Darren Wilson -- Jumping the Shark, Beating it Unconscious and Burying it Alive

By       (Page 2 of 3 pages)   No comments

We see however what this elaborate set up has been about. Now that he has erroneously established that God values the creative Wilson wields this false fact like a cudgel against his sworn enemy -- the church. Beloved this is the crux of what is going on here. When Darren Wilson speaks about creativity, he means being extra-biblical. He wants to teach that his parents received gold fillings but he knows there is zero support for that in the Bible. That is how we know the gold fillings, if true, were not from God. This is what it means to test everything. What is our measuring stick for all testing? Scripture. Not for Darren Wilson though because Scripture puts him right out of business and exposes him for the snake oil salesman he is. So he needs a foil and the church serves him well in that role. People who demand biblical proof are deemed "religious" and in need of a deeper spiritual revelation. They are labeled dangerous because they refuse to think creatively beyond the safe confines of Scripture. He continues:

"It is easy to bash churches as not valuing creativity or the creatives in their midst, but I think that is often unfair criticism. Honestly, most pastors and leaders I have met don't dislike or mistrust creatives; they simply don't understand them. It's like me trying to understand what makes my accountant tick. No amount of cajoling will ever get me to a place of thinking that numbers and math are fun. But some people actually enjoy that stuff! That being said, a church that denies the creative spirit of God in many ways is rendering itself incompatible with God, at least in one aspect." -- Darren Wilson

Wilson tries to further develop this false teaching by now claiming that if you refuse to think outside the biblical box then you are incompatible with God! Remember that is the title of this article he has written. Now that he has jumped the shark and beaten it into unconsciousness, he seeks to bury it alive. Remember the trail of incoherent thought that has led to what he was seeking to accomplish:

1. Because the fifth word in the Bible is "created" God first reveals creativity about His character.

2. This must mean He values creativity highly in everything, including His church.

3. Any church that denies these completely fabricated points is now deemed incompatible with God.

Of course the initial premise is patently stupid and not how one does biblical interpretation. I might add here that Wilson is confusing our carnal definition of creativity, such as being a film director, with the literal act of creation. They are not actually the same thing. Now with his ridiculous foundation spelled out, Wilson moves in for the kill:

"My dad once pointed out that if the church is not pursuing creativity, it is doomed to religion. It is therefore no surprise that the most religious, unbending Christians (and leaders) are typically the least creative. Creative people see the possibilities in things, value risk and are always trying to find new ways of doing things. Religion strives hard to limit things, hates risk and prefers to do things the way they've always been done." -- Darren Wilson
