Jeremy is O.B. with R.C.

RC Sproul Jr conference, Wha?It's safe to assume that if it involves RC Sproul Jr and the Highlands Study Center it's bound to get a little kooky.

RC Jr is also the kind of guy (even if he is defrocked) that's just bound to attract an interesting following.

Some of America's not so best and brightest have imbibed of RC Sproul Jr's Highlands Study Center.

Take for example Jeremy Bunch. In response to our article "Student" Describes Highlands Study Center Jeremy posted not just one but two additional articles.

Here's Jeremy's first response:

RC Sproul Jr alcohol booze wiskeyIn form, in RCJr form, RCJr has taken my comments on the Highlands Study Center and used them for his own personal gain. Geez, what a guy.

Fortunately, as you can read on his blog, the CREC has cleared his name, one of the largest scandals in American Reformed Presbyterian history in the last couple of years. One of many, this scandal has not surprisingly boiled to the top.

Nonetheless, you can drink of his wine here.

Welcome to the CREC, RCJr, a denom that will accept dippers and non-dippers alike.

So Jeremy has RC Jr started dipping again? We'd heard that after many years of dipping smokeless tobacco products that he'd sworn off the Skoal. Has RC gone back to chewing and spittin'?

But Jeremy's commentary doesn't just end there though.

Here's Jeremy's second response:

Highlands Study Center RC Sproul Jr

If you read my last post and didn't get it, don't fret. I'm rather inexperienced when it comes to the use of sarcasm, spin, and satire. The Spinmeister Dr. Sproul Jr. has considerable more talent in these areas than me, and in light of "current events" in American Reformed Presbyterianism, DrRCJr has his own particular spin on things. This blog is linked to the right - Spinderella Sproul. You know, Sproul as in "owl".

(Sorry, the "b" isn't working on my keyboard.)

For those who wonder about the extensive use of alcohol, tobaccy, and who knows what all else at the HSC, I implore you to not worry about such wonders. Those at the HSC have simply succeeded at making the consumption of such things "spiritual disciplines."

Ah yes, I remember the short amount of days spent among those of St. Peter. The fact is I remember them. Sorry, but nope, no blacking out.

I did mention at an earlier time that I would share more on my experiences at the HSC, and now I am reminded of that.

I remember the first evening upon arrival at the Windham home. Conversation started up on the topic of education, not surprisingly, for that is what I wanted to study while there. Joshua Blackburn was there in the living room with Laurence, and his wife Angela. As the conversation continued with smiles and nodding heads, Joshua looked at Laurence and said with a nod, "He's o.b."

This scared me at first. My first and intentionally last experience with those initials happened when I was around eight years old. Watching television, a tampon commercial came on the air, the brandname - O.B. I turned to the babysitter and asked her what o.b. stood for. She blushed and giggled, and I blushed and shut up.

Joshua used the initials to stand for "on board."

Oh, we don't "wonder" at all Jeremy. We're well past the point of "wonder" about anything that happens at Saint Peter Presbyterian Church and Highlands Study Center. It comes as absolutely no surprise to hear you confirm that "extensive use of alcohol, tobaccy" is "spiritual discipline" in the RC Sproul Jr / Laurance Windham lexicon.

Glad to hear that you were able to handle the "discipline" all right and that you didn't black out. What you perhaps didn't know is that "extensive use of alcohol" while not blacking out is a test of your spiritual maturity, er, discipline. It's also a test of being O.B. with R.C. (and Laurence).

Hey R.C. 2.0, smoking and drinking isn't just "spiritual discipline" it's also "spiritual warfare." Here's what St. Peter member Matt Clement says:

"Every Saturday evening, my Pastor and I, along with our respective households and guests celebrate a Sabbath Feast. When I cook, he takes care of the toasts, when he cooks I take care of them. When the toasts are my responsibility, I always make it a point to remind everyone present that they are not sitting and feasting in order to prepare to fight evil, but that we are fighting evil in the very act of feast. Feasts are not mere "fun in the sun" -- feasts are warfare, as is joy and laughter; this is why we feast with our brethren before God."

Maybe that's how we'll stop legalized abortion and the Illuminati.

All this time...all we needed was some beer and cigarettes. Who knew?
