I have to say when I look at all the beliefs to worship God, more and more I personally believe fundmentalism is the best way. It answers all the questions in a sufficient manner of doctrine. We don't pick and choose, we cover everything from God's love to His wrath. That is not to say, we fundies are perfect because we are far from perfect but I take great comfort in knowing that when we do miss our mark we don't produce this type of nonsense.

I understand we want to get young people in church but I ask you, Can we not do better than this? They may not like us but at least they can respect us because we are serious about our God we serve.

Tokin' the Ghost- These guys are invited to many churches.

If that's the worse video you've seen, you're living with your head in the sand. I expect God is much more concerned with these videos. I encourage you to watch them so that a couple of Christians on youtube acting foolish and spreading the gospel will fall in rank from the 'worst' to somewhere wayyyyy down the list.

(I'm betting you won't watch these, though)


YouTube - The Darfur Genocide: A Present Reality


YouTube - Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Evangel Hospital


YouTube - SAD Video About Children Having Cancer, MUST SEE!!!!!


YouTube - Sad Children


YouTube - Dear Mr. Jesus


YouTube - Kazakhstan Orphan Video


YouTube - Before my child had cancer


YouTube - Kyle, Emma & Katie Coble Memorial (Actually
Coble Family Update )

I dunno, maybe you need some more....but IMHO, those are much worse than the ones I see in your OP.

Alpha,

Most of your videos were unavailable, but I caught the Kazakh and the Mr. Jesus video. I couldn't bring myself to finish Mr. Jesus. How horrifying that compassion is in such short supply in our world.

I am sorry but the Mr Jesus one actually sickened me. The song was beautiful but the words were harsh and the video was just sick. It angers me so bad when someone abuses a child. I feel bad even if I spank my child, but to beat a child is just plain wrong and the abuse needs to be punished.

Me too.....to both of you.

The point is that there is much more to be concerned about in the world than a couple of Christians who may or may not have an effective ministry. At least they are doing something and according to their website, they believe what I do.

They are at least trying to reach people for Christ while in this world we live in people are dying needlessly. If those two guys, who appear to be taking the biblical directive I'll post below a little too literally, can reach one Franklin Graham (Samaritan's Purse) or one K.P. Yohannan (Gospel for Asia) then I say God's will be done. Who am I to judge the calling of another?

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Eph 5:15-21

You are right so long as they are doing the Lords will and reaching the disenfrachised who are we to judge them? I personally reach out to those who others are afraid of like rednecks, racists, bikers, criminals because that is what I feel the Lord called me to do based on the life He allowed me to live as an athiest. If someone is violent or hateful then they are my target audience. I also reach out to the sexually sinful from porn to adultry.
