The Holy Spirit and Korn

Seems like if you are going to blog about these guys and feature the book cover you could at least read the book. I am confused about Fieldy. On the one hand you say he quit drugs and drinking. On the other hand, he says he hasn't quit anything. Which is it? Could you enlighten us? If he hasn't quit anything then it's another case of rushing to push a convert or potential convert into unwarranted, destructive celebrity.

I know only what he's said in the press (check the links), which seems a little mixed to me. He's says he's born-again and sober, but also doesn't want to be classified as anybody's label. So as Jonathan Edwards suggested centuries ago, religious passion is proven by fruit of the spirit over time. <br><br>But my point is that the Spirit is wrestling with Korn, in ways most of us as Christians would never consider doing ourselves. <br>

Great post. Just from the comments you gotta have way more respect for Head. I think he truly understands what it means to give your life to Christ. While Fieldy looks to be on the right track, it seems that he hasn't totally given his life over to God. I think it's weird that he's so opposed to saying he's changed. The Bible says we become new people, while Fieldy seems hung up on remaining the same. Of course I could be totally wrong, just my opinion from your post.

yes i agree with you. let us not jump into conclusions or be too judgemental for the Wind moves in ways that often confound us. their spiritual journey and experience may not fit our own patterns but it is undeniable that the Holy Spirit's power can and, it seems to me, is moving in the life of this band. it is a great testimony to God's grace and love that is powerful i suggest we continue to pray for them and anticipite the awesome deeds God is going to do in their lives.

From a limited bit of reading the links, I think that he's trying to distance himself from the actions of Head, rather than denying that anything has changed. From the sounds of it, Head simply cut ties completely with everything, and I'm guessing that was a painful experience for the rest of the band. Fieldy seems to want to avoid that kind of breakage. If you read the full interview from where he says that, he also talks about Christ being his rehab - pretty full on! My guess is that he's trying to say to his friends that becoming a Christian hasn't made him some weird, different person.

Thank you Father for we all have sinned and fall short. You love us unconditionally and with that comes the peace that you give with grace and respect. Let them grow in Christ Jesus and both of them will hear the whisper. Love you. In God's Grace John

It is still amazing to me that people do not expect this sort of thing to happen. Why is it that we assume people who are so in touch with the pain of the world would not be blown away by the grace that God offers?<br><br>Maybe its because they have not seen God's grace through his people?<br><br>Just a thought.

i think what he meant was that he didn't quit being himself. sure, he quit drugs and all that, but that's not really who he is as a person.

Genesis 50:20 comes to mind. What we intend for evil he turns into good. Amazing to be able to notice HIS works so easily once you know HIM.
