John 3:16 KJV: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍 Matthew 22 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Galatians 5 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. ♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍♥️🤍 the music thread is gone so I'm posting these by themselves instead. At my assembly today it was reminded that ALL the law is fulfilled and HANGS on the commandment of love. How much do we make sure we're right with the law and doing the right thing and we ignore the actual focus of God and his will from the beginning his commandment. Death experiences have told us of the great love when in the light of God. Many of us have known moments when we have been put in front of God's love and how much we want to live in it forever and how much we will live in it forever.

Nice that you edited my thread into something completely different instead of just making a new one hmm. When you really think about the reality of the Passover alone, it's insane to think you have this total fulfilment in Jesus and think nothing of it but coincidence.
Andrew Peterson's Passover US by the way is the only normie song that should be allowed in the Church. Because I personally like it. "OOOOOOOOH please!" trumpets yan Christian volk "Who cares if it's a typical normie song what matters is the lyrics!" So should we hang deviantart level Jesus pictures in the church too. They got all the classic details about Jesus right maybe it's a picture of him on the cross, but the picture still has to look good. The people in charge of what songs to sing at church always seem not that great I personally think, I don't like these normie boring weak limp wrist songs. You know what I'm talking about don't you? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-1fwZtKJSM And they have so so so many views because so many churches use this song, looking at the MUSIC VIDEO alone makes you wonder what the heck is this? Assembly? This am Assembly music forthwith? Straightway? And when Peter was come down? "But songs have to be slow in order for people to be able to sing them together." Yeah that's fine, lyrics are okay but now you look at Upper Window what church is singing Upper Window. It's got the genericness but it's also about a literal bible event and it sounds good actually which you don't get with a lot of these hymns, I think it's important at least. Jesus Paid It All really touches me and I can see other people thinking it's generic. So certainly I'm sure some of the generic garbage out there has touched people. And we sing too many songs in Assembly, mine does SIX, think that's enough? There's old people there can't even stand for it all. Yes it is I... the complainer, behold my flowing tassels bitterness. This says me with the backwards sword: I am not happy as it stands with Assembly music. Observe that this board has made minor improvements, observe then that I wish deeply for the music to be fixed in Assembly. And why don't people use the Psalms much at all. "My assembly doe-" that's great. I think my last Assembly sang two of the Psalms.... I mean really think about it why do we have an entire book of the Bible with songs in it and we don't use it, what? I wish I could find the John Barnett video of him explaining so well how Churches perform music for themselves. And I would say that if the music doesn't have a connection with anyone then there's really no point in singing. Look, I'm just upset my assembly does 6 "christian charts top ten songs" every time, it kind of feels like an after thought. And big music I think is really important to every so often do go crazy with loud cymbals and trumpets as the Bible says to do and as many Jews still have that tradition of actually moving and being excited in their music. Do I blame the Catholic church? Yes, I do blame them for everything frankly so yes in some way it's probably their fault I would assume that my church does SIX songs which most of them I don't care for. Either put together the best hymns of history or sing psalms at least no one like me the complainer can complain if a Psalm is bad instead I'll just complain about the particular rendition of it. Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me also has that generic feel to it but it's good. It just feels like some people can't tell the difference between good and bad generic music and that goes for the world. Like when you hear horrible heavy bass music from a car and it's like "HELE UMPA SAYD O YEAAAA" spanish stuff or it's gangster rap, but it's generic, but of course there is good HELE UMPA YEAAA music. I like music that's bad. That's the problem I think is that it's as if people think if they like music it's therefore good, I mean I really think many people actually think that... don't they? You know how awful this problem is if you work at a grocery store when you've heard the same songs on loop over and over again like Poker Face, it's insane, how do you get away with using bad music in public, I mean there's instrumental music that's specifically made for grocery stores, freely availible, use that. Or get someone who actually knows music to choose tons and tons of OBJECTIVELY good music, it's really that simple. There is such a thing as objectively good music which is the only music you should be playing in public settings or getting public assemblies to sing. Welcome to church everyone sing "Winged Hussars". Can you imagine? Well I like it so it must be good. NO. I want an objective person in there. The New Testament says to not just sing Psalms from the book of Psalms and we know from the book of Psalms that there were people in charge of the music in ancient Israel and so can we get some people to really get some good songs in hmm? I feel like this is an email I should be sending to my church but I'm writing it here instead. GET RID OF STAGES TOO. I feel like I'm losing my mind some times. We literally have stages at church. It's so ridiculous. "OH but e don't strobe lights and smoke machines and stuff." Well you might as well. The best Assembly I went to in my old city we sat in a rented out small area and there was no stage no nothing the pastor sat at the front on a stool that was it. Though I wish we sat in circles, based on the first/second century cave assembly we discovered they sat in a circle and probably perseverated the men and women but I know also even in the New Testament Paul basically doesn't even know what to do about the different styles of Churches, the gentile women didn't want to cover their heads and Paul more or less gives up on the whole argument and says do what you want but you're wrong if you allow women not to cover their heads but the point is assemblies will be what they are I suppose until Jesus comes.
John Brown was John the Baptist for the Christ we are to see. I need to make an image to easily explain Daniel 9, just focus on how it predicts Jesus and Nero. In general I need to make more quick images for people to read. WOMAN WHERE IS YOUR HUSBAND! HE SAID WOOOOMAN WHERE IS YOUR HUSBAND! If I had to pick one song to be with me on an island. Yes it would be this. JESUS I AIN'T GOT NO HUSBAND! HE SAID WOOOOMAN WOOOMAN YOOOOU'VE GOT FIVE HUSBANDS!
It convicts of sin. Knowing you're forgiven and going to Paradise yet every sin I still commit the Master suffered for. Every stupid failure when you realise how painful it is to the Shepherd and how you break the heart of the Lord, how you've been unfaithful to your Lover. I forgot the last post I was going to mention some issues I was having with my marriage but I don't think it's worth posting here. My wife isn't at calvary yet and I'm not acting like I am when I'm constantly being distracted. I care more about my wife than Jesus and it's been like that for a month now and every time the Spirit rises and stretches himself inside me I only get a small burst but I'm pulled back to the world's distractions and my vows are trashed. I understand my wife is my devotion until it stabilises and I want to present her. I feel like you just got to make time, that's all you need to do you got to make time with God and you got to get rid of things and fast. In other words, Fast Watch Pray, yes. If it's just me that's one thing, I didn't consider that if you're going to take a woman as yours you are now responsible for her. I just find it difficult since we aren't totally one person yet but headed in the right direction very slowly. We live in a terrible society and I don't wanna write more I'm tired.
>>14827 Christians don't need edgy larp hardcore xxx metal grunge deathmetal ultrahardcore meme music to paint an aura of toughness because the one true living God is on our side.
Give me some christian metal rock. I exchange Hail Santa https://youtu.be/d5pTSX8p-6c
>>23617 Such a shame Saint Nicholas is too much refered as Santa Claus. Weird how Nicholas's actual day is on December 6th. A church my hometown dedicated to him would give us apples whenever it's Saint Nicholas's day. Nice.
Some Christian Punk. I'm currently look for Christian Punk music that sounds like Crust punk, but most of what i find is 2000s hardcore music or metal core.
>>22648 >the one true living God is on our side And how's that been working out for you? You're being outfought and outbred by Muslims at every turn. All your enemies, whether they be Nazis, Jews or satanic gangs like MS13, view you as prey and not serious opposition. In a hundred years, probably less, there won't be any Christians at all except for maybe a few tiny heresies in third world countries with no power or influence. The people writing these songs are so soft and out of touch they can't even imagine themselves being strong and powerful, and it shows in their work. You don't have an "aura of toughness", if anything you have an aura of flabbiness.

>>24747 >And how's that been working out for you? You're being outfought and outbred by Muslims at every turn ISIS was defeated, the Gulf Arabs are secularizing and Christianity is spread faster than ever throughout the developing world. Even in the darkness of the modern United States the Lord has preserved a remnant with Amish holding steadfast and being blessed with their numbers doubling naturally every decade. Your glowie handbook is out of date at Langley.
>>24749 Still doesn't mean you can make good music
>>24750 There is good Christian music out there, What is considered "good" is of the world and full of harmful subliminal messages like Michael Jackson's music. https://www.bitchute.com/video/qhGcMeq7Pf3Z/
>>24749 >ISIS was defeated ISIS was successful in destroying old monuments and sites, also it still exists, it's called the Mossad >Gulf Arabs are secularizing They are more radical than ever due to foreign attacks >Christianity is spread faster than ever throughout the developing world The faithful are stronger but the normal civilian is extremely wary of the church nowadays. Go outside, amerimu- friend!
https://youtu.be/HMkQJo5sYRk parody of Norwegian black metal and first 'unblack metal' album, it was a solo album and the musician was anonymous (possible pun on Euronymous' name who was later murdered by Varg) and death threats sent to the record label.
>>24749 I absolutely love the Amish. I sometimes regret not being part of their culture.
>>24750 >Still doesn't mean you can make good music tomaytoe tomahtoe. Dunno, I kinda like it tbh. https://radiou.com/
My bible is being repaired. Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren. The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
I see that my brothers are putting sowing a beautiful garden together. I'll make sure I download and listen to these as I go about my work tomorrow. I'll leave a tiny poppy seed in gratitude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNXd0KQaYXg
Any other based presbyterian calvinistic church of scotland here who enjoys lineout music like gaelic psalms? my favourite tune is ballerma, psalm 40 goes so well as does psalm 23
>>25250 No but sounds interesting, I'll check it out. >t. gaelic heritage
>>25123 >My bible is being repaired. How'd it get damaged in the first place?
>>25261 Well I read it that's the problem. You may not read your bible but I do so it gets damaged bucko! Yeah, by the way, it never did get repaired in the end. While I'm here, I'm still working on my christian quiz board game and trust me it's going to be the ultimate christian board game. One day I will eventually make that Church simulator computer game. "I think I'll do an Anglican run this time" "Oh no the wolves have come in and three of your dioceses have voted to allow gay preachers!" https://www.britannica.com/topic/Anglican-Church-of-Canada But the board game has questions like: "Recite the first three verses of Genesis." Gen 1.1-.3 "What happened when Lot lingered in Sodom after being told to flee?" Gen 19.16 See the great thing is I'm not even using answer sheets, I just give the reference so the players can see the answer for themselves in their state approved KJV Bible. So I'm pretty excited about that and the map looks nice and there's a lot more to it than just answering question cards and rolling dice to move, I mean that is mainly it though. still have 1,115 questions left to make. And I'd actually like to do a church history or extra biblical category. You've read the Pilgrim's progress but everyone I suggest reading the sequel as well, "O the madness that has possessed thee and thy husband!" I've been struggling hardcore to find a hymn book. But I do suggest everyone go on ebay and get one for yourselves. "ebay?" Well yes you need to buy old books if you actually want to read. Modern books are all giant. Wherefore? Neither do I know it. But they used to make books decent sized.

And by struggle I mean I'm a perfectionist but I'm sure everyone else can find a hymn book they like. It's amazing how great John Newton's other hymns are outside Amazing Grace as well. In fact Amazing Grace isn't even included in most hymn books but his other work is, Amazing Grace seems to have become more popular I think in the 1900s. "Hymnal companion to the Book of Common Prayer" "Hymns Ancient and Modern" "Book of Common Praise" You can see all the versions of these on internet archive. If you go on ebay and look for a book of common prayer with a hymn book attached it'll be one of those that's attached. Although maybe I shouldn't suggest people buy them because I'm on the hunt. I actually just bought 5 of these pocket sized Common Prayer with Hymns books from ebay. So there's no much left at least in Canada. Someone lives in Southern Ontario you can have one of mine. I bought them all just to see which I would like best. But they all have or don't have different hymns that I want! Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise him, all creatures here below; Praise him above, ye heav'nly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Last thing, while I'm on the topic of the Anglican Church, which I love, though no longer exists. The Anglican Church near me has a website and they upload their sermons in text form... here is a picture of part of one of their sermons. Allow it to really sink in. The true Anglican Church from the 1600s has this to say: Good Lord deliver us. From all sedition, privy conspiracy and rebellion; from all false doctrine, heresy, and schism; from hardness of heart, and contempt of thy Word and Commandment. We beseech thee to hear us good Lord. That it may please thee to bring into the way of truth all such as have erred, and are deceived.
Are there any mast paced metal songs that glorify fighting and self sacrifice for the sake of Christianity? I was thinking of something like songs related, except completely sincere and unironic.

Clamavi de Profundis does amazing music! Here is Song of Kings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePYe3lqsu-g
I thought I posted in this thread, but I couldn't find my post. I worked a bit to re-find it as this "chan" was new to me. Anyway, I am a musician and I love all kinds of music. I was wondering if you guys could give me any feedback as to what christian music should have? I've been reading lots of scripture but there is something inexplicable that happens when brethren get together and chew on things. Anything you wish christian music had? What do you think christians need to be encouraged and built up with musically?
>>26199 I like the old hymns. Something with lyrics that align with sound doctrine and turn our minds toward God. As far as contemporary music goes, CityAlight is one of the better bands: https://youtu.be/roQovDZeAWE https://youtu.be/NnExXYToQUo I don't like when the music itself overshadows the message and distracts from God (e.g., hooks, guitar or drum solos).
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=3BBmKKKcrJA I've been enjoying children's Jesus songs, they're so nostalgic, only it's not a sad nostalgia, but a happy one. I've also found this Century XII Medieval Sacred song that supposedly only works with headphones but it worked on my TV https://yewtu.be/watch?v=k0M1gsvEC_s
>>26225 Thanks, good timing for the Christmas season.
>>26247 here another version just the plain chant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQGhpHZRhk0
>>14829 >Religious people are interested in what interests them rather than what is true. Look around you. All I see when I go to the city is decay, decay of morals, decay of families, decay of buildings (modern materials aren't exactly built to last), decay of everything. It's almost as if we've abandoned God (the maintenance man of everything). How can everything have popped out of nothing if leaving it alone for a a mere few decades results in all this? Who're the ones "interested in what interests them rather than what is true", then? We all need to repent, nobody on this earth is perfect, not me, not you, not anyone. We all like sheep have gone astray. We've all been NPCs at one point in our lives, as hard as a pill as that is to swallow. Think it over, I'm only replying with this because while we were still sinners, God loved us. God bless, anon.

>>24750 I didn't have to respond like that, sorry. But yeah there's some great Christian 80s bands I listened to as a kid, though there's not all that much theology in the ones that come to mind. We as humans tend to remember songs that make us feel good rather than ones with truth in them, I guess. Not that that's always the case.
