Two More Reasons People Think Christianity is a Joke

First, the shameless redefining of holy words that make the Holy Spirit look like a fool:

And then the shameless merchandising of holy practices:

In one sense, these athiests have a straw man argument. Whether it is wrong to package oil and sell it for a profit is irrelevant to the claims of Christianity. It doesn't prove or disprove anything. However, this kind of profiteering is disgusting and way more common than it should be.

As for the guys in the top video...in our search for the touch and moving of the Holy Spirit, we have to be extremely careful what we attribute to God. To throw Biblical words like "anointing" around attached to wierd stuff like this is treating the real touch of God too flippantly.

I get frustrated over the hesitancy of people to say something is not of God just because someone else says it is. There doesn't seem to be too much "testing of the spirits" going on these days. I suspect that there is a spirit involved here, but I don't think it is the Spirit of God. Is this the best God can do? A Pheasant? Please.

To me, this is scary, scary stuff.
