Have you ever really paid attention to the songs of country music? Most of them are about drinking, partying, cheating on their spouses, violence, murder, lying, jealousy and so on. Now I admit there was a time when I really liked country music but since I met Jesus, this music is no longer appealing to me. Why? Because most of it stands AGAINST the Word of God. There are very few songs that are worthy to be listened to. If you don’t believe this; just turn on the station and listen to one song after another and write down what each song was about. And another thing, if you listen to country music, you are filling your mind with garbage and with the sins of the world. If you listen to gospel music, you are filling your mind with the things of God. A person who will sing a gospel song and praise God in song and proclaim they are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb and then turn around and listen to a song about drinking and partying is a double minded person and is unstable in all their ways.
James 1: 8
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (One cannot place one’s Faith in the Cross and something else at the same time. Such produces instability, a type of Faith that will never be honored by the Lord. -Jimmy Swaggart Study Bible)
This is not just about music or singling out one type of music; this is about what we feed into our minds. Think about it. And most importantly, Pray about it.
When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
