DON'T JUDGE! I believe that God uses whatever it takes to win whomever HE WILLS! And yes! He uses this to win those and to bless those who this reaches. PRAISE GOD FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO SPREAD HIS LOVE AND MERCY! Even if this offends you! We don't see things the way that God sees them. "Matthew 7:16-20 King James Version (KJV). 16 Yes shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits yes shall know them." We have no idea how many people this man will WIN for Christ. I love it!

You should remember that most hymns are old tavern tunes sung by drunk people. The only way the early church could sing hymns was by using the tunes the general public already knew. At least now, the contemporary movement is trying to be original with their music and lyrics and not flat out copying.

Why do you make the videos stop all the time. Is it so they cannot be copied?

Love it!

I think the point that Tim is trying to poke fun at is the fact that sometimes people come into church wanting to be entertained, and not necessarily to worship. So putting the words of a worship song to Led Zeppelin music, would end up entertaining people, and a lot of people would still walk out thinking they worshiped. Now, I encourage many of you to remember that most of the hymns in our hymnals are Christian lyrics thrown on top of old bar tunes and other popular music. They didn't have a way to copy music for everyone, so they needed to use tunes they were already familiar with. So slow your negative comments. This is Tim doing what he does, finding the things we take for granted in church and poking fun at them. We aren't going to win anyone over by constantly spewing negativity. Some of these comments make me sad, because I know they're being said in other places.

I was in a profetic confrence last night. We had rappers that are singing worship music to gangs down in East L.A and many are coming to God's Kingdom! All of this group are X gang members. The leader of the group shared that before he was saved the only thing that would have reached him was music and that's how he came to the Lord but it was done with his kind of music, RAP. That's how he reaches these lost souls in gangs. Yes, it made my head hurt, but that's me. So if Tim Hawkins wants to revise Led Zepplin, God be with him! The Lord works in mysterous ways!

Church! Lighten up! I am so sad at how many people are throwing stones. Tim, blessings to you.....

I don't understand why GodTube would put this trash on their site.This is not Gods way.

It's pretty easy to sit on the sidelines an be critical - but consider this - the writer of such hymns as "Blessed Assurance", "Pass Me Not Oh Gentle Savior", and "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." - Francis Crosby - often used Scottish and Welsh tunes as well as music from Stephen Foster in the writing of her hymns. I've only read a few of the posts here - but what makes Worship Music sacred? Is it the label we attach to a song by calling it worship music? Is the words, the melody, the arrangement? I don't think so - what makes it sacred is the One it is intended for - it is the Object of the song and not the mechanics.

I've seen Tim Hawkins in person in concert and enjoyed his show, but this I didn't care for at all.

Not sure why but my postings keep getting deleted! Rather annoying! Those of you who think that this is garbage or mocking God remember the bible also says "sing a NEW song unto the LORD!" Tim does a great job of changing the words to do just that! You should see his song on his testimony.... check out "what I believe" by Tim....It is excellent! In addition to that my family was one of those that didn't like traditional, fire and brimstone churches....We avoided them! 10 years ago we started going to a church that does it differently...Our pastor uses videos, movie clips and pictures to get his point across. AND we have our own original music that has RAP, rock and traditional! Every song comes from the bible! it doesn't mean that it's a watered down version of the truth. On the contrary! Our pastor has been a target of the Tucson community because of his stand on God's truth. Not too long ago he was targeted by the gay community as hateful and not 1 Tucson church stood with us! NOT 1! 1 Corinthians 9:22. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. This is our churches motto!

No offense, sir. But I think that it is quite ironic that you are sitting at a computer, watching a video, and replying to it with some quite bold and judgmental statements. If you don't believe in entertainment coinciding with a relationship with God, then you are free to stay away from it. We all have our convictions, and each man and woman is responsible for his of her own belief of what God expects of him or her. It is simply not your place, nor mine to say that a conflict in our own personal convictions implies that somebody else is blind and destined for hell. I see no purpose in attempting to persuade you that entertainment and love for the Lord can coincide, but I do hope that you would please reserve judgement of someone else's standing with God for Him alone. God bless.

Legalism is garbage! GOD can and has used everything to reach the lost and change their heart. This is for the lost. If you can't see that than you my need to rekindle your first love. We have FREEDOM in CHRIST or I should just speak for myself after reading most of the post.
