    I have heard that music plays a big role in one's religion.

    Rock music is said to have the most influence (most Christian-people stated that it is hazardous).

    Can anybody shed some light (no pun intended :-)) on this subject?

    Yo, here's another about the theology of Paul Tillich. Pay attention to the lyrics at 2:00 and around 2:40.

    Why the hell can't church be like this?

    Thank you.

    But perhaps there was a misunderstanding (or i just didnt explain properly😕).

    According to them, rock music isnt healthy (something about being a rebel).

    Listen, let me tell you something. You're fairly new here I can tell, but most people in this forum don't know what the hell they're talking about. If they are in the BWA clan, you can trust them. Like me for example, I'm a Baptist preacher and I listen to rock music. You think Jesus wants you to listen to "Bringin in the Sheaves" all damn day? Hell Naw!

    I don't listen to Gospel rock music. It is of the Devil.

    Why do you say that? I respect your view.

    But aren't people inspired to do things by Greater Powers?

    I just can't begin to tell you how detrimental contemporary Christian music is to the spiritual well-being of people. The lyrics are shallow and horrible. I consider it cult behavior. Plus whenever I see a contemporary Christain singer, I have this image of them trying to seduce me with their charm. Dammit, if I wanted that, I'd find a whore.

    That was said objectively 😉

    So I am on the right path if i keep Religion and music theories separate?

    God isn't going to judge me based upon my choice of music right?

    Ever heard of Bach, Handel, Brahams? They didn't keep their religion separate from their music. I'm just saying contemporary Christian music is crap.

    The BWA professor of musicology is Nemesio. He is the authority on the site for music and theology. Look, I have to go to church now. I have some 250 million year old fossils that I'm gonna show to the young people as I convey the theory of evolution to them.
