I have had friends ask me why I don’t like contemporary Christian music.
1. I am an old curmudgeon.
2. Most of it is not very good.
3. Much of it is just an attempt to copy other popular music.
4. The big, real reason – WHO IS THE CENTER OF ATTENTION? WHO IS THE FOCUS OF THE PERFORMANCE?
How many times have you heard a performance in a church and the histrionics of the performer are what is the main thing in view?
Hey, if you want to be Beyonce’ or Britney Spears or David Cook then by all means go for it.
Just don’t do it where I’m trying to worship.
I have friends and relatives, one in particular, that play and in Praise and Worship bands. I have no doubt at all about this friend’s sincerity and heart for the Lord.
