What is most important is music that the average, non-professionally-trained person with a so-so voice can actually sing and sing well, and a congregation that is encouraged and led to stand up and sing with real sincere passion. I have seen that, both in congregations that had instrumental accompaniment and those that did not. People who have experienced that want that (although those in charge frequently fail to recognize that this is what people really want and need). Those who have never experienced that don’t know what they are missing, and often think that they want something that is actually a poor substitute.
Lynch went on to contrast Lambesis' initial strong arguments for Christianity with his subsequent destructive behavior. "Now I'm not saying this is an indictment against anything. All I'm saying is there's a guy who could argue Christianity beyond anyone I've ever spoken to in my life," Lynch said. Later he explained, "And then he discovered cocaine, strippers, heroin, steroids – went completely off the rails, abandoned his family, his wife threatened to divorce him." Lynch added that Lambesis' actions "destroyed his band."
It is a barbell economy. One can still find a way to get ahead but one will need to be working full time and researching which is work also to do so. I agree with others here. Collapse already happened for the majority anyways. So if the DOW crashes by 35% McDonalds is going to lay off all there staff? Pay less per hour when people walk off the job because of low pay or bennies? Ok, it may have a knock on effect, but more like a ripple in a pond. I am more concerned about geopolitics these days. The top of the barbell is freaked because growth for them is now stalling as was inevitable with just papering over real issues. It is always capital vs. labor issues in the end.
