Spoke at the Lighthouse youth group in Paola, Ks Wednesday.
The director asked me to talk about music, and making decisions on what to listen to and what not to listen to.
I also mentioned that we (not "they") need to be discerning regarding "Christian" music.
To me it has nothing to do with loudness, beat, or any of that other closet-racism stupidity.
It does have to do with the lyrics, and what the song is "teaching."
Afterward a young lady asked me for an example.
I said that, off the top of my head, one of the dumbest songs I've ever heard is sung (and I assume written) by Michael W. Smith. This is not an attack on Smitty...I watched him when he was keyboardist for a teen girl named Amy Grant...
But this song is screwy. Won't bother to say why...listen to/read the lyrics and think (it took the senior high girl a little while to see what was goofy with the song):
