Dispensationalism is the theology for Heavy Metal fans









Reformed theology, with its philosophical tendencies tends to appeal to intellectuals, Star Trek fans and people who mostly listen to Classical music.

In contrast, I think Dispensationalism is the theological system for Heavy Metal fans. With its ancient evil going back to pre-creation week ages, battles in heaven between good and bad angels, its expectation of an evil Satanic totalitarian system and a corrupt ecclesiastical system and its cataclysmic judgements, how can Dispensational theology possibly fail to appeal to Heavy Metal fans? Do not the long-haired monsters of Revelation chapter 9 belong on the cover of an Heavy Metal album if one interprets them literally?

I think Heavy Metal can provide an excellent soundtrack for reading books by Clarence Larkin.

Totally awesome, dude.

Matthew,
This is a side of you that I am not sure the blogosphere is ready for...

"totally awesome dude" (giggles)

I do see your point, though. ;~)

There is a degree of postmodern irony to this post.

Yes. Let's leave it at that.

This post rocks!! I love it. I still consider myself a dispy and of course I love heavy metal. But who knew the two systems (heavy metal and dispensationalism) were so compatible.

Honestly, you have inspired me. And if I get a story written, you'll get credit

Matt,

you have a knack for interesting observations

You can keep your Megadeth and Dispensational theology. I'll pass.

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Antonio and Pecheur, thanks.

Ryan, okay. I have not been a fan of Megadeth since I was a teenager. Their singer, Dave Mustaine is a Christian.

Antonio said...

I have seen megadeth in concert before. i never heard he was a Christian. How do you know?

Heavy Metal magazines.

A year ago Dave Mustaine got a Greek band called 'Rotting Christ' dropped from an event by threahtening to pull Megadeth out of it.

God Bless

Matt
