That's right! "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and "Grandma God Run Over By a Reindeer" are not Christ honouring or edifying.



When My mother passed away, my niece wanted the funeral director to play "Grandma got run over by a reindeer"! I made sure that it didn't happen!

Wow, but you ought to look at the CD's and such that's been left behind at the funeral home that were used in funeral services, I think even you would be surprised, I surely was when I did so sometime back. They had a BIG box by their CD player, it contained song books, CD's, tapes, along with sheet music. Excuse me, I was not really surprise, it was more like shocked out of my mind.

I had never thought about that, after looking through them I asked the man who managed the funeral home, "You mean they are people that play such music as this at their loved ones funeral?" His answer was, yes, "It gets pretty bad at time, even sickening at the songs they will have."

That is terrible. These people will have a memorial to their loved ones and play the rap music they liked, or made of their own. Their favorite song, the one they danced to a lot.. whatever. That is why I tend to not like these memorials they have for people, like the ones you see they have on the news a lot? They really turn in to a concert/celebration party.

I am seriously only recently out of the worldly music thing. My eyes have been opened SO much to the things of this world. I just tells myself "Turn your eyes upon Jesus... and the things of this world will grow strangely dim..." I admit I still catch myself turning from the only local Christian radio station to my old country station because the Christian station tends to play more contemporary versions (breathy, too upbeat) of great hymns. Then I will start listening to the music and the beer references, partying, eye-balling women... and I think "Wow, I loved that song 2 months ago, now I hate it! But it was good! But it's not!" lol it's a weird debate in my head and then I just have to turn it off and switch to my iPod. I think DH still listens to some of his music but I have to let him deal with that on his own. We are both aware of the evils of the music and as I have learned to rid it slowly from my life, so he will have to do the same. Some things in the stores I don't think of and other things I do. I guess it depends on if my ear catches it or if I'm just not paying any attention. I caught my 2 1/2 yr old dancing to some oldies that were playing from the Juke Box at Long John Silvers. I was so embarrassed. She sometimes dances to her little cartoon show songs but definitely should not be dancing to "Devil With The Blue Dress" O_O

I was thinking today, sometimes we can get bored, that seems the time we get enticed to do that which we should not.

Jas 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.


I was thinking, one way to solve that is to go visit someone, invite them to church, and or learn to present the plan of salvation, one might have the opportunity to use it. Or throw together a few sandwiches along with a bag of chips and invited some church friends over, read a few verses, say a few prayers, talk about Christian stuff.

I know its double tough for those whose spouse pulls them the other way.

I couldn't imagine having a spouse that did not support my faith and follow me to church and in worshiping the Lord. This woman I go to church with is such a wonderful Godly woman who is able to raise her children right and in a good Christian home but her husband will not follow her to church. From what I see on the outside he allows her to have that control and even supports her sending them to the Christian Academy through the church. Any husband or wife that can lead a good Christian life with a spouse that does not follow them has a wonderful strength. I commend them for it, it's a situation I have never known.

DH used to listen to something always a little more extreme than me back when we listened to whatever we felt like. Here as of lately he has talked to me more about the Christian stations and Christian music. He enjoys it as I do but I would still get in the car sometimes and find that one CD in the CD player and my heart would sink a little and I'd say a prayer. When we are together we listen to Christian music or recorded sermons from church so I don't know everything that goes on in the car when he's alone. The blessing in this is that I know he is shying away from listening to the old stuff more than he was. Especially this week because he went to training and had to drive a cruiser that only has a tape deck and I have the tape deck adapter for my iPod so he can't hook up his phone to it and use that mp3 player :P But last week he did say "I need to plug my phone in to the computer and clean up my music selection." The Lord may be answering my prayer if he intends to clean off the filth and add more Christian music to his selection.

That would be just a little awkward. Where is the respect these days?


Respect is a word little understood today and typically only thought of in self-centered terms; such as "I demand respect!". This generally means they demand others let them do as they please and stay out of their way. Of course they have no real respect for others.

Some people visited out church recently and their teen son sat between them and us. Throughout the sermon he was constantly pulling his cell phone out of his pocket and texting.

I've seen many younger folks (20s and under) at funerals rolling their eyes, making noise and showing no respect at all.

While it's another of those "not in the Bible, Bible-sounding quotes", this is rather true, "idle hands are the devils tools". When we get bored we are more likely to give in to the temptation to listen to music we shouldn't or watch that wicked TV show or do something we ought not to just to keep from being bored.

It's important to have a plan already in place for such times. Have a good Christian book ready to read, good Christian music right there to play, a good Christian DVD to watch, a Christian friend to call or visit, a list of things going on in or with the church handy, a list of things that need done, people that need visiting, etc.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
