Anonymous asked: What do you think about secular music?
What do I think about secular music? That’s probably not the question you should be asking. Let me explain why.
To say something is secular, you’re talking about anything that’s worldly, or with nothing inherently religious about it. With this then, several things are considered secular: education systems, most governments, military, etc.
Secular music is that which isn’t inherently religious. It could be war songs, military cadences, film music, the ‘happy birthday’ song, Nokia default ringtone, etc.
So what do I think about secular music? I think it’s important to have it. Here’s the question I think you really want to ask though; “what do you think about morally erosive secular music?”
I can’t stand it. I avoid anything with potential to corrupt my thoughts and desires, whether its in music, places, visual art, poetry, movies, prose, people, etc. So yes. I listen to secular music, but not just any kind. Same way I don’t listen to just any kind of religious music. “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8)
I hope this answers your question somewhat. Thanks for asking.
