Just In Time For The Conventions, Ditty Number Three

The official Ablaze! Firefighter is back in action!

With the districts meeting I thought I put together my third ditty ( two in one week! see this post for Monday's ditty) in honor of the elected leaders and representatives trying to set themselves Ablaze! On the way to a birthday party over the past weekend, I asked my four year old godson "Christopher, is it ok to play with fire?" You know, it's amazing, a four year old knew that fire is not something to play with. Christopher knows that being ablaze is bad and so should those we elect and appoint. I can only guess which failed business model thought it would be a good idea to call evil good and good evil. These folks should be put in charge of the new "come visit Hades, enjoy our fires" marketing campaign. Really!

Anyways, with my sincere apologies to all who enjoy Johnny Cash, here's my Ablaze! version of the Ring of Fire


The Albaze! Bonfire by Frank Gillespie

Confessions, they’re a pesky thing
Getting in the way, of the message we bring
Putting warm bodies, in the pew
Believer or unbeliever, what’s it matter to you?

I bought into the Ablaze! bonfire
I knocked on the doors and passed out the fliers
I logged onto the website and got those numbers higher
The Ablaze! bonfire
The Ablaze! bonfire

And I’ll burn, burn, burn,
The Ablaze! bonfire
The Ablaze! bonfire

Missions, are the most important thing
Missions, make the enthusiast sing!
Doing, God’s work for Him
Quantity not quality, probably ain’t a sin


I bought into the Ablaze! bonfire
I knocked on the doors and passed out the fliers
I logged onto the website and got those numbers higher
The Ablaze! bonfire
The Ablaze! bonfire

And we’ll all burn, burn, burn,
The Ablaze! quagmire
The Ablaze! quagmire

And we’ll all burn, burn, burn
For by this “movement”
Heaven we’re bound to win!

And we’ll all burn, burn, burn
For by this “movement”
Heaven we’re bound to win!

Love the ditties. I've written a few of my own over the years; never knew anyone else shared this hobby.

You may have done this in the past but could you please post your reasons for being so hostel agianst Ablaze! Do you have theological issues and can you back them up with scripture and the lutheran confessions. I hear so much negative talk but no one to my knowledge has ever backed it up with scripture.

I am just a Lutheran tired of all the negative talk in our synod. We have the right theology and we have been sent to proclaim Christ. Lets share that.

B,
Yes I will be more than happy to oblige! I do though, have a time problem because of training that I had to attend as well as my wife's birthday present that will take me to Alaska for a couple of weeks.

If I didn't think Scripture and the confessions spoke to the issue, I would be a hypocrite to voice my opinion the way I do. (this is one of the reasons I use my real name)

I have a lengthy Sunday school lesson to prepare for this weekend, after that I will address your concerns in a stand alone post.

Please feel free to email me if you think of specific questions. I've answered emails before in posts, but only with the senders permission. Is that fair?
