For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, "Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord." - 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me." - Romans 15:1-3

But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose.
If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable,
and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. - 1 Corinthians 12:18-25

I'm not an expert on or immune to logical fallacies, but I sense one or more in some of the arguments posted here

see https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

or

https://answersingenesis.org/logic/logical-fallacies-series/

Wasn't it the Lord who said, "I desire mercy, not sacrifice"?

Many of the harsh comments on SA remind me of the attitude of the Pharisees. Little or no love. Little or no grace. No mercy....

James was right (3:3-11)...

With it (the tongue/our words) we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. James 3:9

"CCM garbage"
I suppose you are referring to Christian Contemporary Music and you have listened to every single song's lyrics to make such a blanket statement? Some songs are definitely worthy of criticism due to worldliness or bad theology. However, valid songs can be from the heart, detailing emotions that the Lord evokes in us toward Him for the great love that He has toward us. Those words are spirit-filled and not bound by any legalistic requirement of a cold, dead religion.

Galatians 4:6
Galatians 5:22-23
Romans 8:26
Romans 14

e.g. lyrics from a CCM song

"I put all my hope in the truth of Your promise
And I steady my heart on the ground of Your goodness
When I'm bowed down with sorrow I will lift up Your name
And the foxes in the vineyard will not steal my joy

Because You are good to me, good to me "

Be pro-Life, yes. But remember there is only one message that saves. Acts 4:12

Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols. So he reasoned in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the marketplace every day with those who happened to be there. Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers also conversed with him. And some said, "What does this babbler wish to say?" Others said, "He seems to be a preacher of foreign divinities"-because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. - Acts 17:16-18

And I said, 'Lord, they themselves know that in one synagogue after another I imprisoned and beat those who believed in you.
And when the blood of Stephen your witness was being shed, I myself was standing by and approving and watching over the garments of those who killed him.' - Acts 22:19-20

...

I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. - 1 Timothy 1:12-14

And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. - 2 Timothy 2:24-26

I don't know Brother Paul personally, but I often tell people it was through his preaching that I was brought from death to life or at least given a blazing fire for Jesus. Praying for him and his family.

James of CA, read the following which was message right after yours. I think WFP backed up my soruce, and yes, I'm always happy to see something that is even tangentially connected to what I said. So if you ignore the theology, of this outfit, See, http://tinyurl.com/jdm9dkn (Calvary Chapel Movement--Biblical Doctrine or Charismatic & Ecumenical?) and don't give any money to them, I would suppose that's okay. In fact a lot of music that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir may be find for Christians, though I certainly won't recommend Mormonism.
Quoting from an article from 14 years ago? Why not talk with someone from CC? I think you will find that they love the same Jesus you love. So, they do things a little differently or differ on some finer point and you automatically question their faith? I used to be like that. I'm still in recovery by God's grace. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. Romans 14 is a good place to hang out for a while.

Chris, one has to wonder if Chuck Smith and his followers are actually Christian when they practice such things as this?
--http://tinyurl.com/jnhjspk ( Chuck Smith-- General Teachings/Activities)
I don't agree with everything that Chuck Smith or any man teaches. I don't have it all figured out either.
However, I've listened to many of his sermons on the radio and I have been blessed and comforted tremendously by them. His closing prayers are tender and filled with love to motivate me to walk by the Spirit in love, living for Jesus. I was blessed by his "Grace Changes Everything" and "Love - the more excellent way" books. I felt a weight being lifted off of me through reading the "Grace" book. It is so easy to criticize and judge. That is our default nature. My goal and prayer is that I walk more in Love for His Glory, speaking the truth in love with humility. Peace.

When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. - 1 Peter 2:23

Actually, it is when 2 or 3 are gathered in Jesus' name.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them." - Matthew 18:20

"What kind of God do we have in America? What is the god of the politician in America? It’s this kind of god––it’s a god you can pray to, but you cannot define who he is. It’s a god you can talk about in a political speech, but you cannot define what his will is. And that’s a good god to have. Why? Because you’re no longer accountable to a god like that. You don’t know who he is and you don’t know what he wants, so you just do whatever your carnal, wicked heart wants to do. That’s a very convenient god, and that’s the kind of god some supposed Christians have." -Paul Washer

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. - 1 Cor 15:12-19

Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers also conversed with him. And some said, "What does this babbler wish to say?" Others said, "He seems to be a preacher of foreign divinities"-because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection. - Acts 17:18

but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, - 1 Cor 1:23

His birth matters, yes, but most of the focus in the Word seems to be His death, burial, resurrection and return.

1. Paul was accused of being lawless or of encouraging sin. There is no way that they would accuse him of this if he was going around telling jewish believers that they were still under law.

2. Galatians 3:24. Paul was a Jew, thus when he says 'our', he means 'us Jews'. We assume here he is including Gentiles.

3. Galatians 3:24 sits between 3:23 and 3:25. What key words do you see?

23 Now before faith came, we were HELD CAPTIVE under the law, IMPRISONED UNTIL the coming faith would be revealed.
24 So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.
25 BUT NOW that faith has come, we are NO LONGER under a guardian

4. What sense does this make if we are under the Sabbath?

One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. - Romans 14:5

5. Read the epistles and notice the grounds of motiviation Paul uses to stir people to action. I don't see "keep the law". Instead, I see love as you were loved, forgive as you were forgiven, Walk by the Spirit.

6. Set the confessions aside and read the Bible as is. Derive your own understanding by the power of the Spirit.

The book "Christ is All: No Sanctification by the Law" opened my eyes to what these verses are actually saying without any glosses. If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away. - Hebrews 8:13

For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. - 1 Corinthians 9:19-21

Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain-if indeed it was in vain? Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith-just as Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness"? - Galatians 3:2-6

For sin will have

4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God.
5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God,
6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses' face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end,
8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory?
9 For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory.
10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it.
11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. - 2 Corinthians 3:4-11

Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. - Titus 3:1-3
