I’d say that music is created not by the Satan; [it is] created by the Lord. All issues have been created by God. So as an alternative of considering that the Satan owns a style of music, I’d say seize that music and produce it again into subjection underneath the lordship of Christ.”
As for what he would say to somebody who says it’s sinful for Christians to have tattoos, Cooper mentioned: “I perceive why Christians suppose that, due to the Outdated Testomony.

However a brief model can be there are some issues within the Outdated Testomony that have been an image of one thing within the New Testomony. There are some issues which might be not footage, like homicide — we do not homicide, we do not steal, so and so forth. Dietary restrictions, issues like that, have been an image of one thing.
“Here is what God needed: God needs to make his individuals set aside and holy unto his identify,” he continued. “And I do not suppose that God does that any longer from the way in which that we glance; he does that now due to Christ’s work on the cross, his resurrection, and he sanctifies us, which units us aside from the sinner and the pagan.”
Cooper just lately revealed his first e-book, titled “Awake & Alive To Reality (Discovering Reality In The Chaos Of A Relativistic World)”. It “tackles the reigning philosophies of our day of post-modernism, relativism, and the favored view of the goodness of man-and combats these viewpoints by standing on absolutely the fact of the Phrase Of God,” the e-book’s description reads.
