May the Lord guide us in our ministry.
Someone asked this question : “When you listen to the current gospel music and you are sitting in a bar, would you still continue drinking?”. The answer would be 90% Yes.
This brings the question of “Has gospel music lost the aspect of touching the soul or rather is it touching more of the body?”
Music for a fact has grown as now we have different styles of music so it will be hard to compare songs sang in the 1990’s with the songs being sang now. Secondly the listeners have changed, the current ones would like to listen to certain type of beats and probably music that flows to the current trends.
This is good to music but the question that pops up is that, “Do we have to sing songs that match the tastes of people to make them live a normal life or should we rather produce music that reaches out to GOD?”.
If Don Moen’s music or better still Christina Shusho’s music is turned on in a bar, I can tell you for a fact a drunkard will rise from his feet and be convicted in his mind. But what state are we in ? The gospel music which has grown and being played on probably all entertainment spots is not saving the soul rather someone will just continue sinning when they listen to it.
Are our artistes going on the right track or its okay as music is good as it reaches out to many.?
When will you sit at home and listen to music that makes you think of Jesus rather than the artiste?
Are we just singing positive music and not Gospel Music ?
