CCM's Phony Culture
Contemporary Christian Music is of the Devil
Matthew 10:34, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

Photo to right: CCM Magazine cover from July 2007 featuring the worldly Christian Rock group, 'Barlow Girl.' They should be renamed the 'Bratty girls.' God deliver our nation from the feminist rebellion sweeping our churches and infecting our homes. No wonder the divorce rate is so high! The members of the group 'Barlow Girl' appear worldly, arrogant and sassy (which the Bible condemns as sin in 1st Timothy 2:9).
CCM is straight from Hell—a complacent form of apostate Christianity that takes no stand against crimes in government, doesn't expose public wickedness, doesn't call sin by name, doesn't call false religions by name, doesn't preach the gospel, doesn't step on anyone's toes... I'M VOMITING!!!
DANGER Will Robinson... DANGER!!! Apostate so-called “ministries” (what a joke) such as CCM magazine (which stands for Christ, Community, Church... differs from the most common meaning of the CCM acronym... Contemporary Christian Music). NOTE: When I refer to “CCM,” I always mean Contemporary Christian Music. From henceforth I'll refer to “CCM magazine” as “CCM magazine.”
The Lord has successfully exposed the evils of CCM music through my ministry and others, but most people simply don't care about the things of Jesus Christ as Philippian 2:21 states. Woe unto this wicked and adulterous generation!
CCM is of the Devil. What a bunch of religious fakes and phonies! All they sing about is “worship, worship, worship” while the world goes to Hell without hearing the Biblical gospel of salvation by faith alone in Christ WITHOUT WORKS (Romans 4:5-6).
I actually heard an audio advertisement on CCM magazine's website to buy TobyMac's “MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOUR” album to make a difference. What a sad testimony. I have to buy their album to make a difference? The only difference is in their bank account. God hates the apostate CCM industry and so do I. Christianity does not elevate love over convictions. Christianity does not permit wicked compromise in the name of going along to get along... love, love, love. Psalm 97:10 commands for God-fearing Christians to HATE EVIL. All I see is Kirk Cameron on Pat Robertson's demonic 700 CLUB.
In CCM magazine they feature such musical apostates as TobyMac, Third Day and Michael W. Smith (whose Roman Catholic). I clicked on “A Righteous Revolution” featuring mega-apostate CCM singer, Natalie Grant. The site features music by apostate Rita Springer, singing the repeated lyrics... “All I need to do is worship.” You had better get born-again!!! She repeats the same words over and over like a broken record, which is a characteristic of modern psuedo (false) worship music used in many bad churches.
“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” —Matthew 6:7
It's no coincidence that the VAIN REPETITIONS that Jesus warned about in Matthew 6:7 have subtly crept into our churches in the form of worship music. Whether it be prayer or singing, vain repetitions are vain repetitions. God rejects meaningless chants, repetitious words, and the bogus worship & praise meetings of immodestly dressed feminist brats and apostate milquetoast men. Sadly, most men in churches today have been indoctrinated to think it's hatred to speak the truth. They rely upon their own human reasoning instead of the Word of God.
It makes sense to go along to get along, thinking that cooperation is the way to lead people to Jesus Christ. However, that is NOT God's way. The Bible teaches that the truth offends people. This is why Jesus said that He came to turn family members against each other (Matthew 10:35), that is, because it's better to be divided over truth than to be sinfully united by error. Matthew 10:34, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
They killed Jesus for telling the truth. In John 18:37 Jesus told Pilate that He came into the world to bare witness to the truth. Jesus told the Samaritan woman in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped in spirit and truth. The truth is important!
I visited a Southern Baptist Church last year where the crowd began to put their hands in the air (mostly women) and sway back-n-forth to the music... worship, worship, worship... come Lord, come Lord, come Lord... love, love, love... creep me out, creep me out, creep me out! I've never been in a church service that sang CCM where the women didn't also wear pants and dress immodesty. One low standard begets another low standard. Shame on that pastor for not leading and feeding his flock with the Word of God. I'm so sick of apostate pastors who spiritually feed chemical foods, fluoridated water and toxic supplements to their congregation. It's high-time that preachers started preaching the Word of God again. To hell with political correctness! To hell with not offending people! To hell with cultural sensitivity! The truth is the truth is the truth! The truth can be dealt with, but a lie cannot.
I've not received any more hateful e-mail in times past than from the apostate Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) gang. You talk about malicious hatred! Before Christian Rock there was secular Rock. It's a fact. The first CCM reared its ugly head in 1969 to fill a request from the apostate religious community to have their own Rock 'N' Roll. By the way, Rock music is synonymous with sexual immorality, evidenced by the sexual revolution in America which has led to the pornography industry, the abortion industry and now the same-sex business. America's days of liberty are numbered!
I'm not against drums and electric guitars, but mainstream CCM music is SYNONYMOUS with apostate ministers like Max Lucado (who openly supports criminal immigration in the United States). What most people consider Christianity today is worldly heathendom. It's grossly sickening. Churches rarely make their own music thesee days; but rather; they BUY music from apostates like Michael W. Smith (who is a favorite of Roman Catholic). Sean Hannity is going on a world cruise with Michael W. Smith and other apostates in July of 2012. If you hurry you might still be able to get a ticket (and please don't come back to America)!
The entire CCM industry is devoid of spiritual truth. They don't contend for the faith. Roman Catholics are some of the biggest supporters of the CCM industry. The sermonettes given from America's pulpits today are all based upon secular psychology mixed with the Bible, which is called PSYCHOHERESY!!! That's all you'll hear from James Dobson's Focus On The Family. How about focusing on the truth!!!
In the Southern Baptist Church I visited, the senior pastor was a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and also had a degree in psychology from a state university. That's what many churches are looking for these days, that is, someone that has a degree in shrink psychology (because they don't feel comfortable with just having a pastor who knows the Bible and walks with God). It's a shame what has happened in America! Our churches are paranoid today, distrustful of men who don't think like secular heathens do. Churches want a psychologist who knows a little about the Bible, instead of a man of God who rejects secular psychology and preaches only from God's inspired Words.
To hell with modern psychology which is rooted in evolution, humanism and heathendom. It is unhealthy spiritually for a pastor to listen frequently to apostate neo-evangelical preachers on TV. You will quote these jerks from the pulpit and be influenced adversely by them, I guarantee it. Remember, the Devil always appears attractive to his victims. Eve was impressed by the serpent and saw that the forbidden fruit was pleasing to the eyes to behold.
Go into ANY popular so-called Christian bookstore and you'll find an entire section devoted to Max Lucado, a total fraud and heretic. Lucado teaches Baptismal Regeneration, but is subtle about it like Lutherans. He says that you don't have to be water baptized to be saved, but if you're really saved you'll want to get baptized. You cannot show me a direct statement by Lucado anywhere that he REFUTES Baptismal Regeneration (because if he did it would expose Roman Catholics and that's the exact opposite of what he's trying to sinfully do, that is, promote World Religion). Lucado was a Church of Christ minister for decades and then all of a sudden renamed his church in the 1990's. Max Lucado is not fooling everyone!
I went into a local Christian book store last year and noticed a large section in my face... MAX LUCADO IS HERE!!! (or something like that). There was a big picture of his ugly mug and dozens of nicely published and colorful looking books... like the forbidden fruit that tempted Eve. Boy those books looked like eye candy. I kindly informed the woman of the bookstore, who is Southern Baptist, that Max Lucado is a Church of Christ fraud and deceiver. I explained to her that Lucado is being used by Satan to unite the churches into apostasy, preaching a watered-down doctrine that avoids the Doctrine of Christ. I bought a Bible commentary and as I left I heard her lock the door behind me. She knew that she was selling heresy.
I triple-dog dare you to listen to interviews on by your favorite CCM singers online and show me where even one shares a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can't! CCM SINGERS DON'T SHARE THE GOSPEL. I'm so sick of the CCM bull-crap. They talk about God, love and worship; but they neglect to preach the gospel to their fans. They do this deliberately to increase their marketing base to maximize profits. They don't care if anyone gets born-again. They're all sycophantic suck-ups and phonies parasiting off of America's churches!!!
All of the phony so-called worship in churches today is a bunch of wood, hay and stubble as the Bible warns in 1st Corinthians 3:11-15. Only that which is done for Jesus Christ will last. 1st Corinthians 3:11 warns that there is no other foundation laid than Jesus Christ. The Roman Catholic Church is built upon the sinful traditions of men and not the inspired Words of God. Why oh why aren't all of the CCM singers and televangelists exposing the whore of Roman Catholicism to the world. DANGER Will Robinson... DANGER!!!
Mars ILL, Aaron Shust, Laura Story, Anberlin, Thousand Foot Krutch, Plumb, Bebo Norman, Mandisa, Addison Road, Kari Jobe, Josh Wilson, Underoath, Israel & New Breed, Superchick, Switchfoot, The Fray, "KiKi" Sheard, Matthew West, Pillar, Sara Groves, Myron Butler & Levi, Fireflight, Lindsay, McCaul, Relient K, BarlowGirl, Kerrie Roberts, Jaci Velasquez, Mat Kearny, and a thousand other CCM names are bad news. NOT ONE OF THEM PREACHES THE GOSPEL. They're all apostate, in bed with the Ecumenical Movement of the New World Order (NWO). You'll never hear any of them exposing the NWO because they're part of the NWO.
I could list groups and singers all day, but the bottom line is that true Christians ought not follow Christ afar off as did Peter. And furthermore, nearly all of the CCM singers being promoted in mainstream music today aren't even saved. That's a sad fact! Most religious singers are devout Roman Catholics and on their way to the Lake of Fire!
Many Baptist churches today are inviting Michael W. Smith into their church because of his excellent works in gospel orchestra, Christmas and as an awesome composer; however, Smith is also ecumenical and Roman Catholic, and is being used by the new World Order powers to infiltrate and corrupt New Testament churches. There are only a few remaining genuine churches today. For example: I recently did some research just on the Church of Christ false religion and found 84,262 false churches that they own and operate. International Churches of Christ EXPOSED! (84,262 churches teach Baptismal Regeneration). They mandate water baptism to be saved. According to their religious teachings, no one who hasn't been dunked into a tank of water can go to Heaven. The Bible disagrees with that kind of heresy.
I really get lonely at times thinking about all the religious fakes and phonies in the world today. There are an estimated 1,000,000,000 Catholics who think Mary is to be worshipped, and think that keeping 7 sacraments will get them into Heaven. Catholics trust in self-righteous works. They're all going to DIE IN THEIR SINS (John 8:24). Then there's approximately 1,000,000,000 Islamic Muslims who don't even believe that Jesus died on the cross, nor do they believe that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. Then there's 15,000,000 Jews who follow Judaism and also don't believe that Jesus is their Messiah. Then there's hundreds-of-millions of people who follow false religions like Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventism, Christian Science, et cetera. Then there's the Pentecostal Charismatics who believe salvation must be maintained by good works or lost. Then there's all the millions of Lordship Salvationists who believe that good works must be done as part of being saved.
Catholics require good works to be saved. Lordship Salvationists require good works as part of salvation. And Charismatics require good works in order to stay saved. Either way it's all a false gospel of self-righteousness and sinful works salvation. Calvinists are a combination of the last two, teaching that works must accompany faith and continue to be saved. They teach a catch-22 type of bull-crap theology that says you don't have to do self-righteous works to get saved; but then they wrongly define reentrance as ceasing from a sinful lifestyle, which they require to be saved. They are in denial, a bunch of liars and deceivers. The Biblical gospel is simple and free, paid for by Jesus' precious physical blood (1st Peter 1:18-19).
I am reminded that only 8 people got onto Noah's ark. EIGHT! I don't know for sure, but after 1,500 years since creation at the time of the flood (2,500 B.C.), I estimate that there were at least 100,000,000 people alive at the time of the flood. Even if a conservative figure is used... at least SEVERAL MILLION people perished in the flood if you believe the Bible is God's Word. I think there were about 100,000,000 souls lost. Noah preached the good news of the coming messiah for 120-years, but not one person listened to him. NOT ONE! Think about that! I'm certain that they had all kinds of religions back then that taught a false way of salvation (just as Adam thought he could cover his sins with fig leaves). Man's fig-leaf religion cannot save. God slew an innocent animal (picturing the innocent Lamb of God slain for the sins of mankind). It's the blood of Jesus that saves!
God deliver us from the new, modernistic, corrupt, Moody Bible Institute gospel of surrendering your life to Jesus by making a commitment. If former Moody Memorial Church pastor Harry Ironside were alive today, he'd die of another heart attack if he could see Moody today. Their girls all wear pants and dress immodestly. They sell and listen to religious Rock music (there's no such thing as Christian Rock). They teach a false gospel of Lordship Salvation (thanks to heretic John MacArthur whom they invite and honor every year at Moody's Founder's Week). Why oh why? John MacArthur teaches that Jesus' physical blood soaked into the ground at Calvary and stayed there, totally disregarding Bible Verses such as Hebrews 9:12 and 9:24. MacArthur is a false prophet and unsaved Modernist!!!
All we heard about from the CCM industry is praise, worship and how great God is; yet, we never hear them preaching the gospel, we never heard them warning anybody of the judgment to come for lost sinners in the Lake of Fire forever, we never hear them exposing the blatant crimes of the Federal Reserve bankers, we never hear them decry the homosexual movement in America, we never hear them openly speak out against Hollywood, we never hear any of them call the newsmedia liars and deceivers... Do you know why? It's because the NWO criminals who control Hollywood and the television networks, also control the music industry and the White House.
This is Satan's world according to 2nd Corinthians 4:4 and if you want to be successful in this world you have to play their game. Fame and fortune only come from selling out to the higher powers. That's why I get so sick when I see Kirk Cameron and people like him being promoted on The 700 Club and in Hollywood, because people like him are the religious side of the NWO (a poster boy for the evils lurking in the background). Kirk Cameron is still a part of Hollywood and the propaganda machine. There is a woeful danger in all of this because millions of people will follow Kirk Cameron's religious direction, which is the Ecumenical Movement rubbing shoulders with pat Robertson and Benny Hinn.
Pat Robertson is an evil man, part of the Illuminati. Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) promotes New Age psychologists for Christian leaders who need help. Literally, Robertson is controlled opposition for the NWO. As hard as it is to believe, these people are sincere, but Satanic. CBN sends gullible Christian leaders to be taught New Age chants and meditation instead of Biblical preaching. You'd be better off jumping off a bridge than going to the people they recommend. I'm leery of the whole mess. I expose them all for the trash they are. I don't mean to be unkind, but when CBN sends hurting marriages and struggling believers to New Age gurus for spiritual help, someone needs to get mad and take a stand for God!!! I am doing that by God's grace!!!
Everything in America has gone sideways, off-track, the whole system is chaotic today. You can't trust anything from the mainstream newsmedia, nothing from the New York Times Bestseller List, nothing from televangelists, nothin from Hollywood, nothing from YouTube, nothing from the internet, nothing from the churches. Jesus told us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES in John 5:39, for in them we think we have eternal life and they are they which testify of Jesus!!!
I'll close with this. I guess the best example that I can give you is a big bucket of maggots worms. Can you imagine looking for something good to eat in a bucket of maggots? That's what America's religious scene has become. Going to your local Christian bookstore these days is akin to looking for a ham and cheese sandwich in a bucket of maggots. Everything on television today is maggot city! You need to find a better source of food. That's what my website ministry is all about, getting you to stop feeding on maggots from the puss-bucket; and get you to start eating filet mignon and fresh steamed vegetables at the master's table instead. Stop eating from the maggot bucket of CCM music and listening to apostates like Max Lucado, Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer's books.
I mean no unkindness to anyone and I sincerely love everyone, honestly and truly. God knows my heart. I hate evil as God hates evil (Psalm 97:10). I hate the love of money that causes men and women to sell their souls to the Devil. CCM is all about fame and fortune, not about getting souls saved. proof of what I say is that no CCM artists preach the gospel. Heck, they don't even quietly share the Biblical gospel on their websites. It's because they are worldly and the world absolutely will not tolerate a genuine Christian (John 15:19). They'd label you as a baby Jesus in a heartbeat and you'd lose popularity with the younger generation. Satan has always been popular in this wicked world. Satan is the ultimate celebrity... here comes his limousine now!!!
The great danger of CCM and the Ecumenical Movement is that they'll inoculate you (hinder you) from finding God's best in your life. The Devil wants to give you something inferior and make you think it's real, but it's not. CCM is a dead end of praise and worship that totally obliterates the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST. Biblical doctrine is the most important thing in anyone's life (and the main thing lacking in ecumenism today). This is why I expose the Devil in CCM. Are you awake to righteousness? Do you care? Who is on the Lord's side (Joshua 24:15)?
