Babylon Bee: Luther Echo

I love the fact that the 500th anniversary of the Reformation (which we talked about here, for starters), has brought Martin Luther to prominence, along with his acerbic wit. Not everything the Babylon Bee puts out is funny, but when they nail it, they nail it.

Luther 500 photos

We have talked about our "Luther 500" trip to Germany, as well as some of the events and exhibits we attended, but we haven't posted many of our own pictures. Here are a few pictures from various Reformation sites, inside and outside of churches. .

Japanese Heavy Metal About Christian History

We have posted a number of music crowd-funding campaigns here, but it's hard to think of one that has more "Dorkness to Light" elements than this one. The Imari Tones are a Japanese heavy metal band raising money to fund a CD release of their latest album, "Jesus Wind." This is a concept album about the history of Christianity in Japan. Loud music, church history, and an international perspective? That's what we are all about.

The YouTube video for their Indiegogo campaign can be found here:

And then for the first time in a long time, they cover listener feedback, most of which is pretty awesome.

Babylon Bee: The Introvert Service

I can't be the only one who thinks this would qualify as "Heaven on earth," right? Not everything the Babylon Bee puts out funny, but when they nail it, they nail it.

Osteen vs. Luther

Adam4d is a Christian humor website that is occasionally quite funny, even if we aren't always on the exact same page theologically. But the site hit a home run with this, a series of actual Joel Osteen tweets, followed by actual Martin Luther qoutes.

In addition to having a grasp on the theology of grace, Luther also had quite the way with words.

Unfolding the Wiedmann Bible

We mentioned recently the artistic achievement that is The Wiedmann Bible. Expaining the unfolding aspects of the mile-ling work is one thing, but seeing it unfolded is another. In this video, the complete Wiedmann Bible is unfolded for the first time.
