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.

6:48 PM - Sensuality in Today’s Christian Music

If you take away the lyrics from many of the songs, there is really no difference between the styles of music heard on secular radio today and what is often played in churches as worship.

I started playing drums in the 5th grade, while I was also playing the cornet, the piano, and singing in school and church choruses. I've always enjoyed music and during my growing up years, we enjoyed Bubble Gum favorites like "Sugar, Sugar" (The Archies), "Cherry Hill Park" (Billy Joe Royal), "Dizzy" (Tommy Roe), and a host of other tunes that were upbeat (and you could dance to them).

It was during those same days in church that the music there was completely separate. People sang hymns which were filled with theological truth with a musical accompaniment that matched the majesty of the lyrics. The world's music remained securely in the world and the hymns remained a staple of worship.

But then the 1960s hit with a fervor and secular music changed big time. Gone was the Bubble Gum, in exchange for the harder edges of the Beatles' music, which had once sounded so innocuous ("I wanna hold your hand!"). In fact, with the British Invasion, secular music took on a more hardcore flavor and pursuit. It became more provocative and even sensual to a degree, with songs like "Sympathy for the Devil" (Rolling Stones) and many others.
