Today's Quote: Guess Away

This may well be too easy. But I'm really wanting to get rid of these TNIVs. I'll send one to the winner if it's one of the first five guesses.
If [any] of you heard me say something that you believed was injurious to the gospel, you would love me enough to tell me.

Easy? I disagree. My guess? JMac

Strike one.

Mark Dever?

What if I were to actually say it on my blog? and then just say it was I who said it? It would be true, then (both in content and that I'd said it), and I'd really like to relieve you of one of those TNIVs.

Ben said...

You are wrong, and you also violated a fundamental principle. You asked permission first. You would have had a better shot if you'd just done it.

Besides, I reserve the right to make up rules mid-game against such convoluted nonsense.

Charles H. Spurgeon?

Not to commit another fundamental violation by apologizing for a fundamental violation, but I will say I'm sorry anyway. Just this once. I am a fundamentalist, after all. (*sorry*)

That I'm a fundamentalist also means I must also add a disclaimer that will legitimate this unwitting trespass. Here is that qualifier, for the record: I really thought there was only one rule -- No Googling. If I'd only known that there were more rules, I would've delighted to know them comprehensively and break them selectively.

!!!

Ben said...

Spurgeon is likewise wrong.

Joy,

There is only one rule, but since I am likewise a fundamentalist, I reserve the right to make up more.

Rick Warren

I would say Billy Graham, but when has he ever cared.

Robert Schuller?

Ben said...

No, no, and no.

[sigh]

It's like you're disrespecting my prize by not trying.

This may help: Think about the medium.

Phil Johnson.
(the record-setting short-lived blogger)

Ben said...

No, not Phil, and not that medium.

Keith said...

Ted Haggard

Ben said...

Nope. More orthodox.

Ok, I'm making a new rule (maybe even a new game): Whoever finds your niftiest utterance this week gets a complimentary TNIV, even if she can't guess the quote above for the life of her.

I believe I have a winner for you, already!

It's gotta be
Joy McCarnan, with
BEN'S NIFTIEST UTTERANCE OF THE WEEK:
"So it comes down to a chicken vs. egg=gospel vs. culture question, right? I don't know whether the gospel is the chicken or the egg, but I'm convinced that it MUST come first."

Yeah? Yeah?

Ryan Martin said...

Al Mohler. You're sending me a Bible.

Ben said...

You win, but I ain't sending you diddley. After all, you had the inside track, having already heard the quote on the interview. I'm not going to reward you for your tardiness.

Rules are rules.

Ryan Martin said...

This is an outrage. Can I sue you?

Come on, I don't have a TNIV yet.

Ben said...

Sure you can sue, but we'll soon find out how seriously our churches take 1 Corinthians 6 and church discipline. Could get complicated with an inter-church squabble. Maybe a Doc will volunteer his services to sort things out.

Ryan Martin said...

Don't you understand? I have Christian liberty to reject the Bible's teachings if I want to.

Ben said...

Silly me. Of course you can. You'll have to excuse me. I'm not very postmodern.

al mohler always gets picked.
i was trying to spread the love.
so...ditto the "outrage."
for once, i agree with ryan martin. =}
