Music has the power to influence you. Have you ever seen robberies being committed to jazz or classical music? No. Hear me out. I am not saying rap or hip hop is bad. I am a Gospel DJ. The lyrics, beats and spirit behind a song make up a song.
Do you catch yourself singing along to songs even when nothing is playing? You may use words that you would not normally use. A lot of secular artists sell their soul to the devil to become famous. So when you support secular music ask yourself who are you glorifying Jesus or the devil? and just throwing Jesus in a song does not make you saved. R Kelly saying one minute ‘you saved me’ and then next track ‘feeling on your booty’. Another litmus test is can you sing the unedited version of a secular song in a room full of 6 year olds without feeling uncomfortable?
Some churches are no better. They will support and encourage secular artists but not provide a platform for gospel artists, performers and DJs. There is power of life and death in the tongue. There is no grey area. You are either for Christ or against Him. Wise up. Remember the lyrics, beats and spirit behind a song make it what it is. Gospel music is food for the soul so eat your fill and stop snacking. Blessings
