Who decides what is pleasing to God as far as church music goes? Your comments have a hint of racism in them. God created music so that all people of all cultures could praise and worship Him in spirit and in truth. I should not condemn my brothers if they choose to praise Him with hillybilly music! As long as the Anointing of God is present, and Jesus is lifted up without any ambiguity, God will be pleased. -- Alvin Smith -- To unsubscribe, send ANY message to: pastorsforum-unsubscribe@...
