Contempary Christian Worship Music

Authored by d2000pan on Fri, Jun 17 2005 - 05:20 PM

What is wrong with Contempary Christian Worship Music? First of all, it is slowly removing Jesus. Many of the lyrics in the worship don't have Jesus in it. I believe that if the name of Jesus Christ is not mentioned that song is no longer a Christian song.Second, it is too loud. The drums in the church is becoming louder and louder. Sometimes you ...

Is Heaven Opt-In or Opt-Out

Authored by rahlin on Tue, May 10 2005 - 09:38 AM

Been reading about this a lot lately. The more I read about a loving God, the more difficult time I have believing that people would be condemned for eternity. I think about a friend of mine, who was baptised at age 12, later swore off God and lived his life struggling to make things right in this world, from helping the poor, to opposing ...

My son's Advanced Placement Biology teacher is a christian who promotes her religion on school time. She knows my son is an atheist, and likes him anyway. However, she just gave all her seniors a card and gift for graduation. A very religious card and a D.O.G. necklace (depend on god). It states to rely on god instead of using your brain. She ...

Ten Commandments and Morality

Authored by jeanne53 on Mon, May 02 2005 - 12:50 AM

jeanne53's avatar

Extreme The problem with ONLY looking to the 10 Cs and bible verses for morality is that it is archaic writing of questionable authority. Humanity must decide with human thinking what are the moral absolutes we should hold to, and all must be qualified to reflect the situation. There are many different outlooks about the human ...

Just to clear up the name of this blog. Jeanne is pronounced like Jean..or like gene, as in DNA, genetics...you know. So the name is a play on my name....The Atheist Gene (Jeanne). Get it...pretty lame, huh? But we all have an atheist gene, I bet. Some think we have a genetic trait for gawd...well, the atheist must have an extra or lack of on ...

The wheels on the bus go round and round...

Authored by rahlin on Sat, Apr 30 2005 - 06:17 AM

Many thanks to Jon C. for the title of this post.Praize is beginning to make the crazy. For the past week we have pretty much had about 10 threads to discuss two topics. Why the Pope is the anti-christ/bad person/catholicism sucks. And secondly, homosexuality is bad.  This is not to say they were the only threads, simply that they certainly ...

Free Will?

If the matter which exploded to become the “Big Bang” started the universe and all that is in it, then all matter whether living or “dead”...cells aren’t really dead with all those electrons moving around, I don’t suppose....reacts to the physical actions put into place. These actions and reactions are infinite and chaotic. All of our being ...

The Meaning Of My Life

Authored by jeanne53 on Wed, Apr 27 2005 - 06:41 PM

jeanne53's avatar

I have no opposing belief to deities, I have no belief at all. I only know what I know and what has been proved and what has been my experience in my own life. The christian deity has no place in my life, nor do any of the other deities. I give my own meaning to my life. I am here to do my part in the continuence of my species, to make my ...

Starting a House Church

Authored by rahlin on Wed, Apr 27 2005 - 04:49 AM

So, in my continuing pursuit of truth, I think I would like to start a house church. As someone recently pointed to me, our churches often have a limited amount of grace. This is to true, and it really impedes our ability to have honest and open discussions. Certainly this is true here on Praize.Maybe it is just a foolish dream, but I would love ...

Doing Good Works

Authored by rahlin on Sun, Apr 24 2005 - 03:01 PM

Well, I got called out by Sojourner on talking about doing. Then today in church the sermon was about being a conduit of hope. So, it comes time to practice what I preach. I  need to get out and volunteer. A very exciting week here on Praize. Big arguments about homosexuality really seemed to get the forums going. I at least posted more than I ...

Homosexuality Is As Natural As Heterosexuality

How about entering the 21st Century, people?! Martin Luther may have been gay for all we know...he certainly had a terrible disdain for women. Who cares what an ignorant person from ancient history thought? Homosexuality is as natural as heterosexuality or bisexuality. As a natural occurance...gasp!...it must have been condoned by the ...

I can't stand it anymore! My local newspaper is again filled with the idea from its anonymous readers that kids are not allowed to pray in public schools! Arrrrgggghhh! I have twice asked them to please do a piece on the Equal Access Act of 1984...please. This act was passed specifically for christians in public schools, and it allows for ...

Children of Atheists

Authored by jeanne53 on Thu, Apr 14 2005 - 12:06 AM

jeanne53's avatar

In my locale the public schools are overtly christian, which created problems for my kids. They were not afraid of revealing their lack of belief, but were dumbfounded by those who refused to accept the possiblity that anyone could NOT believe in a deity. When they were in elementary school, they were often told that they and their family were ...

Elements........ If we listen to the wind, If we bathe within the sea, There are truths that we shall know, And our hearts will set us free....... As we stand upon the sand, As we view the setting sun, There are thoughts that we shall hear, And we’ll know that we are one....... So sing softly to the night, So speak gently to the ...

I do not want anyone to forgive these aberations of human beings, these monsters, these evil doers. I want them buried alive for what they have done, ...

Taking Religion Seriously

Authored by rahlin on Fri, Apr 15 2005 - 08:56 PM

One thing i've noticed on Praize is that people, regardless of their denomination, seem to take their faith pretty dang seriously. And I guess that has its place. On the other hand, people need to calm down sometimes. You can't run your whole life at a sprint. If we are truly to be Christlike, our faith cannot always be a trumpet or a drum. It has ...

Relient K video Be my escape

Authored by d2000pan on Wed, May 25 2005 - 09:57 PM

Their music video and their lyrics are awful. They sing about blending in. They want to blend in with the world. Their song Be my escape is very popular now. Even Radio Disney is playing Relient K. They sing in their song that the beauty of Grace is it makes life not fair.I believe the message is not clear. I was watching an interview with them on ...

Satanic Salute

I notice that the Satanic Salute on Christian television. Especially on youth channels like TV U. Obadiah had a big red Satanic Salute right on the webpage. Why are they promoting that symbol. Maybe these music videos are not Christian at all. http://www.tvulive.com/Todays random verse: 1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal ...

Summer Camp

Authored by d2000pan on Fri, May 27 2005 - 07:49 AM

Yesterday at Church their was a video about Summer Camp. The young folks were advertising the 2005 summer camp next month. I think this Church has become very entertainment driven. There will be lots of games. Good food. Good worship bands. And a good speaker.Is the Church suppose to entertain the youth? Fun and more fun. On Tuesday the College ...

God Shaped Hole

Is the God Shaped Hole the gospel message. I was listening to Plumb and one of their song God shape hole. Only God can fill. Plumb sings that we all have a God shape hope. Pastor Greg Laurie preaches that we have a hole in our heart that you can't fill with anything else but God. Is this true, do we all a hole in our heart. I think this God Shape ...

I was watching the news last week and they talk about was the American Idol. Who won. Some country girl. In the Christian world there are idols too, whether it be Amy Grant, Jeremy Camp, or Rebecca St. James. An idol is an idol. They get their fans screaming for them just like the secular world Christian have their idols. I use to adore the ...
