“Sin actually burn holes in the dendrites of our brains”???

 

Stacy Harp is at a convention that is about the persecution that Christians have suffered and are suffering.  I won’t deny that some of them are suffering for their beliefs.  No one should be persecuted for what they believe.  No one–and that includes non-Christians as well.  But this post isn’t about that. I noticed that the last speaker at this conference was Tom White.  This is what was posted on the Persecution.com blog:

National Conference: Dr. Tom White

Dr. Tom White was the final speaker at the VOM National Mission Conference. He shared how the negative thoughts and emotions brought on by sin actually burn holes in the dendrites of our brains, but how the grace of God can literally make a mind whole again.

"The helmet of salvation can protect your brain from the black holes…That’s what Jesus can do. He can brain-wash you. He can get rid of the methyl chemicals."

"We can affirm that Jesus does save."

I am assuming this is tongue-in-cheek?  Or does this guy really believe that the dendrites in the brain are damaged by sin?  Does Jesus get rid of the ‘methyl chemicals’? 

Without being there, I can’t tell.  I really hope that this was said jokingly with lots of laughs.  Otherwise…

    I cannot begin to tell you how hard I laughed when I read this.  Like you I do hope this guy was joking because if not I really fear this person being in any position of power to influence others.  Hate to say it but these people like this are just plain scary.  I thought this was the year 2008 not 1460.
