If you sow to the flesh, you'll reap from your flesh.

If you use that time to sow to the spirit, you'll reap from The Spirit.

In these days - we need as much wisdom from Him as we can get.

Behold the days are evil. There isn't much more time to be built up for the evil to come.

Be wise as a serpent, but as harmless as a dove.

Redeem the time. "Occupy until I come", He said.

If you click on the link at the top of the Home Page that says, "By Search," and type in "Rock N Roll," you will find at least seven pages worth of links where this has been discussed here in the past.

Here is an article I recently posted on this subject:

To me, it is a sin. Why? Because they sing about drugs and all types of sin. But, all of the Christians I know listens to it. I do not know any bible verses against it. It just doesn't seem to fit to me. How can you love Jesus with all your heart and soul and still listen to such? Christians watch such filth on their television sets, are they still saved? Does the sin bother them? I see it every where, in most all of the Christians I know. How can they be born again and still listen and watch such things? Are they really Christians or being deceived?

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
(Philippians 4:8)

The Bible says that as a man thinks in his heart so is he. Quite clear to me. What do you think?

1 John 2:15 Be not loving the world, neither that which is in the world. If ever anyone is loving the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1 John 4:5,6 They are of the world; because of this they speak of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God; the one knowing God hears us. Whoever is not of God does not hear us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

1 Cor 10:7,11 And you must not be worshippers of idols, as some of them were. For it is written, "THE PEOPLE SAT DOWN TO EAT AND DRINK, AND STOOD UP TO DANCE." Now all this befalls them typically. Yet it was written for our admonition, to whom the consummations of the ages have attained.

Titus 1:15,16 All, indeed, is clean to the clean, yet to the defiled and unbelieving nothing is clean, but their mind as well as conscience is defiled. They are avowing an acquaintance with God, yet by their acts are denying it, being abominable and stubborn, and disqualified for every good act.

James 4:4,5 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whoever, then, purposes to be a friend of the world is constituted an enemy of God. Or do you think that vainly the Scripture says, The spirit which has dwelt in us yearns to envy?

Numbers 16:20-34 And the Lord speaking to Moses and Aaron, said: Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may presently destroy them. They fell flat on their face, and said: O most mighty, the God of the spirits of all flesh, for one man's sin shall thy wrath rage against all? And the Lord said to Moses: Command the whole people to separate themselves from the tents of Core and Dathan and Abiron. And Moses arose, and went to Dathan and Abiron: and the ancients of Israel following him, He said to the multitude: Depart from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be involved in their sins. And when they were departed from their tents round about, Dathan and Abiron coming out stood in the entry of their pavilions with their wives and children, and all the people. And Moses said: By this you shall know that the Lord hath sent me to do all things that you see, and that I have not forged them of my own head: If these men die the common death of men, and if they be visited with a plague, wherewith others also are wont to be visited, the Lord did not send me. But if the Lord do a new thing, and the earth opening her mouth swallow them down, and all things that belong to them, and they go down alive into hell, you shall know that they have blasphemed the Lord. And immediately as he had made an end of speaking, the earth broke asunder under their feet: And opening her mouth, devoured them with their tents and all their substance. And they went down alive into hell, the ground closing upon them, and they perished from among the people. But all Israel, that was standing round about, fled at the cry of them that were perishing: saying: Lest perhaps the earth swallow us up also.

No, Rock isnt more sin then any other music style.

girls dancing almost naked.
I am sorry to say that pentacostal catagorize things and forget the others.

everything not of God is wicked and depraved.
If music is played by brothers in christ then why attack it?
as long as they are god centered.

 Re: rock and roll music

I think it would depend largely on the lyrics and their meaning. Not all rock music is the same, and not all that is played on rock stations or called rock is rock. I mean, there is Black Sabbath and Metallica, and then there is Elvis singing "Don't Be Cruel". See the diff? One must ask, what is the message and is it a carnal theme or mindset. A great deal of rock music is indeed carnal and should not be part of your life. This is where good judgement and discernment come in. Ask yourself, 'If Jesus were with me, would HE want to listen to this?'
