Re: Ministry Guitarist Mike Scaccia Dies After Onstage Collapse
I am in agreement with judging a book by its cover type of thing...I went through a few rough times in my life that were reflected in the music I listened to, especially as a teenager. Music helped me cope. The cds I had would have prolly made some people yak Ministry was probably among one of the "tamer" bands I listened to. chuckle

Mike Scaccia was a talented musician, I know that, but sadly don't know much about him or his life, except through the music he made.

Lighten up, Judgy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8788578


Lot of "judgy" folks on this thread. A man lost his life and all they can do is preach. It's not actually very Christian-like, now is it? "So what" (pun intended, favorite Ministry song) if they don't like the music. Really kind of sad, it shows you internet trolls come in all denominations.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30722863


"Judgy"? No! Absolutely not! In fact, Scripture is clear we are not supposed to judge those in the world! I (respectfully) think you might be missing the bigger picture. Yes! A man died...as is appointed to all of us! The problem is this man is, right now, very likely experiancing regret that is beyond our imagination! If this guy is where his life suggests he is...and given the opportunity, he would come back from the dead to apologize and tell us to devote the whole of our hearts to Jesus Christ!

God Is: Faithful, Just AND SEVERE!

Lean not on your own understanding and surrender to The Most High God!

We most certainly are supposed to judge, but not to condemn anyone. If we don't judge right from wrong and good from evil, who will?! Why do you think that we are supposed to remove the beam from our own eye first? Then what? Judge rightly.

Was it really the point of Jesus's life and death and resurrection
that we are not supposed to judge between right and wrong
and make no distinction of good from evil?

Christians have been so easily manipulated

that a majority of today's cultural Christians

think that they are religiously instructed NOT to call out evil, as that would be judging... and we're not supposed to judge. You're not supposed to judge!

They hear "judge not," because they are told, but read no further... and do as they're told...

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30611420


Maybe we are splitting hairs here - I agree we are to judge right from wrong...but the context I keep coming back to is this:

1Cor 5:12 For what is it to me to also judge those who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?

No doubt we are to judge eachother...but the world...God will judge them!

1Cor 5:13 But God judges those who are outside. Therefore put out from you the evil one.

Nevertheless...thanks for who you are and what you do in His Holy Name!

Praise God!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8788578


Truly stated with respect...this is *not* a prop!

Most people, including most that *think* they are Christian, are going to hear the words:

"...depart from Me you who worked iniquity."

What most don't understand is that God is also *Just* and *Severe*!

Christianity is not an absurd relationship where one "agrees" that Jesus Is Lord!

A relationship with Jesus *DEMANDS* the whole of ones heart...full and total committment to Him...otherwise, you're lost!

Mat 7:21-23 Not everyone who says to Me, Lord! Lord! shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works? And then I will say to them I never knew you! Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!


Luk 14:33 It is the same for each of you. You must leave everything you have to follow me. If not, you cannot be my follower.

Luk 14:28-35 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it; lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish. Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not first sit down and consult whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. So then, everyone of you who does not forsake all he has, he cannot be My disciple. Salt is good, but if the salt has become tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned? It is not fit for the land, nor for manure, but men throw it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.


This passage is *radical* to say the least!

Jesus is not interested in a partial commitment - those that live in a partial commitment to Jesus Christ lie themselves into eternal damnation!

Think about it...here Jesus is saying that those that live in a partial commitment to Him...are not even good enough to throw into a pile of crap! At least a pile of crap has usefulness to it as it can be used as manure!
