    Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. - Plato

    I have some sympathy about wanting to not be like a conventional church, but mixed feelings about embracing the darker side of metal. Death and misery are things that a real faith in Jesus would be setting people free from, rather than encouraging them toward. Having said that, this IS a BBC news article, and may not be exactly presenting an accurate representation of what they're doing in order to create a bit more 'newsworthiness'.

    I've been happy to use Vs and my Washburn A20 in church, and no-one ever seemed to mind.

      To me, this seems like the very sort of Christian gathering that Christ would have attended.

    Reminds me of these guys: http://www.scumoftheearth.net/SOTEC/Welcome.html

     

    Phil 1:15-18

    15 Some indeed preach Christ from envy and rivalry, but others from good will. 16 The latter do it out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17 The former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely but thinking to afflict me in my imprisonment. 18 What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice.

    / wp's morning office theology 


    FWIW, as a young wanderer, I would have been totally into this.  It's a revelation to have hope preached in your language, even if that language is hopelessness.  Sometimes life's path takes us through dark woods.

      If religions didn't market themselves according to the times and to the people in their area, they would never grow. Just seems logical to me.

          Religion is for people who are afraid to die or walk alone, if you can let go of this fear, you are truly on your way to becoming a spiritual being.
