Music

Ok, why is it that christians say that thye don't listen to seclure music and yet they know every word to the songs. it really gets me when people start singing to the song and u ask them if they know what it means and they say no. for all they know they are singing to a song about someone having sex. then u get the responds that are "oh, i just like the beat." it doesn't matter if u like the beat or not u are still listening to the song which then the words are getting inside ur head. i am not just preaching to everyone except me. i have been caught up in the moment once in awhile. why do we keep on doing it though. leave a comment or email me and tell me what u think.

Wow - that's so true Alicia...isn't it crazy how satan lies to us to get us to rationalize why we do certain things? we can sit here and say we just like the beat or sound of something, and it's his way of seeping into our thoughts. i'm reminded of a verse i memorized at the beginning of the semester, "we demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of GOD, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to CHRIST" (2 cor 10:3)...it's like by listening to a song, we are welcoming into our minds the message of that song - but God calls us to take every thought captive, part of which i think is to "filter" what we allow to come into our minds. Hey - thanks for nailing that home for me...it's definitely something we all struggle with!

I realize that there are those groups who are targetting a certain audience and all that. However, when it is all said and done, every artist has a message. They are preaching loud and strong to any audience that will stop and listen. The problem is too many Christians are stopping and listening. It kind of reminds me of Psalm 1:1 "Blessed is man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stands in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers." Notice the walk, stand, sit thing. It's like something gets their attention, they stop where they are going, stand and listen and eventually sit down. I think that is exactly the agenda of these artist. If they can stop people long enough to buy into their music, eventually they will be standing and listening to what they have to say. However, I would love for someone to convince me that these artists don't have an agenda and that their motives are pure and that they are largely ignorant of how they are corrupting people with their lyrics. Please, please tell me I'm being too critical.

I think that the shows we watch on TV and the movies that we watch are worse than a lot of the "secular" songs on the radio. The music that i think is bad is the stuff that is anti-god or satanic. A lot of the music that people think is bad actually talks about God in their songs and stuff in a good way. Until we stop watching secular TV and movies then I don't have a problem with listening to secular music that probably has more of a good reference to God than TV and movies.

This is not so cool to me, I dont think that we should judge people for making music. We made music for self expression anyways. Just think about what im sayin'. PEACE
