Christian Rock and Satanic Music
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." —1st John 2:15Believe it or not! Here's Amy Grant, on the Michael W. Smith, In Concert (Reunion Records, 1985) video tape flashing the El Diablo “Satanic salute.” Amy flashes the "satanic salute" at least two separate times on the video, displaying it for several seconds. There is a definite spirit invoked in Rock music, secular or Christian — and it's NOT the Holy Spirit! And many times, people involved in Rock music get caught up in its unholy spirit!Christian Rock is not evil because they use modern instruments. It's evil because they lure Christian kids into worldly music through worldly associations. Every teenager wants to emulate their music idol—whether it be Amy Grant's pot smoking, Stryper's cross-dressing or Marsha Stevens' ministry, BALM, Born Again Lesbian Music. That's the main issue. It is not sinful to have a guitar in a church service. In fact, in can be quite appropriate if done tastefully. The same is true of drums and other instruments. I'm 100% against the CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) INDUSTRY, which is controlled by the New World Order as are all the other music industries. I am unalterably against the BUSINESS of Christian Rock Music, which is committed to Satan's New World Order.I condemn no one, for we are all guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners. I am simply taking a Biblical stand for God against so-called Christian Rock music and those who publicly parade wickedness.
Questions and Answers about "Christian" Rock
Jesus never taught anybody to have a singing ministry, nor does the Bible anywhere teach it. Ephesians 5:19 speaks of singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. This does not mean that recorded music is wrong; but something is VERY, and obviously WRONG, when professed Christians claim to love God, while SELLING their music, making much more money than they donate, and everything is FOR SALE. Jesus never sold anything, nor did John the Baptist, nor the early church. But today's apostates want to make money from everything they do, exploiting the name of Jesus to make a buck. Who's kidding who? You cannot serve money and God (Matthew 6:24). It's one or the other!
Furthermore, EVERY CCM group today promotes demonic Ecumenicalism — breaking down all social, religious and racial barriers in an attempt to unite everyone. TobyMac “wants to start a revolution, one that will sweep through cities and erase the divisive lines that keep people and cultures apart.” There is no such command or teaching in the Bible. TobyMac is pulling on the same rope as the Devil, trying to unite humanity once again as in the days of Babel, without God. What America needs is Biblical REVIVAL, not REVOLUTION!
The Bible can be summed up in one word—TRUTH (John 17:17). It is that very TRUTH that is woefully missing in CCM music today. Everyone is afraid to take a stand, lest they suffer reproach for the name of Christ (2nd Timothy 3:12), and their fans turn on them (John 15:19). As churches are becoming more worldly, so is the world becoming more churchy. Apostasy has set into our churches like rigor mortis.
Take a good look at the photo to the right and decide for yourself if it looks like Jesus is being praised here. Why all the multicolored lights? It looks like a nightclub!Do you think Christ is being honored when professed "Christians" strut across a stage, with flashing strobe lights, blasting guitars, worldly dress, and CHARGE people money to hear them "present the Gospel"? What a bunch of phonies!How can Avalon claim that their goal has always been "to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people through music"; BUT, then charge people to hear their music. Is the Gospel for sale?And why don't they freely share the Gospel on their website with their fans? It's all about money! It is an insult to God for anyone to claim to sing the Gospel, and charge people money to hear it. Who's kidding who?
The Devil's crowd knows "rock" is Evil...David Bowie:
"Rock has always been THE DEVIL'S MUSIC. . ." (Rolling Stone, Feb. 12, 1976)John Lennon:
"I've sold my soul to the DEVIL." (Ray Coleman, Lennon, p.256)Little Richard:
"I'm the Rock 'n Roll singer that you heard about through the years. . . I was directed and commanded by another power. The power of DARKNESS. . . The power of the DEVIL. SATAN." (Charles White, The Life and Times of Little Richard, pp. 205-206)
DC Talk's Jesus Freak Video (learn the sickening truth)" People there are, not a few, who have pipe organ abilities and make no more music for the causes of Christ than a wheezy saxophone in an idiot's hands." -Dr. R.G. Lee (from the needful sermon, PAYDAY SOMEDAY)The Satanic Salute from P.O.D.'s album.There is NOTHING even remotely Christian about Amy Grant.Stryper Fanny Crosby is the greatest hymn writer that ever lived, writing over 9,000 songs! Before Fanny got saved, at 45 years old, she wrote many secular songs. But after she got saved -things were different...Here's what Fanny said about mixing Christian and worldly music:
"Sometimes I need to reject the music proposed for my songs because the musicians misunderstand that the Fanny Crosby who once wrote for the people in the saloons has merely changed the lyrics. Oh my no. The church must never sing it's songs to the melodies of the world."
- Fanny Crosby
And do you know why Fanny Crosby said that - because Fanny got saved! And God "hath put a NEW SONG in my mouth, even PRAISE unto our God" inside the NEW Fanny Crosby! Fanny Crosby wrote over 9,000 songs to the Lord! Fanny used over 200 different pen names because she wanted to make sure God got the glory and not her.
Praise Him! praise Him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Sing, O Earth, His wonderful love proclaim!
Hail Him! Hail Him! Highest archangels in Glory;
Strength and honor give to His holy name!
Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard His children,
In His arms He carries them all day long;
Praise Him! Praise Him! Tell of His excellent greatness;
Praise Him! Praise Him! Ever in joyful song!
-- Fanny J. Crosby
There is no such thing as “Christian” rock music. Just as there is no such thing as “Christian adultery” or “Christian homosexuality.” When it is rock, it is not Christian. There is only one “Christian rock” and “THAT ROCK WAS CHRIST” (1st Corinthians 10:4).
“For their rock is not as our Rock...”
—Deuteronomy 32:31"Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream." —Amos 5:23,24
