Happy Halloween? (music by High Society)

I've been keeping my eye on these guys. They've said in interviews that their goal is to shine the light into the music industry. Here's their first song called "Devil" released today...on Halloween. Stuff like this is happening in the Christian scene a lot now. Stuff that makes you go, "Huh? Is that ok?" What's cool about this is that it allows people to think about why they believe what they believe about Christians and our role in the arts. Actually there's a movement that is redefining what Christianity looks like. Not necessarily straying away from scripture but broadening the scope so to speak. That's awesome because it's a better picture of what the Christian community looks like. But for me...I don't know...I'm not really that kind of artist. You'll probably never see me getting a tattoo, drinking, getting my ears pierced, and releasing songs on Halloween. (FYI: I'm not saying that this group does all of the above. I don't know them like that.) I'm not bashing it. Not at all. It's just not me. I'm more classical I guess. But I've been wondering...if more and more people start heading this way, will I be considered one of those "legalistic" Christians in the long run? I guess it shall be what it shall be...

  1. I am not a big rap fan but when I listen occasionally, I really look into the words of the song. And that's what I did, I listened and seriously didn't find any edification from it. It centers on the devil and the many things he is but does not exalt the source of all light---Jesus! I've heard of many up and coming artist that said they wanted to reach out to the lost by giving them the kind of music they want (metal, rock among others) and giving a Christian spin to it. Dakness can disguise itself as a light but "Light" do not need to disguise as dakness for a "true light" eliminates all darkness. There's been a lot of compromise going on here and although they say that it's for a good cause, many of them were truly for the old cause of fame and fortune. Sad but true!
