If one knows something bad, don't talk about it, always find something good, for everyone is fighting a battle.
Do not judge, for Jesus warned against that.

Unfortunately, I had to leave two forums (of my own accord) because certain ones, although they had good advice, did not follow this teaching.

Once I was told I "had blinders on" and other things, and once I was told that I had "crossed the Tiber", just because I attended a concert at a Catholic church where my daughter was part of the musicians.

Most of all, it did not seem to me that their responses were Christian in nature and gentle in spirit.

I disagree with you about judging. If you read the context Jesus was only talking about Judging in hypocrisy thats also what take the plank out your eye verse represents its all about judging in hypocrisy, otherwise if one is to judge they should judge in truth and righteousness.

Playing loud music and singing and playing instruments at church service worship singing songs of joy to the Lord and supporting your child is biblical.

Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;
Sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings.

Im just warming up so im more prepared for the Lord so his strike is not so hard, im improving. The last thing i want to be is boastful as i face towards the Lord because he just drops me everytime. I dont like challenging God i always lose.

Don't get me wrong. I respect the power of the Lord. We've wrestled over the years. I came out on-top a few times. And so did he. We are pretty much the same level I guess.

Just couuldn't resist :)
So what you are saying is that God is much stronger, much more powerful than me?That we are not on equal footing?
God and i are mates though. We spend time together. If I was scared of Him I would find another mate. I need to relax around deities.

Nobody is stronger or more powerful than God. He is the Almighty.
I'm glad you spend time with Him.

God must have a hard time trying to raise billions of human beings. How many people are crying because they dont get what they want and think the world owes them something.
