Calvinistic Pick-Up line

Standard

We are off to Canada for the holiday weekend.

Enjoy your life, your family, friends and all God’s creation.

What’s even better about this comic is the comments on the original post, see here

I couldn’t find any review I did of this movie, so here goes…

The Last Sin Eater [official page]

We saw this movie in the theater, I really don’t frequent movies all that often, but I read the book and sort-of conned the boys into coming with me. Without telling them the premise of the movie, I told them, it would be exciting enough to keep them awake.

Surprising enough, they both loved it.

The sin-eater would take the offering of the town folk laid on the body of the deceased to take away his sins. The sin eater  character was an awesome part of the movie, so I don’t want to give too many details on him.

The stranger, who preached the gospel to some of the town folk wasn’t given a big enough part, but he was an important part on changing some well-thought out, devious traditions the folks had.

Good movie, for all ages and genders. Written by a woman, told from a girls point of view, but not ‘girly’, many diverse struggles and side stories, also.

Watch and come tell me what you thought of it.

Ro 11:27 – “THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, WHEN I TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS.” Heb 10:4 -For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Heb 10:11 -Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; 1Jo 3:5 -You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

 

Ro 5:11 – And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.
Ro 11:15 -For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?       
2Co 5:18 – Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
2Co 5:19 -namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

  1. Hey, I used to use that line!
    I also used (on the “looser” women…):
    “Let’s go out and I can show you my total depravity.”
    or
    “Let me show you just how long a saint can persevere.”

    For a good Sin Eater based movie–along with appropriate blasts at the Catholic Church and the AntiChrist, try The Order (not the one with Van Damned, the other one.)

  2. I thought that comic was funny.

    Read the Sin-Eater book. Took awhile to get interested. The wife likes some of her stuff (particularly Redeeming Love and The Shofar Blew). Michael Landon Jr has been pumping out lots of movies lately, most affiliated with the Fox Faith distribution. Haven’t seen any tho

  3. my wife’s background is crc (dutch folk the lot of them-i keep threatening to make a t-shirt that says *i see dutch people* and wear it there) but we’ve moved too far away to attend her parent’s church and the few examples out our way are of the fossilized variety.

    good church though.

    i miss going.

    i like the methodists well enough, but all told a little to staid for me tastes.

  4. do you know how hard it is to understand a dutch canadian?
    really hard.
    they have the t-shirt already on that t-shirt website, where you can make your own, i can’t remember the name.

  5. i took enough german in highschool to follow the conversations of even the thickest accented dutch americans (even the michigan flavored ones) but it might throw me off if they started commingling dutch and french.

    or tossed in the random bob and doug mckenzie *eh* at the end of every other sentence.
