//Does Gospel music inspire you to live a better Christian and Godly life?//

A priest, a rabbi, and a preacher delivers a message, which one inspires you to live a better christian life?

Some gospel singers sing for the money. Some sing for the glory of God. It is really wonderful to hear gospel singers who live what they sing and make a living doing so. It is very inspiring and joyful.

i am a musician...YES!!! :D

Yes, there are some anointed gospel songs and singers and musicians that are powerful to change lives. I always esteemed greatly: Keith Green, Mac Powell of Third Day Offerings, and Avalon's song "You Were There" is very inspirational and powerful.

I agree with you there Robyn
i can see three levels of gospel music
Praise
teaching
and
proclamation
any good gospel song needs one of the above for my idea. the style that is cultural and according to times, doesnt matter too much, as long as it isn't abusive. again that is my idea

Gospel music was designed to inspire christians to love God more fully,humbly and reverently. To help us keep our focus where it needs to be...ie, on Jesus. It speaks of the love,power and joy of having Jesus in our lives. But I have to admit, much of what we hear now, passing as gospel music, is pure trash. Anbomination unto God. It sounds very,very wordly and does not pay homage to God as it should. It caters more to the devil and his pinions. We(christians) do have the power and choice to turn off our tvs/ radios or wherever we encounter such blasphemy.Christian rock and pop is the worse. I think. Contemporary is borderline. And so is christian rap.

\\God anointed the songs\\

Did He?

What proof do you have? Making you have "feelings," even devout ones, is no proof, as I have said elsewhere.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Yes! Some music stirs my soul and moves my spirit.

KarenD SOME DO, but the better ones for this purpose are the "old traditional hyms" not many modern gospel singers are aware of their responsabilty.
how old do you estimate me

You can tell the age of most of the posters on this question by their answers. LOL

Yes. Gospel music have inspired me for many times. It has encouraged me in my daily walks with God because Gospel songs are written out of the writer's experiences and God anointed the songs and let the words touched their hearts because God's words are powerful than double-edged sword. It can make the strong ones broke down to tears. Even the strongest man.

\\About the last outstanding Christian music that I enjoyed from the 20th century were Leonard Bernstein's Mass, Godspell, Jesus Christ Super Star and Purpose,\\

Leonard Bernstein's theatre piece MASS is not Christian music at all, but rather a drama that realizes the ancient slander of Jewish ritual desecration of Communion elements.

GODSPELL and JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR are moving theatrical pieces, but are again not what I would call Christian music, though as drama I enjoy them.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/24/11


No, because the musical idiom is the level of a first year piano student, and the texts are usually just as puerile.

I prefer Baroque and Romantic composers myself. Brahm's GERMAN REQUIEM is one of the most thrilling and inspiring pieces I know.

But each to his own taste.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

About the last outstanding Christian music that I enjoyed from the 20th century were Leonard Bernstein's Mass, Godspell, Jesus Christ Super Star and Purpose, I enjoy performing high quality choir music. I have found little Christian music written in the 21st century that is remotely interesting. I like good Hymns and oratorio class Christian music of Brahms, Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Handle.

SOME DO, but the better ones for this purpose are the "old traditional hyms" not many modern gospel singers are aware of their responsabilty.
CARMAN, DON MOEN and "Keith Green" are the only ones from the modern stock i know who are aware and working on it. there must be more singers, so please inform us.

Reba, there is a lot of good Christian music out there. It can inspire you, and lift you when you find yourself is some tribulation in life. To the unbeliever the music is boring and has no value. Music does not save anyone it incourages and lifts us many times. I'm speaking of good gospel music. Some songs will inspire you to learn more about God, some remind you not to hurt the One who saved you. God has gifted many to inspire us. Some even have quotes from Scripture that we can hold on to that will help us later to witness more for the glory of Christ our Lord.

Reba, I hear a lot of music which people claim to be GOSPEL MUSIC!

But as I listen to most of it, I don't hear anything about the GOSPEL, and I hear nothing but noise.
