I think we need to be more open God made music and I think that ANYTHING CAN be used to praise God Hip Hop, Rap, Rock even Dance. As long as it is being used responsibly.

Yes, I think so. Try watching (The Distraction Dilemma) by Christian Berdahl. That answered a ton of my questions about music! :woohoo: I hope this helps!! :D
Blessed Assurance! Jesus is mine!

I am not a hater but I would just like to say that that which you just said is like bringing the world inside the church because it is the world that contains that music and the church is holy, separated from the world and if we say that that kind of music is allowed in the church then what are we saying about Gods church....something to think about....
I hope I made sense...

@Prov17

How does it bring glory to God, if I may ask...

So I am really curious what is the difference between what is "worldly" and what is " Godly"

No I don't think it is ok because that music is very worldly. It is also NOT reverent when you are sitting in the sanctuary trying to praise God. Also rock music doesn't really bring glory to God and bring you closer to Him. The words may talk about God but let's say if you want to get up and dance and "rock out" would that bring glory to God? I doubt it.

When Cain and Abel brought sacrifices to God what did Cain bring? Vegetables and fruit. What did Abel bring? A lamb. Which one did God accept? Abel's, because God required a lamb and that's what Abel brought. That met God's standard's. Even though Cain was a good gardener God didn't want vegetables. It's the same thing with your talents. If you were yelling at the top of your lungs in the sanctuary would that meet God's standards for reverence and holiness, and glorify him? Would he want that to represent him?

Great answers guys! :) I think that rock music is not good music because God doesn't like that kind of music. Besides, rock music is pretty much the devils music. But now I have a new question for you guys. :woohoo: Do you think that rock music is good outside of the church? :huh:

Okay, so for me personally, I think rock music is a pain. But that's just me. I don't what drums and electric guitars pounding into my head while I'm trying to keep my thoughts on God.

@Big Al, the word 'worldy' is the same thing as secular

Secular- denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis

Another word that could match up with this is 'carnal'

Carnal-relating to physical, especially sexual, needs and activities

This doesn't ONLY deal with sexual (ick :pinch: ) needs and activities though. We were all born with carnal minds because of what Adam did. "Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." Romans 8:7

Being godly, on the other hand.....

Godly- devoutly religious; pious

I think there is an obvious difference there.


Romans 7:25-I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.



Make sense?

I respect your opinion. Everyone has their own conviction on what's godly and what's not. But let me ask, how do you know God doesn't like rock music? We don't want to put God in a box. If someone wants to praise God with rock music, which is what they are convicted to do, is God going to disapprove?

Um, you did realize that people dance to praise God, right? In Bible times, there were dances that the people did to worship God, and some people still do them today. I've seen it, and it's pretty awesome.
I think we can dance to praise God, but you have to be careful with HOW you're dancing. Like not twerking or anything.

I wrote this response on the other post (HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and I'll post it here.

Here's why I think rock music is not OK.

It's confusing, and there are many reasons to support it. I've seen many sources, but now I don't remember them...

Well, even if it has Christian Lyrics, the music still is bad.

Rock music puts the beat as most powerful, whereas the melody is supposed to be most important.

This heavy beat makes music is so loud, rocky, and so it shuts down your frontal lobe, which is the part of the brain that makes judgments and determines right vs. wrong. So you're not really paying attention to the words.

Also, listening to rock music causes temporary hearing damage. Long term exposure will result in hearing loss. Does that sound inviting?

In addition to what I wrote...

Drums in the background are OK and don't constitute rock music. Drums are bad when the overpower the music and are really loud. Drums should be used as special effects, not be the whole point of the music.

You can say something and not mean it. Rock doesn't give a worshipful. It's more like a frenzy of hyperactivity

Isn't there a verse that says, "Whatever you do for God, do it with all your might?" Worship is for God and it can be done with rock.

i personally think that rock music is bad. i mean how can you praise God whiles there is this loud pounding in your head...i know people in the bible days would dance to praise God, but think of what would happen if dancing was allowed in church, i mean people can really over do it.
i once when to a sunday church to do something for them, me and my dad and other kids in my pathfinder club. but we had to stay for the whole service and they had these children dressed up dancing in front of the church...how can you focus on God with all that rock pounding in your head and people dancing all around you...my opinion is that people would just be listening to th music which is worldly, instead of listening to the lyrics. and i know some of the rock christian music has good lyrics because i used tolov it.. but the music is not good.
as for rock outside of church i think it is also bad.

It isn't one hundred percent that. It was the type of offering as well. Because it was a sin offering, both were required to bring lambs. However, if it were a harvest offering, or a thank offering, Cain's fruits would have been acceptable.

There is always a time for everything. Sometimes louder music is more appropriate than softer music, and vice versa. It doesn't mean that one type over the other should be denounced and called worldly.
