  1. I have noticed that so called IFBC's are using watered down contemporary music. You may not have the drums, or electric guitars; but the music is toned down so the piano can be used.

    In my opinion; this is supporting the CCM movement.

     

  2. Sorry I left and didn't come back to this post for awhile. Did the links show up for people?
  3. I saw a post that went side tracked into a long discussion about mental disorders, so I thought I would start one here so we can collaborate resources/ (christian) scientific studies. I do not believe in a disorder named ADD. Why? I believe our diets are a problem, lack of physical exercise, improper discipline from parents, etc. Another one to discuss: depression. According to psychologists, we cannot "help it" if we feel sad because of a chemical imbalance. Has anyone ever heard of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? Basically it is a big term that means changing your thoughts to change your behav
  4. I use a Thompson Chain reference Bible, love it! I also have an very old dictionary (1829 I think?) to help me understand :)
  5. In case you don't know, this is a song by CCM rock group Delirious? I don't understand why we are digging through the garbage of CCM in order to find music to sing. This is the first "real" CCM song Steve Pettit has put out and if they follow in the footsteps of WCBC, it only goes downhill from here. Here is the original:
  6. We just had a music teaching series in Sunday School, and the speaker talked about abiding radio. I love it, and thought I would share! abidingradio.com
  7. The problem is not so much with the versions, but the text from which the versions came. The KJV came from a text we call the TR, which has been available to the church for ages. The NIV and all almost all other modern versions came from the Critical text. The manuscripts to the CT were found in a monastery and the Vatican after being lost for many years. The reason people believe that the CT is more reliable is because they are older. Yes, they are older. Why? Because the church didn't think them trustworthy so they haven't been used! The old old manuscripts of the TR are lost yes, because wh
  8. But you have to realize, the teenagers do! I know people who justify listening to CCM because they heard the song sung by someone else (that person could have not even known where it came from, and sang it innocently!)
  9. If you do not know who the Getty's are, please look them up before posting. Have you noticed that the new Majesty hymnal contains music from the Gettys/Sovereign Grace? What is your opinion on that? I find it an outrage that they are digging through garbage to find good music. I think it is sad I can't just buy a CD from a trusted source without knowing if there is CCM behind the music. Why aren't pastors stepping up and writing the Hamiltons? Why aren't we fighting for our music? Why have we stopped caring about associations? Don't people understand as soon as a weaker Christian hears you li
  10. I agree! And the person sees that you are a real person who can have a conversation and not some weirdo
  11. One of my favourites is one that says, "ye must be born again" on the front with butterflies. The design is eye catching and the tract is smaller in size so it fits in a pocket without looking rumpled (another thing I hate.... rumpled tracts!) My boss (praise the Lord he claims he is saved) says the Sunday crowd is the worst (i.e. the people who come in after morning church for lunch) ugh. I feel embarrassed my coworkers relate me to them...
  12. I know there are certain types of pants that men wouldn't wear (or if they did they would look rather feminine...) for example, darkwash jeans with a wide leg and a broad hem. Is that not distinction enough?
  13. I don't believe pointing out error is wrong... I think the childish response from Irish had no point but to cut.
  14. After working in fast food for my first college year, I am disturbed at some Christians. This maybe for edification, or a slight rant about my upset. First of all, I am tired of "Christians" who behave horribly, have no control over their children and leave huge messes for me to clean up... and then leave a tract on their dirty table... and on the floor. My unsaved co-workers just comment on the lack of backbone the Christians had for not actually handing it to ANY of the workers, but littering the room with them. The only person that actually encouraged me was someone who just asked me if I
  15. Thats not only a Ruckmanite teaching. I'm talking stuff like re-inspiration, correcting the TR with the KJV and translating the Bible into other languages (like Spanish, etc) using the KJV instead of the TR.
