I've been fighting with this for quite some time now personally...and the book I've been reading has kind of made me think a bit harder about my "convictions" on the subject of music. You see, for a while, I would only listen to Christian music, regardless whether I was alone, with people or whatever. But, I realize that God doesn't say I have to listen to K-LOVE all the time, right?
Now, I realize that I should avoid the music with lyrics that are questionable, but why can't I enjoy a good song by Coldplay, John Mayer, Gavin DeGraw or someone else? Have you ever faced this battle? I actually caught myself judging someone a while back, because in their "Christian" blog they spoke about a secular song! How dare someone do that, right?
Anyhow, the book that has been occupying my time right now is The Fine Line by Kary Oberbrunner. It talks about us as Christians being called to be in the world but not of the world. Do we too often seclude ourselves so much from the world that we cannot relate to those around us?
I was looking around tangle yesterday when I came across this parody of the Mac/PC commercials talking about the very subject and thought I would share with you.
What are your thoughts on the issue? Do you feel like we are separating ourselves too much as Christians to be able to reach and identify with others? Leave me your thoughts...
And, please let me know if there is a special prayer request I can word on your behalf today!!!
