Well, that didn't take long, did it?

But, in all seriousness, I know people that don't like the music simply because these people aren't Apostolic, they don't appear to have the Holy Ghost, they don't adhere to certain modesty principles, and so forth. And honestly I can understand that view. I was once good friends with a guy who felt conviction over his music. He felt, as a Holy Ghost-filled Christian, that God didn't want him to listen to any singing, whether it be self-described gospel, if the singers involved didn't have the Holy Ghost and spoke in tongues. That seems strict, but it was a personal conviction he felt God had impressed on his life. While I didn't understand it entirely, I did my best to respect it.

From a more personal view, I don't mind watching these Gaither-type videos because they are singing about Jesus. Now, they do have some songs that try and sneak the Trinity in on you, so those I'll stir away from. But there are many songs these people have written and sing in these videos that are God-given and anointed by the Holy Ghost. Dottie Rambo, who was apparently raised in the UPC, wrote a multitude of songs that are heart-felt and make one feel the Lord. Her songs are frequently sang by the Gaithers.

Re: Gaither Homecoming Videos

There is one song that the Gaither Vocal Band sings called "Alpha and Omega". I use to love that song as a child, especially the chorus. But the last line in the rather lengthy chorus refers to Jesus as "the second person in the Trinity". That ONE LINE is the only lie in the song. All the other titles all reference Jesus, but this is the only one that is false. I won't even listen to the song because I'm worried that might get into my spirit.

This is really a rare occurrence though. Most of the music they sing on these videos are about God and speak truth.

Also like watching Mark Lowry's live streams he does on Monday evening. For all the jokes and fun he makes of Apostolics, he sure has a lot of them on to sing for him.
I enjoy his lives too! He had Nancy Grandquist and her husband on the other day!

Yes. He's had Nancy Grandquist on there last week and he had Vonnie Lopez on there a few months ago. He's had a few Apostolics on his live streams.

He has maintained a very long friendship with sis. Karen Harding.

Re: Gaither Homecoming Videos

Mark Lowry is a pretty funny guy. He's got jokes about Pentecostals and Charismatics in his routines. They're usually funny.

Gotta have a sense of humor.

He ought to know. Sis Harding has talked doctrine with him at breakfast for many years. His jokes maintain a surface understanding, but he knows the deal.

He also says that the royalties Mary Did You Know literally pays his bills.

In fact, the Gaither group is a literal who's who of regressed apostolics.

It's like the song "Holy, Holy, Holy". Most of the song is really quite beautiful, but that one portion, "god in three persons, blessed trinity" is a problem. I usually sing over that line with "God in Christ Jesus, blessed deity" if I'm listening to it, but most of the time I don't listen to songs that are obviously not Biblical.

That's the issue. They sometimes have songs with lyrics that are clearly not Biblical. Almost all of their songs are quite beautiful to the ear, but every once in a while, they'll sneak some heresy in there.
