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.

Those that are bashing Tim Hawkins for changing the lyrics to a song should remember that we were told "sing a NEW song unto the LORD!" I'm sure that the original version of this song was WAY out there when it was written. I have to say my family was one of those that came to know the LORD through a church that teaches it a little differently. NOT that the church compromises God's truth but, that it does it through original music , some (gasp!) rap, rock and then more traditional worship and our pastor teaches using pictures, videos and even movie clips to get the point across!!!! THat doesn't mean it's watered down..on the contrary!! Our pastor is a target of hate in Tucson because he refuses to bow to the pressures of the community.... My husband and I are now Christians because of all the wonderful teachings, seminars, small groups and marriage classes that are taught. 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.

Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ.

It's NOT about making jokes and making light.....The bible says "to sing a NEW song unto the LORD!" I'm sure the original was WAY out there when it was written compared to older songs. 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. @Justice Bishoff and Robert Price---My husband and I (along with our 3 children ) were those people that disliked the "old" music as well as the OLD way of teaching and worship so much so that it prevented us from going to church and seeking the Lord. We found a church that sings original songs some rap, rock and traditional worship type.....In addition our pastor uses pictures, videos, movie clips that help bring the point across. IN NO WAY does our pastor EVER compromise God's word!!!!! He stands on God's truth week in and week out!!!( So much so that he and his family are targets of hate in Tucson.....) We walk out of church every week with an "a ha" moment.... This churches teachings, seminars, small groups and marriage classes saved our marriage and us!! We gave our lives to the Lord 9 years ago and our children (2 who are now adults and 1 in high school) when they were teens. Our whole family is a major volunteering force in our church and community.....We would have NEVER been doing that had church been what you are expecting it to be...staying in the 19th century.....
