A lot of the music today is controling to the spirit like it was meant to be but in the perversion of his gift Satan uses it like a pied piper to lure some into his dark realm..not all music is of God but i beleve that when we make a joyful noise to the throne of God He knows it by the condition of our heart during worship...ive thrown off a lot of music that im convicted of listening to...but my mind and spirit are better for it..REV

    The heart of a song is in it's lyrics

    though i'm skeptical about metal's screamo parts because the sound is like all about hatred and anger

    I think that it does not matter if you play a loud guitar or a flute, what matters is the actual lyrics of the song being sung! You can put evil words with a loud metal sounding band just as easily as you can with an orchestra or a harmonica!
    I do understand when people give up secular music and chose to only listen to Christian music. I done it before.
    I do listen to many genre of music, from loud guitars to Native American flutes! I guess bottom line...pray about it. We all are different, so if something hinders us from God, then it is something we do not need in our lives!

    BTW Rev...I think my husband has that that record you are talking about from Led Zepplin....along with everything else that came out in the 70's..LOL...and it is interesting looking at the album covers and what they mean and all.

    My hubby don't remember much about the 70's either...LOL! I understand about what you mean. The 70's had some very weird music that came out. I guess it depends on what type of music reaches you the most. I admit, that if all Christian music was like country music, I would have to just copy the words so I could enjoy it and leave out the music.

    :angel: I'm with you on that!! But I think to each his own is the best answer regarding musical tastes. We can glorify God by what's in our hearts and in the lyrics we sing and listen to IMO.

    I've been wondering myself lately. I recently felt a conviction (or what I believed was a conviction) to delete all of my trance/dance music. There were no lyrics, and the music itself was not evil. I thought to myself, "Would God listen to this type of music Himself?" But I've been struggling with this because, if that's the case, shouldn't we only listen to Christian music? Since it's not about ourselves but about the glory of God?

    Gods music is not worldy music!

    And not all music brings Glory to GOD!

    Some may appear good but pertain to man and his soul and not to GOD even when the song is supposedly about God.

    i further recommend to destroy all evil from your houses, pop music, cd's, posters, harry potter, TV etc.

    i also got rid of all my old music collection from before i got saved and born again! It was a crate full of cd's: many genre's from soft rock, heavy metal, pop, trance, dance, hardcore, techno, alternative, rap music and even classical music i destroyed it all with a big kitchen knife and cut it all up, broke and smashed the devils music especially the heavy metal and hardcore devils music and got rid of all the disc's and covers (it was a lot of work and mess) but it sure was worth it.

    i enjoyed it was actually fun!

    i recommend destroying all worldy entertainment as cd's music and games you will have joy whilst you break the evil cd's to pieces! (safety first though: use safety goggles and wear handshoes, make use of a tool for destruction lest ye cut your fingers on those sharp cd's when they are broken)

    i also destroyed and cut up old books that teach contrary to The Word of GOD (i was formerly heavily into witchcraft: occult, metaphysics and new age) i stabbed them devils books but the knifes top edge was bent because i stabbed so hard so i finished up by tearing them pages out with my hands to render them wicked satan's promotional material completely useless.

    i also got rid of my computer games and broke and tore them all to pieces! All went into the dumpster totally useless and all cd's were shattered!

    At first i though about selling it all but later i thought this music and entertainment i would not want someone else to listen to as it is all evil and a distraction.

    What only matters is GOD

    To me there is no such thing as:

    "Christian" rap music -as it is worldy always by default and there is a spirit in that music that works pride in you and some hatred and arrogance
    "Christian" heavy metal -as it is worldy always by default and there is a spirit in that music that works anger, hatred and always comes and resides with a deep spirit of rebellion

    Pray for discernment! it is needed especially today! What is normal today was abnormal in 1940 and what was normal in 1940 was abnormal in 1880 things get worse and worse as we go on and the TV, world and the entertainment industry gets filled with more and more evil and vile as pornography out in the open, hatred, anger, wars, killings, sodomy, witchcraft etc!

    And yes There is also a lot of good Godly music AMEN

    God is GOOD!

    Glory to GOD!

    Hallelujah!

    But if you would get rid of all worldy wickedness from your home: music, tv etc. (if you haven't already Praise God!) i believe that you will find yourself to be with more peace inside your home, plus after a while it get's easier to get your mind focussed on Heavenly things!

    God is Good!

    Now back to the topic:

    There is also a lot of good Godly music AMEN

    God is GOOD!

    Glory to GOD!

    Hallelujah!

    if you get rid of all worldy wickedness from your home: music, tv etc. you will find more peace inside your home, and very good for your spirit this i believe.

    God is Good!
    Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with classical music?
