sed Various Artist doing Dylan's Gospel (48) RE: Various Artist doing Dylan's Gospel 03 Apr 03


It's interesting to hear people complain about Robert Zimmermann's being judgemental in his Christian music but not in his topical music. His pre-Christian songs are quite full of his personal criticisms of society and of individuals while his Christian albums, if authentically Christian, would reflect the coming judgement of Christ as depicted by the Bible. Can't you see the difference? It's a very important distinction. I've never had copies of the "Christian" albums but have heard some of the songs here and there. That RZ left the church makes one wonder how saved he ever might have been. Might he have lost his interest in discipleship and then lost his salvation? It's an enigma wrapped in a riddle; who knows? I sure hope he gets back on track as the slow train is still comin'.

I know of one former minister who wrote and recorded Christian songs and later became an atheist organizer, songwriter and recording artists. It happens. My question is how sincere were the de-converted to begin with? I guess the devil works extra hard on the big name people. But he works on the rest of us as well. Thankfully God is always more powerful whether or not we align ourselves with Him.
