A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
There is a growing trend among Christian media to try and make it more “relevant” more “real” and less preachy so that it will appeal more to a non-Christian audience because these artists feel that they should be able to say or do whatever with their so-called art. In order to achieve this goal of mainstream media relevance, there are some, not all, nor the majority of Christian bands, that are starting to cuss, and when I say cuss, I don’t mean saying the word hell in a Biblical sense, but we’re talking they’re dropping F-bombs in the music, and sometimes according to NewReleaseTuesday.com, a Christian music site, even in some worship songs!
A lot of these bands that are doing this are on independent labels, they’re not on the big ones, so you won’t hear their music on K-Love. And it’s not just music either.
A new faith based movie, Generational Sins has pretty much every dirty word you can imagine.
As Christians, we’re supposed to be in the world, but not of it, but it seems now that too many believe that in order to reach the world, we must imitate the world that the message of the gospel isn’t enough, we must try and make it look cool and relevant to today’s society and morality. Adopting the values of the world is never gonna reach them.
I’ve listened to some of the songs by so-called Christian bands that cuss and it sounds nothing like a Christian song, and if it doesn’t sound religious to me, what are those looking for a message apart from what the world is offering think?
If you have to be like the world in order to reach the world, maybe you’ve been apart of world the entire time. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
