Was amazed at some of what I read over there on the Baptist Only Version of the Thread... First, of all the test is heavily weighted by KJV-only exclusivists... So, even if you are tricked into agreeing with them over CCM... You still won't be acceptable... No, that is just a first step of many to bind you with legalism... Then, they had to go and add Bob Larson to the mix... a TBNite? So, now we have both ends of the extreme... Then there's the cook an egg with the music? If there really was enough energy to cook an egg the youth would be in the hospital! Convulsing... Then they throw in Back-Masking... Something which has never been actually scientifically proven. Not in a proper laboratory environment. And, not in real life... In this regard they are no better than the evolutionists who seek out, find and tailor evidence to fit their preconcieved notions... Now as to the issue of Petra borrowing some lines from a secular rock group... Let's see that song only appeared on their first album... (Might have also been on a collection album) It was one song of about a thousand over more than thirty years of Christian Concerts and hard hitting messages and actual altar calls... And, while it ranks in Spiritual Import with "Lucas McGraw"... it is hardly indicative of what Petra *grew* to become. As for demanding total separation from the world that is something they themselves can't do as they have to live and work in this life just as the rest of us... But, I guess they have removed this verse from their coveted KJV? 1 Corinthians 5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. The real teaching is "In the World" but "Not Of The World"... Else we would not interact enough to win the lost! 1 Corinthians 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. The NIV is Clearer here: 1 Corinthians 7:31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away. Mike Sr. Honestly, I really don't think it was very fair to take such pot shots at CCM and not allow all of us to take parts in any ensuing "discussion".
