From the Biblical Straining at a Gnat Department

Had an online discussion with someone arguing that contemporary music can't be Christian (he pointed me to some book, I never get any verses). He has a PhD from a respected seminary... so I looked up his program. Turns out, the curriculum is based on the work of four men from the Evangelical Heretics Hall of Fame.

While he's breaking down the secret Satanic message in Petra's "The Coloring Song," he's swallowing garbage from gospel-denying false teachers. I'm sure he tithes, though.

Something for us all to remember:
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence."
-Matthew 23

I'm not saying the guy is full of greed and self-indulgence (I'm being hyperbolic to make a point), but if you can't miss huge heretics (or worse, you accept them for the sake of getting the letters after your name), don't try to tell me the Getty's are the spawn of Satan.

No one is more critical of some of the horrid doctrine in and around contemporary artists than I... but we need to apply that to all we do. Test the spirits.

Video warning: Contains the backbeat!
