Does any body here like Zoegirl,Toby Mac,Dc Talk,Jump 5 ? These are just some of my favorites.If you notice these are all christian artists. Music has a big effect on everyone. Music with bad language and many other things are things that mess with you. How you think,what you say,and even some of the choices we make. Some parents just let their kids listen to whatever they want. I mean like,when they ask for a cd they just buy it don't even look at the lyrics. Some of my friends parents are like that. Some were listening to Usher ( he is a very bad rapper) I tried to tell them it was wrong but they would not listen. I prayed, and two days later one of the teacher asked for lyrics. Since we knew who to get them from we said ok. Than my teacher told the whole class how bad some music is. Some said "wow I didn't know what the music meant", and some said They are just trying to interfere. I felt very sorry for those people. All I am saying is parents need to be careful to what they are letting their kids listen to. And even though you think the beat is cool the words are what really matter. Think of it this way,W.W.J.L.T . What would Jesus listen to?

Very wise Heavensound. You made some very good points and it is even better that it came from a young person. Kids have a hard time hearing that from their parents so it is better coming from you.
God Bless. Big Sister...

Contemporary Christian Music’s latest "rock-gods" are the metal-rap-rockers called P.O.D. Sporting heavily tattooed and pierced bodies, P.O.D. has completely destroyed any remaining fragments of Biblical walls of Christian separation, gospel and convictions. P.O.D has subtilty introduced and indoctrinated Christian young people to a false, anti-Jesus, religion Before I get started, let me emphasize just how popular P.O.D. is. Their album Fundamental Elements of Southtown (released Aug. 24, 1999) went platinum in two years. Their recent album Satellite (released Sept. 11, 2001) in just four weeks went platinum. In case you don't know — to receive platinum status — a record must sell a million copies. So we're dealing with a very popular band. And the great majority of their fans are ChristIn this article, we’ll clearly document, P.O.D., (like much of CCM. which we have documented many times):grin:isobey the clear teachings of the Bible.
Pervert the Lord Jesus Christ.
Use filthy profanity in their speech.
Proudly admit to drinking alcoholic beverages.
Fellowship and promote openly wicked, vulgar and satanic music.
Corrupt the pure teachings of Jesus Christ with the false religion of Rastafarianism.
Attack Bible Believing Christians and Christianity.Because of the seriousness and spiritual danger of P.O.D., this is a lengthy and detailed article. I would encourage you, very strongly, especially young people, parents or pastors of young people, who are listening to P.O.D. and today’s Christian Rock, to take the time and read it thoroughly and prayerfully We’ve tried to be honest, but plain and straight forward (2 Cor. 3.12, Matt. 5:37). We’ve documented our material It breaks my heart to see so many Christian young people so deceived and following these groups and their music. And P.O.D. are not alone – there are many such groups polluting so-called Christian music.For some Christians this material will not be easy to digest. In fact, it will be very hard to read, and even harder to take action. For some it will make you angry – angry at me for telling you the truth. But as the Apostle Paul said to the Galatians:

"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?"
Galatians 4:16
One of the primary purposes of music is to "teach and admonish one another":

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Colossians 3:16
I am frightened when I look out on the horizon of today’s Christianity and see openly rebellious and disobedient groups such as P.O.D., "teaching and admonishing" our young people. There are very few voices speaking out against the corruption in today’s Christian music – most are promoting and praising it.

If the Lord Jesus Christ, does not come back very soon – with the perversion, corruption, tolerance, and lack of spiritual discernment being taught in today’s Christian music, how in the world will the Christian young people of tomorrow, be able to "quench all the fiery darts of the wicked." (Ephesians 6:16)

If you are a Christian that loves the Lord Jesus Christ and your desire is to live for Him – before you begin reading this article – please pray and ask the Lord if He would help you discern the truth. He promised He would:

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8NOTE: This article was originally written as one large article, but because of the length, we divided the article into four main sections. You are strongly encouraged to read it all, each section will build upon the other. Also, because the four sections are divided, in order to provide adequate documentation, some parts my be repeated in sections.
IMPORTANT: There are parts of the section "P.O.D. AND THE WORKS OF DARKNESS" that are not recommended for some Christians. We have cleaned it up for Christian viewing, as much as possible, but because of the subject matter there are parts that some may find offensive. Thank God, so do I. But the truth needs to be told. If you are a Christian young person that listens to P.O.D you need to read it. If you are a pastor, youth worker, parent, etc. with young people involved in this type music, you definitely need to read the complete text.

If you are a Christian young person that does not listen to P.O.D. or such music stay away from the section "P.O.D. AND THE WORKS OF DARKNESS".

here is somemore

at some point in life it seems that everyone will hear the familiar phrase “Rock and roll is the devil's music" or some variation of this infamous statement. Some of you may have laughed when you first heard this type of claim or perhaps still laugh when you hear it. I must admit I found it humorous when I first heard it as a teenager just getting into the music of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and the likes of these groups. Once into these groups, I had to be honest with myself and as a result I found myself seriously pondering the possibly.



Well if you're at the point of pondering the possibility or simply wanting to understand our position on the issue please continue reading.

I must begin by pointing out that we at Fight the Good Fight Ministries do not claim that all secular music is of Satan or in other words demonically inspired. What we are saying is that music can be demonically inspired - in fact we go on further to point out those artists that are clearly inspired demonically. However, we ask that you not just take our word for it, rather the “artists” own words, as in most cases they themselves admit to supernatural influences and then, of course, you have those that out right admit to satanic influence.

In order to understand our position one must realize that we use the bible as our ultimate source of truth. So if you are reading this and profess to be a Christian then we should, thus far, be in agreement as to what should be used to base truth on.

About Satan, the scriptures say,

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

It’s no secret that Satan is out to deceive and destroy as many people as he can. But the question is, why would Satan use music? Well the following scriptures, pretty well sum up the answer.

Isaiah14:11-12
11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.
12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!

Ezekiel 28:13-16
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.
16 By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones

The above scriptures clearly reveal to us some facts about Satan:

- Satan is a fallen angel (Isaiah 14:12, Ezekiel 28:14, 16)

- Satan clearly has natural musical abilities (Isaiah 14:11, Ezekiel 28:13)

No doubt this clarifies the understanding as to why Satan would utilize music as an avenue in deceiving humans. Music is a natural ability of Satan. He’s a musical being and he has extensive experience having used it to worship God before his fall. It’s no wonder we find musician after musician influenced supernaturally when it comes to music. Our prayer is that people would realize the powerful influence Satan has over much of today’s music, as the scriptures above reveal
