I don't appreciate it....or cursing for that matter. It's not like a nice monet. But I don't mind it, sort of like the cheap, DaVinci forgery.

That's an interesting way to put it Smiley Personally I don't hold unbelievers to my own standards, 1) because without Christ there is no reason to follow those standards and 2) without Christ it is impossible to live up to those standards.

As far as immersing yourself in a culture that can't understand your beliefs, it all comes down to your own spiritual maturity and the maturity of those watching you.

This is the most succinctly correct statement on the Skillet faith issue that I have ever heard.

This. I just can't understand why everyone gets so upset about Skillet and mainstream bands. Surely you've all been exposed to everything negative that would be at a mainstream rock concert anyway, (not that I advocate those things) use it as a chance to connect with non christians and share with them, if nothing else.

That is certainly not the case with everybody, I'm sure many people here haven't had much if any exposure to some of the things that you would find at some mainstream shows.

I'm not sure what John and Chris Daughtry are talking about at the end of this video, but hopefully it's about a future tour together! (or at least about the top 40 singles that John is writing for Skillet's next record).

I watched that video because of what you said and the whole Daughtry thing is nothing, you just see him and hear him laugh, I'm bummed now! Tongue Thanks.

While I doubt they are talking about that, Daughtry would actually be a good band for Skillet to tour with.

Yeah I doubt that's what they were talking about, but I would love to see them tour together! (but I think Skillet needs one or two top 40 singles before that happens). I saw Daughtry live last summer- he puts on an awesome show and their music is heavier/harder when they play it live. I think Skillet and Daughtry would be a great match for a tour.

I think Skillet could tour with Daughtry in anticipation of having top 40 singles, sort of like how they toured with bands like Three Days Grace before really making a dent in active rock radio. But yeah, I think that Daughtry would be an awesome band for Skillet to tour with.

Much better than touring with Nickelback! Man, am I glad Doggy turned that down *whew*.

I would be completely in favor of Skillet touring with Nickelback. I'm not a very big Nickelback fan, but you can't dispute the success they've had in multiple arenas (rock radio, top 40, etc.) and they draw huge crowds for their shows. A lot of people would be exposed to Skillet for the first time, which is pretty much the point of touring right?

It was a choice by management among several options, but Skillet wanted to tour with TobyMac instead. In a later interview (perhaps unrelated though), John mentioned objecting to the lyrics to "Something in Your Mouth".

True, but IMO it be destructive to the Skillet brand in the long run. As weird as it is, having not sold-out to Nickelback-like fame keeps Skillet a Best Kept Secret and something cool to discover.

That makes sense. I can't stand that song, it's so dumb. Tongue
