Monstrosity

Monstrosity: Frightful Forms of Faith

The Zombie Christian
A Zombie Christian is a person who has some of the same habits as a Christian (church attendance, Bible knowledge, etc), but has actually never made a commitment to follow Christ. They are dead men walking.

The Vampire Christian
A Vampire Christian is a person who has asked that the blood save them in their sins, but they have no intention of recognizing Jesus as their Lord. They just want a little blood.

The Werewolf Christian
A Werewolf Christian is a person who is generally committed to Christ, but there is 1 area that they refuse to surrender and/or repent of. They have a secret that they hope no one will discover.

The Head-Hunter Christian
The Head-Hunter Christian is a person that claims to have a deep spiritual relationship to Christ, but has no interest in being connected to Jesus' body. They only want the head, a decapitated Jesus.

A prof at Houghton made the 'vampire Christian' point. I thought it was worthy of further elaboration so Katie & I thought of some other connections

Fun, yeah for holloween Hi-jinks. you should find illistrations for these

Katie said...

Zombie- Michael Jackson, Thriller
Vampire- Edward Cullen, Twilight
Werewolf- Michael J Fox Teenage Werewolf
Head Hunter- Muppets Treasure Island

Unfortunately, all those illustrations are somewhat cute and funny, and the situation of people thinking these distortions of Christianity are okay is sad and ugly. :-(

No No No i completely and emphatically veto any idea that puts Edward Cullen in any position where he is representing a vampire. please go for Angel or Spike, or even Gray Oldmen when he played Dracula. don't go posting up a sparkly wannabe sunbathing blood sucker as a true bloody vamp.

Sorry Matt for ranting.
