Parody Of The NCFIC Hermeneutic

The NCFIC just put out a notice for a conference call. I thought it would be helpful to illustrate the absurdity of this hermeneutic by writing a parody:

Greetings NCAMDFD friends,
You are invited to a conference call to discuss what is happening from the enormous response to our movie. We have received many emails, calls, and letters with questions and prayer requests. But for many, the journey of reformation in honoring father and mother has just begun!
This reformation has, at its heart, the doctrine of the sufficiency of scripture. Since there is nothing more important on planet earth than the honoring our mother and father [as God commands it], our movie is focused on the manner in which we honor our father and mother in the church and the home. Our proposition is that while the Bible gives many details regarding how we should honor our father and mother, the modern church has ignored them and chosen other methods – mans inventions, namely, mother’s day and father’s day. The root cause of dishonoring parents is the same one causes all other departures – a rejection of the sufficiency of scripture, which is nothing less than the sufficiency of Christ.
This conference call will take place this coming up Monday 15, 2011 at 8:00 Eastern time. During this conference call you will be hearing from Scott Brown (Director for The NCAMDFD) along with three pastors from around country tell their stories and answer critical questions from personal experience.
These men have a wealth of experience to share with those who find themselves at the crossroads of the traditions of men and obedience to scripture.
Joining us will be:

Left to Right: Craig Houston Pastor of Westside Baptist church in Bremerton, Washington, Paul Thomson Pastor of Eastside Baptist Church in Twin Falls, Idaho, Matt Hudson Elder at Basswood Church in Knoxville, Tennessee.
A difficult task
What these men dared to do was not easy. But, with much prayer, teaching, and faithfulness these pastors have made significant strides in dismantling various worldly practices in their churches!
The opportunity
This is an opportunity to encourage and challenge your pastors and church leaders to join us on this call.
We are looking forward to laboring with you in turning the hearts of the people in our churches back to the sufficiency of scripture. Please consider joining us on this call. We pray that God would encourage and strengthen the body of Christ through these efforts.
To participate in the call, please call the number below and enter the code at 8:00 PM (EST).

There comes a point in time where hermeneutics get so absurd, that parodies such as this one can be easily written. Such is what happens when you confuse the sufficiency of scripture with regards to that which is binding on the heart of a Christian with the idea that scripture must spell out its significance in every single scenario; it results in utter absurdity.

    exactly.

    Here is a summary of some typical arguments defending the new family integrated movie, Divided, and why they fall short of their intended goal.
