    I recently learned about www.audienceone.org. It is a movement in the music industry to make God centered music a ministry instead of an money making industry. It has a mission statement and all to explain why some musicians feel it is best to put music back under the umbrella of the local church and keep the music godly with the purpose of glorifying God,not selling cds.


    I respect this attempt and thought some of you might be interested.

    ....there is a difference bettween *christian* music and God honoring music. I think most will agree.

    Hey Molly.

    I did not have time to browse the website, but I did find it a bit amusing that the subtitle of the site is "it is not about us" but the first link given is entitled "about us". I just found a bit of humor in that somewhere.

    Excellent site. This is the ministry page of Steve Camp. Steve wrote a "Christian Music Manifesto" some years ago questioning the direction of CCM. Lots of good stuff and links to good worship music here. Thanks Molly!

    After looking through the site, I felt like Mr. Camp might think he has the corner of the market on what God considers glorifying.

    He is the only artist described and mentioned in depth on the site.

    While his thesis and ideas seem to have a great deal of thought and depth behind them, they also seem to lend weight to his thought that he is a lone ranger seeking to "return Christian music to where it once was."

    I've heard Mr. Camp speak a time or two, and he did nothing but offend his audience. Once several years ago, he spoke to a group of hundreds of jr. high and high school students at a Hot Hearts conference about the importance of glorifying God in Christian music. He then proceeded to tell them they should get rid of all their Christian CDs and seek more appropriate music... while announcing his "God-glorifying" CDs were on sale in the foyers. Many students were not only turned-off but viciously seething by his assessment that they were a sinful generation for listening to DCTalk, Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith.

    I'm praying for Mr. Camp, as I have been since that day. This is the first time I've ever seen his thoughts scripted out, and throughly enjoyed reading his basis for thought. While, as I said before, I believe his inital idea was good, he has perverted it into an idea that he is the few, the proud, the Christian artist. I have a hard time with that. Just my humble opinion. [​IMG]

    I always wondered what direction his music would take after making his 107 theses, amd if he would renounce all his old stuff. Were those his old CD's he was advocating, or has he made any more CD's after that?

    I understand your thoughts on this and respect your opinion......

    BUT...He is defintely going against the grain to make a stand on this and I believe(I have heard him speak and sing,too) that his heart is really desiring to make music more biblical...if he was in it for big money only,he would be doing what is popular...Just my thoughts. I also realize that he does make a living by being a musician...I have no problem with that.

    I did not hear him speak about what you spoke of and I do not know what was said,but I do know that he would not be mean just to be mean...and sometimes things need to be said because maybe there are some music types that are better for young people than DC Talk and such....I happen to agree with him on that.

    I appreciate your input,though.

    Molly
