Ok – I’ve been trying to think a bit about this lately. As a regular gym-goer now, I have the chance to listen to more (some?) music. With that has come some uneasy feelings over some of what I’m listening to. So I stopped and asked myself why I was feeling bad about liking some of the music I’m listening to.What it mostly came down to was that there wasn’t a single track of “Christian” music. But then I stepped back and asked myself what I meant by “Christian”. My definition was too narrow. Christianity, as summarized in Scripture, is True. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. But that doesn’t mean anyone “outside the camp” can’t know what is True (Romans 1!) or at least echo it. And what I like about these (ahem) “secular” songs is that the echoes come flying out at times. I shouldn’t feel uneasy about this; in fact I should enjoy it.Coupling this with the fact that, sadly, the majority of Christian music just isn’t up to the level of a Natalie Merchant or what I’m listening to, and you’ve got this guy sticking with the echoes (or outright references to Truth) until I can add to my collection. Whether “Christian” or not…
