Perhaps the Ultimate Pirate Video

It’s got everything: crappy music, worse dancing, puppets, pirates, Christian rap. Words cannot describe it.

Update, Sep. 12, 2006: Favorite comment: “Can’t sleep, the puppets will eat me.

Update, Sep. 13, 2006: Another good comment: “Okay America, we gave you religious freedom, and you do THIS with it […] Watching this, some would say the terrorists have already won. But NO ONE WINS with this video.”

    Becky:

    Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages for sin is death”. The punishment for our sins is physical and spiritual death.

    It seems to me that everyone dies, whether they’re good or bad, sinners or not. I understand that according to the Bible, only three people have ever been sinless: Jesus Christ, and Adam and Eve (pre-fruit).

    Jesus, also according to the Bible, died on a cross. Adam died after a few centuries. I don’t think the Bible explicitly says that Eve died, though it implies that she died no later than the flood. In any case, Genesis 3:22 says that Adam was never immortal, no matter what people like Ken Ham may say.

    In short, it’s not that “the wages of sin is death”, but rather, “everyone dies”.

    This is the penalty that Jesus paid – his death on the cross paid for my sins.

    How exactly does this work? If I robbed your house, could I later find someone who commit suicide or was killed, and say that by dying, he paid the penalty for me, so I shouldn’t go to prison?

    At any rate, if Jesus wanted to erase a debt that you owe him, why can’t he just do so? I’ve forgiven a number of debts, some quite substantial, and I’ve never had to die to do so.

    [Josh McDowell] decided that he would use the information in the Bible and find an error.

    You mean, an error like saying that bats are birds (Lev. 11:13-19) or that grasshoppers have four legs (Lev. 11:20-22)?

    Or do you mean big errors like the earth being flat, or that there was once a worldwide flood?

    I look at it this way – when I die, if I’m wrong and the Bible is a myth, I’ve lost nothing. I’ve lived a happy life, and my faith in God has filled me with peace and joy throughout my life. On the other hand, if you’re wrong, and the Bible is true and Jesus really did die to pay for your sin, then you’ll have lost everything.

    Look at it this way – when you die, if you’re wrong and the Koran is a myth, you’ve lost nothing. You’ve lived a happy life, and your faith in Allah has filled you with peace and joy throughout your life. On the other hand, if the Koran is true, and Mohammed (peace be unto him) really brought the word of Allah, then you’ll have lost everything.

    Look at it this way – when you die, if the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn’t exist, you’ve lost nothing. But if he does, and you haven’t followed his rules, then you won’t get to spend eternity in heaven with the beer volcano and the stripper factory.

    Sorry, but Pascal’s wager is a crap argument.

    I don’t think this will make a difference to those who have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior but it might clarify some things for those who have. Every one has sinned except for Jesus. The verse that says, “The wages of sin is death” is talking about spiritual death. There is another verse that says, “It is appointed to man once to die and after that the judgement.” All of us die physically, some of us die spiritually. We will be judged by God for our lives and how we lived. A good judgement results in life with the presence of God. A bad judgement means torment away from the presence of God. Even the best of us, excluding Jesus himself, are not worthy to receive a good judgement because we are all guilty of sin. Sin means missing the mark. We don’t measure up to the high standards needed to receive a good judgement. Jesus was the only one able to do that. But he was crucified as a criminal on a cross which was the form of punishment under the Roman rule of the time. After he physically died he spiritually died. Spiritual death means seperation from God. Our sins took him away from God, not his own. He took on the burden of our punishment by taking responsibility for our sins. Now here is the important part. Jesus rose again from physical and spiritual death and ascended to be with his Father, God, in heaven. The thing we have to do is decide whether or not we will accept all of this as truth or not. If we accept this as truth then a love for Jesus and what he has done for us develops. We also end up being saved from a bad judgement because when God looks at our record of sin He sees that Jesus has already paid the penalty. We chose to believe so we receive. If we reject this and say it is all a lie then we have no payment made for us because we rejected the hope that we had in Jesus. We chose not to believe so we do not receive. That’s it in a basic nutshell. There is a whole lot more questions I am sure both those who have accepted what Jesus has done for us and those who have not, will have but the main thing is to accept or not. Not accepting is rejecting. By the way I didn’t make up the rules. They are in the Bible. God made them.

    The video says that Captain Hook is a “hero of kids and a parents friend”. And it has the Captain preaching the gospel!

    I always thought Captain Hook was the villain.

    Wow,
    I just read alot of “self-righteous unbelievers” attack Christians for trying to communicate faith on a level easily comprehended by children….. did I say children?
    Isn’t it kind of funny that in most comments, the whole purpose has been ignored so aggresive unbelievers can attack Christians?
    Just imagine if some local event held by an atheist group were videoed and then published to the world on the internet obviously without consent for the purpose of the atheistic view being attacked by Christians.
    Honey, this is America!
    And that means we all have the right to express our message to whomever we are able to communicate it to.
    The desire for respect of belief, or unbelief is a two-way street.
    I find my Atheist friends to be good people who desire the very same things my Christian friends desire:
    Fulfilling lives, personal success, opportunity to help others, and the freedom to believe what you wish!
