  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.

    Have You Seen This?

    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 behavior. This is the world's tactic, but it is God's way (although we do it through God's strength). The world (even though I don't trust any of the "facts" they throw around) says that this method works to change chemical levels in your brain. Duh it works! Yet people are still sitting around depressed and drugged because "doctors" have told them they cannot "help it." Sure, you can have drugs to feel a little better, but that doesn't fix the root of the issue: you choose to sin when you think negatively! You need to forgive people who have hurt you and trust God to be in control of your future. Anyone have anything to add? This is a big subject that needs to be dealt with in our churches! We deal with it in RU all the time. SN: please if you are going to get emotional and rude, pray before you respond. I know it will touch a lot of nerves for people who have family/ friends who are diagnosed as having a mental disorder. Before you judge, understand I lost my Dad and almost lost both of my sisters because doctors said they have depression.
  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:

    Free Online Radio

    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 when paper gets used, it deteriorates. Not only that, but as the copies were being made, the old ones were burned, which is why we don't have any really old TR manuscripts. I am saying all of this to say that the early church used the TR (where the KJV came from) and copied it for centuries, while they didn't trust the CT (where the NIV etc comes from). I trust the KJV because I know it doesn't have some denominational agenda and because the Lord promised His word would be available to ALL generations. How can it be available if we just found it in a monastery? Please excuse my wordiness. I get defensive about my Bible ;)
  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 listening to something like "Amazing Grace My Chains are Gone" they will automatically assume you would listen to Chris Tomlin? We will loose my generation if we do not stand true.
  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 was saved (I'm sure he just asked because I was wearing a skirt...). I think we as Christians are too afraid and unsaved people see it. Secondly, I am disappointed in the lack of tracts I recieved! I was in a community with MANY good IFB churches and I was never handed a single tract. I knew some of the people that ordered food were from good churches! We only have one life time to touch these people's lives! I'm so glad I'm saved, because if I was not, I know none of the Christians that came through my restaurant cared enough about my soul.
  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.
