Re: Stryper question

When it gets right down to it, anyone claiming to be a believer should be doing their best to live that way. That doesn't just apply to people who have to deal with the public or are in your favorite band. We all mess up. If we didn't, there would have been no reason for Jesus to die. It's possible ...

Re: Homosexuals and the Russian Orthodox Church

Okay, I agree going to this extreme isn't the way to handle this, and isn't likely to change anything. I think it's important to keep in mind that the Bible is clear about homosexuality being a sin. It's also important to understand homosexuality is not the only sin the Bible talks about. You need t...

Re: Privacy nonsense

It is true that the Internet is a necessary tool for most people. I get that the government shouldn't be allowed to have free access to whatever information they want, but there are no easy answers. Maybe if the government was required to allow access to their information in return they wouldn't be ...

Re: Privacy nonsense

A very interesting topic. Generally privacy is rather overlooked and I think we are accepting way too much mass superveillance all over the world. Many people will say "I have nothing to hide" and that may even be true. But that is not the situation in which all individuals find themselves. And how...

Re: Privacy nonsense

That is a good article. The fact is, the only way you could be totally sure your information wouldn't be out there would be to not have Internet or not have cable. The media has a way of spreading horror stories. I could get along vey well without cable, and if I had to make a choice, that would be ...

Re: CPR

I always paid more attention to the music than any dancing, and I only saw Greg a few times. The majority of the Petra concerts I went to were when John was with them. It was the message that really counted, and God can and does use imperfect people to communicate His message. If He needed perfect p...

Re: CPR

Let's not read more into all this than might be there...It's just people's opinions. Greg contributed a great deal to Petra's history and he has a wonderful voice. I happen to like his version of Dream On a lot. Some singers move around more on stage than others. John moved around a lot too. It boil...

Re: CPR

...he sings and moves like... a youth group pastor trying to be legit. I remember seeing Greg X. Volz on tour right after the release of his 1991 album The Exodus . One standout moment that evening was of him hitting a high note whilst doing a high kick a la David Lee Roth. IMG_1241.JPG :lol:

Re: Unseen Power Review

Poor Hand On My Heart. I do realize it won't be to everyone's taste, but I happen to like that song, and they were so cute when they sang it in concert. 8) I love I Need to Hear From You too. I like Unseen Power, although not as much as Beyond Belief. There are a lot of good songs on Unseen Power. I...

Re: Theological advice from unlikely sources.

I don't have to agree with someone's political views to enjoy their music or enjoy a movie or TV show. I don't think everyone is required to like Trump, and it is true the definition of "American" can be different for different people. I don't dispute that. And I don't have anything against immigran...

Re: Theological advice from unlikely sources.

I don't know about Bruce, aside from him being anti-american. Pretty sure he is lost. I don't like the majority of his music. It all sounds the same. He sounds like he is bound up and just needs to take some Pepto and a big dump. Have you ever listened to Willie Nelson's solo in We Are The World? L...

Re: Trump Tape

I am going to have to catch up on this thread, I haven't read all the posts. I do understand what you mean. It is too easy to get into making generalizations. It's not right to assume every Muslim is a terrorist, just as it isn't right to assume every Hispanic person is a gang member or that all whi...

Re: Trump Tape

During the last couple of weeks I have found it striking that some of you are very reluctant to critizice or even hear anything bad about any member of Petra or anyone associated with the band, while in religious and political debates you seem to have a very different approach and rather easily gen...

Re: Swine Tour - 20 years ago today

Well, that was 20-years, so long-distance communication wasn't anywhere near as easy or convenient as it is today. A phone call may have simply not been possible, and then once they arrive they have to rush the load-in and don't have the time or desire to chat about what happened on the road severa...
