The music we listen to

Sticking my nose in again, but please be careful of the music you listen to. As I walk city streets, it is heartbreaking the confusion, chaos and unhappiness in which so many people are living. Always music is an obvious and integral part of their lives. Even Christians that I have observed who are living in unhappiness and discouragement seem to have the common denominator of the world’s music. I observe and counsel Christians who are struggling and some who have fallen into sin and always music is involved.

By music, I mean music with a rhythmic beat. It does not matter what the category or name it has. It begins with the subtle soft beat that stimulates the body and creates sensuality. It progresses to more addictive and dynamic styles, but always leads to sensuality, and inevitably is a direct contradiction of Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Sensual music led them to wrong thinking and eventually, illicit thoughts and actions. Honestly, I cannot tell you music is the initial cause of those who have fallen into sin or if in they did not handle some other temptation right , but I can tell you that music is part the process of decline, even some so-called “Christian music.” I love all of you and this is not pointed toward anyone, but simply what I am observing and what God put on my heart tonight. Please be careful, for the attack of Satan is great against us and it seems that music is the great tool in his arsenal. Many feel music is amoral but if you truly observe the modus operandi of Satan you have to see the common denominator of music and it makes sense, since he was created a musical being. Music that feeds the flesh and not the spirit is diametrically opposed to God. Making the words of a song “Christian” words does not take away the effect of sensual instrumentation. Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. Notice, Melody, not antithetic beat.
