“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’ ~Stephen Covey”—
No matter what you say SECULAR MUSIC will remain the devil’s work. Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, Drake, Beyonce etc. all glorify themselves, money, drugs, sex etc. They promote things of the world, NOT THE GOSPEL. No they are not bad people but they aren’t GODLY people. Their music influence you whether you know it or not. “oh its just music” been a lie the devil used for years…
How you know they’re not GODLY: Well we know Jesus, the disciples, the apostles etc. were GODLY cause of their work. Cause of the fruit of their spirit. What does Beyonce work say for her? Does it shows that she’s GODLY or you just gonna go by what she says. Remember not everyone who says LORD will make it into heaven.
Its cause of GOD they are there: They are using GOD’s blessing to promote the devil. Sex was a blessing from GOD and the devil perverted it to a point where its disgusting, sold, diseases filled. Remember the devil tries his best to copy GOD. God blessed them with the talent but they are not using it for GOD. If they were they would be doing the same thing Jesus did, preach the word and make disciples.
Music doesn’t influence me: Well why do you listen to certain music base on your mood? Music has spirits they connect to your emotions they have an effect on you. Wonder why so many wear things rappers wear, act like rappers do, buy their clothing, quote them etc. Their music have an effect on us.
At the end of the day 1 John says he who loves the world doesn’t have him. The world is things that are not of GOD, so think to yourself are their lyrics, their work etc. of GOD? Are they a reflection of Christ? Are they following GOD with their whole-heart?
