Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C. Ryle ----- [NEW AND IMPROVED BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

8:26 AM - The Beatles: Idols of CCM Musicians

(excerpt)

One of the reasons why we are opposed to Contemporary Christian Music is its worldliness, its refusal to separate from the world. Contemporary Christian musicians make no attempt to hide the fact that they love secular rock & roll and they have no shame for doing so. When asked in interviews about their musical influences and their favorite music, invariably they list some raunchy secular rock musicians.

And one of the rock groups that CCM musicians love is the Beatles.

The Beatles' influence in creating the modern New Age pop culture is incalculable. Brian Epstein, the Beatles' homosexual manager, said in 1964, "The children of the 21st century will be listening to the Beatles," and he was right ("Beatles Business: Still Making Money 50 Years One," CNBC, Jan. 24, 2014). They have sold some 2.3 BILLION albums and records. In June 2012 they were had the number one hit on iTunes, nearly a half century after they first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show on their rocket launch to super-stardom. The compilation album of their No. 1 hits released in 2000 was the top-selling album between 2000 and 2010. Beatles courses are taught at universities.

And the Beatles are loved and appreciated as much by the contemporary Christian music crowd as by the unbelieving world at large.
