My parents are staunch protestants. They sent me the Catholic Chronicles by Keith Green and I have been working on a reply/refutation.
Have you heard of these before? What do you think? I'd appreciate any input/ideas, and any feedback on my reply/refutation.
So far I've just replied to the first Chronicle. I am currently working on the second.
P.S. You can see the original Chronicles at: http://www.gracegems.org/7/catholic_chronicles.htm
I posted this in the Beach Boy thread in the Pub:
That is a great point, I've been exposed to Christian Rock for a good while (1981) and there are a few notables such as Kieth Green who came out with the "Catholic Chronicles". This was an Anti-Catholic publication whom one time friend, John Michael Talbot, tried to reason with Kieth Green. Green would not back down and the two had it out during a christian music festival. John Michael Talbot would offer his guitar as a peace offering. Unfortunitely and tragically, later that night Keith and two daughters were killed in a plane crash. It was very sad.
John Michael Talbot is a convert to the Catholic Faith and had a history of anti-Catholic beliefs. I can see how Keith would have lost contact when John became Catholic. John Michael Talbot would become an accomplished Christian musician for the Catholic Faith. I had the great opportunity to meet with him at Euricka Springs Arkansas at his Little Portions community. It was a great time as we spoke about music. I asked him if he felt that it was important for him to become Catholic. He replied yes. He gave me some great advice and cautioned me to love those whom I speak against. I must be willing to die for them. The idea being that God can change their condition.
DC Talk in the video, "Jesus Freak" is strongly pro-Catholic. I can go on and on with this, but I will agree that if someone is pushing something anti-Catholic, I would view them in the same way as any secular band who pushes anti-Catholic lyrics. Sex outside of marriage is anti-Catholic and pro-hedonism. Living in America today, this is common place! We have allowed it!
