BTW, just ran into Brad Hicks.

Seems to have taken Christ very literally.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

He has a sequence about that scripture (four posts or so) at his blog.

Much of what he writes seems to be parody,* and he has a problem with resentment, but that quote from the gospels has always been dear to me along with James.

*At least that is how I read his neopagan posting. If he is serious about bringing back ritual castration, year kings and the like, I'm staying far, far away.

BTW, he needs to do something like this:

Now that is a hero.
