    I pulled out a couple old CDs that I had not listened to in a while, and decided that they are two of my all time favorites

    Jesus Freak by DC Talk. Great production, music and lyrics. There are only one or two songs on the CD that I dont enjoy, and I think they deal with some real issues.

    God by Rebecca St James. Once again great production, music and lyrics. She also looks at real problems and issues in her lyrics, and I think reaches young people (and not so young like me) with her music.

    Of course I grew up in the late 60s and 70s and my favorite singers were people like Stevie Ray Vaughn, 3 Dog night (thier early stuff), ZZ Top, Led Zepplin etc. I was also a big Mo Town fan. Not eveyone will have my biasis, but who are some of your all time favorite CDs and why

    Dr Bob,

    I would definitly say that Rock music HAS affected the minds of a generation or two or three generations by now.

    The fact that Christian rock music speaks to the hearts of those that grew up on rock music simply means that music is reaching people for Christ as it always has.

    The fact that I have Chrisitian music that speaks to me, as hymns, or the Gaithers speak - for the most part - to an older generation is fantastic.

    Our church has a mixture of Hymns and choruses. I respect the needs of our seniors to hear Hymns - they are their Heart music. The seniors in our church also respect the need of our younger folks to hear music that speaks to their hearts

    I am starting a new thread on this question of how christian rock "reaches" the generations weaned on rock (so as not to steal this thread).

    Assume you will stop by and give insights. [​IMG]

    I used to listen to allot of that trash you all mentioned above when I was out of fellowship with the Lord. Now that my fellowship is restored, I listen to nothing but hymnal type music, something that I can understand, something that puts my mind on the Lord and what he has done for me and what I should be doing for him. It is sad [​IMG] to see Christians that (in my opinion) listen to Godly music on Sunday and listen to worldy music any other day. But, since most Christians are not sitting under conviction preaching, I can understand just a tad.

    You're right: it is your opinion.
    As for "sitting under conviction preaching," perhaps you should not make assumptions about people with whom you are not acquainted....

    Sheesh, Mike's unsaved, and Mike is in the devil's grasp. I'm taking bets on who will be the first to call Mike the antichrist.

    </font>[/QUOTE]So with that said, what do you listen to most? Also, if I took your collection of music and weighed them by God honoring music vs seculiar music, which would weigh the most?

    I'll just bet you worked on that all day.....

    My taste in music is best described as eclectic. As my taste in art is skewed towards all things Baroque, my absolute favorite music is classical, and my favorite composer is Bach. William F. Buckley Jr. said it with such eloquence that I will quote him: Three hundred years ago on March 21 Johann Sebastian Bach was born. The event is as though God had decided to clear His throat to remind the world of His existence. [March 23, 1985]

    Because secular would include my VAST collection of classical CD's as well, it would indeed "weigh the most." What does that prove?

    I noticed that you seemingly have a fixation upon outward appearances. You have dropped the "avoid-the-appearance-of-evil" card in more than one discussion, and now you would endeavor to weigh my CD collection, segregating them by genre. To what would you attribute this? Why are you so consumed with the external?

    It has always been a matter of curiosity to me --
    why classical music is considered "evil." Certainly,
    some -- most -- of the composers were not
    believers; regardless, they had God-given talents,
    and they used them. Does their state of grace
    make their music any more evil than does a non-
    believer singing or playing music written by a
    believer? This just does not make sense.

    ALso, that "avoid the appearance of evil"
    scripture is not even about that. Read it in Greek
    and see what was intended by the writer, not by
    the mistaken reader.

    You know, I will tell you what is certainly evil in
    music:

    1. Those without talent and/or the tone-deaf
    claiming to be musicians
    2. Cacaphony being called "music"
    3. Words which lead one astray
    4. "Christian" music that teaches lies and that
    is uninformed
    5. Adultry, fornication, rape, murder and suicide
    being praised
    6. The evil imaginations of people toward certain
    types of music, instruments, and beats, calling
    them all, globally, evil.

    Ridiculous.
