Theological Bru-Ha-Ha

by James L. Sauer

Once upon a time there was a church. It was a church that believed in the doctrines of Bru-ha-ha, and it wasn’t afraid to admit it. Melvin Digby Bru-ha-ha, as I’m sure you will recall, was a famed Bible expositer from some time back who discovered certain essential Bible truths. He organized these truths in his now famous treatise: Systematic Bru-ha-haism: A Biblical Theology.

Now as time went by, other Bible expositers discovered other truths from Scripture; and they organized their thoughts as well: R. J. Pumpernickle, Dogmatic Pumpernicklism; D. D. Muchado, Biblical Muchadoism; and L. M. Obscure, Theological Obscurantism. And of course there were more writers than these, wherein, I suppose, if we were to write them all down they would fill a good-sized seminary library.
