What types of Music should Christians listening to?
make an assumption that if you are a Christian, that you know enough
fundamental doctrine to understand that Country, Rock, Rap, or other
non-Christian music is not pleasing to God.
With that in mind, we see that many of the so-called
Christian artists are relying on secular styles of music and calling
it Gospel. Does God need to copy the devilís styles for his music? I
think not. To determine what type of music Christians should listen
to, we should go to the scripture. After reading the verses below,
you should determine that the
purpose of Christian music is to Praise the Lord.
Anything short of that goal is not edifying or worthy of our
Psalms 9:2 I will be glad and
rejoice in thee: I will sing
praise to thy name, O thou most High.
Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will
we sing and praise thy power.
Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my
supplications. 28:7 The
LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am
helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and
with my song will I praise
Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for
the upright. 33:2
Praise the LORD with harp:
sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
33:3 Sing unto
him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
Acts 16:24 Who, having received
such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their
feet fast in the stocks. 16:25
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and
sang praises unto God:
and the prisoners heard them.
much of what goes by the title of Christian Music today is NOT
Christian. It does not testify, praise or sing about the Lord Jesus
Christ or God the father. In fact, a great deal of it does not even
mention the Lord Jesus Christ. Much of today's Christian Music goes
out its way to avoid the name of Jesus Christ Ė or any Christian
Luther (Christian reformer of the early 1500ís) put his views of the
state of salvation bluntly:
"whoever does not want to sing and speak of it shows that he
does not believe it".
to the Lord Jesus Christ, Satanís goal is to uplift man and not God
But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me,
Satan: thou art an offense unto me: for thou savorest not the things
that be of God, but those that be of men.
Christian's music is sung to the Lord. It is not for the world.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently
for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry
clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
40:3 And he hath put a
new song in my mouth,
even praise unto our God:
many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
I will sing a new
song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings
will I sing praises unto thee.
you even understand the lyrics of some of the contemporary styles of
music and do the Country-Gospel lyrics even meet the Bibleís
criteria of praising he Lord?
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray
with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will
sing with the understanding
To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.
Make a joyful noise unto
God, all ye lands: 66:2
Sing forth the honor of his name:
make his praise glorious.
Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the
midst of the church will I
sing praise unto thee.
Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his
praise in the congregation of saints.
Israel rejoice in
him that made him: let the children of Zion
be joyful in their King. 149:3
Let them praise his name in the dance: let them
sing praises unto him
with the timbrel and harp.
does Lucifer or Satan know about music?
Ezekiel 28:13 we get a hint that Lucifer was once very involved with
the music of heaven. He knows how to use the wrong music against
Eze 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden
the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the
sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the
jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold:
the workmanship of thy
tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day
that thou wast created. Eze
art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou
wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in
the midst of the stones of fire. Eze
28:15 Thou wast
perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in
