Here is another comparison. This time it is between the purpose driven pastor and the date-setting end times fanatic pastor. Take Harold Camping, for instance. I think it’s safe to say that only a handful of folks didn’t think he was crazy. If Camping came to speak to any congregation of believers, chances are they would run him out of town. And certainly these teachers are pretty crazy. They employ allegorical interpretations to come to their conclusions, and abandon the historical grammatical method. Now consider the purpose driven pastor. He or she also employs allegorical interpretation to come to their conclusions too. The thing is, they are not viewed to be as crazy or dangerous as many of the end times teachers. This weeks cartoon seeks to compare the two, and highlight the fact that they really aren’t that different.
