Re: Your thoughts on Christian lyrics
I was speaking of watching a show on the History Channel like “The Universe”. There are some things they say that are based out of their own assumptions and others that are fact. I’m pretty sure the people creating the show aren’t Christian. I don’t think a demon is behind the show trying to overpower everyone who watches. I think they are some guys trying to figure out how things work. They are searching.
By your definition, you must think that if something isn’t created by a Christian then it must have a demon behind it. This is not so. You have to give some credit to man. We are not a puppet of the devil or of God. We have a choice. In very rare instances, when someone is possessed, they are under control of an evil spirit. But that is the exception and not the rule. To many people give too much credit to the devil and the demons when it’s mostly mankind who succumbs to the evil desires of the flesh which need to be healed by the blood of Jesus and a life of living for Him through communion and discipline.
I’m sure it wasn’t because David went around saying, “The Lord is with me”. It was because of the way he lived his life and the testimony of others. When it comes to writing music most of the population needs lyrics to connect so you are better off writing lyrics. But lyrics are not needed in a song for it to be inspirational towards Christ. Art is interpreted in different ways by different people. EDM mirrors classical music (loosely) in some ways.
Look at these lyrics. viewtopic.php?f=51&p=19930#p19268
Is Mark Knight a Christian? If he is he isn’t putting it out there. Does that matter? What if he released this song and he isn’t a Christian?
All I know is that I’m buying this track and will use it to minister to people when I DJ.
Music may change in the end but it doesn’t conciously sin like us. It is a product of the free will of man. It’s like wine. Some’s just better than others.
