| Stop watching the mega -bucks shows if you really want to find the way... those things all go to promoting that which you seem to dispise!|
Think for yourselves and stop letting the 1% of this country that holds the monies tell you what is right and good... look into your soul/spirit and follow it and not commercial TV programs.
Music existed well before christianity and has helped raise the spirit of man since the begining. Music began as a form of worship, no matter your faith!
I don't watch 'mega buck shows' in order to find the way. I watch them so I can see what a significant part of our society is interested in. The fact that I already think for myself lets me observe without being sucked in.
If we don't know what is going on in society, in music or art or the written word, we are not going to know how to relate to it. So many times a discussion of a band or a song with someone who does not see things from a Christian perspective has been the perfect opportunity to share with them, to warn them not to believe the illusion that thinner/sexier is better.
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."SGGardner Art
