All Mr. Kidd should expect is room & board and a meal, not of his choosing. He is a gospel huckster. Is he related to Captain Kidd, the pirate, or Billy the Kid(d) , the outlaw?
Luke 10:4-9King James Version (KJV)
4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.
6 And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.
7 And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:
Wow, the Bible is way simpler than the contrivances of Phil Kidd. It amuses me how these charlatans claim to be biblical.
I can only imagine how disappointed Kidd and his ilk are going to be when, upon arriving at the pearly gates, discover they get no crowns and a small shack somewhere.
Matthew 6:1-6 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
1 “Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.
2 “So whenever you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be praised by others. Truly I tell you,THEY HAVE RECEIVED THEIR REWARD [emphasis mine]. 3 But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your alms may be done in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
5 “And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. 6 But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
What. An. Ass.
Dear Mr. Kidd,
I would be happy to comply with #3 if given the opportunity. I’ll bring Mrs. Kidd a pair of comfortable, sturdy, machine-washable “breeches” as a gift. I’ll also be glad to drive a get-away car for her. My car is not new or pretty, but it’s fast and reliable. And while I’m not a retarded fruit-cake, I WILL talk her ear off about topics like Christian liberty and the rights of the oppressed.
P. S. What do you “strain” about at the motel? Gnats? Or are you referring to something else? Perhaps next time you should ask for a large bottle of MiraLax or GoLytely. Perhaps some prunes and a good long walk from the airport to the motel would also be helpful to get things moving, if you know what I mean.
Why does the song “So What” by Pink come into my head as I read through this incipit list?
Wait on the visiting preacher hand and foot. Be a MAN and get a damn cab!
Hopefully this list will seriously winnow his future speaking engagements. I feel safe in saying any church that looks at this and still brings him in is enabling and thus guilty by association. This list leaves no doubt about his true [lack of] spiritual character.
Looks as though this tweet has been deleted. Too bad the sentiment is alive and well.
Fortunately, we have Darrell to thank for keeping us informed of such idiotic, selfish, un-xian nonsense.
This is pure groveling and ‘man worship’. Jesus was no ‘respecters of persons’, and neither should we (be). Also, just because someone “claims” to have been ‘called to preach’, does NOT mean that’s true. As a matter of fact, it seems to be an IFB ‘trend’ that males will eventually claim they were either 1) “called” to preach or 2) “called” to the mission field. I call bunk on the majority of those claims, as they’re (very) likely attributable to peer pressure or desire to conform to IFB culture.
