Quote# 20078

The Biblical standards for music are:

Separation: The music as well as the musicians should be distinctly separate from anything that is worldly. Simply, the music should not sound like the music the world loves.

Testimony: The musicians testimony should be one that demonstrates their love for God and their willingness to serve Him. Of course, this means that they must be living a pure and holy life. Opening for rock/pop/rap/mainstream country stars would, of course, disqualify them.

Message: The message of the music must be clear, must praise God and must edify the saint.

So only Christian music that nobody likes qualifies?

So, AC/DC are out, then?

So, basically, \"good\" xian music is complete silence?

\"...the music should not sound like the music the world loves. ...\"

Oh! So that explains why church music and christian rock sound so god-awful that no one with any taste could possibly love it. Got it.

\"Simply, the music should not sound like the music the world loves.\"

Seriously, the mockery here just writes itself -- heck, it's already written!

Bro. Randy has SPOKEN. Do not disagree or argue, or you'll be banned, have your posts deleted, and the thread will be closed.

This pretty much proves that fundies are one dimensional.

\"should not sound like the music the world loves\"

So I can tell christian music because it sucks?

Dude, Bro Randy is such a kill joy.

I suppose it would be laughably unlikely for this guy to know that country music has its very roots in devout christian homesteaders and other people who built much of America as it is today, bluegrass in particular.

\"The Biblical standards for music are:\"

No, these are Bro. Randy's standards for music. BR, please show the Bible verses that support your claim that these are \"biblical standards.\"


\"Separation: The music as well as the musicians should be distinctly separate from anything that is worldly.\"

What? It all has to be played on air guitar?


\"Simply, the music should not sound like the music the world loves.\"

It's only acceptable music if it's so bad that everyone hates it?


\"Testimony: The musicians testimony should be one that demonstrates their love for God and their willingness to serve Him.\"

And, Xian rock doesn't do that?


\"Of course, this means that they must be living a pure and holy life.\"

So, you KNOW that all Xioan rockers are living an \"unpure\" and \"unholy\" life?


\"Opening for rock/pop/rap/mainstream country stars would, of course, disqualify them.\"

And, you know that all rock/pop/rap/mainstream country stars are leading \"unpure\" and \"unholy\" lives?


\"Message: The message of the music must be clear, must praise God and must edify the saint\"

So, music without lyrics is not allowed. All those J.S. Bach organ works, Mozart's concerti, etc. are disallowed?


Bro. Randy, not only are you an ignorant and stupid asshole, you're also musically illiterate. Worse yet, you're attempting to make vulnerable teenagers as ignorant, stupid and illiterate as yourself. Shame on you. Shut up and go sit in the corner.

I read the first sentence and I knew this had to be bro.randy.

Simply, the music should not sound like the music the world loves.

Okay then, so incredibly extreme death and black metal is good then, because it's not mainstream?

Testimony: The musicians testimony should be one that demonstrates their love for God and their willingness to serve Him.

Oh. Right.

So, basically what you're demanding musicians is to be like monks without habit. I wonder why you don´t demand the same for writers, film-makers, actors......or the rest of the human world.

Sounds like the only thing that qualifies is that infernal Sunday School Song, \"Jesus Loves Me.\"

So only music that sounds crappy is holy? Because it can't be anything the world finds enjoyable.

1/31/2007 6:34:35 PM

CrowdingHell

This sounds like really crappy music.

So where in the Bible are those 'standards' listed?

And I think you'll have trouble finding any music that the whole world likes. Dickhead.

But what we get instead could bore the stripes off a skunk.

Handel, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, the Gregorian monks (to name a few) ... those guys knew Christian music. There are few men of their caliber alive today (except, of course, that there are still Gregorian monks).

In another thread on their \"Music\" board, they refer to Bob Jones University as a \"Liberal Arts College.\"

OK...when BJU begins to look liberal to you...it's time to check into rehab.

Didn't he watch 'Jesus Camp'? They were totally using metal riffs when those kids were dancing in the opening scene.
