Ridiculous Christian Websites

“It is not good to have zeal without knowledge,” as Proverbs 19:2 tells us (NIV 1984).

There are Christian websites that have not benefited from this advice. Two of my favorite examples are below.

1. This website, which purports to expose C. S. Lewis as a heretic, is cearly motivated by a zeal for good, solid theology; they may even have solid theology, of a conservative, Protestant, evangelical sort. But that’s the best I can say for it; this site doesn’t have a clue about Lewis.

From this website we can learn not only that “It is not good to have zeal without knowledge.” It is also not good to have a zeal for orthodoxy without also having love. (I hope I have done better myself.) It also helps to have a modicum of good scholarship.

2. The unforgettable DemonBuster.com is surely the best of the best when it comes to ridiculous Christian websites. I think it should speak for itself, so I will say no more, except this: You may want to turn down the volume on your computer after a minute or so; the music gets old fast (if you’ve been before, try going again; now there are words to the music!).

Of course, no website is perfect. Perhaps, from time to time, and to paraphrase Algernon Moncreiff, we here at TTC have been very ridiculous in our own small way. One should never take oneself too seriously. Speaking of C. S. Lewis, I think he said that before I did.

Update: Apparently DemonBuster.com no longer plays its music on a loop. It’s safe to leave your volume up.

Skip DemonBuster.com. If you want to know about demons, this book will be more useful.
