Kevin,
Funny as it is, it is definitely Protestant theology.

It IS Protestant theology, I agree. But clever.

The Ironic Catholic said...

A theological exposition of substitutionary atonement above all else with no sense of sanctification, to be more precise.

Ooh, using those big words felt good.

IC do you have to go take a nap now after using all those big words outside of a classroom.

I know I would have to take a nap.

Catholic Audio said...

As I've heard it said, IC, "There will be no bumper stickers in heaving reading 'I'm not perfect, just forgiven'."

Agreed -- there's no sense of sanctification in this at all.

Funny, nonetheless.

Ironic,

I thought the video was funny. However, it was your "big words" comment that had me laughing out loud!

Funny, Intrepid Mom--my students don't laugh.

The video was funny - "But it balances out, right?" "I only bought it for the articles!"

How do you do that tag cloud thing on your blog?

The Ironic Catholic said...

Suburban--the tag cloud is the work of tagging posts through Del.icio.us. Sign up with them and you'll see how it works.

It was not necessary for "sanctification" to be shown (in the sense of conversion to lots of saintly behavior) ... but it WAS necessary for sincere repentance to have been demonstrated. Neither one was present, so it was heretical.

That was my reading, too.

If the two gatekeepers were Sts. Andrew and Peter, that would be bad enough. If they are meant to be the Father and Holy Spirit, that is really bad. Actually, didn't the Father hand the role of Judge to the Son (the theology behind the Pantocrator)?

Also, this really does look like Heaven is a big clubhouse.

When I first saw it I did think it was very clever, but after thinking about it I decided that I really don't like it after all.

Cute!

It's produced by a suburban megachurch in Las Vegas, so I doubt that the theological symbolism is that subtle.

What's this about St. Andrew? In Catholic theology, does he play a role in the last judgment?
