We know its OK to play Christian music, but what about the christian who sings and listens to secular music? Is it okay?

The Argument

A Pastor once said ”All christian should play and listen to only “Christian” music.

Another one disagreed and said ”  I know  secular musicians who are Christians”.

I’ve heard others argue that there’s no such thing as a right or wrong answer.

The latest comment I’ve received was from a guy who writes secular music. He said ” I write secular music in order to reach the lost for Christ. It’s not about the style but the lyrics. You know this how I get my daily bread” he says.

To confuse matters even more, Many Christians who attend church today are lovers of secular music. They play it in their bedrooms EVERYDAY and on big occasions, such as weddings and birthdays anniversaries.

The Tension

Should Christians truly listen to secular music?

I believe Christians should stand for what they believe. Your comments on this will be highly appreciated as many Christian are confused about this question. Some would argue that there is nothing inherently wrong with any particular style of music as It is the lyrics that determines whether a song is “acceptable” or not for a christian to listen to.  But what do you think?

Should Christians write or listen to secular music? Please enjoy the  parody below and share your thoughts.

  1. As a Christian, I listen to some types of secular music. In my view, it all depends on the content of the music. Most of the secular songs we have today are filled with vulgar and immoral comments and as such a Christian should not listen to such, but where this is not the case, I don’t see any wrong in listening to secular music by a Christian.
