“Okay, I feel like I need to say something… I have not watched the videos but I have looked through the website and I read all the positive comments in the Guest Book. There is something that is bothering me… Where’s the love? Music is powerful. It was meant to be, God created it. And it can be used positively or negatively. And while there are those artists out there that outwardly use their talents to promote something that would be considered ungodly there are still others in the industry that are doing it because they simply want to use their gifts. It seems to me that you are lumping everyone in the same catagory and that is judgment. That is not love. That is not the grace of God. I believe in speaking up against something that is incorrect (for example, the lyrics of a song, or the actions of a performer). But I believe it is wrong to attack the individuals. And you can sit there and tell me that I am being ignorant to the tactics of Satan but I do not see anyone reaching out and building relationships with anyone in the music industry. I didn’t notice any focus on loving them on this site. All I see is a website/ministry that is pointing fingers. I think it is great that you want to stop the darkness from taking over the light but the True Light will shine more powerfully where there is True Love. And I am talking about a love for the ‘lost’, a love that looks beyond what they are saying and sees the God given talents and destiny in Him that is not being fulfilled. Let me say here that I am not advocating listening to secular music. Like I stated earlier, music is powerful. You need to walk wisely and with discernment regarding anything you hear. The Lord has burdened my heart for an industry that the church has continually scolded and attacked. We would rather sit on the high mountain and shout down to them and say they are wrong. We’d rather build a business/ministry and a name for ourselves. We’d prefer to look holy and righteous and expect them to change and climb up the mountain than to get ourselves a little dirty and go love them where they are, showing them there is a better path to take; a path that they can still use their talent on but it can be used to the fullness by worshiping the Gift Giver with it. Hope I don’t sound too harsh. Sorry, if I do. I am just passionate about the arts. And the ‘church’ has continually shut it’s doors to them (the arts) which grieves my heart. Perhaps if there was a place for these artist to use their talents (beyond the ‘christian music industry’ thing) to worship God and bring Him glory then they wouldn’t be so easily persuaded to use them other ways. Maybe if they had a place to create new sounds they wouldn’t be lured to a place that lets them use their talent freely. And perhaps if more believers out there were extending a loving hand, full of life, hope, truth and grace… than things would change. But right now I am sure they only see condemnation and limitations when they should see compassion and liberty. Thanks for letting me share my heart. Hope it sheds some light and gives a new perspective to the work you are doing. PEACE! Guy”
Good Fight’s Response:
Guy, you mentioned, you have not yet watched our video expose – They Sold Their Souls for Rock n Roll. I’m confident that after viewing it your opinion as to “where’s the love” will change. Please know this, we at Good Fight Ministries diligently intercede for the many artists we expose. We pray constantly that they would take heed the warnings and turn from their lives of sin and rebellion towards God (watch the many free video clips in our Theater), thus putting a stop to the ungodly influences they are having on the masses. At the same time also know that we, as Christians, are called to expose these unrepentant individuals…
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them." –Ephesians 5:11
Our website primarily deals with exposing artists and celebrities who for the most part have voiced their rejection of God, Jesus, Godly principles, the bible, etc. Usually if they do not embrace true Christianity they typically hold to things such as Satanism, New Age thought, and ideas/teachings contrary to scripture. The bible says…
"The wicked are far from salvation, for they do not bother with your principles." –Psalm 119:155
In other words, those who reject God can end up with hardened hearts. Thus they find it harder to turn to the Lord. Therefore the need to warn people, Christian or not, is necessary and of course biblical (2 Timothy 4:2, Romans 16:17-18, Titus 1:9, Jude 3-4, Ezekiel 33:6).
I know our website, which consists of exposés and warnings, may be hard for many people to swallow. However, so were Jesus’ warnings…
"…Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" –Matthew 4:17
"I tell you but unless you repent you will all likewise perish" –John 13:3
In fact, read John chapter 8 and read how Jesus dealt with the Pharisees that were rejecting Him. We look forward to hearing from you again.
