gonna make an anti-burger account called “Cursed Burger Nonsense” where all I post are soggy microwave burgers that aren’t made out of real beef to show how bad burgers are. I will intentionally leave out thick juicy real-beef burgers made on the grill on a beautiful sunny day.
if anyone says to me “you’re not showing real burgers! Those are microwaved frozen food burgers that aren’t even made from real meat!” I’ll simply respond by saying that the existence of burgers in the first place gave way to this type of thing, so you can’t make excuses tbh.
I’ll find a disgusting microwavable veggie burger & attribute it to Gordon Ramsay. It will be fantastic. I’ll ignore any historical development that led to the creation of soggy microwavable “burgers” & simply point to this as stemming from the existence of burgers themselves.
yeah I compared Protestantism with burgers

“We know that wherever there is a divine promise, there faith is required, and that these two are so necessary to each other that neither can be effective apart from the other. For it is not possible to believe unless there is a promise, and the promise is not established
unless it is believed. But where these two meet, they give a real and most certain efficacy to the sacraments. Hence, to seek the efficacy of the sacrament apart from the promise and apart from the faith is to labor in vain and to find condemnation. Thus Christ says: ‘He who
believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned’ (Mark 16:16). He shows us in this word that faith is such a necessary part of the sacrament that it can save even without the sacrament, and for this reason he did not add: ‘He who does not

really insightful quote from Martin Luther on faith & baptism:
“The difference, then, between the legal symbols [Old Covenant vestments, vessels, foods, houses, etc.] and the new and old signs [sacraments] is that the legal symbols do not have attached to them any word of promise
requiring faith. Hence they are not signs of justification, for they are not sacraments of the faith that alone justifies, but only sacraments of works. Their whole power and nature consisted in works, not in faith. Whoever performed then fulfilled them, even if he did it
without faith. But our signs or sacraments, as well as those of the fathers, have attached to them a word of promise which requires faith, and they cannot be fulfilled by any other work. Hence they are signs or sacraments of justification, for they are sacraments of

John Calvin’s Baptismal prayer for children:

“O Lord God, eternal and omnipotent Father, since it hath pleased thee of thy infinite mercy to promise us that thou wilt be our God, and the
God of our children, we pray that it may please thee to confirm this grace in the child before thee, born of parents whom thou hast called into thy Church; and as it is offered and consecrated to thee by us, do thou deign to receive it under thy holy protection, declaring
thyself to be its God and Saviour, by forgiving it the original sin of which all the race of Adam are guilty, and thereafter sanctifying it by thy Spirit, in order that when it shall arrive at the years of discretion it may recognise and adore thee as its only God, glorifying

This is literally a religion. They have their icons, their sacred space, their Christ-figure who sacrificed himself, their clergy (BIPOC), their laity (white ppl), their mark of membership (mask), and the surrendering of one’s identity to focus on the sacred.

Lord have mercy.
they even pray to their Christ-figure, thanking him for his sacrifice. I’m not reading things into this. This is a pattern. All man is religious
“Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among

“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those
who were to believe in him for eternal life. To the King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.”
1 Timothy 1:15-17
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

Listening to a podcast that Michael Horton is on and he just made a fantastic point that ties many low church evangelicals and Roman Catholics together:

Roman Catholics have a low view of baptism.

Let me explain how this connects with evangelicalism 🧵
In his response to the Council of Trent, Calvin claims that Rome has completely obliterated baptism. Calvin states that Rome has a very low view of baptism and this is why they had to invent the fake sacrament of penance. For Rome, baptism wasn't enough to wash away our sins for
the whole Christian life. Those in the Roman tradition go to penance for continued justification rather than resting in their baptism and what is promised there in. Baptism is sufficient for all our sins, not simply those committed prior to our baptism.
