Is it me or did anyone else get "the message" that Drew was relaying to us today?

... Our pastor is bad, he missed church and only the Devil would do something like that....

That's what I got from it. I totally missed the whole concept of Jesus being tempted by the devil. I only got the point of how our pastor is missing church.

Notice how Drew made the comment, ".. we will see if I will be doing this more often," before he started?

I knew from day one that this man was up to no good. He's a snake in the grass and I could see that his only interest was to take over this church.

Drew, how come we didn't pray for our pastor today? How come you didn't mention him in our prayer and wish him and his family well and to guide them back home to our church safely?

Perhaps you were too busy working on your own wicked itinerary. Lastly, do you have children? It is odd that you have a BIG INTEREST in our children when you don't have any of your own. Kind of makes me wonder....

I say we run you off. Granted the band is a lot better with you but do we really need a better band?

Don't get me wrong, he seems to be a nice guy but then again, like he said today, "the devil is sometimes a nice guy."

anything posted about a church on here is not a good idea-----always non believers who get on here and run it in the ground----my advice to you is pray instead of posting on topix, sounds like the devil has a hold of you to or you would be praying instead of starting something on topix

Hey everyone just wanted to let you know even though I dont get to attend this church all of the time it is a great church... They are very bible based and have lots of programs to help people... I know when I was down and out because of things going on in my life they were there to pray for me and help guide me through the rough times... Thank You Lifesong church for giving your time for us at the shelter...

You should come to bridges Christian church in Russell. It's an amazing church family with lots of activities for everyone. We would love to have you!

I left there for more then one reason. That church has broken up more marriages then it's saved. That said, the girls, I won't say ladies, because these same girls are there on Sunday dressed liked they just came in from a Saturday night date and looking for another one for that day or the next week. Another reason, not only myself, but I know others that have left is most of the people that go there are so phony. They smile to your face and talk about you behind your back. Hypocrites! This church isn't founded on God, Jesus, or the Bible, it's founded on I'll go here so other people will think I'm a good person and I go to church on Sunday. Gee, I'm a swell person and you will got to hell, because I'm better then you. I encourage you to go! I encourage you accept the fact that someone, a pastor, or otherwise, says sometimes the devil is a nice guy. Damn right he's a nice guy. He let's you do whatever you want, without holding you accountable, and without judging you. I'd rather take my chances and burn or rot in hell, then sit in that church and burn with the rest of the low life pricks and their slut wives or girlfriends. Fake bunch! I feel sorry for families that take their kids their and their kids have to listen to a bunch of bs that's not in the Bible, not God's will for a church and to be force feed the s:*t these so called responsible Christian adults feed them. Just wait until these kids get old enough to realize what they have been feed was a lie and mommy or daddy took me there out of their own guilt. These adults will be proud when their child's life ends up more screwed up then those people that go their trying to say or think they now are saved, forgiven, and perfect from their past transgressions. What a joke. And, please, some wise ass, don't comeback and say, I'll pray for you. Don't! Pray for your own damn self, you need them more then me.

You TOTALLY missed the ENTIRE point of Drew's message! Drew's message was awesome! And just to clarify, DREW'S MESSAGE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH KEITH. NOTHING! I don't think you listened to anything he said, you just concentrated on the fact that Keith wasn't there. He is on vacation. That's it. And this vacation has probably been planned for a very long time. That was stated very clearly at the beginning of the service. Drew's comment about preaching again was a joke. He meant he wouldn't be filling in for Keith again if he did a bad job. I mean, you probably noticed he was kind of nervous at the beginning. He was just trying to lighten the mood and get more comfortable.

Drew's point was that every decision we make leads us closer to or farther from Christ. The farther we are from Christ, the easier it is to make bad decisions and give into temptation. Not sure how you didn't understand that or why you would think this had anything to do with Keith not being there? My suggestion to you is that you pray for a new and pure heart on the matter and re-watch the sermon on LifeSongLife.com .

If you have a problem with Drew, you should confront him about it personally and privately, not post it on topix. He is a great, Godly man and I'm sure he would love to talk and pray through it with you. That would have been a much more Christlike way to handle it, rather that posting it on a gossip site where for others to see. You have now corrupted others' view of LifeSong, Drew, and probably Christians as a whole.

I have been going to LifeSong since the beginning. It is a wonderful church, but it's not for everyone. No church is and no church is perfect. If you don't like what is going on at LifeSong, you should pray about if you're where God wants you to be. But please, stop posting things on topix about LifeSong or any other church. There is no point. It only tears down. We should be building each other up.

@ lifesong member... You judge and are very hypocritical yourself. For someone who claims to be a member, all I hear is hate and cursing, people like you are EXACTLY why I don't go to church. Quit judging others, and start looking at yourself on what needs to be fixed. You don't have to be perfect to go to church, you should go to church because you are imperfect. It shouldn't matter what you wear, should only matter that you're THERE. Listening to whatever message God has directed your pastor to bring. Marriages are broken long before they ever see some young girl dressed like they are out on a Saturday night. If that is all it took, the marriage was in trouble already. QUIT BLAMING OTHERS.

I am going to do something very rarely done on this site, post my name. I am Dana Biggs and a faithful Member of LifeSong. I am also very proud to wear my Christian Banner for all to see. The Bible assures us of the Do's and Don't without falter. It paints the perfect picture of the Lord, Jesus Christ and what He would do and not do. I am sure that anything of confusion, malice and blatent anger is not of the Father!! God is the author of Love and he has sent His Son as human form to show us the way. Then He left the Holy Spirit to guide us daily in all we do. For the person/persons that have these negative aspects so strong, they felt compeled to share them on this Gossip Forum. I feel that I must respond. LifeSong may or maynot be the church for you. I would tell you to try different places of worship. But the most important factors is whom you worship. It is not a Pastor, Preacher, Teacher or Song Leader/Band member... It is the Heavenly Father. Whom is found only through Jesus Christ, His only Son that died for yours and my sins. We are all called to Battle; we need to wear the Armour of the Lord. Know Scripture it is our Sword. Know that we will not always see eye to eye on many things,but may we agree to disagree on different points. If troubled go to your Brother/Sister, in Love, as the Scripture tells you. If offended then possibly soul searchering will help and again the scripture has many solution to this topic. It is very hard for me to believe that these posting came from a Brother/Sister in Christ, but if they did I beg of you to open your Bible read and study, especially the New Testament. Matthew is great in the solving of disputes.The parabale s are great teaching values and the Beatitudes are Blunt! It truly saddens me to see the names of my church family BASHED for doing God's Will. But I assume that just as those were prosecuted for their Faith in Bible times, God's people are still being prosecuted.(If our Lord can be crucified in the same township that laid palms and garments down only days before.) Then I have to believe that God is going to use this too. His Glory will prevail and that whatever Satan thought was accomplished was once again foiled! I pray for the Brother/Sister that is so upset,they felt the need to make accusatory and hurtful statement.(And in my opinion FALSE.) I pray that God sends peace and decernmet to those hurt by the postings. If you are unhappy in the church you attend then by all means find another one. But to hurt those whom have shown nothing but God's grace is just shameful. For anyone reading this, and questions the integretity and values of LifeSong, I ask of you to please check it out for yourself and do not listen to utter tripe. It is Bible based with Core Values, Maybe unconventional to the old time religion we grew up with. Baptist Doctrine and mission minded. But the mission is in our own back door as well as foreign places like Guatemala.#1 Core Value: ITS NOT ABOUT ME!! God Forgive the misunderstands and narrow-minded ways and that Your Truth and Light shines first and foremost. Ungird the LifeSong Church Family and Leaders, May the Sheild of Faith and the Helmet of Salvation and the Breat plate of Righteousness deflect the enemies arrows. May our ready feet do your bidding and may healing be accomplished. AMEN

Titus

9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10 Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. 11 You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.

Just sayin'

Proverbs
16:28 A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close
friends.
Ephisians
16:28 A perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close
friends.
Titus
3:1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be
obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good,
2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true
humility toward all men.
1 Peter 1:22-2:3
22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.[b] 23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,
“All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.”[c]
And this is the word that was preached to you.

1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Well

I went to live song for a while, I think Drew was really nice and I loved how Keith preached. I ended up leaving Lifesong because to me the church was too big I was used to smaller churched, I can't bash them though, they were good, I just like more of the smaller home-like feel of tiny churches, but if you like bigger churches I wouldn't take Lifesong off the list of ones to try just because of something posted on topix..

I remember when this church first opened, haven't heard much about them since though. Not too big of a lifesong fan. I still remember the comments in the paper complaining about other churches in the area not helping them out at first by giving them money.

I used to go to Lifesong. I haven't been in a while, but it's nothing the church did. I always thought Lifesong was great. They have tried to think of every reason people don't go to church and meet those needs. There is still room for them to grow in many areas and are always wanting input on what suggestions people have. For you all that criticize a church or it's people, you aren't very Christian-like. The world is full of hypocrites and so is Ashland. If you are going to go to church, believe in God, believe the word, then you have to live that way, not going around talking about people behind their backs, partying on your "off days" from church, and acting like the devil yourself.

If this is a real post and you have based attending this church just upon a topix post you need more prayers than you think.

Church members of this church are bat shit crazy like members of other churches. Wake up people! Churches are out to make money and make no mistake this is a business. If you want to believe in a supreme being feel free to do so, but remember that you do not need a church for that purpose. Even Jesus preached against churches and praying in public. Several people will be upset about this post, however they can not deny the fact that even Jesus who they claim to be their savior preached against praying in public. Religion should be private.

Jesus didn't preach against the church... And about praying in public it was doing so in a showy attention getting way to get others to notice that was something not to do ... Not praying as a group of believers in a public setting. The church (or at least mine) makes no profit so it seems hard to consider it a business
