A Halloween Book Burning: Only God's Word Will Survive
The Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, North Carolina is on the loose.
Here is what they got planned for Halloween.
In an effort to save you from the torture of reading this on their website via the link above, which is destined to get them into design hell, I reproduce their invitation (misspellings and all) for a night of God, barbecue and good ol' fashion biblioclasm.

Our Scriptural Bases For Burning
The Scriptural bases for what we are doing each year is found in Acts 19:18-20 "And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed."
Mother Theresa for Christ's sake!
I wonder how many people will be in the white robe with the pointy white hat costume.
