I'm confused about the "invasion" thing. I want to know who is going & what it's all about. I read about it in the paper, it sounds a little weird but maybe fun. I think they have some fights going on & some motorcycle stuff.

I can't zoom in at all while recording video with my cell. I saw ppeople with ipads and other tablets getting great video of Love and Death's performance last night. Please would anyone who was there and got great video please email it to me or if the video file is to large, share it with me using dropbox or something similar. My email is [email protected] I thought they were really super and i would love to have good video from last night. At least over 100 people got baptised before Love and Death began to play and after the last song, it was well over 100 people lined up at the pool for baptism. So well over 200 people got baptised last night at this event. Any church a person attends on a regular basis knows if you average it out, maybe one to three people a week are baptised. They brought over 200 people to be baptised at this event last night. And to think that so many of these churches tried to boycott and have this event shut down before it even began. I think it shows a little bit of closed mindness on the church's part, maybe even a little hatred towards a certain group of people just like racism. It really shows a lot about the people who tried to boycott and shut this down before it even began. Yet, you probably won't see those same people out on the street trying to help the drug addicts, i believe Invasion did more last night to help former past and present drug addicts, Invasion did more last night to help that type of people, than all these churches combined do in a whole year. Each generation of kids evolve and change, can you imagine a kid with tattoos all over their arms, neck and piercings going to a local church around here and sitting in for service regularly? These older generations look at you like you are some kind of freak, some won't admit it but they are afraid of you from your appearance alone and some just hate and despise you so much but yet they call theirself a christian. Jesus endured the same type of talk and treatment from the higher ups and well off upper class of people who thought it was disgusting and wrong when they saw jesus spending so much time preaching to the lower class people, the poor. I believe these people who boycotted this event and tried to stop it are the same way. Just like back then in jesus's time, they didnt get and understand how it was like to live poor and the hardships and sufferings from it. These people who boycotted and tried to stop this event, don't understand how it is like to be a drug addict and the experiences and bad things that go along with it do to a person. THEY JUST DONT GET IT!! I hope last night's event opens their eyes a little. Drug addicts will listen and pay a lot more attention to the word coming from a former drug addict than they will from a person who never was a drug addict. I hope this will lead to some changes in people's views around here. GOD BLESS US ALL!!

Praise The Lord!!! That is wonderful! > BUT < What happens to these people now?? Today and tomorrow and the day after that? Where do they go? To these same churches that wanted the event shut down?? That's the part that worries me. What happens to them now? It would be awesome if the Lord leads one of them to begin a church/a ministry to help these folks in our area that truly need it most.

I'm liberal and struggle with my Christianity. I've always believed that, yes, you can be both. But, Richlands is really the hardest town I've ever been in to hold onto such beliefs. And, i dont feel welcome in 98% of the churches (yes, there are good ones). It is my opinion that if this event kept kids off the street, away from drugs and other vices, then it is a GOOD thing. Positive. Besides that, there is so much hypocrisy in these small, narrow-minded churches in richlands that you don't even want to get started on it.

Noone was crying you a river to begin with!! And you're most definitely wrong about death as the ONLY way off drugs. I've beem off drugs for over 13 years, i'm living proof quitting and staying clean is a choice!!

It seemed to me like a positive event, though I didn't attend. Everyone has their right to free speech, both the event organizers/attendees and the boycotters. The problem is the people who appreciate that free speech aren't the boycotters. Personally, I think that something of this nature is great for this town. If pastors don't like it, they don't have to attend. Honestly, from what I've read, the band member from korn has lived a life of sin but has now given his life to a faith he believes in. What's so wrong with that!?

I saw on fb that the daughter of a local minister prayed for rain, bad weather, devastation, whatever at the invasion... That's real Christian blessings and faith right there...

"please help" that was an awesome post. Sounds like this thing was a success although I don't know where these kids are supposed to go now b/c they will not feel welcome at any church that I know of around here...anyway, thank you for the wonderful post.

If you attended Invasion and got saved, there are several pastors that backed it and will be glad to have you. Those that backed it were Seth White, Doug Allen, Barry Absher, Raven Assembly and Destiny Ministries. go to one of these and they will help you Community Heights Baptist and the United Methodist Church were supporters also
