Over the the last couple of days I received these comments regarding my article Love Relentless – Sky Fall of Stars, where I suggested the failure of these modern mega-churches to make any separation from the world in terms of musical style, and that the latest music styles are used for ‘worship’.
Young Josh Bernard’s comments raise some interesting points;
“To go with the comment above would you care if you found out Satan was behind your articles. How is this anything but hate? Just because you don’t understand it like it doesn’t mean it’s apostasy? When did you become do cynical you don’t believe what they say about there own church. I’ve listened to many of their sermons, many of their concerts and there messages are “Jesus Christ is Lord, there is no other Name by which we are saved”. Biblically that cannot come from any other spirit, but the Spirit of God. Just because you prefer 80+. Year old hymns that are just rewritten drinking songs doesn’t mean you have the right or knowledge to bash a church that’s getting more people into heaven than you are. Your blog is exactly what’s wrong with the church, use your blog to encourage, and teach. Not hate on other Christians.”
I submit the following youtube clip of young and free in concert.
Listen out at about the 40 sec mark to here Whitney Houston’s ‘Wanna Dance with Somebody”. Even if you know nothing about this 80’s song, the lyrics are still self evident.
“I wanna dance with somebody, I wanna feel the heat with somebody?”
This is nothing more than what the Bible says this is — ‘STRANGE FIRE”, and will receive God’s judgment.
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
