 Re: How to discern spiritual music

how does one decide if certain music is honoring to God, beyond the lyrics.



Simple...use the 80/80 rule.

It's tempo shall not accelerate beyond 80 beats per minute, not shall it's decibles measure louder then 80 db.

(Okay, I just made that up...)

 Re:

I consider Christian music anything I can listen to and not retract any glory from God. I mainly enjoy listening to Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Bach.

This begs an interesting question... how does one decide if certain music is honoring to God, beyond the lyrics. Are certain styles honoring, while others are not? How does one discern this?

Did you get an answer to this yet? :-(

I wonder what Christians might have to say about Tony Stewart music he put on a great concert at the track yesterday, he is a great listen, and has just the right mix of balids and up-tempo songs.
:-P

 Re:

In my ever so humble opinion, music that honours God is music that does not continually use "I" every line, and uses a lot of "You's". The lyrics have to focus on God's Glory, not the talent of the performer.. Hope that helps..
Greg

ps I sure hope you guys are not really having a hard time understanding the concept of "music that honours God". ;-)

pps I am sure that we would have some dissagrements as to what that music is..And that is all that I have to say about that..Greg

 Re:

In the dictionary under "hypocrite" there is a picture of Tony Stewart. I didnt mind him messing with Jeff Gordon, but after that he really got out of control.

Ooops... a little off the topic.
