Mirthful Monday: Lark News – King James Translation Device Brings Faithful To TV Age


Our position here at El Rancho Reformado South (“ERRS”) is that the King James translation of the bible is a valid, worthwhile translationMirthful Mondays Return....Eddie Eddings Rides Again!! to be used amongst the people of God by those who wish to do so. Our bone of contention is with those who maintain it is the only valid English translation of the bible and that all others are evil, blasphemous, etc. It is in this spirit that this post is written.

This is an excerpt from a post at Lark News:

At the home of Neil and Sarah Parks, KJV-only proponents, Parks and his son Brian, the youngest of nine children, snuggle up to watch television equipped with the KJV Box. Neil flips through channels, notices that the Fox Network and other channels are eerily silent (the word “untranslatable” flashes on the screen), then comes to rest at the Food Channel where Emeril Lagasse counsels viewers to “grind thy pods, thy diverse herbs, and thy oil in the selfsame pot, until thy pottage hast come to fine consistency.” Before a commercial, Emeril points at the camera and the Box translates his words as, “Fix thyself to thy place! When I return, I give thee my bond we shall elevate the cooking to a higher plane, as from glory to glory!”

Mirthful Monday: The Reformation Polka – With Hyperlinks To Definitions Of Terms Used

mirthful monday

Yes, we have posted this in years past, but this being Reformation Week, it’s worth a repost.  Although, having grown up in a city that was heavily Polish to the point the local radio station used to play hours of polka music each Saturday morning, I’m not seeing a whole lot of polka dancing happening in the video – Frankie Yankovic would have been stunned.

We have also linked to definitions of words/terms/names used in the song – to Roman Catholic sources when possible, to avoid accusations of biased non-Roman Catholic definitions; but this, naturally, leaves the door open for biased Roman Catholic definitions.  You make up your own mind.

When I was just ein junger Mann I studied canon law;
While Erfurt was a challenge, it was just to please my Pa.
Then came the storm, the lightning struck, I called upon Saint Anne,
I shaved my head, I took my vows, an Augustinian! Oh…

Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let’s start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!

When Tetzel came near Wittenberg, St. Peter’s profits soared,
I wrote a little notice for the All Saints’ Bull’tin board:
“You cannot purchase merits, for we’re justified by grace!
Here’s 95 more reasons, Brother Tetzel, in your face!” Oh…


They loved my tracts, adored my wit, all were exempleror;
The Pope, however, hauled me up before the Emperor.
“Are these your books? Do you recant?” King Charles did demand,
“I will not change my Diet, Sir, God help me here I stand!” Oh…


Duke Frederick took the Wise approach, responding to my words,
By knighting “George” as hostage in the Kingdom of the Birds.
Use Brother Martin’s model if the languages you seek,
Stay locked inside a castle with your Hebrew and your Greek! Oh…


Let’s raise our steins and Concord Books while gathered in this place,
And spread the word that ‘catholic‘ is spelled with lower case;
The Word remains unfettered when the Spirit gets a chance,
So come on, Katy, drop your lute, and join us in our dance! Oh…


Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!
