Q&A – Should I only listen to Christian music?
Written by Project Inspired | July 23, 2011
So I was wondering about Christian music… I love listening to it but my friends don’t listen to Christian music much at all. So when I’m with them in their car or at a party I find myself singing along [to their music]. Do I tell them I don’t want to listen to that or what should I do?
This is such a good question! One of my readers wrote a post a while ago about listening to songs that glorify God. In the comments section there are some wonderful song suggestions. They may not all be Christian songs, but they have an uplifting theme. Here is a link to all of my posts that talk about music…the good, the bad, and the VERY bad! I think you can listen to secular music, but you should be aware of which artists have terrible messages (see: Ke$ha, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj) or devilish intentions and share what you know with your friends. That way, you aren’t isolating yourself, but you’re also helping others make smart choices about the kinds of songs they allow to enter their heads and their hearts.
Girls, what do you think? What do you do when you’re with friends who are listening to music that you consider inappropriate?
