uh... nice post...

This site isn't strictly for reviewing Christian music and Christian bands. As you can see with a quick glance through the site, CGR also reviews albums by The Juliana Theory... a band that has never confessed Jesus Christ as their savior in their music. But they do have a Christian theme to much of their music, just like Evanescence. That's why they're here.

Talking the relativity of be or not to be a christian band...

hi! first of all, excuse me for my poor english, i'm from Spain and i've a poor english...
Well... I don't think than Evanescence are a christian band... yes, they speak of god, and their lyrics doesn't speak of the rock topics (sex, drugs,...) But not only is a christian rock band a band who speaks of god or jesus... There are bands that you don't think that they're christians, but they speak of some christian topics... there are some exemples, like Live, K's choice, Zwan, Silverchair or Smashing Pumpkins... They're interested of god... they're christians, but they're not a christian band...
ahmmm... i hope that you answer to me... i like to read your messages... if you want something you can write to me, my mail is mistykmallorca@yahoo.es

Your english is much much better than most young teenagers english. I can't figure what they're saying most of the time.

Ummmm as far as I know none of those bands have Christian members. I know the Billy Corgan isn't a Christian and I the doubt the rest are. The guys in LIve are very spiritual but not actually Christians. I've never heard it said that members of K's Choice or Silverchair are Christians.

Amy Lee (from what I hear from people who DO know) is not a woman of Prov. 31 morals. I'm saying this in the nicest way possible. I highly doubt she is a Christian. (But the Lord my surprise us yet).

I listen to the band because I believe their music has value, not because one or two or however many of the band members may profess some form of "Christianity."

However...

Would you care to elaborate? In what way is Lee not a Prov. 31 woman?

Notice to all:

This is NOT a thread on the spirtuality or Christianity of Evanescence. This is a thread for reviewing the CD, Fallen. Any further off topic posts will be deleted. Please take the talk about their Christianity or lack thereof to the designated thread in their forum. Thank you.

Hey, I'm an emo girl (most of my favorite bands are on independent labels, if that tells you anything), and I *love* Evanescence, so I have absolutely no idea what this poster's deal is. Ah, well, to each his/her own.

How does that constitute as garbage? It was the truth!! and i did not see that until after i had posted it... i was in a hurry and at school... Besides, that was the answer to the debate that was being had... What better source to end a debate than to go straight to the source... i did not mean to start trouble, so for that i am sorry...

Garbage is Art and my own opinion of a sheltered Christianity perspective. The truth? Sounds like I could start a debate. Odd, there's already a thread for the debates.

Sounds like another spliteroo, Art.

I wasn't calling your content garbage. I only called the post, which was in this thread when it wasn't supposed to be, garbage. No offense meant.

When i first heard the song "bring me to life", i thought, wow that's a really good song, and i loved it. Then i heard the rest of their CD... I think they are a good band with lots of talent, but most of their songs are a little too "mellow" for my liking. Still i think this is a pretty good CD and i recommend it to anyone who likes more mellow stuff.

As to all this business about Eva being christians or not.....does it really matter? It's not a sin to listen to non-christian music, in fact it can even be refreshing at times. Just take it for what it is, a great modern rock cd.
