So I tried to make an account on that site...

Too many strings attached... so I will make my reply here.

Just take in the prior knowledge you failed to research about Impending Doom through any lyrics, interviews, or other reliable source. Their approach in spreading the gospel can be found in these lyrics:

Silence the Oppressors

To the following Christians listen closely.
We bring our light to a new realm, a realm you dare not enter,
Passing judgment behind stone walls, behind your absence of understanding.
We will crush your walls that dictate where our ministry goes,
Don't you ever tell me I'm using God as a gimmick.
I'm not a heretic, I'm not a hypocrite;
Those insults make me sick from the ones I have fellowship with.
We aren't doing this for our own, but for one name holy and alone.
These venues are our church,
We are the gospel in the darkness, and this is our exaltation.
We are the gospel in the darkness; we bring our light to a new realm,
A realm you dare not enter, passing judgment behind stone walls,
Behind your absence of understanding.
Are you listening!!!
We'll crush the walls that dictate where our ministry goes,
This is our church, this is our worship, GORSHIP!


"Boosh Dingo" in order of all of your visual posts, starting with the Sonshine 2010 video

Sonshine festival is a Christian festival, meant for spirit-filled bands. The audience is there to participate in worship lead by these bands, Impending Doom being one of them. Don't you think if these organizers of an all-ages festival dedicated to serving the Lord would do a bit of research, background check, interview, etc. to make a fair-judgement if the bands should participate in their festival? The "baphomet sign" you pointed out the crowd using, has a meaning that, in this day and age, is completely user defined. At any metal show I have been in (both Christian AND secular) they're never defined as blasphemy or "devil horns", but as metal hands, metal horns, rock horns, something to show appreciation for the music.

Inverted Cross shirt:
St. Peter was crucified UPSIDE DOWN
Debtor, the name on this logo, is one of the most spirit-filled hardcore bands I have ever listened to. Their theology is Biblical, solid. Do you consider martyrdom as blasphemy? Because I've only known of MARTYRS FOR CHRIST being crucified upside. Whatever movement to take upside crucifixes as rebellion against God only more gave truth the The Beatitudes of Jesus As in Matthew 5 10-12 NIV:

"10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
      for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 11"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."


Upside-crosses should be more understood as a symbol of martyrdom, which any who claims to be a disciple of Christ should be willing to accept upon themselves. There is more Biblical precedence for an upside-down crucifix than the spiritually-dead cathedral in my town, where symbolism (idolatry) and "doing the right thing" are god, NOT Christ.


T-shirt: Do you not notice the dead "priest" with the dollar symbols right in front of the ouroboros? The picture is rebuking the Catholic idolatry of saints. 




Look similar? Catholicisms portrayal and philosophies on the saints are NOT Biblical by any means, they're pure, textbook idolatry. I could go on and on about how twisted the theology of the Catholic church is, but the point is that Impending Doom is pointing out the true nature of these images. The ouroboro you pointed out is the saint's halo. Do the math.

The picture after that is NOT the same band, it's a band from GERMANY. 

Read your pictures before you post them, realize that the Impending Doom band of the subject is this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impending_Doom

SO the next logo could quite easily be more related to the German band than the US band.

And that last video does not stand for any support in your argument, you cannot see hardly any of the symbols to which you are trying to point out. EVEN IF, they were there, you must understand that Christian Hardcore/Metal/Core bands who establish themselves as bold Christians will use bold statements. Just as Christ was called a heretic for crimes of "blasphemy" which were blatantly proven wrong, these bands undergo the similar, if not the criticism. They take the themes, music, art form etc., which were predominantly open to artistic interpretation, pushed into satanic stereotypes, and reach out to youth who would naturally be attracted to the themes. An even better purpose yet, they'll prove the ignorance of modern "Christians" and how set in tradition and shallow theology they are.

The symbols Impending Doom uses are used in rebellion to satan, as the satanic symbols were originally against God.

Do not be so blind. Check your own faith, check your own Biblical knowledge, find wisdom in it.

Give Me One Reason...

to NOT make an account to whatever site this is and shed some light on ignorant, typical "Christian" logic

I'm Trying, and Failing

But for the first time in a very long time, I have hope in  your work in me.

I seek immediate repentance
Consistent resistance
Growth
Renewal

Build a Monument

Make a commemoration to what God has done in your life whenever He moves.

Don't let the rocks cry out.

God

Obviously I'm not in as much need as I need for you to help me.
I'm not crying out to you loud enough.
My notes don't match the appropriate consonance to catch your ear.
This pain doesn't ache badly enough for the need to be healed.
It's just right in the middle.

Not small enough to go away.
Not big enough for any type of intervention.


But this is all my own fault.
I took all this into my own hands.
And just as before, I have failed myself.
And when I cry out to you, I can never understand,
Why I don't stop feeling lonely.
Why I just want to hide away from every person I know (no one excluded from that)
And never get the false hope that I'll pull through.
Because I won't.
And I'm sick of being teased by optimism.

Please prove me wrong.

You Will Never Notice Me

And I'll never stop trying

While You are Reading This

You could be making something happen, as opposed to waiting for something to happen.

"We can't bring about change if apathy prevails
But if we can learn to look past ourselves, past our mediocre lives
we can begin to hope to make a difference.
One life is all we have
To stand up and be counted.
To see that this is all worth something
And we will start to see the change.


And we'll become the change."
-The End of Apathy by Take It Back!

Fasting

From Facebook starting today 10/3/10 to a minimum of 2 weeks, but I'm shooting for a month.
I waste so much time on that website waiting for conversation to happen, and it always leads me down undesirable paths. I want to take the time I spent there and devote it to God.

And I'm done with Tumblr. It is a bigger waste of time and is too much engrossed in worldly values for me to be comfortable with when I'm alone.

I'll be on blogger, hxcchristian.com/forum, Skype (falloneus), and my cell phone. And email fallonbraddy@gmail.com
Myspace is NOT a big deal though, I just go on there for music

Goals to accomplish upon fasting:

1. Reread Gospels
2. Not be stressed with homework
3. Do some recording/writing
4. Stage dive
5. Pray. A lot.

And periodically post some "Bible Study" things based on some albums I've been digging lately.

Reflect

There truly is nothing more enlightening than a reflection.
Seeing how you were in the past
Relating where change is absent
Relating where change happened
I truly thought that this blog was just where I posted my feelings of hopelessness
But God truly has made an impact on me in a way I've never seen, but have been so active in.
A relentless motivation to never give up on myself, my God, or this world I've been sent to.
I look at my pain and depravity through a lens of encouragement.

I am not as alone as I feel.
I am as alone as long as I wait behind the rest of you.

I am not as bland as I thought of myself.
I am as bland as the grip of pity is permitted to take hold.

I am not as hopeless as I believed I was.
I am hopeless when I reject the hope that is handed to me.
