i can't help but think that Donnas point has just supported the earlier example Crystal gave of the drowning guy/gal. can i remind you? if someone is drowning, throw them anything that FLOATS! does it matter how we reach these kids as long as their hearts are captured for Christ? i don't think God will say, "I don't like how this person was saved, so it doesn't count?" i don't think so...

this does not surprise me one bit. i bet if i showed up in this community with my band, we would be railroaded out but QUICK! the persecution of Christians is nothing new. it is a story as old as the bible {or older}. anyway, we are preaching the gospel and God is on our side, just as He is on the side of Jars of Clay. it is His will that we spread the message and this is a tried and true, perfectly acceptable way to get through to young people. IT WORKS TOO!!!!

i don't believe that! Jars of Clay is an awesome group with an awesome message. i can assure you that they have sold many, many more CDs than will ever be burned. also, just to let you know, there are hundreds of well-respected churches who invite this group to perform in their sanctuaries and i don't think this would happen if they were singing 'junk.'

oh and charles, jars of clay? awaesome group! love their music. our is similar and i can only hope that some day we will reach the numbers that they have reached. i have all their CDs.

our group is called 'countdown,' and we really have a good message. right now we only perform at local churches in my home state, but i believe God will allow us to grow and spread the gospel to more and more young people. as you can imagine, that is our audience. my heart is overcome with joy when i see hardened teens come to Christ. there is no greater calling. no CDs right now. sorry, maybe some day.

no, shira, i am not 'walking the same walk, displaying the same sins...' i am born again & i follow after Christ w/all my heart. when someone leaves one of our concerts, they have heard that Jesus loved them enough to die for them. that he was nailed to a cross & rose again on the third day conquering death & hades. many of the attendees make decisions for Christ right then & there. i know God has called me to deliver the message in this manner. i am in obedience & reach people you cannot.

i am a member of a Christian rock group and i can assure you that our lyrics are all about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. though our means may be unconventional, our message is clear. time is short and JC is coming back soon. turn to the Lord while you still can. isn't that the message that we are all called to give? since that is the 'great commission' after all. it may be an 'old, old story,' but it sometimes needs to be told in a new way.
