Music is universal. Every culture, every nation, every person has their music. Having grown up in the 1950's and early 60's I'm prone to rock and roll music. My parents loved the big band era. Later, came the disco beat, then came the rock music which rolled over to the hard rock scene. Some like the country western beat. Others, classical music. Some people like Southern Gospel Music. One form of music I really detest is Rap. This absolutely drives me nuts. However. Now, let me say that I do hold dear the old Christian Music and fully support any Church that maintains this practice. This doesn't work for many of our youth, does it? I visited a church once where the speakers were bigger than refrigerators. For 45 minutes those folks rocked and rolled all over the place but it was in good taste and each song delivered a Gospel Message about Christ. I only visited this church once but did I object to their style merely because it was different that what I was used to? Elvis, Johnny Cash, just to name a couple of singers put Christian lyrics to many of their songs. Was this wrong? Were they sending a Christian message to those in our society that actually like that kind of rhythm? Is that wrong? What if Christian youth of today begin to add Christian lyrics to rock music, or Rap music. Would this be wrong? Would we frown upon such and discourage them from attending our Churches? They claim to be Born Again. Are we sometimes stuck in the mud? Wondering what we can do to bring the youth back into church? I don't have the answer but perhaps we need to look at ourselves first before we point the finger at others. We are today, the product of how we were raised. Our youth are products of how they were raised.
