An Urgent Message

drum

A stunning message to Americans .  . .  and the world.

For 30 years we have suffered intense persecution, and now freedom is bringing another great harm to our churches. This damage is coming from the Christians in America who are sending rock music and evangelists accompanied by rock bands. Our young people do not attend these meetings because we have all committed not to participate in secular entertainment. This is a great burden on our hearts. Many come with Bible in hand and rock music. We are embarrassed by this image of Christianity.

We do not know what words to use in urging that this be stopped. We abhor all Christian rock music coming to our country. Rock music has nothing in common with ministry or service to God. We are very, very against Christian Americans bringing to our country this false image of “ministry” to God. We need spiritual bread; please give us true bread, not false cakes.

It is true that rock music attracts people to the church, but not to Godly living. We were in prison for 15 years and 11 years for Christ’s sake. We were not allowed to have Christian music, but rock music was used as a weapon against us day and night to destroy our souls. We could only resist with much prayer and fasting. Now, we have a time of more openness, and we are no longer taken to prison. However, now it is Christians from America who damage our souls. We do not allow this music in our church, but they rent big stadiums and infect teenagers and adults with their rock music. We, the leadership and congregations of the Unregistered Union of …Churches, the former Persecuted Church, have made an agreement not to allow rock music in our church. We urge you to join with us and we advise you to remove rock music from America. Do not desecrate our teenagers with it. Even the unbelievers recognize it is unholy music and they cannot understand how American Christians can be so much like the world.

We can give you the conclusion that after Russian unbelievers have attended the rock concerts where Christ’s Word was preached, the people were very disappointed and disillusioned with Christianity. We call this music from hell. We urge all Americans to stop giving money for the organization of such concerts in Russia. We want only traditional Christian music in our churches. This is the unanimous decision of all our leaders.

The Furthest Galaxy and How We See It

To read more about the Distant Starlight “Problem” see here and here.

On November 15th, Hubble released an article on their website about the most distant galaxy they have ever found. At some 78,184,047,528,993,000,000,000 miles away, this galaxy has been said to give astronomer’s an amazing new sight into galaxy’s evolutionary history.

The diminutive blob, which is only a tiny fraction of the size of our Milky Way galaxy, offers a peek back into a time when the universe was 3 percent of its present age of 13.7 billion years. The newly discovered galaxy, named MACS0647-JD, is observed 420 million years after the big bang. Its light has traveled 13.3 billion years to reach Earth.

Some might wonder, when reading this quote, “why do the universe is billions of years old and then say this galaxy is only 420 million years old?” The answer is found in the complex theory of the speed of light.

According to common knowledge, lights travels at 186,282 miles per second, 11,176,920 miles in a minute, 67,0615,200 miles per hour, 16,094,764,800 miles per day, 112,663,353,600 miles per week, and some 5,878,499,814,210 miles per year. As you can see, light travels very fast.

Anyway, when evolutionists “find” a new galaxy they look at it and calculate how many light-years it is away from the Earth. Then, once they have calculated that, they take the supposed age of the universe, 13.7 billions years, and work out the current age of the galaxy they are seeing.

However, since the galaxy they are looking at is so far away the evolutionists assume that it is just in its “baby” stages and this will give us a great look into the evolution of galaxies. But, something the evolutionists forgot is that this galaxy has always been visible but we just haven’t developed, until now, the right tool to see it. Its light is always there, the only way the evolutionists can guess at the age of the galaxy is because of the speed of light.

Well, there we have it, we somehow got back to the gigantic debate about distant starlight! To answer this question I recommend you read this article and this one. If you still have questions go here and see Jason Lisle, who wrote the first article and has done years of research into this, at his website. He gets all kinds of questions about starlight and he is literally a genius on the subject.

I find it interesting how the evolutionists, in general, make a job out of assuming things and then make a hobby out of accusing us of assuming things!

Where’s the Love Bro? – Edgy Emotions

feelings

I have only heard a few of Jason Gray’s songs on the radio, but the few I’ve heard have always been very vague and void of meaning that goes beyond the words.

Give me rules
I will break them
Give me lines
I will cross them
I need more than a truth to believe
I need a truth that lives, moves, and breathes
To sweep me off my feet
It ought to be

(CHORUS)
More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

Give me words
I’ll misuse them
Obligations
I’ll misplace them
‘Cause all religion ever made of me
Was just a sinner with a stone tied to my feet
It never set me free
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love

It’s like I’m falling in love, love, love
Deeper and deeper
It was love that made
Me a believer
In more than a name, a faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love
It’s gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance
Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It’s like I’m falling, oh
It’s like I’m falling in love
It’s like I’m falling, oh
I’m falling in falling
It’s like I’m falling

Well, it looks like Jamie Grace did better than Jason in terms of mentioning God. Jason doesn’t even mention God once in his song and mentions Jesus by name once. But, even if Jason talked of God every other word, his song still gives off the modern-day cultural Christianity message the world is begging for.

I once read a book written by Adrian Rogers. In this book he said something to the effect of, “emotions are the least reliable sense in your body. They are always changing.” Yet, in this entire song, Jason is saying that he won’t trust his other senses and he’ll go only for the feelings.

Don’t believe me? Look at the words. He suggests “falling in love” 19 times and rejects the other, more stable senses 14 times. His suggestions to all his listeners comes directly from the cultural Christianity idea that our feelings are very important for our spiritual life. They are the least reliable sense and yet everybody makes them out to be the heroes.

Also, his line, saying, “Falling in love with Jesus brought the change in me” is completely untrue and the opposite of what the Bible says. It is Jesus’ love that changes us, not the other way around. A serious wrong by Jason.

Where’s the Love Bro? – Music Madness

micThe other day, it took me about 20 minutes to even realize the radio station that was on wasn’t Christian. That really shocked me. I mean, think about it. Jesus Christ has called us to not be conformed to this world, and yet our music, which is supposed to worship God alone, is so close to secular music that few can tell the difference.

Take Jamie Grace’s “Hold Me” song. Jamie Grace is a new singer in the Christian circle and I know many like her, but her song, “Hold Me” is very different from other Christian songs. Here are the lyrics:

I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you, the way you

I’ve had a long day, I just wanna relax
Don’t have time for my friends, no time to chit chat
Problems at my job, wonderin’ what to do
I know I should be working but I’m thinking of you and

Just when I feel this crazy world is gonna bring me down
That’s when your smile comes around

Oh, I love the way you hold me, by my side you’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can’t imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh

Well ya, took my day and you flipped it around
Calmed the tidal wave and put my feet on the ground
Forever in my heart, always on my mind
It’s crazy how I think about you all of the time

And just when I think I’m ’bout to figure you out
You make me wanna sing and shout

I love the way you hold me, by my side you’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can’t imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh

I’m so grateful and thankful for all you’ve done
Wish I could tell you in a short story or poem
But all I have is my voice and this guitar
And you have my heart

Oh, I love the way you hold me, by my side you’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I’ll always be
You take each and every day, every day, every

I love the way you hold me, by my side you’ll always be
You take each and every day oh-so-special
I love the way you hold me, in your arms I’ll always be
You take each and every day, make it special in some way

I love you more than the words in my brain can express
I can’t imagine even loving you less

Lord, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh, I love the way you hold me
Whoa, oh
Oh, I love

I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me
I love, I love, I love, I love the way you hold me, hold me, hold me

Now, Jamie probably really does have good intentions and is saved, but her song is very culture. Out of all 558 words, the only clear references to God are the name “Lord” three times. That is a total of 0.005% of the song.

Now, someone could say the whole song is about God, and I’m sure Jamie means it to be that way, but look at the lyrics and take out the three “Lord”. What do you have? A song that could be about any guy or girl!

If this were a secular song, would you let your kid listen to it? Think of what the words are saying! This kind of music disturbs me greatly. And then, in line 20, Jamie addresses God as “ya”? Back in the day, one couldn’t even say God’s name because it was so Holy. But now we have people calling God, “ya”? That drives me crazy!
