Continuing Tilling's 'When asked'

As Chris Tilling has given a go at this, I figured I would.

When asked about whether the resurrection actually happened....

Spong: Well, as a former Episcopal Bishop let me just say that it is certain that Jesus did not actually rise from the dead. Did I mention that I’m a former Episcopal Bishop? This resurrection nonsense has to go – we have to modernize Christianity. Episcopal Bishop…

Wittgenstein: What do you mean by “Did” and “Resurrection” and “Happen”?

Zwingli: Did you just deny the resurrection? Would you like to take a swim in Lake Zurich?

Ehrman: Interestingly, I’ve just written 6 books in the last week on the subject – the answer’s no – read all about it!

National Geographic Society: We’re staying out of this one – we’ve learned our lesson.

History Channel: But not us! Watch next week as we have a panel of people who have no clue what they’re talking about propagating sexy new theories on the resurrection!

John A.T. Robinson: Jesus would be rolling over in his grave if he knew what you people were saying about him.

Irenaeus: God smites heretics – just letting you know.

T.D. Jakes: You better believe Jesus rose from the dead – and his new clothes were super blinging. You know Jesus was stylin’ and profilin’ post-resurrection, he had his Easter clothes on, son!

Joel Osteen: Now -*smiles* - I’ve not actually read the Bible, but I am aware that there’s some talk of resurrection. Honestly, though, I think the most important thing is whether Jesus wants us to be rich and the answer is obviously - - - send me money to find the answer!

Donald Miller: Lets snuggle – mmm mmm. Who wants to make s’mores and talk about how we feel when we say the name Jesus? You do? Well yay – Christ-hugs for everyone!

Spong is still a bishop in good standing in the Episcopal Church. He is retired from pastoral work, but would still be a bishop....and a heretic.

Funny! Especially the T.D. Jakes take on the Resurrection. Truly Christ would had to be stylin'. He had a glorified body and threads blazin' with that glossy stuff. Only made in Heaven!

Blessings!
