This Week in Photos 1/24/08

North Korean Leader Kim Il Sung, pauses for a moment 
to consider whether he is supra or infralapsarian 
and which group he should imprison.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair tries
to avoid questions about his converting to 
Catholicism by pretending to eat a large 
imaginary cabbage.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the company's
plans to begin releasing Bible versions this fall.
The first, known as the "Lion of Judah" version,
has been revised with much more "stable" theology
and "nifty little spaces" that keep verses in
organized piles.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
becomes furious when accused of
holding to Pauline New Perspective
theology responding with "What
you talking about N.T. Wright?!"

Catholic faithful were amused when Pope 
Benedict XVI began mass with "Here is
ze church, here is ze steeple, open ze door
und here are ze people!"

Microsoft CEO Bill Gates explains the differences
between conditional and unconditional election to
students at Liberty University.  Gates told the 
students, "Arminianism is by far the best system
of theology out there.  It works just as well and as 
smoothly as Vista."

Who needs Ergun Caner to discredit a faulty theological system when you can get Bill Gates to do it instead!

I almost fell out of my chair when I read the caption for the pope's picture. Will workman's comp cover that, I wonder?

Good of you to give equal time to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. I always had an inkling that Microsoft was an Arminian company. The secrets out.

Outrageously funny, thanks.

I couldn't have come up with better (or even as good) captions myself!

Especially liked the first one—his grandparents were both Christians, by the way, but of course it's a secret. I don't know if they were supralapsarian or infralapsarian.

The Benedict and Gates ones were amusing, too.

I mean his father's parents. Don't know about his mother's parents.

As one whose head has been permanently damaged from banging it against the wall due to Microsoft product use, I found the Bill Gates caption priceless!

That's some big cabbage! Exhilarating!

Anya said...

That is one of the best, most concise descriptions of how well Armineanism works that I have ever read! Priceless! :)

I have reviewed the MacWorld keynote over and over and I still can't see where Steve Jobs talks about that. I have searched that Mac rumors sites too and this is a subject that they are strangely silent on.

I also don't think that Vista runs very smoo... OH I GET IT!
