In late 2009, the Deep Forgiveness devotional series was scheduled to launch with “award-winning artists from the major labels, as well as outstanding independent talents.” One of these artists was BarlowGirl. In the Deep trailer, there is stock footage of BarlowGirl in concert, followed by Alyssa Barlow wearing a purple coat and purity ring walking on the street alone. In the latter clip, her two sisters are nowhere in sight while she appears to be mouthing some words from “Sweet Revenge”: “’till you feel this pain too.” In the clip above, I preserve the original MPEG-4 video file while adding the “Sweet Revenge” audio. (If Theora is selected, it is re-encoded.)
Raze was a CCM pop group based in Tulsa, Oklahoma founded by Ja’Marc Davis, a former dancer for CCM star Carman. Other Raze members included Donnie Lewis, J.D. Webb, and Mizzie Logan, though Webb was replaced by Todd Hanebrink in 2000. The group had at least two No. 1 Christian radio singles, but it all came to an abrupt end on March 1, 2001, when Davis was arrested for child molestation. The remainder of Raze only did a few more concerts before calling it quits. Continue reading
One of the purity ministries that BarlowGirl partnered with back in 2008 was Dannah Gresh’s Secret Keeper Girl. The ministry began in 2002, when Gresh published Secret Keeper: The Delicate Power of Modesty, a devotional book about modesty and purity. Secret Keeper Girl later grew into an international phenomenon: the series sold over 1.5 million books, and over 280,000 girls attended live shows.

Upon watching an atheist channel, I heard of the Christian film “Second Glance”, which featured a promotional trailer for the 1998 Christian film “Pamela’s Prayer”. I watched the movie with an open mind because it seemed like it had the kind of doctrine that BarlowGirl taught… well, at least before the three sisters’ pattern of compromise unmasked in recent years. With that in mind, here is my quick review of what this movie has to offer. Continue reading
I just came across this snippet and thought of sharing it on the website.
Fervent Records’ rock trio BarlowGirl and the Air 1 radio network have announced the winner of the contest that gave listeners the chance to win a trip for 4 to Chicago to site see and go Christmas shopping on the famous Michigan Avenue with BarlowGirl.
The winner and family’s trip also included some highlight experiences including visiting the Water Tower Place, seeing the city’s beautiful evening lights from the John Hancock Observatory, enjoying Chicago-style pizza, and sitting front row at BarlowGirl’s Apple Store performance.
The three-piece band played a special acoustic set at the Michigan Avenue Apple Store on Saturday, December 12 to kick off the Christmas season. BarlowGirl will be booking similar shows throughout 2010 allowing the band to share the stories behind their songs as well as engage with the audience through a Question and Answer session.
Of all the activities that BarlowGirl could do, the three sisters opt to partake in shopping for the pagan Christmas holiday! Being an Air 1 contest, it was only available in the United States. International fans need not apply. Adding insult to injury, Lauren Barlow does not care if those who don’t “speak American” wish to have her book Inspired by Tozer translated to their native language. Barlow would rather watch and praise a Lady Gaga concert!

The three Barlow sisters partook in the “Funky Jesus Music” video shooting by tobyMac. They appear during a few moments (0:10, 0:16, 0:42, 0:48, 0:56, 1:11 and 1:43) in order to dance to this song set to a worldly rhythm. Where is the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7) in these mademoiselles, in addition to all others who dance in a freaky manner in this video?
After I published my hour-long “BarlowGirl CCM false prophetesses” video on January 16, 2016, I got a lot of heat for it. One committed fan blasted me via tweets and DM. Another one blocked me without ever providing a valid explanation. Over the year, the ratings bar turned into a grey (YouTube) or red (third-party YT apps) lightsaber, so I’m told. One thing is clear: many people enjoy defending BarlowGirl (BG)… but at what cost?
For over two and a half years, from July 2013 to January 2016, I’ve put up with the Barlows and their mediocre behaviour without making a detailed public video rebuke. I’ve put up with their watered-down doctrine that either diminishes or nullifies the importance of Jesus in their lives. I’ve put up with the false accusations throughout that time: I supposedly annoyed them to no end, started filthy conversations (Barlows, shall we take a look at your playlists?), had malicious intentions behind my ministry work and so much more. I’ve put up with BarlowGirl’s family, fans and friends who repeatedly stuck up for the band, no matter how many times they were made aware of the many shortcomings that BG refused to rectify. One person even went as far as to mock the idea that it was inappropriate to enjoy a crooner’s songs about group sex, substance abuse and blasphemy. The frequent response from such people was to stop judging, to examine my own life, to take it easy when it comes to to the morals that BarlowGirl aggressively displayed throughout its career and so forth.
