Our Youth Group, who constitute approxmately 79% of my friends on this entire planet - are now in Knoxville, Tenn. for CHIC2K3, our church's triennial High Schooler Shindig. It'll be hard having so many good friends away for A WHOLE WEEK! (gasp!), but I think I'll survive. Also, God will be moving through CHIC2k3 and I'm confident lives will be changed for the better. Thats what Our Lord does....change lives for the better...for His better. Amen to that!

Also neckties are bad for you. I've known that for years! Everybody knows once you start wearing neckties you eventually evolve into some business-man creature......or a pastor.

The Answer is - 34 rhubarb pies and one cup of coffee.

I can think of anything to say today - so try this on for size. A train is leaving Omaha, Nebraska at 65 miles per hour, heading west. At the exact same time, a train is leaving Voorspark, South Africa at 25km per hour. Also at the same time, a politician is lying about his private life and a stupid TV show is being created on the FOX network. How long until the trains collide in Turlock, CA? You have ten minutes to answer this question. No talking or using calculators. Begin now.

I think this website needs a purpose. Something to give it form and flavor. Personally, I prefer jelly form and grape flavor, but I have been told, personally, that I am also quite insane.

It's pretty stupid to have a entire website devoted only to me, mostly because I'm just ''me'' and nobody else is ''me'' so why should anybody care? That's the problem with the whole internet, I think. It's way to ego-centric. If only Al Gore knew what he was doing when he invented this thing.....

Anyway, I think it would be cool to have a website devoted to you, the viewer. I think The Karl Show! should be a kind of internet variety show with interviews, articles and junk - about you folks, Christianity, trivia, humor, etc, but not me. Whadda'ya say?

......may I present to you the latest, greatest blog ever created? No? I can't? Well too bad. Its Dan's Hole in the Wall!!! Dan is the youth pastor at my church, and my friend. He's going to be out of town for a while, but you can enjoy his recent postings in the meantime. Have Fun!

PS - Yes, thats me who went to the Village People concert. And yes, I did have fun.

On the advice of my spiritual counselor (Dr. Brad, DivPhd), I decided to get a public email address so all of you heretics out there could email me nasty comments. Thusly, I approached with a simple request: give me, please.
And this is what said to me in return:

The Yahoo! ID thekarlshow is not available. Please choose another Yahoo! ID.
Someone has already chosen that Email Name. Please choose another email name, be imaginative, try adding a number to the end of the name that you might remember.


You mean that there is another The Karl Show! running around somewhere out there!?!

Yes, Virginia, there really is another Karl Show. Personally, I am shocked and saddened. Just imagine if your name was, perhaps, Simeon Finklegruber Dunlap III - and one day you tried to get an email account at yahoo or hotmail, but you discovered that '''' was already taken. So naturally you had to settle for '' You would be pissed off, I bet. You would also have a funny name, too.

So anyway, you all can reach me at - get this -

Yesterday I was thinking: "Maybe I should put a comments section at the bottom of every post?" Then today I was reading some other people's blogs and I thought: "Maybe I shouldn't." So I wont. There.

But by all means, feel free to visit Dr. Boydston's website and leave all the comments you like.

Also pray for the folks in our congregation who got robbed. They will be going through a difficult healing process for a while, and they need all the prayers they can get.

Where should we begin?

I like Christianity Today's article about bringing back heresy trials (really). although heresy trials have been used in the past for inappropriate reasons, so have secular courts. and thats no reason to completely abolish all secular courts, is it? My only concern is that there is so much corruption in the Body of Christ, or rather, so many masquerading as the Body of Christ, that we would be too busy hauling people before jurists to do anything else.

Personally, I think the first canidate for trial would be Davey from Davey and Goliath. I mean, really, he talks to his dog. Obviously evidence of demonic possession.

Myrtle Leaf, Rejoice In Peace

Today was the memorial service for Myrtle Leaf, a member of our local congregation. She was well into her 90s and still "sharp as a tack". I know she will be missed by her family, but only for a little while. We will all see her again - and ''what a day of rejoicing that will be!". No rejoicing because we can see her, mind you, but because we will see Christ. He was (and now is forever) the center of her life, and her greatest love. Thanks, Myrtle.

It's actually not "Mr." Brad Boydston, it's Dr.Brad Boydston. He holds a doctorate in Underwater Sermon Preperation from Atlantis Theological Seminary (Reformed).
My pastor, Mr. Brad Boydston, has linked to my blog. I am frightened by all the degenerates and sociopaths that his link will no doubt attract. Stay away from my house, all you.....people you! Especially Anglicans. No CofE need apply. Thank you.
Its 2:09 am and right now, somewhere in the world, someone is getting an email offering him a lifetime supply of Herbal Viagra. Just think about that next time you look up at a starry sky, or stare wistfully into a sunset.
