RE: Christian Rock
Newsboys (whose co-founder came out as an Atheist and we can blame for God's Not Dead) is hit or miss. Ditto with DC Talk and Third Day, which were both mentioned.

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Christian Rock
I was going to say Third Day, because I loved them when I was a Christian, but I just went back and listened to a few songs and I can't get past the message. I think I've still got a little bitterness that's probably clouding my judgement, but all I hear is the words. Maybe it would be easier to enjoy now if I hadn't memorized the songs years ago and didn't still have them burned into my brain. I'm a big southern rock fan, and Mac Powell's voice is great, but I won't be listening to then again any time soon.

"I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
- Isaac Newton

Mac powells voice is the only reason I still listen to them.
Except for blessed assurance. That's just my favorite hymn and I can't get over it.

RE: Christian Rock
Could this thread be renamed "Oxymoron"? Unsure

Tongue

[edit] This ain't Christian Rock just because Jeebus's name is in it, mind you! Tongue

RE: Christian Rock
I was gonna say 'Stryper' but I remembered how much they sucked.

A funny thing happened on a drive I had recently. An audiobook I was listening to talked about Katie Perry being a struggling Xtian music artist before she threw it all away and sold her soul for sexpot-pop music. I guess one never knows what these melodic praisers will eventually become.

I'm also on a guitar forum, and I wouldn't say it's crawling with Christians really, but at any given time there are more than a few guys there whose primary experience or outlet is playing in the praise band at their church. Good for them I say, if they can get something that's actually beneficial out of it.

Anyway I've had people tell me they would listen to Christian Rock even if it wasn't Christian, that some of the musicians are decent enough that their stuff can compete with the best of secular rock. I wouldn't presume that only secular and non-religious people have the capacity for great musicianship or even musical genius.

So I figured, who better to ask than a group of non-believers. Anybody here been exposed to Christian Rock that was SO well written and well played that you didn't care it was Christian? Or you folks here who are still attending a "modern" church, but for appearances' sake - can you admit to enjoying the music despite the content? Or is it all, as I suspect, pretty much nothing without the woo frosting on top?

I've only been to church twice in my life so the answer is "no". The only christian music I've ever heard is Handel's Messiah hallelujah chorus segment. The entirety of Handel's Messiah is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay tooooooooooo looooooooooong. I guess christmas music is christian music....sort of.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
