Kevin Swanson steps into the Hip Hop Kerfluffle that appears to have interrupted the progress of Christendom in the West, at least if you happen to play on the Internet. As we define ourselves, are we more defined by the people we do not like or by the people (or person) that we do like? Kevin Swanson takes a look at the general negativity of the Internet and discusses what to do about it.
Great Sermon! hmm is it possible that rap/ hip hop is similar to a form of COUNTRY MUSIC..? except the grabbing of crotch.
remember the JOHNNY CASH song A BOY NAMED SUE? did he SING or RAP the 'melody' and played the guitar throughout
I say this because many blacks, (since I am one, I could say this) came from the old south, and early rappers never sang, but 'talked' just like SQUARE DANCE CALLERS through the music. In the late 70s, when DISCO started to die, they had to think of something else, that was cheap and didn't require a complete band. Even early rappers were DISCO DJs and didn't get on stage like modern rappers
Its possible that young people are getting dangerous (for men) antidepressants because of the misuse of their sexuality and the soul ties that ensues--80% of the wild men who shot up buildings and people were on these, starting with COLUMBINE High School while women on them tend to not have this problem, but are without a boyfriend or husband, unlike previous generations. They even use the term SINGLE when they are without a boyfriend when the previous generations would say they are single until they are MARRIED, NOT IN LIMBO (similar to a 14-25 yo).. in fact, its not a good way to raise a family for more than one generation

Super List! Thanks for the list Kevin! If I mention listening to a sermon by one of the Sproul clan to someone of my church family, the eyes roll and suddenly something seems stuck in their throat. I'm so sick of it. We cry "Unity!" But what those people generally mean is "Rally to me, you sinners!" God leads my family and has used many people to show us His truths - there might even be a few of them on your list! ;)

Great Sermon! Internet:
people think they are shnooks if they dont have a good time, and think their friends are having it better from their profile
another problem, when people use their slashtags, or 'sharps' to condemn others
another problem, when people punch others, think its funny, and record it
when people take doctored pictures, or stick their picture on another persons head, thanks to PHOTOCHOP...
I SAY THIS because no one ever talks to one another anymore--and don't forget txtn, which is making young people try to txt a business letter for a new job...? could millenials be the last generation?
