Christian Genre Spotlights: A Guide to New Music Discoveries

When asking people about their thoughts on Christian music, I got a lot of people saying that they don't listen to Christian music or they are not a big fan of Christian music. A lot of people brought up the point that "it all sounds the same" or "it is just not the style of music I like." When you hear "Christian music" does K-LOVE pop into your mind? Yet, there is so much more than just K-LOVE, there is actually a lot of different genres within Christian music other then the songs played on the typical Christian radio station. I have made a list and included videos along with them to maybe help you discover new genres or artists that sing for the Kingdom of God.

Why are Millennials Leaving the Church?

There is a trend in “Generation Y” or in “the Millennials” where people are becoming less religious and attending church less frequently.

(Un)holy Things: Jesus Christ

In his work, “Holy Things”, Gordon Lathrop states that, “authentic continuity requires responsible change” (p. 5). This is to say that the discussions we have today regarding faith are not ones that we ought to take lightly. Rather, what we discern in contemporary discussions of evolution versus seven-day creation is going to inform future generations. Furthermore, the faith we have been given in the 21st century is not the same of the Early Church.

Tad Armstrong Colloquium

Written by Kevin Dunne. Media by Jess Sturgeon. This year’s Ormond Church & State Lecture welcomed Tad Armstrong to Greenville College onthe tenth. Armstrong, a practicing attorney in Edwardsville and author of the book, It’s OK ToSay God, spoke during the chapel hour, as well as in Snyder 104. In chapel, Armstrong spokeabout the importance of being informed and educated about the Constitution, important SupremeCourt cases dealing with religion, and the gradual loss of freedoms. Dr. Richard Huston, head of the history department at Greenville College, introduced Armstrong at both chapel and the colloquium. Armstrong spoke very passionately about theses pressing issues that affect our country today andwhat we can to do combat the forces of ignorance. He has even set up Constitution clubs, whichhe is active in, to help educate people about U.S. history, the Constitution, and the processes androles of the government. One of the overarching themes was why the issue of church and state,expressly pertaining to Christianity, has become so widespread. Armstrong proposed that thedemographics have changed. It is not the Constitution, by and large, that has changed, butpeople, rather that have. The fact that Christian representation has diminished, Armstrong believes, causes so many issues.
