I have been involved with preaching since 1996. From then until now I see see a change that has become more apparent in the way that we worship the Lord through music. Today we have worldly music with so called Christian lyrics. If I had to pick one, I would have to pick the Christian lyrics. I am 110% against Christian Contemporary Music. This movement started out small, but now has grown so that non-believers are now listening to it. Music that is Contemporary in style promotes the idea that you do not have to change when you get saved. However, my Bible says that we are to put off the old man. We are to change clothes, attitude, wants, etc. (spiritually speaking). When salvation takes place in the life of a person, that person should start to change their desires (including music). I am so sad to see Christians falling by the wayside because of the influence of Contemporary Christian music in their lives. I know someone right now (I will not give their name) that is far away from the Lord (smoking, cussing, dressing like the world, acting godless, etc.) and it all started with Christian Contemporary Music. It is a sad day when Christians say "I listen to CCM because I like it" instead of saying "I listen to this music because God likes it". The truth is that they cannot say this because God does not like it when Christians have one foot in the world and one foot in the church. This is the Lukewarm church that is talked about in the book of Revelation. I honestly believe that CCM makes God sick because of the points described above. I believe that CCM is sending people to Hell because it uses emotions to convict instead of using the Holy Ghost. I think that many people believe that they are saved because they made some false profession that was hyped up on emotionalism. Do not think that I am against emotions (i.e. Jesus wept. John 11:35). However, when a group uses emotionalism through getting people hyped up at a "concert" to convict: I have a problem. What about you? What do you think? What are some experiences that you have had with music being used to worship God?
