Phil Ryken mentioned that a fairly local church, The Oaks Fellowship in Red Oak, TX, preached a sermon series in August based on four books of the great theologian, Dr. Seuss. The series, entitled, “Theologgins for your Noggins”, explored the “spiritual” insights of four books: Horton Hatches the Egg, The Grinch who Stole Christmas, Oh the Places You’ll Go! and The Sneetches. Here was the description:
Lessons are most often learned when our imagination is engaged. Probably no one understood this better or had a more profound effect on generations of children than Dr. Seuss. Many of the more than 40 books he wrote have incredibly deep spiritual parallels. In this series we will rediscover four classic Dr. Seuss stories and learn the practical Biblical truths found in them.
In other news, Eric Redmond and John Piper have posted articles regarding people’s attempts to substitute Scripture with things that are less offensive and more entertaining, as if the Bible weren’t effective enough to penetrate hearts and change lives.
