    Did you see this (from http://hamptonroads.com/2008/05/concerts-resume-after-fight-church-club)?

    So, is Club Relevant doing the work of the Lord? What say ye?

    Well I guess scripture like,
    1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him...
    is irrelevant to Club Relevant! :(

    Not sure you can tell by this one story. I'm sure if you asked the pastor, he's say that this is not what they intended to happen. I've been in a business meeting in a ultra-traditional baptist church where one old deacon grabbed another old deacon, and one who was grabbed took his cane and just about knocked the other one out. Was First Baptist (name withheld to protect the innocent) doing the work of the Lord? Well, sometimes.

    My church is very non-tradional and we do lots of "outside the box" kind of events. Most of what we do now accomplishes the purpose and usually goes smoothly. We are 6 years old now and have some experience. The truth is though, that most of what we do well now, we do well because we know what not to do because we've done it wrong before.

    If you read the story, the problem came when some rowdies were told to tone down their behavior, so obviously, bad behavior was not part of their plan. Check back in a few months when they've had a chance to tweek what they do to avoid these problems.

    Maybe to you, but not to everyone. So let me rephrase it for you...

    Yeah,

    I've seen adults in conservative, SBC, baptist churches at your typical cheesy church event acting like idiots too.

    It sounds like stuff happened here, now they're making decisions to avoid it from happening again. That's how life goes. Crap happens, then you make changes so they hopefully won't happen again.

    No need to turn it into anything other than that.

    I really do not have time to keep up with all of the nonsense in so many churches today. I have enough to do with my job, praying for people, and making disciples.

    Soon another new wave of fads will come and go just to be replaced by another.

    It was not Baptist (though it really doesn't matter in context) it was an Assembly of God church.

    No, I had it right the first time, I really don't need your help clarifying anything, thanks though.

    So I take it, you should use whatever tools you have at your disposal to lure people to Christ, am I right?

    I know you didn't ask me SGW, but it appears some among our ranks think anything that is used as bait is justified as long as it is done under the guise of the Lord's work. Makes me wonder what will be next.:tear:

    Do you mean like what the ancients said about Isaac Watts' CM of that day when he wrote about 750 of what we call hymns today? I am sure you do know the difference between CM and hymns -- 30 years.

    I pastored a church where a man told me that at one time he carried a pistol because one of the deacons harassed him regularly after church. Once the harasser knew it he quit the trouble. Amazing what a little fear will do a person's actions. Later I had trouble with the harasser's son. He got mad at me when his daughter came forward and I baptized her. She had come forward years earlier but it was obvious she was not a Christian. She had just gotten wet because her friends did. It was an FSBC.

    I thank God for Christian Rock...
    Just because some does not appreciate it, does not mean God cannot use it.

    Some of it I like, some I despise..

    Christian Rock is as much an oxymoron as Country Gospel (AKA Southern Gospel)

    I notice that both Cutter and SGW are from the southern US. Please be aware that just because many in the US are Southern Baptist.. the Southern part of the US does not hold an monopoly on Christianity...

    There are many Christian cultures around the world, and it may come as a surprise to many Southern Baptists, but Southern Gospel is not sung in many of them...

    God uses all kinds of music and ministries to get glory.
    Just as he uses Christian Rock.

    I dont really care for CR. My wife does. My attention was captured one day when she was listening to Casting Crowns. There is no doubt that they have solid God Glorifying music.

    I'm from the south and I'm a Baptist, but I'm not a Southern Baptist.
    You made an assumption in this regard. I am a fan of all kinds of music. It's just that when I listen to rock I want it to be rock and when I listen to Christian music I want it to have, what is to my ears ,a distinctive Christian sound. One that is familiar and I am accustomed to. If my rationale offends anyone so be it. When I play my guitar I turn on a rock station and jam out. In my car I have my dial set for country stations, rock stations, and oldies stations. When I approach the time of worship I desire to hear the sounds of gospel music that I grew up with. If you want to mix your rock with your gospel go ahead, that is your privilege, but I prefer to keep them seperate.
