If you were challenged to go on a rock fast (rock meaning soft rock, jazz, metal, swing, basically any type of music either sensual in nature and/or with a back beat [accent hitting on 2nd and 4th beats of measure rather than 1st and 3rd beats])--would you do it? I have, in the past, like most other folks enjoyed all types of music--they are definately both powerful and alluring. However, are all types of music Godly and do they draw us nearer to God or draw us away? I went on a music fast for 30 days (gave up my rock [both CCM and secular]) and I found that listening to those types of music again was distracting at best, unsettling at worst. If types/styles of music don't matter and are not a big deal, would you be able to go without your rock? Would you listen to classical (waltz, marches, etc. and ethnic folk music (ie-Irish folk songs, etc.) and similar non-sensual music instead? (Non-sensual music would be the type that you respond to naturally by tapping your feet or clapping your hands on 1st & 3rd beats rather than wiggling your shoulders, hips, head or clapping to off beats of 2 & 4 in a measure). How important is your music to you?
