CCM - The Ultimate Gateway Drug?
I don't know that I agree with all of what this guy has to say, but he really struck a chord with me when he basically says that we should not basically try and take any and everything and then to sanctify it and say "it's for the Lord".

Gateway Drug?

What do you think?

While I found some points to be interesting, I found myself thinking his views to be quite judgmental in addition to him coming across as both pretentious and condescending. I've seen similar attacks on CCM for years now. Often, if only for the very instruments used in it. They make money, it's sinful. They play electric instruments, it's of the devil. They use any at all, it's blasphemy! I'm not sure what's more harmful to Christianity these days, the devil, or the very people who profess to be followers of Christ yet continually attack others who share the same faith.

possibly. there always subculture with music subgenres. also there was time when christian bands were market as safe alternative to band x. for me I like pop punk and reliant k. when pop punk declined it made hard to find any good bands. good deal of bands in the underground are clean but not all band in subgenre are clean plus the christian pop punk band were more mature. funny thing is when jason dun left hawk nelson and found the lights go down even though all music is secular the band is full christians and have more mature clean content that I was use to.

How dare he speak a non-biblical language. That satanic piano music in the beginning. Real Christians only play the harp. /sarcasm

I don't agree. Music that has the name "Jesus" is everything but wordly. I mean, even when our classic hymns were first written they were "contemporary".
