Evangelism isn't exclusive to non-believers.

The general understanding of the word implies that it's directed towards non-believers, or at least them plus backslidden believers.

This is just semantics, though. My point is that they position themselves and act as if those outside of the Church are their target, so all praise and critiques should be done with that in mind. If they're a highly effective ministry for energizing believers, that's awesome, but it begs the question: Why, then, are they on Warped Tour, etc.?

I'm sure people who are Christians get something out of their music, I even said that. It's obvious they intend to evangelize to non-believers though. Not that I don't agree with evangelism... but I really think they generate more hate then decency because of how they evangelize.

Apparently new O.C. Supertones track on Noisetrade, from a new album in the works. Sick. Wish I was home to hear it. Between this and FIF, looks like Christian ska's not dead.

I feel like, between Showbread, Falling Up, Five Iron Frenzy, Project 86, Starflyer 59, and The Classic Crime (and those are just bands associated with Christian music off the top of my head), people are gonna get Kickstartered out. I hope this one works like the rest have. The new song is awesome.

If it gets the music to the fans in the an efficient manner, I have no problems donating. As long as the amount you need to donate for the album (MP3 or physical depending on how much I like the band!) is a reasonable amount, I will be happy to contribute. I'd never give a massive amount for the upper rewards, but I'm happy essentially preordering the album to help a band record it.

We sang a song in church this morning and I cant find it anywhere online. The only lyric I can remember specifically is "This is not a song, this is a revival". Anybody help me out and tell me what this song is called???

It's from David Crowder*Band's new/final double album that dropped two months ago. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. It's overwhelmingly long but dang good, and my current AOTY.

Have you guys seen the controversy that cropped up with The Classic Crime Kickstarter? They were fully funded in 24 hours but then some people started saying they were abusing fans and pocketing the money and now some guys have pledged $10k but are going to cancel it just before the deadline... it all is a bit weird but you can read Matt's response. Feel a bit sorry for them really.
