And Another Thing…

The stupidest thing I have heard this week

“Free pizza and dilly bars? [The Apostle] Paul spoke of this in weeping. This is certianly not following his example!”

If you want to know where this little gem came from, click here.

And I am offering a no-prize to whoever can find Paul’s condemnation of pizza and dilly bars in the New Testament.

    I am allergic to chocolate.
    I haven’t had a dilly bar in years.
    😦

    Since I have posted this a number of area ministers have rightly hammered the good brother who started this hullabaloo in the first place, but this guy keeps hammering back and is isolating himself and his tiny clan even more. So sad to see people who abuse scripture so badly.

  3. mattdabbs says:

    Here goes…because this elder/brother has a problem with dilly bars and pizza and believes it to be sinful, Paul would feel it better not to try to bring in dilly bars and pizza to the congregation he attends to keep him from stumbling. Is that a stretch?

    Preach – Your allergy is unfortunate, but if the brother I quoted is to be believed, it is saving you from a serious temptation.

    Dave – It is terribly sad. I wonder if the brother in question will ever catch on?

    Matt – Wow! That is some innovative hermeneutics on your part. I’m going to wait on the no-prize, but you can certainly consider yourself the front runner at this point.

    Odgie,

    You must be using the NKJV if you can’t find that one. Dilly is actually a translitteration of the Greek dilios. Dilly-dallying is also viewed as a negative.

    You just didn’t get your money’s worth from PBI. 😉

  6. preacherman says:

    Yes, it is saving me from a evil temptation. But, whenever we go to DQ the boys have to have one. It is a must! Thank goodness we don’t have a DQ in town.

    But, dude, guess what the rich Christians at Corinth brought to their gatherings and were supposed to share? Yep, dilly bars.

  8. odgie says:

    Frank – We can’t be too certain. The Greek word often translated as “dilly” actually means “ice cream with nuts,” so it may be that Paul was speaking of another cold, creamy treat.

    I bet that guy has a huge youth group at his church, what with all the unleavened bread they can eat with that delicious grape juice! Maybe he can spare some of his loaves and fishes for his fellow congregations who have not yet seen the error of their culinary ways!

  10. odgie says:

    Kelly – I have a feeling that this guy doesn’t believe in youth groups.

  11. Kelly says:

    Right, ’cause God don’t need no young folks, what with their driving and walking and chewing gum!

  12. Adam G. says:

    I have no idea what a dilly bar is, though I assume from what I’m reading it involves chocolate. I’m sorry the fellow quoted seems to view the Christian faith as a funeral. I gather he sees the offer of snacks and fun as frivolous.

  13. Odgie says:

    Adam,

    Yeah, i’ve always thought this type of cat treats the faith as a cosmic game of “Simon Says” with God warming up a lightning bolt for anyone who doesn’t get it 100% right.

    A ‘dilly bar’ is a Dairy Queen treat, something like an eskimo pie. I thought everybody had Dairy Queens on every corner.
