EPISODE - Me and a ventriloquist go to war with Cedarville
Prepare for battle, Pkarlgh! David Pendleton is on the
podcast again and he has a tale to tell. (I'm eating pizza
during the first few minutes of this broadcast so you might here
some mild chewing and swallowing.)
We start with a gentle criticism this beloved podcast. It's
fine. I can take it. Then we reminisce about the
last podcast where Dave and I engaged in mortal combat and tried to
kill each other because of Calvinism.
Then, Dave spends waaaay too much time apologizing for being
arrogant. (You know how we feel about arrogance, Pkarlgh.

As usual, controversy surrounds my pal Dave. There is just no
containing this man. His unbridled enthusiasm for the truth takes
him to the German Baptist Love Feast (which isn't as kinky as it

Then we get into Dave's newest story. He sent Cedarville
University into upheaval. I'm surprised you haven't heard about it,
Pkarlgh. It was such a spectacular display of sinister
shenanigans...sit down and prepare to be SHOCKED!
After his shocking revelation, David admits that he's
remorseful. He attempts to receive absolution for his sins and
receives forgiveness...but not really.
So the question of the hour is: "What does it mean to be
forgiven?" Does forgiveness wipe the slate clean? Or do
we still have to pay for sins for which we have been

Pendleton thinks it'll be okay if a GB decides to wash his
feet. He doesn't think the other folks will react negatively. I
think he's wrong. But what do I know... I tell him my
favorite quote I heard from an elder at my church.
We discuss whether or not it's appropriate to pray that God
changes someone's mind. Then we get into a fist fight about it and
Dave throws me through a window.
Since grade school, I've been inspired by George Washington
Carver. I'll tell you why.
