Angel Named “Hugh” Appears at Lakeland Revival

From "My Beloved Made A Whip"

Last night at the historic revival of the great revivalist Todd Bentley, a 5-foot-tall male angel named Hugh Mility appeared and then disappeared, all in a matter of seconds. Evidently, as soon as Hugh arrived near the back of the stadium, the angel Emma kicked him out, saying, “We’ll never advance the kingdom with you around. When you appear, people start getting content, obedient, lowly, meek, and all nice to each other, and today’s the day of spiritual aggression and fervor...

Humility is a wonderful thing.

Satire is not very clever really.

If you are setting yourself up as a "discerner" you had better walk in more of the former.

Thank you. I will thoughtfully consider your advice since you must be very humble to post as anonymous.

Over on PYROMANIACS, "Johnny Dialectic" wrote "An insult is a slap in the face. Satire is a slap in the face for a reason, like when the sergeant slaps the guy in the foxhole who is going nuts, and the guy says, "Thanks, I needed that." An insult just wants to hurt a person. Satire is a wake up call. It gets at an issue, usually by indicated the absurdities of a certain position. It deals with consequences, and that's always a valid consideration in a debate."

So thank you, anonymous!... no, really, THANK YOU!

Some sarcasm from Paul:

1 Corinthians 4:7-8 - For who regards you as superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it? You are already filled, you have already become rich, you have become kings without us; and indeed, I wish that you had become kings so that we also might reign with you.

2 Corinthians 3:1 - Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, as some, letters of commendation to you or from you?

2 Corinthians 10:1 - Now I, Paul, myself urge you by the mekness and gentleness of Christ--I who am meek when face to face with you, but bold toward you when absent!

2 Corinthians 11:1 - I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness; but indeed you are bearing with me.

2 Corinthians 11:17-23 - What I am saying, I am not saying as the Lord would, but as in foolishness, in this confidence of boasting. Since many boast according to the flesh, I will boast also. For you, being so wise, tolerate the foolish gladly. For you tolerate it if anyone enslaves you, anyone devours you, anyone takes advantage of you, anyone exalts himself, anyone hits you in the face. To my shame I must say that we have been weak by comparison But in whatever respect anyone else is bold--I speak in foolishness--I am just as bold myself. Are they Hebrews? So am I Are they Israelites? So am I Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I. Are they servants of Christ?--I speak as if insane--I more so; in far more labors, in far more imprisonments, beaten times without number, often in danger of death.
