dissolved! I do this because you’re an irritating ugly douche and I hate your stupid guts! You are such a fucking retard!

There, I said it. Finally.

Don’t act all surprised either, Spirit. This has been building for a while.

For one thing, you’ve never done anything to deserve being a full partner with Me and Jesus. We don’t need you, ok? We never did.

Honestly, what the frig did you ever do to deserve your place in the Trinity? Relay messages for Me? Kill people? You were always nothing more than a glorified errand-boy.

Nobody I know has ever liked you or cared about you, and with good reason. You’re not funny, you’re not likable, you’re just not anything. You have zero personality. You could vanish into thin air and no one would ever notice or care.

Yet despite all your flaws, I was willing to let it slide. Best to let it be I said. But then you just had to come around here and post a slew of annoying and idiotic comments on My Holy and Divine Blog. This I do not forgive!

Spirit, you are hereby stripped of all your Awesome Smiting Powers and reduced to being a mere gust of wind. You will henceforth travel the Earth for the rest of time, finding and seeking nothing, with no effect on anything at all. This is your punishment. From omnipotence to impotence! Suffer fucker! Suffer!

Note: We are seeking a new person to fill a recently opened position in The Trinity. All interested parties please respond with a resume and smiting qualifications. Suggestions/nominations also welcome.
