<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr>[color:"blue"]Whether one "likes" the symphony is irrelevant, although the reason one dislikes it may be an indication of where one is spiritually. For if one rejects such pieces of music because they find them "boring", then this does reveal that the individual is looking and needing that "emotional fix"; that emotional "high" which "Rock-style" music produces and was designed to do.</font><hr></blockquote><p>I am just asking a question here, and if I am off topic, let me know, but is it wrong to desire to have your emotions stirred? Not all rock music that I have heard makes me angry. Some makes me feel happy. Same with reading Christian literature. Some Christian literature makes me happy. But if someone doesn't like to read Augustine or John Piper, then they aren't going to have the same emotional response to it as I would. Some hymns in our hymnals, the music is such that it makes one happy and makes one sad. Is this wrong too? I am just asking questions. Not for the purpose of debate. This post just stood out to me.<br><br>
