THE SOYBOY AUTUMN BLACKLIST

Autumn is here, which means cool evenings, hot soy lattes, fuzzy sweaters, and Hallmark movies with the guys. 😊 Sadly, it also means that in this new season I must “mark and avoid” those people and institutions which have failed to uphold a winsome witness in our current cultural climate.

Worst Church: This one is a toss-up. In light of Alberta’s new health restrictions, it may either be Grace Life (Edmonton) or Fairview Baptist. My advice is to avoid both!

Worst Musical Group: My Soul Among Lions
Okay, what’s with this new trend of setting Psalms to music? That’s SO Old Testament. Paul instructs Christians to sing bridges, choruses, and spiritual songs. I’m not wanting to be a rigid biblicist, but don’t you think if we were supposed to also sing Psalms, there would be some kind of New Testament instruction to that effect?

Worst Educational Institution: St. Brendan's Classical Christian Academy
I was deeply distressed to read that this school is teaching GREEK starting in elementary school! This is a dangerous trend. If every layperson learns Greek, a crucial distinction between scholars and laity will be muddied. When every ploughperson reads Greek, this could put a lot of experts out of a job! It could also spark a trend where more advanced biblical training moves back into the churches. But as history has repeatedly shown us, only the seminaries have a proven track record of protecting churches from doctrinal corruption.

Worst Neighbor: Kyle Mann
Admittedly, I don’t even live in this guy’s neighborhood. But if I did, I would be terrified of such a triggering surname! Also, he writes satire, which sometimes hurts people’s feelings. Hurting people’s feelings isn’t “loving your neighbor.”

Worst Apologist: James R. White
At Evangellyfish Theillogical Seminary, Dr. Philetus Kaiser always began his apologetics classes by reminding us, “apologetics is the subtle art of apologizing for the Christian faith.” Clearly Dr. White missed the memo!

Worst Blogger: Douglas Wilson
I once read a post on Blog & Mablog and was subsequently hospitalized for 9 days! If a link to his blog shows up in my news feed, I now have to take an extra-strength diazepam just to scroll past it without having a panic attack. Seriously toxic stuff!

I joined the Balm in Gilead podcast again for a great interview with Philip Moyer from My Soul Among Lions . This is a worship band that truly deserves to be shared far and wide. We had the opportunity to discuss the origin of the band, some theology, and their musical background. We talked about several of their songs (you'll get to hear samples of many songs in the episode).

In a worship music world filled with unsound sources, this group is the opposite. Check out the most recent episode of the Balm in Gilead podcast. More info below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Op Dag 36 van #SkaduVanDieKruis luister ons na “Lead Me, Lord (Psalm 25)” deur die groep My Soul Among Lions.

Uit die liriek:

To You, O Lord, I lift my soul
My God, in You I trust
Don’t ever let me be ashamed
Bring all my foes to dust
Soon treacherous men will see disgrace
Who without cause betray
But make my feet to know Your paths
And lead me in Your way

Remember mercy and renew
Your steadfast love of old
Forgive the sins of foolish youth
So brazen, brash, and bold
For upright is the Lord, and good
Who teaches men who stray
And makes the meek to know His paths
And leads them in His way

This is so rich and I keep soaking in this song. I've split up Psalm 15 (NASB '95) according to the chorus and verses to see how closely you have captured the verses in the song. In this song you capture the deep longing of every citizen of Zion. Deep calls to deep. Thank you!

Psalm 15
Description of a Citizen of Zion.
A Psalm of David.

Chorus
1 O Lord, who may abide in Your tent?
Who may dwell on Your holy hill?

Verse 1
2 He who walks with integrity, and works righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart.
3 He does not slander with his tongue,

Verse 2
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,
But who honors those who fear the Lord;

Verse 3
He swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 He does not put out his money at interest,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things will never be shaken.

It started when we were young...
It started when we were young, learning to sing in church and to play piano and violin and drums. But it really started several years ago when God brought us together from across the country to a church in the crossroads of America. We started as church musicians, doing our best to figure out how to help God’s people in worship, week in and week out. We joined the hymn revitalization movement and we wrote some new songs of our own. And then we discovered the tradition of psalm singing. The more we read and the more we worked, the more convinced we became that our church, and churches across the country, should be singing the psalms. So what was stopping them?

The answer was easy—nobody had done the work of putting the Psalms to modern music. Sure, some people had done some Psalms and done them well. But nobody had tackled the whole book. It was a big job—big enough to take a lifetime. But somebody had to start somewhere, and, like the Good Book says, with God all things are possible.

The other big question was what kind of music and forms to set God’s work to. It had to be complex and beautiful enough to capture the nuance of the text, and simple enough for grandpa and grandma and all the kiddos to sing along. We didn’t have to answer that question ourselves. Generations of gospel singers on the southern plains and Appalachian mountain men and street corner balladeers had answered it already. American folk music has evolved over the past two hundred years to express the simplest declarations of love, and the thorniest statements of political protest. It’s the music of children and the music of poets and philosophers. It’s the perfect music to capture the brightest bursts of color and the smallest shades of God’s truth.

So we decided to form a proper band. We tuned our guitars, sharpened our pencils, and went to work. We tried the songs out on each other, on church congregations, and house parties, and anybody else who would listen. God blessed us and gave us some good tunes, and we hope and pray He will bless us still. Because the work is just beginning.
