 Re:

Hi! ALL of you Rons out there!
I also enjoy the old Hymns, but there is some new music that has plenty of Word, and anointing also. One of the hardest things for me, after I became a Charismaniac, was adjusting to people much older than me " Getting Down" with the music. After some adjustment , I've come to the conclusion,; that everything written in Wesleys day probably wasn't all that scriptural, or anointed either; and much of our taste in music is more cultural than biblical. Everything in contemporary music certanly isn't, BUT some is, and I ain't too old to BOOGEY! :-D

 Re:

Hi Clutch and all
Here's a challenge for you. Find me something unscriptural in a Wesley hymn. They are bibline, wherever you cut they leak scripture. I'm not saying they were infallible, and I can think of one answer to my own challenge, but I'm going to keep it a secret.

We have some good hymnwriters alive today, and one who I think is the greatest hymnwriting gift to the church in 200 years, but they are a bit thin on the ground. Our little Wesley hymn has a preface written by an old preacher friend now with the Lord.

"HERE is a selection of the incomparable poems of the Wesley brothers, the poetry of which is as sublime as it is heavenly, and breathes from the eternal Spirit who inspired their hearts. In this realm they have no betters and few, if any, equals.
This book is a collection of long-loved and new- found truth, "treasures new and old', offered to lovers of Jesus our Lord.
Throughout the land hearts cry out for the realities herein set forth, and these hymns give expression to the unspeakable yearnings within in a manner which beautiful poetry and utmost piety unaided cannot accomplish, for many have produced such hymns but have failed of that "something' that so permeates the writings of the Wesleys as to place them in a class above all others.
The difference surely lies in the fact that these hymns were born in revival, and come from the Spirit of Life then breathing through the land.
Our Lord gave them to His Church, and wherever souls long for language of the Spirit these hymns will be sung by all so blessed as to know them.
Could heart-cries be formed and framed in better words than these, or man declare his faith more gloriously?"

 Re:

Hi Ron,
Like my old AV, Wesleys work has withstood the test of time. However, when each was first introduced, neither was voted" Most Likely TO SUCCEED".

 Re:

you notice, I'm staying out of this discussion. I'm working on a new brand image.

Proverbs 17:28 Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.
