I have said this before, but after last week's sermon on debunking Camping's prediction of the Rapture (the mention of which actually does not exist in the Bible), I'm going to say it again: I have the coolest pastor in the universe. He's very tall, very smart, very funny, very weird (and I mean that in the best sense of the world), and a great teacher.

Pastor Jeff systematically debunked, both Biblically and in historical context, step by step, Camping's prediction of the "Rapture." My mind was freaking like it was in a brain-candy store! I love, love, love words; they're my favorite tools. And when words and phrases, like "rather than tear down one craps game in an alleyway, I want to take down Vegas"(speaking of the debunking to come in the sermon), and "prepare your heads to explode," were used, I just wanted to fly out of my pew seat and run in circles, screaming happily, like a sugar addict face to face with the biggest pile of brightly colored, chewy candy she has ever seen, only better, because the sermon *did* make my head explode! I love elegant, funny, smart explanations of things I never knew about!

The sermon was way too intelligent, and too well organized, for me to attempt to capture it in a blog post, but you can listen to it here if you like: "May 22, 2011 - "Everything You Need To Know (and More!) about the End of the World, Part 1:  What Not to Believe, and Where We Find Our Hope" - Daniel 9:25-27 - Jeffrey E. Bryan.

Be sure to listen to the comments before the sermon and look at the slides, and let me know if your head explodes, too, LOL!
