1  Entertainment / Music / Avenged Sevenfold on: September 14, 2004, 08:23:18 PM
what are people's opinions of avenged sevenfold?  their name is straight out of the bible, (check out Gen 4:15  "...if anyone kills Cain, he will suffer vengance seven times over."  NIV)  I throughly enjoy their music but the monikers the band members have taken seem highly questionable.  What are you guys thoughts?

Five Iron Frenzy is no longer around.  They released their last cd "The End Is NearHere" last year.  Reese Roper has a side project band called Brave Saint Saturn.  it's classified in a genre called space rock.  not quite ska, but not bad to listen to.

i saw this thread and I couldn't help but respond.  First off to
aiki storm : hollywood makes fun of everyone.  Ever seen van wilder?  blazing saddles?
sinksf : i want to know what bubble you live in where there are no hypocritical christians.  In my church there are many hypocrites.  Not everyone is perfect, people make mistakes.  I'm sure you have made mistakes and then told others to do differently.  That makes you a hypocrite also.
++blood bought++ : have you or any others blasting this film actually seen it?  it is accurate in it's portrayal of some christians.  I've been to christian schools all my life, I've been in church all my life.  This film made me uncomfortable at some points it was so accurate.  I've known friends and family to act in the same "holier than thou" attitude that Mandy Moore's character portrays.  I could go on and on with example of that.
jitc : it's an exaggeration.  there are some militant christians that give the others a bad name.  If someone professes Jesus and then bombs places that will be noticed.  That joke is a stereotype of the militant christians.
msguidedangel : How is it not ok to poke fun at christians?  did some of these ideas from the film hit too close to home for comfort?  Is it not ok, because there is truth in these jokes.  There are a lot of christians that act that way.

Sometimes it's hard to face the truth, this is how some christians are perceived.  It's up to those who don't act like that to change the view.  Lead by actions, not by blasting a movie that makes a ton of good points.
