  1. Jasmin Kukolja says:

    The music for this promo is bordering on heavy metal, words are not recognisable and it is not to the glory of God as word of God says we should worship with understanding also in Spirit and Truth.. Every piece of music is reflecting an attitude, a spirit. What attitude and spirit is this reflecting..? A person who has come from a pagan background commented this is where it is from (pagan) and they are trying to escape from it.
    Please don’t get annoyed with my comments as I am either saying the truth or not, may God be the judge and I pray that you will change the music. Thank you.

    • Heinrich says:

      I agree with Jasmin. If this is a revival, then it will be there to draw the attention of our young man and woman back to the world. But then, thank you for doing this, i know now that we are living in the last days of earth’s history. Just sad that it is the Adventist Church that is doing the backsliding!!!

  2. Myckal Morehouse says:

    As a young adult I would have never left the world if this is what the church would have offered me . Jesus reached people by going against popular culture, Satan has always reached people by moving with popular culture. Which of these two is this music trying to imitate?

  3. Mariki Louw says:

    This is an absolute disgrace to the ministry of Jesus Christ, and to the Seventh day Adventist church of which I am a member. But, as it had been prophesied, this manifestation of another spirit (NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF SCRIPTURE) will enter even God’s church at the end of time – this is actually a fulfillment of prophecy. God never reveals Himself in this way……………..

  4. Lester says:

    The music is not lifting GOd Period.. its a wordly music… Philippians 4:8..
    How can Jesus listen to that kind of Music??is that what Jesus wants to hear?
    we should be the head not the tail…

  5. Nicolas says:

    There were two things that struck me in the clip.

    #1 is the music, as most of you guys have already mentioned. Coming from a rock/metal background myself, my reasons for thinking the music is inappropriate does not stem from whether I’m comfortable with it or not, it stems from the fact that God and that kind of music is just not reconcilable. It has nothing to do with weather I’m comfortable or not, because that would mean I’m acting on feeling/emotion and not on cognitive reasoning. Music has a physiological effect on us. It breaks down the barriers, it opens up the channels of the mind (Audio Channel), leaving the subconscious unprotected from reason. In other words, when the subconscious is opened, any subliminal messages can be planted in it without resistance from the conscious. In other words, it’s not about the words, but about the music. Music influences the heartbeat, the thought patterns, the emotions and so on. Let me not give you a lecture about it’s effects, rather go check out what the experts say. Get the book “Stop before it’s too late”, by Brian Neumann. He was involved in the industry, and has first hand experience. All of the above mentioned is in regards to rock and metal. It is not true for all music.

    #2 is the style of worship I saw among the young people. It was CHARISMATIC in character. Now if you look at the charismatic movement, you’ll note it is based on emotion, and feeling. Music plays a vital role in this, as the music is used to build up the emotions. There is an interesting book written by a mister Anton Lavey, who says, “Do what thou wilt is the whole of the law”, in other words, if it feels good, do it. If you go and do a study about the Charismatic movement, you will find it’s roots deeply entrenched in Catholicism. It is one of the tools, a very successful tool might I add, used in what is called THE COUNTER REFORMATION. Read up about that for yourselves.

    Please guys, don’t take my word for what I said, go check it out for yourselves.

    These are my main two objections to the vid.Everything else I saw looked good. But that is the nature of our enemy.

    He intertwines truth and error. 99% Orange juice and 1% Strychnine. Go figure.

    Guys, by what I am saying, I don’t want to put you all down. I want to encourage you. I want to encourage you to do better, and to let God lead. The enemy is sly, and he’s out to trick us.

    Thank you and God bless you for the initiative in starting this ministry, it is much needed. I pray that you let Christ be the one to lead you and be your guide as you push this ministry. Don’t be dismayed or discouraged by negative comments, but also, don’t change the message. Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. You are part of the army of youth that God has sent us for such a time as this. We are not to lower our standards to that of the world, but we are to raise the bar, to be a peculiar people, a royal priesthood in the latter days. I say again, don’t be dismayed or discouraged, but let the Word be your lamp guiding your feet, and let the Lord lead the way. The Lord will, through you, draw people to Him with His loving kindness.

    That’s all from me guys. God bless.

  6. Nicolas says:

    The Lord councils s in His Word, to trust in Him with all our hearts and to not lean unto our own understand. He says, in all our ways to acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths. (Prov 3:5,6)

    God bless guys.

  7. Michael says:

    I’m a 30-something SDA guy. I watched this video, and was horrified at the music. If you were simply to replace the music with something actually uplifting, the whole tone of the video would change. But then my question would be, what music, attitudes, etc., would be present at the event itself. (A little too much emphasis on the hand-raising too.) The shots of kneeling in prayer, Bible study (I suppose), and ministry were good.

  8. Steven says:

    I am probably the most sympathetic person towards Christian Rock Music and even enjoy hard rock and metal. However, the music in this promo doen’t seem to fit the focus of this event.

  9. Julee Thomas says:

    How sad – that music is not of the Holy Spirit, but another spirit entirely.

  10. Bill says:

    I had never heard the song, and don’t care for that kind of music myself. I did some Googling, and apparently TobyMac, aka Kevin Michael McKeehan, is a very popular “contemporary Christian music artist.” Personally, I think I’ll stick with John Michael Talbot and Keith Green.

    Now, I don’t know if the comments here are representative of the entire young adult demographic that the event is trying to target, but given the unanimous nature of the negative comments, I think that maybe those who produced the video might want to rethink their choice of music, if their aim is to get young adults to attend.

  11. ttyme says:

    Now, I happen to love music – most styles – and I do mean LOVE it – including contemporary Christian/Gospel. I do believe there is a place for multiple music styles in God’s church. What is good old time favorites to us today (i.e. hymns) was contemporary in its day. Lest we forget. However, there are definitely some styles that do NOT belong – no two ways around it – in God’s church. Period. I understand trying to reach the youth and all. The way it was done in 1950 or even for my generation (30 – 40) might not work. But this is were we get it twisted. Every old method is not (in some cases, never was) righteous, and everything new is not heathen (i.e., we don’t use LP’s. 8-tracks, and rarely use cassettes to spread the message. This does not make CD’s, podcast, satellite, or the internet evil). Methods may change but God’s TRUTH and what represents his CHARACTER does NOT EVER change! When the method being employed begins to obscure the message and the directives of our Savior – we’ve got too question. This clip right here is one of those times. This music (and imagery) is creepy, incoherent in its delivery, jarring, disturbing, and is representative of everything that God is NOT! This is not about cultural styles, tastes, or traditions. This truth transcends all of that. If the method being used is contrary to Cod’s nature and character – then it is SATANIC!

  12. Bill says:

    It looks like Allan has removed the promo video that was posted here and that was the object of the conversation so far. It consisted of video from prior Ignition events (and maybe some other young adult events, too), with the sound track being TobyMac’s song, “Ignition.”

    The lyrics of that song echo the call of Christ to the Laodicean church.

    Your sleep walking
    I’m sleep walking
    Your sleep walking
    I’m still talking
    Come spark the parts in me that all but died
    Jump start my heart and wake the sleeper inside
    Hold up the flag ’cause it’s ride or die
    Hold up the flag ’cause it’s ride or die

    Turn on, turn on the ignition
    Everybody
    Come on, come on and turn on the ignition

    As can be seen from the discussion, folks were so distracted by the tune and instrumentation that they didn’t hear, and didn’t appreciate, the message of the words.

    The conversation so far as focused on what music is or is not appropriate.

    I suggested in my last comment that we need to think of something else, too. If this is intended to invite people, and instead it is turning them off, it’s a poor marketing decision. It shows a disconnect between the promoters and the target audience.

    IGNITION is a young adult leadership summit and training–the people who will go to it, and to “Just Claim It,” of which it is part, are young adults who are active in the Seventh-day Adventist church.

    Let’s say the music was chosen in an attempt to be “relevant” to “postmodern” young adults who are not attending church and need to be reached. I’d suggest the two groups are in very different places–and what appeals to one, will not appeal to the other. Now, to be sure, there is diversity in both. I’m just throwing this out as a point for discussion.

    Can every event we do be an outreach event? I don’t think so. I think there are times when we, like Jesus, need to pull away from the crowds and spend time with “the twelve,” and even the three or four. We need to nurture, and support, and disciple–and challenge–those who are on fire, and dedicated, and committed, and leading the charge to take the gospel to the world … a world that includes their family and friends.

    Are we right to assume that young adults–whether in the church or in the world–respond best to rap and rock? Are we right to assume that, even if they do, that’s what they want in church? That they want church to mirror life in the world?

    What do you think?

  13. Larry Lyons says:

    It seems that the Advnetist church has had at least 40 some years of trying to use an entertainment based approach to keeping our young people in the church and reaching out to other young people. This has increased and spread little by little and now seems to be presented by the church as the accepted approach for ministering to young people. This is in spite of any evidence that it has decreased the trend of youth leaving the church. Young people are still leaving the church. Local churches still lament the fact that the young people leave and question what can be done to keep them.

    The bright spot in the picture is the success of the General Youth for Christ (GYC) movement. This is a grass roots movement that already has demonstrated success in keeping and attracting youth. They reject the use of pop or rock based music. No drama, puppets, clowns, flag waving or so called praise teams, or any other of the shallow trappings of the typical events that attempt to minister to young people. There is an atmosphere of reverence, and messages and sermons of substance, and the young people respond. They already involved in successful campus ministries. I wonder why GYC isn’t modelled by the church in their youth and young adult programs.
    I wonder why
