You have got to be kidding me.
A few weeks ago I pointed out how pastor Brad Cooper asked his congregation if they frickin’ believed the Word of God (frickin’ being just a different spelling of the f-word.)
This evening I clicked on a Twitter picture from Cooper of people receiving Christ at NewSpring’s Easter service. Very good, no problem. Then I clicked on another of his photos and found this.
The caption says Fuse Factory looking bamf! (FYI, the Fuse Factory is the church’s newly completed youth “worship” center.)
I didn’t know what bamf meant until this evening, and my Internet filter did its very best to block me from finding out, so vile is the meaning. If you’re brave and not near anyone who could fire you from your job, check out the meaning here, though I really suggest that you don’t. Take my word, this makes frickin’ look positively genteel.
Come on, people. Why aren’t alarm bells going off all over Anderson?
If you go to NewSpring, I won’t ask how you can support this (though if you do, I’d love to hear from you), but I would like to know you can stand by when this is happening? How do you go to a church that keeps on doing this (as if once weren’t enough)? Do trash-talking pastors mean more to you than God’s holiness?
Either BCoop knew what bamf meant, which is unthinkable, or he used it without knowing what it meant, which is unthinkably stupid.
Much of what NewSpring does is debatable, meaning that you could make an argument to defend its beliefs and practices.
This? This isn’t debatable; this is unbelievable.
And on Easter Sunday. Way to go.
Update: It’s not the first time. Apparently worship at NewSpring is bamf too.
