    • Things I hate in a worship song
      By ethrayn · Posted
        Yes, I agree that some of the hymns express the melancholy of the song writers, and they were a source of comfort growing up in the Lutheran chapel at my school.  Martin Luther was a good example of the types of hymn writers you mention in your post:   http://tinyurl.com/oyzrtex: He battled life-long depression. “His whole life was a struggle against [it], a fight for faith. This is the point at which he interests us so acutely, for we too are cast down and we too would know how to assuage our despondency.”     His work saved his life. Luther nearly killed himself in the cloister; his anxious and ascetic life as a monk (bolstered by his depression) made it almost impossible for him to exist. He was constantly afraid that God would smite him for his unconfessed sins. Thus he spent day after day on an inward search for sins to confess. Dr. Staupitz wisely knew the cure—Luther needed work, and a lot of it.   Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation in Germany (Slide 7): As a young monk Luther was obsessed with atoning for his sins and went through vast lengths to punish himself.  This ranged from extreme self denial and physical and mental tests to self flagellation. One such punishment consisted of lying in the snow, through the night at the height of winter until he would have to be carried back inside.     Could you give some examples of these sorts of songs—both the repetitious sorts and the more secular?  I remember when secular Christian music (in my childhood) mainly meant a musician was trying to earn fame by getting their songs played on popular radio, such as Amy Grant.  This was always a bad sign for me (a form of “selling out” for a Christian band, in my opinion).  
    • Who has 'another Jesus'; a false Jesus ? a powerless gospel...
      By Qnts2 · Posted
      Billy Graham preaches the gospel. The same one in scripture. It is not a false gospel. Thousands of people have been saved listening to Graham. The fault of Billy Graham is that he thinks some are saved who are not saved, and some do not need to hear the gospel. I know he sends Jewish people back to listen to the Rabbis, and he sends Catholics back to listen to their priest according to you. That is an error. But that error is not teaching a false gospel. Billy Graham teaches the gospel of salvation to all others, and very effectively.  When Billy Graham stands before Jesus, Jesus will show him his errors. When we stand before Jesus, we will also be shown our errors. I believe we will be standing in the same line as Billy Graham, but Billy will have more crowns.

    • Experience it!
      By George · Posted
      The testing of Abraham's faith was repeated by YHVH throughout the patriarch's entire life. The tests grew greater as his life advanced, and through every one, whether Abraham passed or not, YHVH proved Himself to be his friend over and over again. Every test or "trial" involved a serious challenge or threat in which Abraham had to trust that the LORD knew what He was doing, asking, or requiring, and that His goodness and faithfulness were unquestionably reliable.

    • The things in the Bible ain't necessarily so.....
      By Deborah_ · Posted
      Perhaps a better title would have been, "The things we think are in the Bible ain't necessarily so". IF the story of Jonah is in fact non-historical, it isn't the Bible that's wrong but our interpretation of it.
    • OBAMA’S PENTAGON DECLARES JOURNALISTS TO BE ‘UNPRIVILEGED BELLIGERENTS’ WITH NO RIGHTS

      When I think of this and how it can be necessary at times, I think of when Gerald Rivera gave away battle plans and troop movements on the air.
    • Renaming Mt.McKinley
      By OneLight · Posted
      Denali is the mountains original name, so I'm all for it being changed back.  You can better honor a man by following in his footsteps, not naming a mountain after him. As for what better use of time could of been established, the list goes on and on ... not just for Obama, but all of us.  We already know he is the worst president the US has had, and his "change" is not what people were looking for.  Let's spend our time electing someone who will make the right changes instead of beating a dead horse.
    • The things in the Bible ain't necessarily so.....
      By shiloh357 · Posted
      The title of this thread is, "The Things in the Bible Ain't Necessarily So..."    So where does the fault-finding in the Bible stop??   If the Bible is wrong about Jonah, what else does the Bible say that "ain't necessarily so..."?    What is there in the life of Jesus that "ain't necessarily so?"    Maybe the death and resurrection in the Bible are not really true?   Would we take it that far?   And why wouldn't we?   if the Bible can't be trusted in one area, why trust it elsewhere?
