Introduction

The Draw of Secular Music I think every Christian should still listen to secular music, even if the messages aren't biblical or even moral. Whoa! Shocking statement! Let me explain. Each person, Christian and non-Christian has a heart-cry that needs to be expressed through some form of worship, music or otherwise. One of the most dangerous things in this world is a heart that can't or doesn't know how to express itself. Could this possibly be why children today are screaming for attention?

Granted, it's not the best representation of the human state of affairs, but taken as a whole, a time-period's music reflects the state of the people in that time period. Secular musicians have something most worship leaders don't: freedom of expression.

Conclusion

There's love. You could say that love is an emotion, but in my eyes, it's way more. John said that God is Love. So love is spiritual, not just emotional.

"Music is the universal language." The more varied your tastes in music, the more people you can relate to, understand, and win to Christ. If you can learn to appreciate someone else's music, you can learn to love them, and thus have the greatest weapon in the fight to reclaim this world for Jesus. ...read more.
