Podcast: On the Objective – Harnessing Entertainment For The Kingdom Of God – Bill Chapman – 04.30.2019

2019.04.30

Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking welcomes back Bill Chapman for another discussion about the dynamics of entertainment media and how what was designed for evil can be turned for good by the power of God. The discussion is motivated by the release of Unplanned, a movie that is helping to move the needle in the conversation about abortion and infanticide in this nation. Many Americans won’t read a book or follow an abstract argument, but almost everyone can be touched by a true story presented in an effective manner. There are so many miraculous testimonies of Jesus available for this generation, and they can help facilitate the dramatic harvest that the Lord deserves. Thanks for joining us On the Objective!

Podcast: On the Objective – Patriot Music Network – Ken Hall – 08.28.2018

PatriotMusicNetwork

Join us On the Objective as your host Steven Menking welcomes debut guest Ken Hall for a discussion about his passion for music and the Patriot Music Network. The enemies of God have long known that music is capable of influencing both individuals and the broader culture in powerful ways. Christians should understand this principle from our own experiences with worship, hymns, psalms, and our own lives. Music is powerful. What if there was a source of music that spoke about current events from a Christian conservative point of view in a way that’s professional, entertaining, and glorifying to God? Ken is creating that kind of music right now at Patriot Music Network. Please support his work and get the word out. Thanks again for joining us on this episode of On the Objective!

Podcast: The Amateur Society – Life Is A Symphony

Symphony

We often overlook the importance of music in our lives. The structures of sound and pattern are so interwoven with our consciousness that we simply breeze past them without bothering to fully investigate or appreciate their significance. This discussion provides an opportunity to reflect on what music is and what functions it serves. We typically don’t ask these questions on a regular basis, but upon further examination they prove to be immensely valuable and inextricably intertwined with several of the most important aspects of our existence.

Join us as we investigate the heart of music and it’s overall impact from physics to sociology. Why is music among the most primordial aspects of human culture? Why do we gravitate towards certain types of music? How can we better understand and esteem its value? What impact could a broader and deeper perspective of music have? Is life truly a symphony?

Pastor Mike Spaulding – What Is The Purpose Of Music In Christian Worship?

christianmusic

That is a loaded question for sure. Modern Christians have strong convictions when it comes to so-called worship music in the church. I say “so-called” because Christian worship has become almost exclusively thought of in terms of “worship” music. It is now believed that worship music is the vehicle for ushering worshippers into the presence of God.  This belief is a rather recent evolution in church thinking. Let me explain.

It is not uncommon today to hear those hired to lead congregations in corporate worship, say something along the lines of this – “Join us Sunday morning for an inspiring time of worship where you will enter into the presence of God.” Here is an actual flyer from a church that promised all who attend would encounter God. It said in part:

“Join us for dynamic teaching to set you on the right path, and inspiring worship where you can meet God and receive the energy and love you need to be a mover and shaker in today’s world. Alongside our teaching program are worship events which put you in touch with the power and love of God.”

This kind of superficial sales and marketing is unbiblical to the core. What kind of church leadership would make such an outlandish claim that everyone who attends will receive the energy and love they need to be successful in life, not to mention that their church staff has the ability to put people in touch with God’s power and love? This is nothing more than new age witchcraft.
