So a few weeks ago Leah and I were excited over the fact that more than 500 people had viewed our video on Youtube… now more than 13 thousand people have viewed it. I’m pretty sure that I could show up to nearly any seminary and be immediately recognized as the guy with the Calvinist wife. Maybe I’m a bit overconfident, but it seems to be getting that way.
So my wife and I definitely lean towards reformed theology in our limited understanding thereof. However, when writing the song, we meant it completely lightheartedly. It wasn’t meant to be taken seriously… I’ve been to many of the blogs and read many of the commenters who seem to understand this:
“TOTALLY” awesome! Obviously your wife is “UNCONDITIONAL” in her love! Though “LIMITED” in its audience appeal, the video is “IRRESISTIBLE” to those for whom it is intended. Keep on “PERSEVERING” in your song writing!
HA – that’s wet your pants funny! …could add a line “I Think My Wifes a Reformed Baptist, about to get Booted from the SBC”
thanks for posting this 🙂
This is priceless! I almost spewed a full mouthful of coffee onto my comp at the line “she likes Spurgeon more than me”! LOL
i love it.
can you really get a John Piper tattoo??? please? mostly just for my entertainment, of course 🙂
A Methodist youth group came in my store as soon as this video was over. I spoke in tongues to them, and they all got saved.
The previous commenters seem to understand. Some of them are Calvinists. Some of them are not. But they all thought it was funny. But, there are always those who think they need to point out everything that was wrong with the song:
Hahaha… that’s SOoooo funny. I laughed and laughed and laughed. The only Greek to that sentence though would be “ego” and it’s redundant
Ok, I prefer the ESV but I also like NLT. Found that in Beth Moore Bible Studies it just isn’t deep enough theologically while others talk about how deep it is. I prefer Erickson’s systematic theology not Grudems. That doesn’t make me a Calvinist.
I’m actually a Calvinist and I cringed at the John Piper reference. He’s great but he’s becoming nearly a pope for 5-pointers so its sad but true.
so funny because its so true!!!! well, except for the tattoo, maybe a fake one??
In Islam, we take predestination to the next logical step: strict fatalism. Perhaps good Calvinists can learn from The Prophet Mohammed, PBUH (peace be upon him).
Its a joke, peeps… accept that and laugh at it or leave it alone… I do appreciate the internet fame that I have gained because of this song…
But, I have a few thoughts about our next hit single… I’m heading back to northern Manitoba at the end of this week and then I have a pastor’s conference at the beginning of next week, so at the end of next week, start looking for our next hit single, “The Best Life… NOW.”
