Episode 122 Why I Quite Listening to Hillsong Music

Why I Quit Listening to Hillsong Music

Fight Breaks Out After a Hillsong Worship Service

A security guard for Hillsong Church is in stable condition at a local hospital after suffering bleeding on the brain. An assailant hit the guard in the head while the guard tried to prevent a group of churchgoers from being attacked. An Australian media outlet 9News reports that a group of men were standing outside the church heading to Redfern Station when an argument suddenly broke out with another group of men. Police say the church's 33-year-old security guard stepped in to break up the fight after he saw an 18-year-old man being struck in the face. An assailant then attacked and punched in him head, which left him unconscious. How could something like this happen outside of a church service, and for that matter outside of Hillsong Church, the group that is responsible for creating much of the music that we listen to in the contemporary Christian world?

Episode 121 Snoop Shoots Pres. Trump

Snoop Shoots President Trump in His Latest Music Video (Part Two)

Can Anger Really Be Redeemed?

Double Edge Music Podcast Host: Troy Isaacs

In the last episode, Troy looked into Snoop's latest music video in which Snoop shot a clown called "Ronald Clump", clearly a representation of President Trump.  This isn't the first time Snoop has fired off a President Trump, but it's the first time he's gone so far as to pretend assassination. Snoop recently criticized other music artists for just releasing “party music” and not dealing with real issues like “this (expletive) clown president.” Does Snoop have a legitimate reason for being angry? If so, is that how he should express his anger? In the Scriptures, Troy looked at two forms of anger: righteous anger and reckless anger. Now in this final episode, Troy explores "redeemed anger".

 What You Will Learn:

  • In this episode, you will hear Scriptural examples of redeemed anger
  • How can anger be redeemed? What does a Christian need to do to redeem their anger?
