Should i just delete them and have no Christian music at all? Have others here experience of this?

I deleted all of the Xmas music from my collection. I don't want to hear it. It get's in your head. Once it does it plays over and over! I don't even like to shop during that season of the zombie. I get blasted by their music.

Doesn't everyone feel like that about Christmas music every year on Dec 27?

I never head much religious music but there was this Christian rock band I used to listen even without being a theist - I think it was Skillet. anyway I haven't listened to it in a long time

Did As I Lay Dying count as a Christian band before their singer hired a hit man for his wife? Smile

Why do you think you should delete the music? I'm atheist and I certainly can enjoy Brahms* and his Messiah not to mention other religious art. There is simply no reason to do what you thinking about, or at least I do not see one.

Do you perhaps mean Handel's Messiah or Brahms' Requiem?

Christian music is sometimes great -- check out Bach.

But "Christian metal"? You might as well drink near-beer. Metal is about nonconformity and fearlessness. Metal is not concerned about saving your soul; metal is about bulldozing it, and in the process turning over new and fresh dirt inside you.

Christian music can be really great stuff. "Christian metal" is about as enjoyable as gonorrhea.

Handel's Messiah. My mistake. Thanks for correcting.

A choir piece I like is called "Heaven father" (in another language), the music is great, the voices are great (love male choirs).
