Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible "IF JESUS WERE ALIVE TODAY, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A RAPPER."--The Rt. Rev. Catherine Roskam. (Edited by DCB) "A powerful evangelism tool, developed at Trinity Church…in the birthplace of Hip Hop, the South Bronx, The Hip Hop Prayer Book offers a means to worship that will draw in the young and speak to those not generally spoken to by the Church. Containing daily prayers, psalms, a variety of services (including a Eucharist), and a selection of bible stories all designed with the enlivening power of Hip Hop in mind, and…a wealth of contextualizing materials, The Hip Hop Prayer Book is designed for in personal worship and by church leaders looking for ways in which to broaden the reach of their congregation."

Editor’s Comment: The following is from a book review I did on THE REFORMERS AND THEIR STEPCHILDREN and may be found at: "Chapter Five: Winckler This word was another name of derision given our spiritual forefathers and is derived from the German ‘Winckel’ which means a corner or an out of the way place. Prominent in the word is the idea of illicit or unauthorized. When these Bible believing people gathered together they were "formed without license from the civil powers" page 161. The Winckler gathering was not for entertainment but "the expounding of the Scriptures was paramount, the main dish on the menu’ footnote page 160. In other words today’s emphasis on drama, dance, and music in the church was not the diet of the Winckler." You may add Hip Hop as well! Harvard Divinity School 7 June 2005 (Edited by DCB) The man who began this Hip Hop craze in the so called churches is a 1997 graduate of the Harvard Divinity School (HDS) and is pastor of the Trinity Church of Morrisania in the South Bronx. The following web site says HDS’ The First Decade Award "was established in 1983 by the Alumni/ae Association of the Divinity School to recognize a graduate from the previous 10 years ‘whose vocation confirms our hope that God is present as justice, peace and beauty and whose achievement inspires our striving for truth, compassion, and service.’"

The following is the edited acceptance speech of Hip Hop originator Timothy Holder. "When you look at me, hip hop is probably not the first thing you think about. Or for that matter, when you get to know me, my being gay is hopefully not your only thought. I often say that being gay is about being a good priest after all, because it is who God made me to be, not somebody else." "On behalf of and Trinity Episcopal Church of Morrisania, I bring you, Harvard Divinity School, ‘Seminary of the World’—greetings from the Hip Hop Nation where hip hop came into this world as expression of justice, peace, and beauty—emceeing, DJ-ing, rapping, dancing, graffiti, and cultural style. There is great, untapped love in the song and rhyme of our younger generations." (Emphasis added by DCB)

Editor’s Comment: Eph 5:19 "Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord." Col 3:16 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." It is hard to imagine Hip Hop having a part in either of these verses.

Agape Press 5 July LA. UMC DELEGATES DENY PETITION TO RENOUNCE RACISM, SEXUAL SIN (Edited by DCB) United Methodists in the state of Louisiana "have rejected a proposal that would have required members of the church to renounce racism, adultery, and both heterosexual and homosexual sex outside marriage."

Editor’s Comment: 1Co 6:11 "And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." God saves sinners, of which some were sodomites, BUT NOW ARE THEY washed, sanctified, justified "in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God" and they now "...walk in newness of life" Romans 6:4 and 2 Corinthians 5: 17. Agape Press 6 July 2006 NEA DELEGATES ACCEPT RESOLUTION ENDORSING SAME-SEX 'MARRIAGE' (Edited by DCB) "The National Education Association (NEA) has voted overwhelmingly to endorse legal civil unions and same-sex ‘marriages.’" "California teacher Jeralee Smith, past chairman of the NEA Ex-Gay Educators Caucus, says she is considering leaving the union. ‘People who share our values, which is traditional family and a few other things, can have no integrity unless they are either active on the inside to try and change things, or they leave the union and take their money out of the union's hands,’ says Smith."

Smith also says that the NEA is promoting "‘gay,’ lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues to be required content for teacher credentialing." The NEA’s "Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification issued a report stating ‘that the NEA advocate for the inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues in the 'National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education' teacher education program review process."

Editor’s Comment: 1 Corinthians 6: 9 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind." The "abusers of themselves with mankind" are sodomites. These were the people of whom the Scripture saith "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly" Genesis 13:13. Although A. T. Robertson follows the wrong Greek Text I would like to quote what he had to say concerning those described in this 1 Corinthians 6: 9. He said that "All these will fall short of the kingdom of God. This was plain talk to a city like Corinth. It is needed today. It is a solemn roll call of the damned even if some of their names are on the church roll in Corinth whether officers or ordinary members."

Brethren, keep "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ" Titus 2:13.

Because of Calvary,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
