Zombies, Wine, and Christian Music

I’m tired of Christian music. Well at least what is labelled Christian. What makes music Christian? The lyrics? The style? The pretty CD cover? The deep neck v’s and skinnys? The reference to god or God in the acknowledgments?

I remember shortly after giving my life to Jesus, [actually thinking about it now, I gave Him death. He gave me life], I remember going through CD acknowledgments and I’d look for references to God, or Jesus, or the Holy One and whatever that alluded to Jesus. If I found something, I would label the band as being Christian.

“Hey, did you know that U2 are a Christian band?” and “Guys, I think Iron Maiden are Christians too… no wait… nope, sorry.”

Michael Gungor has written a brilliant piece along these lines. Well worth the read here.

Gungor Music are a BRILLIANT band. Get your hands on their stuff.

Get out there and make good music. [note to self]
