Of course you are Right the Church Should remain Holy but at the same time we want to bring the people from all the world into the church. There are so many ways to do that and for someone who was as a non believer a rock fan changing the lyrics can help them slowly make a transition. Of course I still stick to my previous comment. Anything and Everything can be used to praise the Lord.

When Cain and Abel brought sacrifices to God what did Cain bring? Vegetables and fruit. What did Abel bring? A lamb. Which one did God accept? Abel's, because God required a lamb and that's what Abel brought. That met God's standard's. Even though Cain was a good gardener God didn't want vegetables. It's the same thing with your talents. If you were yelling at the top of your lungs in the sanctuary would that meet God's standards for reverence and holiness, and glorify him? Would he want that to represent him?

It isn't one hundred percent that. It was the type of offering as well. Because it was a sin offering, both were required to bring lambs. However, if it were a harvest offering, or a thank offering, Cain's fruits would have been acceptable.

There is always a time for everything. Sometimes louder music is more appropriate than softer music, and vice versa. It doesn't mean that one type over the other should be denounced and called worldly.

Catch my drift?



Thank you
That is a very wise way to put it

I'm not sure if that's the right way to do it. Remember the early christians? Their faith was completely pure until they decided that it would be a good idea to implement pagan practices to draw the heathen to the faith. Look where that compromise got us- facing this whole Sunday law issue.and also, if someone is to be drawn to the church, it should be because they see Jesus in us, not the world. We are called to be a peculiar people ( 1 Peter 2:9) who stand firm on the Word of God,not compromisers who let any and everything/one into the church because that's what we want to do.


Make sense?

if you read screen smart that guy was a generalizationist using old church horror stories to scare a modern age its not really the music but the lyrics (so If you hate Christian rap in church why are ya listening to cuss words put to a beat and/or verbal softcore porn outside of church on your radio)
cuz liberalism is a mental disease and video games are awesome

so now I just happen to listen to Christian reggae and I find it no less reverent than hymns.

I'm Sure you could take classic rock and make it godly so either your saying

a) only hymns can be used in church no drums no cymbals just a piano and an organ

b)I have a personal dislike of rock music and just dont wannna hear it

c) im just quoting my parents who quoted their parents who hated classic rockers like Elvis Presley for theit ability to draw crowds as if by magic, something the church couldn't do (and you wonder why) and therefore said they were satanically hypnotic

d) I have no experience with Christian versions of other genres and im answering based on what I know and am told

answer truthfully not trying to offend anyone here
cuz liberalism is a mental disease and video games are awesome

Kwesi, if you want to leave, then leave. If you want to stay, then stay. But the creepy stuff going on recently have been creeping us out. Pick one and do it.
