It’s Official: There is Nothing More Mindless Than a Protestant

You can’t make this stuff up. RC Sproul’s Ligonier ministry is sponsoring a Caribbean study cruise and guess what the theme is?

Our theme will be “Christ’s call to endure persecution and suffering faithfully.”

That is, according to emails I have received, before Julie Anne Smith of Spiritual Sounding and others began mocking Sproul et al on Twitter. The post was then changed to…

Our theme will be “Persevering in the Christian Life,”


If one signs up for the cruise in which the depths of suffering will be plunged, admission to the 2015 Ligonier National Conference is free and features the usual who’s who of the Neo-Calvinist movement. The theme there is…

We live in a day of darkness, when the gospel and the church are under attack on every front.

I sent my own tweet to one of the speakers in regard to that theme.

And when are these guys ever home pasturing their own churches? Let me get this straight: you can pastor a church, be a conference superstar, and supply the spiritual needs of your own family as well? Wow, I guess that’s why they make the big bucks.

I can only compare the mass mindlessness that we are witnessing today to Germany during the rise of Adolf Hitler. It’s the same kind of mindless following on a mass scale.
