This site is great!
That Scotland guy is particularly disturbing. Unbelievable...
Indeed. I couldn't help but giggle when he started singing like a drunkard (use of secular music).
What!? I reckon that if you no longer have to fear Hell, you have been "Saved" after all, then you have nothing better to do than to listen to some fellow sing secular songs about the evils of "religion."
In my encounters with other Christian's, I can sympathize to a small extent with some of the Prot. preachers. I have had to put up with a regular, NO Mass attending Catholic, and I got to the point with this one where I really said to myself that I could sympathize with those who left the Church because Her members point fingers at everyone else, when they themselves were in no position to talk. It is so frustrating, this self-righteousness. Unless you have had to go through it, it is very hard to understand and relate to!
Did you let that one play all the way through and hear him talk to the crowd about "when we were Christians" -- as if their being "Christians" was in the past?
Actually, I think that guy is literally drunk. Either that, or he's doing his best "Arthur" impersonation.
This stuff gives me the creeps. Has anybody besides me seen similar stuff in the N.O.? In my diocese the priest that led this kind of charismatic stuff was also the director of vocations. They treat it like an 8th sacrament or something.
I once read an article in CFN called "Holy Annoinking." Does anyone know if it is available online? I couldn't find it.
For all their good, the Stubenville Youth Confrences have their fair share. At Adoration, one can hear hystraical laughing and crying, people being taken out on stretchers. There was even "talking in tongues," none of which ever seemed like it was a real language. I understand for many such gatherings are their first real encounter with God, and as such is not likely to be a mellow expirence, but I also was never able to get out of my mind that some actions were not genuine.
