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.
Great Sermon! This was very interesting. However I would like to hear the source of all the statistics that were used, and see what populations that source gathered their statistics from. Also to know more about the mentorship program that was mentioned. The guy talked so fast that I got asthma just listening to him.
Great sadness. This is unbelievable! This is perhaps the most sad news I ever heard about the state of the Church of Christ. May God have mercy on the Church in China, to bring her to repentance and for a stand for God's will!
Well..... Raising kids un a broken home is not God's intended design. God can and does save adults and children from broken homes. I am one of them. If you stop and notice. Most people do not attend church or a biblically sound church. Married or not. Children are being raised apart from an exposure and awareness of God in their homes. Our own president does not attend church as his predecessors did. Not saying they were all true believers, but this did at the very least speak to our country that they believed in God and He is to be acknowledged. Christians
need to glorify God and advance His kingdom in their marriages not just stay married to be married. I am not saying get divorced I am saying we need to protect our marriages and nurture them. I came from a broken home and have done well by God's grace. The gospel was preached to me in my teens and I heard the gospel weekly at church. Its the gospel, not an intact family. I was not saved until much later, but the gospel did have an impact as well as a mother set consistant boundaries in the home. She worked outside the home since I was 2. She came home every night, was not carrying on with men, not abusing alcohol, not on drugs, monitored TV, did not let us spend the night at peoples homes. This is what's missing in br
Hope For You, Cheryl... Cheryl, you are at a tremendous advantage with your youth. It may be hard for you to imagine this, but youth doesn't last. It's a brief season of life. The concerns raised in your comment indicate that you really do desire marriage and family, so I would encourage you to make pursuit of that your priority and not let the actions of some men discourage you from that. You do not want to end up in your 30s or beyond still single and trapped as a corporate slave. I wish you a blessed marriage and abudant fruitfulness in childbearing! :)
Great Sermon! Cheryl, don't feel bad: responsible men are still out there. There are even 20 something men with their original parents still married after 25 years or so. You just need to observe how he is around his parents. A problem is that there are fewer of them. Submission does NOT mean bossing her around, while he works 9 hours a day and then plays videogames the rest of the time. He needs to interact with the children as well.
For me, i'm just a little tired about how young ladies are being treated or treating themselves.
Great Sermon! Thank you for your sermon Kevin.
As a 23 year old woman, I just wanted to explain the "Fear" of submission to women. I have to say this isn't a woman's fault totally when she says she wants to back off from family life. The reason why I say this is because how many mothers ended up single because the man didn't take responsibility? How many stories and lifestyles did you see that the wife had 80% of the work shoved on her while the husband just works and does nothing when he comes back home? Its not that women want to have more freedom because she can get a extra Starbucks coffee and head to the spa every week. Its because woman is fearfully scared of a irresponsible man. She'll turn into a slave with regrets having children if she gets with a man who has authority but no responsibility. And how many times I heard from a man's mouth that he just wants the body of a woman and no kids involved in his life is totally off the charts. How many male friends and even random strangers I hear just say they don't like kids, but want a girlfriend. Man is scary to me when he acts like he can do whatever he wants to a woman but takes no responsibility for his actions. You can see why some women don't want a family. There are too many pigheaded selfish men out there who aren't godly at all
Great Sermon! I believe there are many children today BUT THEY ARENT IN HOMES.. so, what could happen is that they will be BARBARIANS or something close. We are starting NOW with the heavily tattoing and piercing. I've just went to the doctor lately, and 80% of the female staff had an ugly tattoo somewhere on their arm
Great Sermon! When you select the Share icon it turns out the message that appears is not the one you are listening to at the time you select Share. I am currently listening to College is a Rip-off but is not the topic on the header of this comment or Share.
