Lloyd the Llink Llist Llama makes his 5th annual appearance. Can Spring be far behind?

There’s about a year’s worth of Link Lists that direct you to pages at Out of Ur and Parse (when they owned first rights to this weekly roundup) which no longer exist. Let me know if you’d like to track down a particular story, and I’ll post the full set of links for that week.

 

Orange Church of God - Repent Now

  1. Comments are closed on that last Chris Tomlin link; that post was put up in 2009! I think guys like Chris Tomlin and Matt Redman are what’s right about modern praise and worship music. I can get up on Sunday morning with an acoustic guitar and actually sing many of the songs they write. (I sang Good Father just this past Sunday.) Worship is something we are meant to do together, not pay a group of professionals to do it for us while we watch.

    Tomlin has released 30 albums over the course of his career. I couldn’t find a discography of Stackhouse tunes. If you can’t do a better job yourself, pointing out other people’s flaws is no more than complaining. He thinks we need to do much, much better. I feel compared to some of the worthless drivel CCM has produced, particularly in the 80’s and early 90’s, Tomlin is much, much better.

    • I appreciate what you’re saying. Unfortunately, the link list has some standards, and one of them is we don’t post 2009 items in 2016. I don’t know how that got overlooked — I think someone Tweeted it — but I’m deleting the item, but leaving your comment. If anyone is curious here’s the link:

      • I respectfully disagree with your decision to run the Ryrie article. The author mocked a distinguished scholar whose work has blessed believers world wide. Ryrie was not some shallow nutcase, nor a heretical false teacher. He was in good–and a large–company. My regard for Patheos has reached an all-time low.
