This will be my last post on this particular matter at this particular time. Enough has been said and shown that there is nothing which can be deemed "amoral". Thus everything that is must fall into one of two categories; that which is good and is glorifying to God or that which is evil and is opposed to God. This is aside from how something is used by man, for man can take that which is good and use it for evil purposes. But it is impossible that a good man may take something which is inherently evil and either make it good or use it to glorify God.<br><br>Now, Steve, there is a plethora of articles online which have and do show the inherent evil of certain types of music. You obviously haven't read many or any of them. Or, perhaps you have read a couple but simply refuse to accept all the proof offered from the Bible, medical research, clinical tests, history, personal testimony and experience, etc.?!!?! If one should demand that it be shown from the Scriptures that "metalcore" is forbidden, then there isn't much that a Christian can't do, as the Scriptures as intended by God wasn't written as a compilation of case law (despite what the Theonomists would have us believe) but it does contain PRINCIPLES by which we are then able to judge things in such matters. As well, there are the OBJECTIVE standards which these forms of music can be judged on their on merits or demerits within the music realm. And lastly, if these things are incomprehensible to you and such who are in bondage to this "music", I have to ask again, probably the most basic question which one who professes Christ must answer: What is there about any of these contemporary styles of music are GLORIFYING to God? What of God's nature is expressed it it? What attribute(s) are to be clearly seen in them? Would the Lord of Glory, should He walk among us once again in our day be part in this type of music's composition, performance and/or participation? Honestly.... I cannot even fathom someone suggesting that Jesus Christ would be found "letting loose" at some alleged "christian punk concert", tossing some girl about in a mosh pit, etc... !! It's blasphemous to even ponder in one's mind.<br><br>May God open all your eyes to see the total incompatibility between these aberrant forms of pagan expression and one professing to belong to the thrice Holy God.<br><br>In His Grace,
