What's so funny. I thought this was fact.

This is just one of the MANY examples of what was spoken of as "False Prophets" - America is full of Flase Prophets...Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye and thousands of other lesser knowns. I fear the time has come where this kind of nonsense will become mainstream and "nornal" - The U.S. is too close to becoming a full on Theocracy, which if it happens will signal the end of see the so called "Christian" nation (The U.S.A.) and the "Church" (mostly the Religious Right) may actually be the army of "The Beast" of Revelation. I've always had a sick feeling in my stomach when it comes to American Christianity (at least the Fundamentalist Right Wing kind) and I think people who tend to beleive such things better take a good hard look at themselves and thier "Churches". I hate to sound so whacked out but I think it's worth worrying about.

Also, it says in the Bible that Satan was in charge of music in Heaven efoe he was kicked out. Pretty interesting eh?

Where does it say that?

The article may bring up some decent points, but to bring C.S. Lewis into all of this is nothing short of ludicrous.

His Narnia chronicles, with partcular reference to the 'Aslan' comparison provided, were blatant metaphors for Christ and Christianity. The fact that Aslan resurrects should have been an explicit enough clue.

I'm not trying to ridicule anyone who's bought into that argument, but its something I truly believe Lewis never had the intention of selling. I also believe that if you are looking for literary evidence in his works to support such an argument, one would have to do better than that. Aslan has always represented Christ, not idolatry.

Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

Dorothy Parker, 'Resumé'

That's for certain. My kids were watching this over Thanksgiving break and StarzKids (the digital movie channel) played the animated "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and out of the blue my daughter said, "Aslan is a lot like Jesus mommy". At the end when he is killed and then comes back to life, she said"See mommy he is like Jesus!" She is 9.

Ok now onto music...

I don't really know how I feel in regards to this. I love music, no Love music, no LOVE MUSIC! The majority of my collection ( and I think it is somewhat sizeable are bands and groups that are not in any way God centered). Have I made a compromise in what I choose to listen to? Yeh I have.

I don't let what I listen to affect my beliefs, but in the end it does affect my mood, my mindset and my emotions so I guess it is something to consider.

Music is just so very important to me. The thing I think that should be asked is do I put it before God? No, I don't.

Interesting thread though and once again it has prompted me to think about what I choose to listen to.

Take Care,

I believe music is a gift from God, and it's like anything else we humans have, we can abuse this gift as well as use it well.

*Looks at link* thinks some people out there have waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too much time on their hands...

My thoughts on music-music is just that-music. It can only affect people in some way, shape, or form if they let it.
