In the last few years, more and more Christian artists have been upholding the virtue of honesty in their craft. While this in itself can hardly be labelled as a fault, I fear we may have lost the reason for embracing the virtue in the first place.
In part one of my look at Christian rock, I examined four common arguments opposed to it and found there to be a lack of any serious prohibition. In this article, I’ll take a look at a position that seems to turn the above findings on its head. If the Bible is silent on music does that mean it prohibits it?
Is Christian rock Biblical? The objections have been around since Christians started playing rock music, but how do they hold up? In this article, I’ll look at some of the most common objections to CCM.
It’s a question a lot of us have attempted to answer, but are we looking at it the right way?
Here they are, my favourite albums of 2015!
Monday will be the one year anniversary of my blog, and to celebrate, I’ve got a brand new site in the making!
If there was one band that defined my childhood, it was the Newsboys.
Music is one of the most powerful tools of memory one can treasure. It can bring you back to a favored time in your life with one note of the verse or chorus. So I thought I’d share some of the songs and albums that, not only have had a huge impact on my life, but also hold precious memories. So here’s my first list (it’s probably going to be the most random you’ll ever read).
There are very few albums that stay with you forever. Love and War and The Sea In Between by Josh Garrels is one of those albums. Let me tell you why.
Have you ever thought that you were above another’s service?
Christian rock band, Red, released their new album last month titled of Beauty and Rage. After a disappointing album that was Release the Panic, have they returned with an album that blows everything else away?
Some genres were just never meant to work together, but sometimes someone breaks the rules. And they make something new and amazing altogether.
Friday the 20th of February was one of the the best, most worrying nights of my life.
Jeremy Camp’s I Will Follow was easily one of my most anticipated and hopeful releases of the year, mainly because I was ready for an amazing album after Reckless, which was, well, a letdown. As I pulled up the stream on my computer, I was ready for the best Camp album since Speaking Louder Than Before. So is it better than Reckless?
Does anyone remember Steve Taylor? Does anyone remember his last album, Squint, released back in 1993? No? If so, don’t worry, because he’s back! After twenty-one years (longer than my whole life), Steve is back, and he’s brought a new band along with him. Steve Taylor and the Perfect Foil released their debut album, Goliath in November last year, and if anyone recalls my 2014 album list, will remember this got pretty high.
