Christian lead for the big-time Christian Contemporary band, Jars of Clay has tweeted his support for "gay" marriage. Meantime, Amy Grant appears to be supporting the idea of "gay" weddings too. The squishification of evangelicalism continues. But what's the root problem here? Kevin Swanson digs into the epistemological framework and finds the dry-rot of post-modern relativism.
Informative broadcast Whilst listening to this broadcast that has zeroed in on homosexual acceptance amongst some so called Christians, especially from the CCM Christian Contemporary Music crowd, my thoughts kept on drifting to: â€śperhaps someone will put two and two together and realise that CCM is a non-starter for Christians and that it will serve of no use at all to our children and youthâ€ť.
For just over a decade I was involved in a very small way in the CCM scene, recording Christian musicians. My memories of those years (prior to the moment when my convictions before the Lord took me out of that scenario) were of recording some very prideful folk behaving like â€śprima-donnasâ€ť â€“ many being wannabes of their â€śChristianâ€ť pop heroes.
Just before that time and whilst at Bible School way back in 85, I was hearing the name Amy Grant mentioned and talked about in the classes and corridors more than our Lord Jesus Christ. So I was interested to hear how this broadcast gradually ended up on addressing CCM given Kevin Swansonâ€™s past experience in that realm. I would however, not have any qualms of throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
If one keeps on feeding CCM to our children and youth â€“ donâ€™t be surprised afterwards at the results, especially with regards to pride.

comment on lady's comments We have only ourselves to blame...not Ronald Reagan,not divorce, etc.Judgment begins in the house of God. The church dropped the ball a long time ago...which is not to say that there aren't many faithful Christians who serve Him. It helps when those things which we perceive as being more abominable "judge" us. Maybe then we can see more clearly to discern the events and people around us. We are made more aware of our own sins which we have not addressed.If we weren't desensitized to all of the hetero immorality among us, including the idol/celebrity worship which we engage in, things would not have proliferated to the point where they are . Hopefully, Christians will take stock of their walk with Christ, then we can thank Him for His long suffering and tender mercies toward us and rejoice...the church will become apostate...Redemption draws nigh!

Great Sermon! AS much as I hate to say it: the KJV only people have a point; they may be the only churches who wont buckle within. They are rarely post modern; and even now, some young men, in churches ARE GETTIN TATTED with their churches LOGO on them!--blame DIVORCE! IN CHRISTIAN HOMES!

Great Sermon! Right now, as we speak, 200 Nigerian girls were just KIDNAPPED and sold into slavery. Its been hidden because of the Sterling incident; and perhaps, it took WEEKS for the flight 370 was on the news--no one is saying NOTHING.

Great Sermon! Don't forget: it was WOMEN who went this way FIRST! Romans 1:16. Also, women being lesbian will lead to polygamy IF the MEN start going towards other men. This usually happens when the FAMILY has broken down. I happened to worked with many homosexuals, and they said, that DIVORCE could be, and was a reason this is happening... perhaps we could blame Ronald Reagan in 1968--with his no fault divorce.
Also, TANGLED is another one, with the woman leading the man. When men start becoming househusbands, you bet that women are becoming homosexuals. Homosexuality went from 3% or less to 10% OR MORE in the 21st century. I'm hoping the Christians, will change their mind similar to what WORLDVISION has done

a star is a star Perhaps the answer to the question can be found in examining the word "star". Celebrities or "stars" are essentially just that. We are all but dust,but it helps to keep in mind what the composition of dust consists of: not just dust but gas, as well...just a little aid to help us to focus on that which is worthy of our attention.
