How do you feel about “Christian Rock” music? Does it belong in the Church? Is it okay to listen to in your “down time”? Do your kids listen to it?
Consider this statement made by a very popular “Christian Rock” artist:
“… the only difference [between rock and Christian rock] is the lyrics and then the difference is sometimes subtle … at the basic root, there’s no difference. … Christianity is about rebellion. JESUS CHRIST IS THE BIGGEST REBEL TO EVER WALK THE FACE OF THE EARTH … he was crucified for his rebellion. ROCK ‘N’ ROLL IS ABOUT THE SAME THING–REBELLION … TO ME ROCK AND THE CHURCH GO HAND IN HAND” (Mark Stuart of Audio Adrenaline, Pensacola News Journal, Pensacola, Florida, March 1, 1998, pp. 1,6E).
This is the sentiment echoed by many “Christian Rock” artists. Do you agree? Why or why not? Join the discussion, please. I’m interested to know your thoughts.
I’ll post my response to this statement on Saturday.
