The Online Discernamentalist Mafia
… is 1 of 3 blogs by I. Todyaso or Iggy from WordofMouthMinistries
Iggy is on the leadership team at Billings Vineyard Church (Montana, United States). Iggy is also part of the Emergent Church and is bent on mocking born again Christians who adhere to the Word of God.
The subtitle of The Online Discernmentlist Mafia (ODM) is the following: “Protecting The Sovereign God and His Truth from those who are out to destroy the church. A SATIRE/PARODY blog.”
No surprises here really, because reducing the Bible and Jesus Christ into nothing more than a joke is what the false Christ/anti-Christ is all about. Iggy attacks many Discernment Ministries, I am not the only one.
This is the message on the front of the blog:
“Before you get all bent out of shape, please realize this is a satire site spoofing the so-called “discernment ministries” who deem themselves more worthy of Grace than the rest of us. So read and have fun! BTW, we are not against “good” discernment ministries that do actual real research and extend grace to others, only the bad ones.” …
Iggy and friends have had a go at many discernment ministries out there, like:
But at the end of the day we do need to say thank you to Iggy, because in his own vicious little way he helps expose himself and others.
These are the people that inspire Iggy as taken from his WordofMouthMinistries blog. I am not sure where Iggy receives most of his inspiration from to write with such hatred about the Word of God and born again Christians. It can’t be from everyone he has listed under the section ”People Who Inspire Me“ on his blog.
If you feel you don’t want to be an inspiration for Iggy in any way, please feel free to contact Iggy and ask him to remove you from his list on his WordofMouthMinistries blog. Then comment below and I will remove you from the list below or add a note next to your blog or website name.

~*~*~*~*~Ree RELATED POSTS below that I had written and the comments made by Emergents. All this started with my Article on Amahoro (a conference held in South Africa with Brian McLaren attending)
New article by Iggy – 7/06/2009 09:16:00 AM
How do you even respond to outright liars and… well… idiots?
I mean this as loving as I can… I mean she is what she is and I guess being a liar and… well… an idiot is fine with her… really it is sad someone claims Jesus and stoops to this worlds methods of trying to harm someone else… I introduce, Discerning the World…
But I do thank her for the free promotion… I am sure anyone that goes to her site will check my sites out and see that she is in fact an idiot. Can’t turn down free advertising. Now, I know someone is out there thinking, “iggy you are not being very Graceful toward Deborah…”Well I am… After all she is trashing all my friends… as to why? Only that she hates me for some reason.
Deborah, hate is not a Christian virtue…
Pray for her… she really needs it. Yes, that is what we do for idiots… pray for them.. and love them in spite of the damage they do to themselves and others.
On the 13th July or there abouts. Iggy was loving enough to help contributed in a very graceful manner to a wordpress blog that was set up by one of his friend. They called the blog url discerningtheworld(3).wordpress… my blog name at the was discerningtheworld(2).wordpress… and I was the original owner of discerningtheworld.worpdress.com that I deleted last year 2008.
The person who signed up this url (with contributions and ideas from ‘friends’) took the same grey theme I use, took my author name Discerning the World and my baby elephant avatar to try replicate my blog. The ultimate goal of this scheme was for them to have a playground where they could throw hateful insults at me non stop.
This is a snapshot and quote from discerningtheworld3.wordpress – This is what Emergent thinkers think, these are the types of thoughts that run through their minds:
Thanks for dropping by! This is Discerning the World III, a site dedicated to truth and discerning things online (indeed, the entire world) which cannot be detected, and will not be detected, face to face. Why the number 3? Well, number one is too arrogant and we are anything but that. And it came to our attention during an intense discernment period that the number 2 is not fitting for any blog that claims to be genuinely Christian. Two is a number that reminds us of the followers going 2 by 2 into the ark. We refuse to be thought of as just another ass following suit. If anything we are leading the charge in the war against truth!
Therefore we decided our name would be Discerning the World THREE. Three is, after all, biblical. Noah had 3 sons (Shem, Ham and Japheth), Joseph had a dream of three baskets, Aaron was eighty-THREE and he and Moses spoke with Pharaoh, total darkness covered Egypt for 3 days in one of the plagues, women are to wait 33 days to be purified from their bleeding before they touch anything sacred, Balaam’s donkey complained of being beaten 3 times, King Saul had 3 sons, Samson ‘performed’ in front of 3 thousand Philistines in his final act, Job had 3 daughters, Peter disowned Jesus 3 times and of course, the greatest reason we find the number 3 to be more biblical than the number 2 is because of the 3 greatest things. But to know that you have to turn to 1 Corinthians 13:13 (more 3s!).”
Anyhow, I have so far received many awards from the Discernamentalist Mafia – I must be doing something right.
