the righteous for the unrighteous -
1 Peter 3:18
Dear Barabbas,I was originally going to write a short note thanking you for your blog and more specifically, for both your entries on New Covenant Theology, as well as your recent entries on the NIV. As a former KJV-only type, they have really been excellent articles for me to read and I have learned quite a bit from them. But, as a Christian, I don't know how you justify putting a photo of KanYe West on your site. Below is a sample of his lyrics. Sorry, you really lost me on this one. I won't waste my time on your site again. Kanye West – Dark Fantasy LyricsYeah, yeah, yeah, yeahI fantasized about this back in Chicagomercy, mercy me, that Murcielagothat’s me, the first year that I blowhow you say broke in Spanish?

Ol' Anonymous,Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!Silly Anonymous. Keep thinking through this. This photo no more endorses "KanYe"'s immoral lyrics than you posting them IN FULL in your comment. You didn't even bleep out the F-word or anything! Straight silly. If anything, this photo does offend me. I can't BELIEVE someone of Blake's caliber would post a photo with such a blatant expression of disloyalty to the state of Texas! Blake needs to check his heart, for reals!! This post of Kanye (which I'm inclined to spot as subtle glamorization) could be symptoms of Texas-treason in its early stages. You can bet I'll be monitoring this blog closely from now on!!Anyway. I look forward to your response, but since you won't be "wasting your time" on this site again, I guess I'll never hear from you, unless of course you do revisit--which would be an endorsement of lying if I'm following you, right? Maybe it's just me.Gone,Ep
Dear Anonymous,I try not to respond to anonymous comments, but I think some clarification may help. This picture is supposed to be funny. It is not simply me posting a random picture of a rapper I like or endorse. People who know me know I am a Mavs fan. The Mavs (short for Mavericks) are a basketball team in Dallas and are part of the National Basketball Association (commonly called the NBA). In the top picture, Kanye is rocking a Mavs hat. In the bottom picture, Kanye is hiding his Mavs hat because he is taking a picture with Dwayne Wade. Dwayne Wade is a player for the Miami Heat. The Miami Heat are also a team in the National Basketball Association. The Heat made it to the championship this year where they lost to the Dallas Mavericks. Get it? Funny, right? Kanye is a Mavs fan until a Heat comes around. Then he hides his hat. Make sense now? Still lost?As Ep noted, please "bleep" out any future expletives you are tempted to post on this website.Ep, no Texas treason going on here.
