Saturday Morning Rant!!

By Patrick Hawthorne



Forgive me…I’m on a rant against all those who think they will be much heard for their intellectual  Hoo-Hah!  If I have to use a dictionary to understand every other word of what you are trying to convey, you might be an intelligent rock head.

K.I.S.S  (Keep It Simple Seminarians!)

(Note to the reader: The theological police intercepted this article prior to posting.  It should be noted that the author attempted to substitute the word “Seminarians,” with the word, “Stupid,” as in “Keep It Simple Stupid.”)

Ok…Rant is now complete.  You many resume your normal life.

    Thank you…I have to agree…some of us (me) enjoy the simple message without the use of a dictionary, concordance, reference books…I’ll never make it past the first confusing sentence. Rant complete!

    I like the ending for KISS! I agree with you the importance of trying to keep it simple. I feel the tug of two audiences for the blog at times; but definitely in ministry I think it has to be KISS all the way…and for the purpose of loving and shepherding God’s people and loving the lost.

    I believe it was the great Karl Barth whose response to a student’s question about the most profound theological truth he’d ever learned was, “Jesus loves me, this I know…”
