    LL Cool J - No Crew Is Superior

    I agree that boom bap is still alive, but not commercially. That is why LL choosing to rhyme over wack beats is so disappointing.

    LL Cool J - No Crew Is Superior

    Of course I heard the beat change. It got worse. I was actually holding out some hope on the intro. I agree with AJ, LL has not slipped, not even a little bit. He has to have the courage to resist the temptation to accept wack production just because it is the norm these days. After all, he's rich and has a fantastic acting career, which should give him the ability to defy compromise when it comes down to his first love, his music. Stand up and be true to the boom bap!

    COOLIO PERFORMANCE NEWZ

    Quiet as it's kept, $3000 is about the going rate for artists on the current level of Coolio (and myself), and a bucket of chicken sounds like a better spread than one or two other gigs that I have done with him... I'm sure that it was the bottle of Patron that sealed the deal. That is the hardest item to get on your rider. :laugh:

    Jam-On The Groove

    Pardon the spam fam! Yo y'all, next week Saturday, April 25th, at 5PM EST, 10PM GMT, my son DJ Dogtrane and I return to Global Funk Radio with our new show, Jam-On The Groove! We've changed the name because this show will be drastically improved in production value over the old, as it will be fully incorporated with my studio equipment. Dogtrane will be doing his usual live megamixes and mash-ups. If you guys haven't heard him before then ask somebody, the kid is dope! I will be doing my share of mixing and record playing, spinning themes and vibes, and playing LOTS of what is rockin', new, or coming, but I also from time to time will be previewing what is presently being worked on in my studio, and even throwing together a few live mixes and jam sessions. I GUARANTEE you that it will be unlike any other show that you have ever heard before! For those of y'all who are not familiar with our old show, this will NOT be a strictly Electro or Hip-Hop oriented program. Dogtrane may play anything (and mash it up with anything), and so as not to stifle him I will not try to change that outside of the occasional reminder about GFR's core audience. I on the otherhand, will play a LOT of Electro and Breakbeat, but I am prone to go into Funk, Jazz or even Disco or House excursions, and make no promises about anything. Our main goal though, is to entertain you, and for that purpose we will be pulling out no stops! So, CHECK US OUT!!! Oh, and come and join us in the chatroom! Here is the link to GFR: http://www.globalfunkradio.com/ Here is the link to the stream: http://www.globalfunkradio.com/listen.m3u And here is the link to the podcasts (many of the old shows are there too): http://www.globalfunkradio.com/shows/jamon/ EZ, Coz p.s. the CET time on the flyer is an hour early. I will be fixing that as soon as I get a chance. :-/

    Christian History

    You see it as futile because I gave you a whole history, with 3 separate instances where Jesus affirms Peter as the rock. You agree to the concept, and then have a blatant disconnect in recognizing the connection. We affirm the rock of the Church as Peter and then every successive heir to St. Peter's throne. It's straightforward, it's backed by biblical quotes, and it's frustrating to hear you heave old, worn, broken accusations against credibility in text. :thumbsup:

    Christian History

    And the first Pope, in St. Peter, is defined in the Bible. The concept of the Pope is not a result, directly or indirectly of the Paganism present. The concept of the physical living Church was present before the Bible was compiled. The system was set by Jesus, as I previously quoted. The Church Magesterium was pivotal in defining many of the things upon which Protestants and Catholics to this day agree. For instance, the Nicene Creed spells out the concept of the Trinity, a word/term never spoken in the Bible. Yet only the Jehova Witnesses and Church of Latter Day Saints refute the perfect trinity concept. OK, I see this is futile. If you refuse to acknowledge the immense influence of Paganism on the Catholic Church there is nothing for us to talk about. To say that "the system was set by Jesus" (and you quoted no such thing) without a scintilla of evidence or even evidence of evidence renders this totally a discussion on faith, and on that I'll leave you to yours if you leave me to mine. As for the Nicene Creed and the Trinity and it's almost universal (amongst Christians) acceptance, I suppose that had nothing to do with the official suppression and persecution of Arianism by the Church and the Roman Empire. I suppose Jesus set that too. :shake:

    Christian History

    The point was whether Bill Maher was correct in saying that the Pope wasn't in the Bible. The Pope is much more than simply the leader of the Church. The concept of the Pope owes much more to the Roman Paganism that it was developed from than it does to the Judaic concepts of Jesus, Peter and the Apostles.

    Christian History

    Go to the original language, and you'll see "Kephas" (sorry about the spelling). Peter was the first Pope. The Pope is the Bishop of Rome, as the other Apostles are Bishops as well. Peter is consulted in issues of faith in the New Testament. Peter, Petros, Kephas, Pope all are under the root idea that Jesus left the keys to the Kingdom (in the next verse) to Peter. I do Catholic Apologetics, so I'm very well aquainted with the history of the question you raise. If you see Matthew 16:18-19, you first see Jesus make Peter the rock. (Some question translations, trying to say a gender difference in the translation of rock, but it really is an issue of Jesus masculinizing the word rock in the original written language, as to not call Peter a female rock...but that's deep into the discussion, not neccessarily what you raise) Then you can look later in John 21:15-17 where Jesus reaffirms Peter as the leader of his sheep. And then finally, so to not confuse the power granted to Peter with the positions of the other Apostles, Jesus affirmed the faith of the other Apostles in him as the leader of the visible Church (Luke 22:32). So when all said and done, yes, there is the Pope, the leader of the Church directly in the New Testament. This is all an aside when recognizing the Bible doesn't constitute all of Christianity, considering it's compilation happened long after Jesus died and Christianity began. That's the oral tradition that many miss. Yet the scriptures didn't come until decades after the death of Jesus, and his Apostles were already practicing the sacraments (like reconciliation John 20:23) that were later affirmed in the written portion of the faith. So I hope that cleared up any confusion. Kephas means rock, petros means rock, Peter means rock, Pope means father. Yes, Jesus made Peter the leader of the Church, of that there is no doubt. However, the Pope is the Bishop of Rome and neither term appears in the Bible. Maher was right. If you want to start another thread to delve more deeply into the Bible and Christian history I'd be more than happy to participate, as I have studied both fairly extensively for the last 32 years. I would like to see this conversation continue, so I moved it over here. One question I have is, and forgive the simplicity of it, I have not studied the bible extensively, nor have I ever been Catholic, however: even if Peter was in fact leader of the Church, why does that translate in there being a concept of a Pope, why didn't that role end with Peter? It doesn't. When Jesus appointed Peter and established The Church with His Apostles it was their belief that Judgement would come within their lifetimes. Therefore there was no real reason to set up the kind of Church structure and hierarchy to last generations, let alone centuries. It is a gigantic leap to say that because Jesus made Peter the head of His Church in the Bible that the concept of the Pope was defined there. That concept was developed and defined over centuries.

    Chapter and verse please? :sipread: Matthew 16:18 The very reason why Jesus changed Simon's name to Peter (Petros, Pope, Rock) was to establish a man who would hold the keys to the Church and lead the visible Church on earth. Peter means rock, but Pope means father. It is the traditional title given to the Bishop of Rome. Though tradition also holds that Peter was the first Bishop of Rome, there is no mention of a Pope or a Bishop or Peter even traveling to Rome in the Bible.

  24. And that comes right back around to the root of what Kasparov questioned...How do you know? How can you say people in a historically oppressed police state ever honestly supported the leaders? Polls won't tell you. I mean look at U.S. sentiment some 5 years ago towards Putin: the majority of our Congress and of course our President took him as an 'ok' guy who has finally 'saw the light.' What this tells us is that international thought is also fickle. The most bare understanding of internal sentiment of the people in Russia is through the opposition party. It's the case in Zimbabwe, and almost any other turmoil filled place. Oh come on, are you trying to say that Peter The Great and Catherine The Great aren't beloved figures in Russian history? Please. :shakehead: What about what Catherine did to Radishchev? Or her conveinently not doing anything regarding her husband's murderers? Or the fact she was ignorant to all the problems around her in the highest structures of that government? I never said that she was a saint, but she was no more corrupt or oppressive than the other European monarchs of her time, and she was beloved by the Russian people. Still is.
