Christian Rock Satan's Music

Why am I addicted to "Christian" Rock? Recently I rid myself of about $500 worth of Christian Rock CDs because my parents advised me to and I ran across a Christian Rock exposed article. Can I still listen to the music that I "love?" Is this Satan's music. Is he playing with me?

This is the come-back of an old blog. Satan will always mess your head up. Your parents are right in their belief. To me there is no such thing as a "christian" rock band. There is rock bands that appear in churches and they are there to entertain who ever listens to that garbage. Rock music envokes sexual movement and lusty thoughts. Besides that, they will play in a bar on Saturday night and church on Sunday. It is from the devil himself. Please don't be fooled by so called "christian" rock.

Please forgive I am replying to a very old post. I couldn't tell. Seams to me the question you are asking is one of two things and I am not sure which it is. Question 1 Is Christian Rock and oxymoron?IE all bad.
The answer is absolutely not. There are so many good bands out there. Yes there are also some bad ones. I personally like 80's hair bands. White Cross is a good band however White Heart I don't believe is. White Cross lyrics are NOT mistakable. There might be some theology that I disagree with in White Cross but that does not make them evil. However White Heart is very hard for me to say the songs are talking about Christ or just a girl. To many of them can go either way. if you want some ideas search DemonDeathDealer

Thats not what i was trying to say Obewan... What I was trying to say is that these CCM artist sit there and try to act all Christ like but when it comes time to take a stand she acts like its such a big deal. " im isolated, im persecuted" the Bible says severed from the world. So

I do believe in Christian Liberty, but just because you have the right to do something doesnt mean you should.

I'm a singer, not a preacher, I'm not looking to convert anybody" says Christian rock diva Amy Grant. (Los Angeles Times, 5/4/84, pg. 2-c)

"I'm really sick of all this heavy-handed Christianity. Musicians take themselves too seriously. They should have more fun, and they should stop preaching unless that's what God has called them to. If I want to hear a sermon, I'll go to church, thank you." Rich Mullins (CCM magazine, April, 1987, p. 12)
---william on 3/17/10

Lev 20:26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.

The Bible gives us the answer right here. He doesnt tell us to be a little bit different, or partly separated to the world. No, He says be SEVERED from the world! No if, ands, or buts about it.

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

And you point is?

Salvation by works? Christian liberty?

Those truncated and extracted comments can only be taken out of context without reading the WHOLE articles.

I have met plenty of Christians who took 20 years to be freed from the bondage of smoking, and plenty more who CAN drink just ONE glass of wine with a good meal without sinning and without getting drunk.

I don't think Amy was pushing drugs as a good thing.

"Why isolate yourself? Your life isolates you enough. I'm isolated when I walk into a room and somebody says, She's a Christian and NOBODY OFFERS ME A JOINT and all the coke (cocaine) disappears. . ." (Bob Millard, Amy Grant, (New York, 1986), p. 169)

". . .youre always going to have those very very conservative people. They say you cant do this, you cant do that, . . . you cant drink, you cant smoke, . . . Its a pretty bizarre way of thinking." Michael W. Smith (The Birmingham News, Feb. 1993, p.1B)

We are Barbara, you should be too.

I listen to CCM and there are great artists. The artists you listed have great messages, but what percentage of the total CCM artists do they represent?

Our point is that you need to be a discriminating listener, to music as well as preaching. Would you listen to any "preacher" just because he said he was preaching the Word of God? Of course not, and CCM is no different. There are many groups whose message is "good" but very weak. For me, one such artist is Point of Grace. Their lyrics are milk to me. No depth of understanding, no personal application of truth.
---Mark_Eaton on 3/17/10

I love music. I have a varied collection of some secular and mostly Christian. Some Christian music is very weak, but clean. The words and the influences are important (are they Biblical or just "life"-related? Do they glorify God or glorify man?) There are a few groups/singers I'd happily recommend to others (Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Chris Tomlin to name a few) and others I'd think about recommending, only because they are more ambiguous in their lyrics. Whatever you read, hear or see should be done with a discerning heart. Seek guidance and be prepared to stop if it becomes wrong. The beat does affect us - it can affect our mood as good music is often highly emotive.
---simon7348 on 3/17/10

I used to listen to this "Christian" music and this is what I found. Listening to this music made it easier and easier to cross over and start listening to the real rock. The beats of this music are no different than rock. The Bible tells us to abstain from ALL appearance of evil, it tells us to be transfomed according to Christ not conformed to the World. I am not an older person either I am a 27 year old man. I know what it does. You talk about Satans lies and that is exactly what you are listening to. Satan wants you to listen to it because i it can keep you from growing, and two it gives you a false assurance. It gives you warm fuzzies, and a spiritual high, but that my friend will not get you anywhere.
---william on 3/17/10

You really have to define what is meant by "Christian rock." The "Christian rock" that I grew up on in the 1980's (Like Petra, Second Chapter of Acts, and Servant) all had God honoring lyrics, melody, harmony, and words that could be understood.

Today, it has evolved into stuff like "thrash metal" with heavily distorted chainsaw guitars, screams instead of singing, and lyrics that are depressive IF and when they can be heard. (Not to mention, no melody.)

I can not believe some of the stuff I see on TBN. I think that network is sold out to worldly records companies. It is a big money scam now.
---obewan on 3/17/10

As I read through these posts it is clear that most of you are totally uninformed of good Christian rock music. The music is to glorify the Lord not the band. If you want to know the truth, seek out Toby Mac (#1 in reaching people for God), Switchfoot,Kutless,Casting Crows, etc. They are musicians with a true heart for God! It amazes me how people use scripture to come up with all kinds of crazy stuff. Ever think Satan gets you to believe the lies about "Christian Rock" so you dont listen to the words of truth about, Love, Mercy, Redemption and it is Him who saves us.
Get educated people it just may bless your day!
---Barbara on 3/17/10

The beat/ type of music: Rock, jazz, blues, gospel, alternative, soca, calipso, reggae,
contry, western etc does not matter. What matters are the lyrics.

If you were to travel outside the USA, you would find that people use the beat/ type of music which they are most comfortable with.

Even within the USA people use what they are comfortable with:
Example: In Texas country gospel would be OK, in New Orleans maybe a jazzy/ bluezzy style

In the West Indies: Calipso, and reaggae, in india and japan?

Mark Eaton--Their words are weak, and are "milk" to us believers....exactly my point. (and me, I'm so old that I don't care if everybody knows it).
The 70's "Jesus movement" produced many new young believers, besides stirring up old ones. The music was consistant with the times. Even "rock" was different then from what it is today.
---Donna66 on 3/9/10


I am afraid you are showing your age referring to the "Jesus music" of the seventies.

Not that I mind, I actually have some of the music now. I missed the realness of it, the music actually confronted the culture, stirred up the complacent believers, and energized a new crop of ministers.

I agree with your statement about professional musicians but its the words that define the music. Their words are weak, and are "milk" to us believers who want the meat of the Word.
---Mark_Eaton on 3/9/10

I don't think rock (the style) is Satanic, or even a problem. HOWEVER, some of the people who write rock music (expecially the lyrics) can be damaging. I would take it as a 'handle with care'.

The "grand old Hymns of the church" were not, and most of the praise music of the seventies was not, written
by "professional" or wanna-be professional musicians. They were written for use in the composer's own church or worship group and for the purpose of glorifying the Lord.

Now we have a group of rock musicians who have become Christian and who write Christian music with the intent of using the "Christian market" to further their careers. I don't think it's of Satan. (Satan is probably more skilled) but much is written by immature Christians long on rhythm and short on doctrinal truth. Thankfully some music does "minister", but none has the depth of experience conveyed by the old hymns.
---Donna66 on 3/4/10

I had been going to a church for 1 year, but never understood the gospel or got a revelation about Jesus. Did not even know what salvation was. I thoght I was saved because I was pretty good. One day, one of my friends gave me a cd by Petra. After I listened to it, I was broken down, in total awe about Jesus being a ransom for my sins. Without assistance from anyone, but being fully led by the Holy Spirit, I gave my life to Jesus that day. The Lord did use Petra to lead me to the cross. I don't listen to all rock these days and to be honest, the closer I get to the Lord, my interest about Christian rock decreases.
---George_T on 3/4/10

I recently attended a Christian music festival. My younger brother, who is struggling with faith, went. Because he went, he met up with a friend of mine who prayed with him. He heard music that he likes without all the negative messages. He met others who dress like him, listen to the same music. I would rather him listen to bands like Skillet or Seventh Day Slumber versus Slipknot or Godsmack. Christian rock bands hit a group of people that contemporary praise and worship won't, at least not in the way we would want it to.
---Katie on 7/15/08

Does the music glorify God or glorify the person singing it? Does it come from the heart or does it come from the mind to make money.

Most of today's Christian music is about the self using the words I, me and my. Read the lyrics of many of the popular songs and you'll see for yourself. Listeners play, repeat the songs over and over again thinking it says something about themsleves. But the words don't come from the heart, but from the mind. Nothing that is of repetition is gloryfying God, the same as repeating a pray over and over again.

When something is glorifying God it comes from the heart and never repeated.

GOD created musical abilities in man for His Glory. If it does not glorify Him, it's of the world. And if it's of the world, then it's of the Devil. For the Devil is the god of this world and it's system.

Colossians has something to say in 2:21 about those who would reduce the Gospel of Christ to "touch not, taste not, handle not." Don't you think this would apply to "listen not, hear not, sing not" as well?

God can be glorified by any style of music. The song doesn't even have to be about God. It doesn't have to even be sung or played by a Christian. Ever thought about that? God gave music for us to enjoy, regardless of who we are.

Check out the book of Psalms. Here was a minister of music that introduced a whole new form of worship music into the church. He even integrated non temple instruments, wrote religious words to popular music. He got so into it dancing in his undergarment, his wife scolded him, he brought a curse that she would never bare children. Hmmm, if we bash modern music, maybe no more new members?

This is a controversal subject, and will get different answers according to who is asked. One man that I know said that his boys got saved at a Christian Rock concert. Others would say it was of the devil. I think you will have to determine that for yourself, ask what the music does for you, and others around you, how do people act at concerts, etc. What are the words involved in the songs. Does this music lead you to or away from the Lord? Do the artists live lives that are worthy? Do they walk the walk?

If it looks like the world and tastes like the world and smells like the world and sounds like the world then I would think that it is of the world.

We should not be imitating the world because the world is evil and we are to avoid the very appearance of evil. Pastor Larry

How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land? This verse is in Psalm 137 when the people of Isreal were in Babylon and didn't get that affection or true sence of worship when there, to sing the Lord's song. Isn't Babylon a picture of the world in scripture with all its attraction and pleasures. We should learn from this and come away from the worlds ways and be seperated. Rock was generated by the world. We should praise God with affection and how can we do this in a strange worlds ways.
---John_Philip on 10/8/07

Rock is just a genre. Music can't be Christian, about as much as food can't be Christian. To say that the lyrics must relate to God in some way or form, is just an opinion, and not a biblical truth. You need to respectfully try to discuss this with your parents. Also, could I have a link to the Christian Rock Exposed article you mentioned? Thanks.

I have seen many types of music come and go. The music that lives forever is music that edifies the soul, with lyrics heard and felt. in the seventies acid rock, drugs, profanity and violence were the rage. today, many christians still embrace the acid of that generation and pass the noise off as music for God. Its interesting to note, 95 percent of the music of the seventies has disappeared into history. 5 percent still lives on forever. why? it was of God not satan.
---ashley on 10/4/07

Well, as much as I like Christian Rock, I must say if any of the songs sung by these artists are depressing or about missing someone (other than Jesus), or creates a sad atmosphere, it is WRONG. God did not save us to be sad or angry or depressed. We are to worship Him and try to reach the lost. I agree, if the music does not glorify God, it is simply rock, and there is nothing Christian about it. Check out Seven Places music and compare it to Disciple. Tell me which Glories our Lord in EVERY song.
---Joe_Hardy on 10/4/07

First of all you have to understand that there are all types of music genres, and that each music has an anointment, and it influences you according to how the music was inspired. For example, a Love song about your girlfriend or boyfriend leaving you for another person will create the atmosphere of lonliness, sadness, and a broken heart. You need to be careful in the type of music you listen to, especially the type of music that originated from the world.
---John_Paul on 10/3/07

I'm a PK in my mid 40's, seen the trends, heard the debates, all the same, parents don't like the kids music etc. It's all preference, Rock n Roll came out of the church. Christian Rock used to be bands that could not make it in the secular world, but that has changed. It's just another genre of business. My opinion anything sacred can be made mundane by overuse. Expand your field alittle, there is alot of good music out there.

Music is a strong catalyst to influence the hearers, godly music can lead a soul into repentance, but ungodly music can lead a soul into sin or depression or violence. For example, that stuff called country western, the music sounds like they're all drunk and broken-hearted and crying because their girlfriend left them. And if you listen to that stuff long enough, then you likewise can start to feel saddened and miserable and depressed too, and perhaps wishing to die.

Yes some bands depict evil but do not advocate evil, that is a big difference. Example, Vincent Price directed evil characters in his films, but he was considered to be a fine, cultured gentleman.

It depends on the music, whether the musicians are really Christians or merely mislabeled as such. Sooner or later when a child of God continues to behave like a child of the devil, God will give them up to their disobedience and they become a child of the devil.

You do not even hear the name of Jesus, nor anything that even pertains to Him. I agree the lyrics are important as well as the words. If someone is using the word "it" in their words, that could mean anything or anyone. And also what about these christian rock groups that wear all black? Something to think about.

If you are personally convicted that this music isn't suitable for you, then turn from it completely, just don't go trying to impose your convictions on others. That would be legalistic. I personally don't "like" christian rock because I grew up listening to RnR and if I wanted to listen to that again I would choose the real stuff, not this trying to pretend it's christian.

If you do a study on the quantum physics of sound and learn that every sound ever heard is recorded inside of a rock, of which science has just recently discovered, you can just imagine what has been recorded inside of a human, garbage in garbage out. Phillipians 4 speaks of what you should be listening too. We need to watch the gates of our ears, eyes, mouth, these are entrance ways in which demons come in. And can then cause posession through satans music.

First I would pray and ask the Lord for your parents to be open to discussing this matter.

Second, I would ask your parents to look at the lyrics of your music and to listen to it, and explain why it is forbidden.

Third, I would obey them in the bottom line.

Just because something falls under the heading of "Rock" does not mean it is evil.

Good spiritual insight Jack, may I ask you,Joe Hardy, how old are you? We have to be careful about what we watch as well as what we listen too. Really that could apply to anything we allow in our lives. If the music is not Glorifying and Praising the Lord, then I would not listen to it. A lot of so-called christian rock does not by no means Glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You should listen to your parents.
