I love music. I love all kinds of music; Hip-Hop, R & B; Alternative; Soft Rock; Latin, etc. I am not really a fan of much of today’s music; most artist produce very catchy and addicting lyrical nonsense; which in my opinion is how the devil communicates with our young people and alter the way they live their life.
Most young musical artist don’t want to take responsibility for that, but whether they choose to acknowledge it or not, they are doing so much more than just using the gifts God blessed them with to produce fun music you can groove to, but they are also a huge influence in our kid’s lives. Most of them selfishly choose to do, sing and perform what and how they want; ignoring the fact that their music encourages sexual immorality, negative thinking; addictive behavior and ruins lives. Yes, parents share the blame for allowing their small children to even listen to or watch the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, the new Miley Cyrus and others who glamorize these things.
I loved secular music once. In fact, I remember thinking I’d have to give up the music I loved for HIM made me take a little longer to put both feet into my Christian walk. Now I am a woman after God’s own heart but I still love music. However, I hate the crap they call music these days; we are downloading ignorance that doesn’t teach or encourage in to our minds. I personally believe it is possible to produce a quality product that both teaches and is fun. It seems most (of today’s talented artist) just want to be famous, not taking into consideration the weight of the content of their music and how they carry themselves in the public eye.
Anyway, I stopped listening to music (not completely but mostly) for a while, because I haven’t found music to love again, until now. I finally decided to stop complaining and do something about it. So I downloaded legally some good Christian music I can do housework, exercise; bounce and meditate to. I downloaded some Kirk Franklin, Barlow Girls; Ron Kenoly; Michael W. Smith; Mary Mary; Nicole C.Mullen; Bebe and Cece Winans; Steven Curtis Chapman (my favorite); and more.
I have fallen in love with music again and now my step has more pep. After all music is a universal language.
