This site has NEVER asked for donations and I am not asking for any now. However, I am asking you to consider supporting another ministry; APOLOGETIX. Apologetix is a great group that has been ministering to people with their music since at least 1992. Not just any people, but young folks, our kids, our children with Christian "parody" renditions of popular secular songs.
This site has featured Apologetix several times including a concert review I posted in 2008 -- http://thekingdomcome.com/apologetix_review
Thekingdomcome.com has also featured Apologetix in our "Parody Player" which contains 174 songs (mainly by Randy Hyde) http://thekingdomcome.com/node/135 and in several videos on Youtube.
So, please consider sending a donation to Apologetix. Pray about it and if you feel led, by all means help them out. What follows is a letter from Apologetix's lead singer, J. Jackson:
When Christians come together, song is often the result be it in congregational worship of God or in small fellowships. Christianity has a rich heritage of giving the world inspiring hymns. Another perhaps almost forgotten Christian heritage is exclusive psalmody, or the singing only of the psalms without musical accompaniment. Some Christians debate that any other form of worship of God in song is actually unbiblical and disrespectful to God (see references). Whereas other Christians at least prefer to sing the psalms and without instrumentation because singing only the psalms;
A friend of mine heard that I was an exclusive psalmist and asked if I could point out a place on the Internet where he could listen to psalms in the background as he surfed the net. I looked high and low and found no place except for one where all the psalms were assembled in one place and sung a cappella. The one place is genevanpsalter.com, a great site by Michael Owens who does a fantastic job. But even on the Genevan Psalter, he doesn't have a player to simply automatically play.
Well, I have assembled in one place, on an automatic player Mr. Owens' singing along with about 15 other a cappella versions by other singers (for variety) for your enjoyment and edification. Below (click the 'read more' link) you will find the player which should begin on its own or you can advance to your favorite psalm. Also you will find a link to an online Bible with several translations of the psalms side-by-side for your studies.
God bless and keep you.
Every once in a while I am asked to review an article, a book, or a CD. I was honored to receive a request to review a yet to be released Christian music CD. It is called "Playing in the Water" and features the gentleman who perhaps is better known as the vocalist and musician for the Internet-famous song, "Reformation Polka" -- Jeremy Fowler-Lindemulder aka "Fugli" (see interview). I have a copy of the master, so my critiques may become moot once final production is met. I will list the name of the song and my review of it in a few short sentences.
Dear Lord, I am 41 years old. I have so far spent my time on this earth, being the husband of one wife, the father of one child. I have endeavored to live my life by biblical precepts, failing at times as all sinners are apt. I have employed the biblical ethic of doing all things in an orderly manner. Even in my battles with heretics, though they may call me a "jerk" or whatever names they like, even there I have tried to conduct myself with ingetrity...because it is not my name which suffers, as I have no name. It is the name of Christ Jesus, our Lord and King. There is shame when we speak beyond and when we don't speak when needed.
