Worst Sermon Series Ever!

January 14, 2011

I wish I was making this up…

Beginning next weekend, North Point is starting a new series called “Whoopee Cushion Life”. Among the seriously bad sermon titles

  • “Pull My Finger”
  • “Silent but Deadly”
  • “Blame it on the other guy in the elevator”
  • “He who smelt it dealt it”

I found this at Dangerous Minds and they state it well enough:

Northpoint Church in Springfield, MO is mashing up the good word with… fart jokes. I can’t think of… well, really anything lamer than a Christian fart joke. Can you? It stretches the definition of lame until it snaps back and hurts you, and then throws up in its own mouth.

Nevertheless Pastor Tommy will be delivering several sermons in the coming weeks with the theme “Whoopee Cushion Life” and I’ll bet his congregation simply can’t wait! …

Christian fart jokes. What a shitty idea. Who would be dumb enough to consider such a series of sermons worth attending? (“Maybe I’ll learn me a lil’ sumpthin’! And there’ll be plenty of fart jokes in case all th’t Jeebus talk gets boring!”). WHY would this seem enticing to anyone???

    What’s next, somebody preaching about people who “pisseth against the wall?” Oh wait…

    I can’t help but wonder if the pastor was influenced by a rather immature Youth Pastor. This looks like something that would fly in a Youth Group for Junior High Students. I can’t imagine people actually enjoying this in an adult church service.

      This looks like something that would fly in a Youth Group for Junior High Students.

      Like dripping melted chocolate into a disposable diaper and inviting the youth group to partake?

    Is it even legal to put Barney Fife, Ralph Kramden, and Steve Erkel in the same compilation?

    That might fly at a Christian summer camp for kids.

    I wonder if they’re going to install a Nickelodeon-style sliming apparatus above the pulpit.

    everyone who attends the sermons at that church will be forced to sit in their own pew.

    If I tried to pull a stunt like that in my church, they’d rip out the back two rows of pews and make a gibbet to hang me on.

    Don’t be that hard on them. Churches are losing traction and want to hold against it. When you try to port fairy tales to “modern times” it hardly ever works. And churches are not known to have any mentionable sense of humor on top of that.

    I wonder what popular song their ‘worship’ band will play to introduce the sermon series (“Highway to Hell” was used to introduce a previous sermon series).

      “Phantom Windbreaker” from Dr Demento.
