I thought that as I start my regular posting here, I might pose a couple beliefs and issues about todays church and worship. I. The Bible As I've heard a preacher say before - "We don't need a new Bible, we just need to read and obey the one we've got." If anybody can show me what was wrong with the 1611 King James Version that we needed to make a new alteration, I would be much obliged. The new translations omit precious verses and parts of the Bible which I don't believe God could possibly see as acceptable. "Every word of God is pure." II. Music "I hear alot of people talkin' about their praise and worship music.....I thought that's what we where doin' years ago when we sung 'Pow'r in the Blood.' I thought that's what we were doin' when we sung 'Heaven's Jubilee' myself." Someone says in "defense" of Praise and Worship/Contemporary that it's making the same message more acceptable for todays generation. God Help. Folks, when we start to try and make GOD more suitable for sinners...we're in trouble. Not to say that this passage was talking about issues above, but it does work well. Look at Genesis 26:17. I believe it says "And they digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father." Heh....WELL GLORY. Let's see...um...Hallelujah. I think Isaac might of been in some trouble had he tried to make his own wells. "We're living in a generation where we've gone mad with this "new" thing, everything you see is new and improved. Why, you can't even go to the grocery store and not even buy a bag of tater chips without it saying "New and Improved" on it. I asked my wife the other day "What'd we eat before?" "Old 'n Rotten, I reckon."....and that mentality has crept over into our churches. We need a new Bible, need a new version, need a new way, need a new method....I wanna tell you tonight, there's nothing wrong with the old wells of God!"
