I personally only listen to Christian music. (I used to listen to Lee Ann Rimes, but not since she has "adopted" a bad character). Please note I have nothing against classical music. It is much of today's pop/rap music I have concerns about. We need to look at the songs lyrics and be discerning, even with "Christian" music

Well, here are some reasons I just listen to Christian music:

1. As I'm sure you know, music has a large impact on your mind. We often get catchy melodies in our heads, and they often come with the words. Now, would you rather have Rich Mullins' "Awesome God" stuck in your head or Shania Twain's "Man I Feel Like a Woman"? Which edifies the soul? More importantly, which glorifies God?

2. I am amazed at how many songs out there glorify the body and its desires. I am also amazed at how many songs include cuss words and taking of the Lord's Name in vain. Why is it that a restaurant can air a song that talks about sleeping with your boyfriend and yet if you air a Christian song you are considered "unprofessional" or "biased"?

3. It can spark conversations with others. If someone comes over and looks at my music or hears my radio, they see/hear Wes King, Indelible Grace, Newsong, FFH, and others. Believe me, I've seen it happen. No one has come to Christ because of it (yet), but I've had opportunities to share with them wjy I listen to what I listen to.

Philippians 4:8- "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things."

True godliness is a sincere feeling which loves God as Father as much as it fears and reverences Him as Lord, embraces His righteousness, and dreads offending Him worse than death~ Calvin
