Many Christians today assume that just because an artist is under a “Christian” label that the music is Christian. It is very dangerous. It leads to erosion in doctrine as well. We must return to music that presents a clear message. No more using vague pronouns such as he, him, you, etc that don’t identify who is being discussed. It leads to private interpretation. Christian lyrics must present doctrine that is consistent with the teaching of the scriptures.
I believe that much of the deception in the music realm stems over the bible version issue. Christians do not know which bibles to read. They read corrupt versions and base songs on the corrupt texts. The doctrinal errors presented in the texts becomes embodied in the songs. Christians need to study this issue and learn to interpret scripture by scripture. A good resource is http://avpublications.com
Christians all too often will listen to secular music that presents messages about how to solve life’s problems the worldly way instead of God’s. Psychology and new age philosophy is leavening throughout the church. Christians need to begin to reevaluate the lyrics they listen to in light of the scripture to see whether it contradicts the teaching of the scriptures.
I intend on discussing this issue more in detail as I acquire more knowledge about the subject.
