Are All Christian Bands Good

I am quite confused about the band H.I.M. Musically, I enjoy them but can't help but think their music has a darker meaning. I don't know if I'm misunderstanding, if these lyrics are a metaphor. I've seen photos of the singer with pictures of Jesus on his microphone. But could this be a mockery?

James, you heathen!! If you can dance to it, it MUST be evil :P

King David sure is in trouble then eh
---CraigA on 2/18/11


The words from your favourite "I once was lost" and so on, seem to be a development from Wesley's great old hymn "And can it be"

That is one of my favorites, and it has a super tune.

I wonder what JOHN would make of it? Would he approve because it has an "old" tune? Or disapprove because it has any music?

How would he view it if the tuned were "rocked up"?

Sadly, JOHN, having SHOUTED at us all, has disappeared from this blog.

I wonder if the hymn "I'll fly away" would have been considered too upbeat when it was written.

It's pretty peppy
---James_L on 2/17/11

There are quite a few "traditional" hymns in the church with tunes that were once bawdy drinking tunes sung in bars and pubs.

When they were first written hundreds of years ago it caused quite a bit of conflict in the church much like our contemporary music does today. It was "the devils music" and all that stuff.

Go read "Who Am I" and stop being an old grump.
---CraigA on 2/17/11

My favorite is "And now my lifesong sings"

I once was lost but now I'm found
I once was lost, but now I'm found
So far away, but I'm home now
I once was lost but now I'm found
And now my life song sings...

I once was blind, but now I see
I once was blind, but now I see
I don't know how, but when he touched me
I once was blind, but now I see
And now my life song sings...

I once was dead, but now I live
I once was dead, but now I live
Now my life to You I give
Now my life to You I give
Now my life to You I give

Haleleujah, Hallelejah, Let my lifesong sing to You

---Are they going to see Christ or are you going to "Rock Out" to Casting Crowns (i.e. BLack Sabbath).
--- John

Hahahaha Black Sabbath compared to Casting Crowns?

Youve just proven that you didnt even go listen to them or read their lyrics. If you had, you wouldve come away knowing you were wrong.

I guess some men are just happier hating in the name of Jesus than experiencing joy and peace.

Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Go read "Who Am I" and stop being an old grump.
---CraigA on 2/17/11


Alot of the hymns we now sing were made with the current music genre of that time, some were even disallowed for a time.
What is the criteria that makes up a 'hymn' as opposed to a psalm or spiritual song?
Also to generalize all artists or audience members into a certain structure or mentality is called something.
Anyone care to guess what that word is?
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
---micha9344 on 2/17/11


No John you will not answer ... because if you did you would dig a hole for yourself.

What don't you like about Christian rock?

Is it the fact they have rhythm which is a bit different to that of old style hymn tunes?

Or do you just not like music?

Myself, I don't like rock music, I don'tlike modern worship songs.

Would a Weley or a Samkey or Moody or Newton hymn become a work of the devil when it's tune is jazzed up, or even rocked up, if that is the term?

If so, why?

John, you are wrong in judging another man's heart. And wrong in what you said in your answer to Craig, and meant it for all of us,

"This is the heart of the matter! You see Jesus as an excuse to continue YOUR party life. You never care for Him to be saved(I.E Reborn), only to use His name to cover your lifestyle. "

You said, "you never care for Him to be saved"
We don't care for Him in order to get saved, we are saved by Grace through faith, even when we were dead in trespasses and sin. No one lost cares for Christ. No one seeks after God.
---Mark_V. on 2/17/11


John 3:17
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved...he that believeth not is condemned ALREADY, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Argue with Jesus, PastorJim.

And that Huey Lewis song they played was "The Power of Love". Go look at the lyrics (if you dare) before you make ignorant judgments based on prejudice.

And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?
---CraigA on 2/16/11


Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.
Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Jam 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
---micha9344 on 2/16/11


If Jesus didnt come to condemn men, why do you?
---CraigA on 2/15/11

BUT HE DID AND HE WILL!

This is the heart of the matter! You see Jesus as an excuse to continue YOUR party life. You never care for Him to be saved(I.E Reborn), only to use His name to cover your lifestyle.

This is why you are blind to the turth, you have NO truth in you as your father is a Lier

Jesus did not come so we can all party now, since there is no Judgement. THAT IS A LIE!

OR DID YOU FORGET...

He will come a second time to judge!

NOW YOU SAY..
A "CLEAN" version of Huey Lewis.

Is that not the same as a Nude photo with just certain parts blurred. Does it send the same message anyway?

Cluny,
what's wrong with it is that Jesus said "Whosoever BELIEVES IN Me shall not perish"

He did not say "whosoever FALLS IN LOVE WITH Me..."

He is saying DO NOT BELIEVE IN JESUS, but instead FALL IN LOVE WITH JESUS.

He's not contrasting love with fear, he's contrasting FALLING IN LOVE with faith.

We are saved through faith, not trying to fall in love.

\\He sings about needing "truth" that's gotta to be more like falling in love than something to believe in.

I want to throw up every time I hear that song. He must think Jesus said "whoever falls in love with Me shall not perish?"\\

And what is wrong with this?

St. John said, "Perfect love casts out fear."

Echoing this, St. Anthony the Great said, "I no longer fear God, but I love Him."
---Cluny on 2/16/11


At Charismatic churches, I've seen a lot of people jumping, throwing themselves around, running, laughing, etc, but couldn't get two words into a gospel presentation without getting into error.

BUT, at a lot of conservative churches I been in where people use nothing but hymns, I've seen many people try to present the gospel and utterly fail scripture.

One of the most unbiblical "Christian" songs I have ever heard is by Jason Gray. He sings about needing "truth" that's gotta to be more like falling in love than something to believe in.

I want to throw up every time I hear that song. He must think Jesus said "whoever falls in love with Me shall not perish?"

That song is str8 from hell

Let us get back to subject of the blog people: "Could a nonChristian band whom has pictures of Jesus on his microphone be a mockery?" It could be, but I think nonChristians do this sort of thing more for a type of decoration: after all, most people know that Jesus is the greatest, and these so-called celebrities like to have a part of this greatness, if not only for a superstitious "lucky charm" like a picture or a piece of Christian jewelry to wear.
---Eloy on 2/15/11


I donot know about this band, but stay away from Christian "rock" bands in general. I like hymnal music & would rather see either a person singing solo or a choir singing to hymnal music then a band rocking out on stage. We should be at church to be reverent & give respect to God in a godly manner, NOT treat it like a concert or a BBQ tailgaters party which some churches do.So yes these bands could have the wrong motive.

---CraigA on 2/16/11


John, I can only speak for myself, and am responsible for myself, I believe your discernment does not come from God. No one would ever tell believers not to worship God in songs and raise their hands up high. You have done what no other pastor has done that I know of. What you don't seem to understand is that emotions for Christ plays a big part in a believers life. Depending on the circumstances a person finds himself in life. What you want is someone who is silent with no emotions. You are wrong. We all love the Lord in our own way because we are all different because we feel different emotions. And we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. What we feel inside. Maybe you feel nothing, no emotions, that is you, not me.
---Mark_V. on 2/16/11


MarkV/Craiga/ Mary...

Like apostates you take something out of context, distort it and then argue that distortion.

You cannot argue the point of my posts, Because you know you are engage in evil and knowing that, would make it impossible for you to pray to the same G-d you just been Mocking.

I WILL ANSWER YOUR SATANIC BAIT. THEN YOU GET BACK ON THE TOPIC OF CHRISTIAN ROCK BANDS...

My church plays music, sings, dances, Wave hands some pray with hands up high.

SINCE YOU ARE SATANICALLY DELUDED AND HAVE NO DECERNMENT I WILL SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU.

What happens in YOUR case has NOTHING to do with G-d AT ALL!
EVERYTHING to do with the EMOTIONAL MOOD SET BY THE MUSIC ONLY. SO IT IS WITHOUT G-D = GODLESS!!!
---John on 2/15/11


Shira, I agree with what you say alright, but that is not what John said. He didn't say some people, or a few of them, he included all who wave their hands or raise them in worship. The joy one feels in the things God is doing for us, many times cannot be contain in silence. People don't have to jump up and down, throw themselves on the floor. I don't mean that at all but just worship. We worship God in His word, we worship God in songs and praise and hymns, and we worship Him in prayer. Standing up, kneeling down, or seating down. At Church, home, in the car. Whenever we feel the need to worship Him. And only the devil wants that stopped.

John, you said,
"And I say AMEN MarkV. And I will do so for as long as the Holy Spirit of G-d commands me to. I WILL NOT be silence by Satan or his followers Markv."
Don't you realize you have it the other way around? The Holy Spirit is not going to tell you not to worship God, the Holy Spirit is God. Your the first pastor I heard tell everyone not to worship God in songs, or raise their hands in adoration to the Lord. While we all know some songs are not godly, and that there is people who raise their hands and their hearts are not in Christ, but the majority of Christians are giving glory to God with their praises and songs. You should think twice who you are listening to.

I don't think John means you can't praise God by raising your hands. That is totally different that "rocking" to the beat of music. Beat of music will stir lusty feelings. I have seen such. I visited a church where the music was wild, teens jumping, running and the poor preacher says "I can feel the spirit". I'm thinking to myself, Bro. you can't tell the difference. That is the sad part.

And I say AMEN MarkV. And I will do so for as long as the Holy Spirit of G-d commands me to. I WILL NOT be silence by Satan or his followers Markv.

NO, I will continue to proclaim the Kingdom of G-d from wherever I breathe. For (as Christ said) "I do NOT seek the approval of men" but G-d alone.

And so you hear the Apostates and Pharisees of our time (Like yourself) forever oppossing G-d, His Prophets, His Apostles, His Christ, and all His Martyrs(i.e.Witnesses)

EVEN TO THE POINT OF SLAUGHTERING THEM IN THE NAME OF YOUR god.
(As your fathers did)
---John on 2/15/11


Pastor, theres a difference between swaying to the music and raising your hands to your Savior in praise when the Spirit fills you up.
Im sorry that havent experienced the difference.

Maybe its because youre too busy looking for sin to condemn in others, rather than praising God for what He has done for you. That will make you miserable in your Christian life. Ive been there myself.

If Jesus didnt come to condemn men, why do you?

The church I attend now is all about reaching the lost. We dont dispute doctrine at all amongst ourselves. We reach the lost.. PERIOD! No matter what it takes. Jesus ate with publicans and sinners and thats exactly what we do!

The themes vary from week to week. For instance on Christmas day the theme was "Back to the Future...".

The band played a couple of CLEAN Huey Lewis and the News songs from the movie to wake people up and the pastor tied the movie into a BRILLIANT message about PAST events that have affected our FUTURE, namely the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
---CraigA on 2/15/11


Its very unorthodox but the church is growing like crazy! And at the last Baptism service we had 45 people dedicate their life to Jesus Christ and follow him in baptism. Newcomers can FEEL the love of God amongst those members and they are drawn to it.

---John on 2/14/11

I raise my hands to hymns. My favorite hymn to sing to God is Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty.

BTW, John, unless you have problems with reading the Psalms, please remember that most of them were set to music, the contemporary music of the times.

It is the WORDS of the song that determines if the song is secular or spiritual. Not the melody.

I have actually heard hymns set to "Rock" music and loved every minute of it.
---Mark_Eaton on 2/15/11


John,
...They have lust and groove without the guilt.
My advice get the lyrics and read them with out the music or put simple piano behind them.
...they will not do this to Hymms.
- Because hymns played with just a piano are BORING and are approaching 100 years old. I love hymns. they remind me of the greatness of GOD that is why I like Guitar and Drums behind a hymn

John, mima, why do you hate excitement in church. Even hymns you sing in church were meant to inspire excitement but today most of these hymns are dead. If you want to invite non-christians to church, because the church is made for non-christians, they will not be excited about singing some strange song called Holy, Holy, Holy. But they can understand Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" for love or "Highway to Hell" to tell non-christians get off the "wide path that leads to destruction and on to the narrow path to life and Jesus".
King David ran around like an idiot in 2 Samuel 6 praising God. also, in psalms lift your hands to glorify the LORD.
---Scott on 2/15/11


Mary, CraigA.,

When one is waving and swaying to Praise they are doing it to the melody of the music, NOT FOR G-D.

WHY???

You see the same waving and swaying in a Godless Paul McCartney concert. Because it is the musical sound ONLY that causes them to sway.

HOW DO I KNOW THAT MOTIVE MARY?...

Because I have observed that the same "HOLY" people
would never sway and raise their hands to hymnal, gregorian, Classical.

ITS THE DOPE OF THE MUSIC MARY, NOT THE WORSHIPPING OF G-D!

Same with the fast drumbeat they jump up and down, supposedly doing it for G-d. NONSENSE! It's the African Tribal beat that causes that. NOTHING ELSE!


NOTE: Neither of you can argue my the MAIN points!
---John on 2/15/11


John, for been a pastor you know very little about holding your tongue. With one sentence you judge the hearts of all who sing and wave their hands, and yet when you were ask why you do not use the "o" in God you got all push out of shape and said, why were we judging you when all we did was ask. Here you made a judgment that all are fakes. There is many fake pastors John, and I have to say you are one of them. I do make that judgment on the fruits you bring to the table, which do not edify a single believer but bring division among everyone.

There is much Christian contemporary and rock music that glorifies God in my opinion. To judge others on the basis of style of music seems unchristian to me.

If the lyrics preach the word, the truth, what is wrong with it? We all prefer various styles of music.

I don't know of this band, but when I get the chance I will check them out. The main thing is to listen to their words, are they glorifying to God and Truthful? Also if you ever see their video or see a clip of them in concert, see if they are enjoying the glory of the applause or are they sending the applause to God. I listen to a lot of Toby Mac, POD, and Kutless. As far as I can tell they are legite.
