Me too! 😄
So today’s topic has been such a controversy over the years for this generation of “christ believers” especially the youths. I’m focusing on the “believers” because usually this is not an issue for unbelievers, their choice of music is personal basically. Its a short post but i just had to address this issue.
So overtime, I’ve realized how “christians” and even the “non-believers” who feel they have the right to speak about your faith, are quick to judge people by the kind of songs they find in your playlist. They refer to songs that are not talking about God as “worldly music.”
They refer to songs from gospel artistes as the legit ones a Christian should listen to and refer to others as “worldly music.”
I would like to state expressly and clearly that the bible tells us to listen to things that edify us. The bible also tells us to praise God at all times. But the bible dint say we should only listen to songs from tasha cobbs and frank edwards. I stand corrected.
So I wonder why someone would condemn someone else from listening to korede bello’s “Godwin” or chidiinma’s “if no be God” just because they’re not frank edwards or kenny kore. Really its not about the preacher. Its about the message.
The other day I heard a pastor criticized another church for inviting korede bello to their church to sing his song “godwin”. Really? Sigh. Our generation is full of hypocrites and bunch of people trying so hard to fit in. He actually said korede bello is not born again. I’m like “oh so we can now see people that are born again from the forehead”
Personally I listen to all kinds of songs. Love songs (which is the most important commandment. LOVE), rap, r n b etc so far it edifies and makes absolute sense (I actually google lyrics to confirm) I’m a very deep person and when I hear a particular song I listen to the words in the song, so even when people refer to a song as worldly and I can relate with the song I don’t mind. I don’t even listen to some Christian songs because they actually make no sense.
What is annoying is that some individuals would complain about others and even feel more holier than them because they have gospel songs and others don’t.
My tailor once told me this and I held on to it ever since ” that the issue of no make up, no music or no particular type of dressing is associated with the heart and your level of grace so if your heart condemns you as a believer then don’t do it” P.S THIS ONLY WORKS FOR BELIEVERS OH. DONT GO AROUND COMMITTING SIN AND LIVING LIFE ANYHOW AND CLAIM YOUR GRACE COVERS YOU OR THAT YOUR HEART DOES NOT CONDEMN YOU.
Lol, So what makes a song a worldly song? A song by beyonce or rihanna ? Or a song that doesn’t edify?
