    ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Well after the recent news about the shooting of Dimebag Darrel, I found this news to be rather refreshing. It would seem that ex-guitarist and founding member of korn Brian Welch was baptized in the River Jordan in KIBBUTZ KINNERET, Israel just 3 hours ago.

    I say may God bless and use him to spread a good message to the youth of this country, and the world.

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Wow...I remember seeing Korn in concert in my younger days. Interesting also that I stayed not very far from Kibbutz Kinneret last summer...


    I don't know how to put this, but...I'm kind of a big deal...People know me.

    I've heard of Korn but never heard their music. Cool that he's become a Christian though.

    God is God. God is neither male or female, but if refered to as Father in the Bible. (Which is the Word of God).

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    I'm not religious, and I don't believe in god, in any form. I believe there is nothing after death. But I do find it amazing the good things that religion can do for humanity......I'd hate to ponder what the world would be like without it. So good for him. From reading the article, he needed some salvation from a downward spiraling life. Personally, I'm always waiting for the day where something drastic changes my mind about things.....it'd be soooo much easier believing that there was something after death.

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Yes, you're right, the Bible was written by men....but all scripture is God breathed/inspired (2 Tim 3:16). Which means it came from God, either from the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit (God, the three in one, Trinity). Which means that even though it has been translated into many different languages God would not allow it to be tainted in any way, shape, or form. In fact when compairing all the 'modren' versions of the Bible (and I'm talking NRSV, NIV, Today's English, MKJV) to the dead sea scrolls (Contains such books as Isaiah) there was very little difference between the two.

    I personally think it's awesome whenever anyone gives their life over to Christ, weather they're a well known figure, such as the guitarist from Korn, or just a Bob Smith living on the Street.

    Apparently you don't really share that sentiment, otherwise you wouldn't have responded in such a condescending way. Try not to be so obvious, Paul.

    Yes, like a photo of God would do you any good. Cain spoke face to face with God, and yet he still refused to believe God. What makes you so different?

    Besides, God has already given a picture of himself in Jesus Christ. The Scripture teaches us that Christ is the express image of God. Learn of him, and you'll see God. Choose to remain ignorant about him, and you'll never get to see him.

    Speaking of DB Darrel, here a few pictures that I took of him this past spring. Vinnie and my little brother are in Las Vegas as we speak.

    Actually Cain just spoke to God, not face to face. No man has been able to look right at the face of God, since it's so glorious it would kill a human. The only person who has seen God in his heavenly form (father/creator) is Moses and then it was only God's back, not front. And still Moses face glowed afterwards so much that he had to cover his face to prevent people from going blind. A photo of God, well that'd break your camera and kill you.

    Besides, God has already given a picture of himself in Jesus Christ. The Scripture teaches us that Christ is the express image of God. Learn of him, and you'll see God. Choose to remain ignorant about him, and you'll never get to see him.
    Absolutly! Christ is God in a way that we can understand and interact with!

    Well, did not Jacob did say that he saw God face to face? Of course God has been known to appear in theophanies, so I can see how this would be quite possible. But you are correct...no man has seen God in all his glory. Some people think that if they could just see God then they'd believe, when the fact is one would still have to take God by faith regardless of seeing him in some physical form.

    Christ is God in a way that we can understand and interact with!
    This is refreshing to hear. I'm getting tired of hearing people say we can't understand God when we most certainly can--through Christ.

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Well, did not Jacob did say that he saw God face to face?
    Yes, you're right there. (Gen 32:22-32). But as it says in vs. 24 'So Jacob was left alone and wrestled with a man until daybreak'. Then in vs 30 'So Jacob called the place peniel, saing, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.'

    So this is perhapes the first appearance of God in human form.

    take God by faith regardless of seeing him in some physical form
    That is what faith is, believing in something, in this case God/Christ/Holy Spirit, and the death/resurection of Christ without seeing it.

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Ray,

    you crack me up!

    Why do you think that you know my thoughts, my faith(or lack of ?), my TRUE nature and most importantly.... MY ABNORMAL SENSE OF HUMOR? I assure you MY HEART is PURE and I do not FEAR the truth ONCE you discover it.

    YOUR BIBLE may have these verses....

    James 4:4 and James 4:11 wait those to me read DO NOT judge and churches are adultresses

    Matthew 7:1 and Matthew 7:17-20..... WHICH ONE DO WE FOLLOW?

    John 7:24 OK, do we judge our fellow man or not?

    and Romans 2:1 OH I LIKE THIS ONE

    1 Corinthians 4:5 ... PONDER THIS why don't you

    Romans 14:10 .....AMEN

    1 Corinthians 5:3.... OH NO.... GOD is everywhere, so he does truely know me and my HEART

    You truely need to rethink what you have just written next time, because those seemed to be JUDGEMENTAL words you wrote. BUT WAIT.... the Bible is unclear as to it's stand on that matter anyway

    NOW I'VE DONE IT.


    Almo....

    I truely am sorry that my comments were not taken as nothing more than a poke in the ribs (PHOTOGRAPHYREVIEW/ IMAGE of GOD....get it)

    I do think it's GREAT that he has chosen a religious path over a drug addiction

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    villenadecorte, recently we posted guidelines for posting here in Viewfinder. It was decided that religious/political/etc posts were OK - as long as everyone stays civil. Discussions like this will heat up, but it seems like everyone is pretty respectful of one another. As long as it stays like that, we probably won't change anything.

    I agree that posts like this have no direct connection with photography, but it is a way for members to get to know each other. Sometimes understanding someone's background helps when looking at their work. Personally, I usually stay out of these discussions...

    Doesn't this fall under the "Philosophy" heading? After all, Viewfinder is kind of a free for all anyways, isn't it?

    [quote=almo]Well after the recent news about the shooting of Dimebag Darrel, I found this news to be rather refreshing[quote]
    Yes, very refreshing indeed. "Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters."

    (oh, by the way, his title does sound a bit like a National Enquirer headline, )

    This then is the Divine Mystery Paul. God is so far beyond our comprehension (infinite in fact) that labeling God as female or male is useless (you forgot that she is black too ). We think of God in human terms in order to understand, but that does not mean we fully understand God. And yes, "Judge not for you shall be judged with the same measure you use...". But Jesus also said, "Go therefor and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you". You have a wonderful sense of humor Paul, and God loves you too. God bless.

    It seems to me that this thread got out of hand by people who felt the need to speak out against religion instead of just leaving the topic fade into obscurity. I didn't notice the original poster preaching or quoting any bible verses but merely quoting a news article not unlike many other off topic posts on PR. Lighten up people; just because someone mentions religion doesn't mean that's a que for everyone to start a debate. I'm happy for the guy and glad he turned his life around. 'Nuff said.

    SOUND TO ME LIKE YOU JUST MIGHT GET MY POINT and UNDERSTAND my comments.

    I find humor in just about anything, but that seems to get me into debates(which I wish I never entered). I am far from being a moron, so I can debate ANYTHING if I choose to

    NOBODY on this bourd truely knows me, but I assure you Penny knows me the best....

    Penny, feel free to discuss the REAL me that you have gotten to know with ANYONE!!! My only request is to not publicly discuss me (as in post here for the world to read)

    Re: ex-Korn guitarist finds God!

    Well thank you for clearing that up- I didnt know that there was even a decision on such a thing. I found the original posters topic to yes, be obscure and interesting... but the "same old argument" following to just be out of place.
    Maybe these types of posts SHOULD have some connection with photography?? If people feel so compelled to discuss religious beliefs, why not go at it artistically and convey through photography how you feel about your beliefs? Atleast it would be more enjoyable that reading the same ol' debate!

    Cheers,
