With Apologies To Charlie Daniels

(A fictional account of a meeting between John MacArthur and Robert Schuller)

Bobby Went Down To Sun Valley

Bobby went down to Sun Valley, looking for some sheep to steal,
He was in a bind, 'cause he was way behind, he was looking to make a deal.
When he came upon a preacher-man, reading the Word, and praying a lot,
He jumped up on a podium and said, "Boy, let me tell you what!"

"You probably never knew it, but I've read the Bible too,
and if you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
You're pretty good there son, but give ole Bobby his due,
A Cathedral of Glass for your flock, I think I'm better than you!"

The preacher-man said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be bad form,
but I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret, I'm the best there ever been!"
Johnny pray up your soul, and study real hard, 'cause hell's broke lose in 'Fornia, and Bobby deals the cards. If you win you'll get this Cathedral of Glass, but if you lose Bobby gets your flock.
Bobby said, "I'll start this show," and fire flew from his tongue-tip,
And as he opened up his mouth he made an evil hiss, then a choir of celebrities joined in and it sounded something like this,
"Let's all be happy, happy, happy!!! Tell me an inspirational story about your journey from atheism to agnosticism, Mr. Celebrity!"

When Bobby finished, Johnny said, "You're pretty good there son, but just flop down in that pew right there, I'll show you how this stuff's done!"
"Cross on the mountain, run boys run, Bobby's in the house of the Risen Son, Preachin' Christ the Savior, the veil is torn, Here's the Gospel message, Christ enthroned!"

Well, ole Bobby knew that he'd been beat, so he laid that Cathedral down on the ground at Johnny's feet.
Johnny said, "Bobby, I don't want that thing, just my flock, I done told you once, you son of a wolf, I'm the best there ever been!"

Well done!

Whether its shape is quite dihedral, I've always had a problem with the Crystal Cathedral.

I must admit I laughed. I actually visited Schuller's church when I was in California - it was quite a show. After a musical number the pastor usually says, "And all God's people said . . ." and the people are supposed to say, "Amen." Well, not in Schuller's church. The people say, "Wow" in unison. Unbelievable!

John Rush said...

The journey from atheism to agnosticism must have been long, painful, and full of joy at the end.


Gordon Cloud said...

That was great! So is Charlie Daniels now in the camp of reformed fiddle players?

Jeremy Weaver said...

Thanks Gordon.
Charlie Daniels...reformed!? Dunno 'bout dat now.

My main cell phone ring is "devil went down to Georgia".

I don't think phone calls will ever be the same again.
