MercyMe Breaking Down the Walls of Biblical Separation

MERCYME BREAKING DOWN THE WALLS OF BIBLICAL SEPARATION the following was excerpted from (Friday Church News Notes, and posted on on December 28, 2011, - MercyMe’s “Word of God Speak” is popular in some fundamental Baptist churches. Not only does the song preach charismatic mysticism, but MercyMe’s influence is extremely dangerous for the members of any Bible-believing church. MercyMe is busy breaking down every aspect of biblical separation. They break down the walls of separation from heresy. In early 2011 they included Roman Catholic Matt Maher on their Rock & Worship Roadshow. MercyMe is also in the business of breaking down the walls of separation from the world. In their “Cover Tune Grab Bag” series they sing such things as “Jump” by Van Halen, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (complete with choreographed Jackson-style dancing), “Crazy” by Outkast, “Ice Ice Baby” by rapper Vanilla Ice, “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey, “It’s the End of the World” by R.E.M., “Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi, “More Than Words” by Extreme, “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees, “Footloose,” “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor, “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor, “Hold Me Now” by Thompson Twins, “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da” and “I Feel Fine” by the Beatles, “More Than Words” by Extreme, and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper. It is obvious that the members of MercyMe fill their minds and hearts with a lot of licentious secular rock. The following remarks left on the YouTube videos demonstrate MercyMe’s worldly cool influence: “These guys rock! ... awesome ... I wish my parents were as cool as this ... Dude!! ... I get the impression that they like the Beatles. Sweet! ... This is great! And the dancing! Oh my goodness!” MercyMe is responsible before God for every professing believer that is captured by the demons that controlled the Beatles, Van Halen, Michael Jackson, and every other godless secular rocker that they promote in “innocent fun.” And so is every other CCM “artist” that encourages the love of secular rock instead of separating from it as God’s Word demands (e.g., Romans 12:2; Ephesians 5:11; James 1:227; 1 John 2:15-17). And so is every fundamental Baptist pastor and song leader who brings these people’s music into the churches.
