Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

7:07 PM - The Atheist Co-Founder of Newsboys

This is from a news story in January but I don't recall posting this particular article link. I believe God is now is in the process of exposing the heart and soul of contemporary "Christian" music. One by one these people, generally speaking, are coming out of the closet of who they really are and what they really stand for. It is all about rebellion and doing your own thing. It's a "bastardized" Christianity that has taken over most of America's churches. The guy in this article was never a real Christian. He was self deceived like most American "Christians" are, which is why CCM is so popular. What he says now is so revealing.

-----------------------------------

In 1985, I co-founded Newsboys, one of the most successful Christian rock bands in history. You may have heard the band's music in the film God's Not Dead. The band's album of the same name hit No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. And I'm now an atheist.
-------------------
I always felt uncomfortable with the strict rules imposed by Christianity. All I wanted to do was create and play rock and roll… and yet most of the attention I received was focused on how well I maintained the impossible standards of religion. I wanted my life to be measured by my music, not by my ability to resist temptation.
-------------------
The Christian music scene is populated by many people who act as though they have a direct hotline to a God who supplies them with the answers to the Universe. There seems to be more ego and narcissism amongst Christian musicians than their secular counterparts.
