Is everything you are doing reflecting the glory of God on your life? If another person listened to your Ipod, would what they think of you?
Christians would do well to monitor what they feed in their souls. Whatever you feed your self is what come out of you.
Is the music glorifying God? Uplifting? Positive? Encouraging? Or is it depressing, negative, or degrading?
Many listen to the beats first and decide if they like a song. The lyrics to a song should be carefully considered before even attaching to the beats, because one can be deceived if he or she doesn’t. One can be lead astray from the truth of God by following a beat. Unfortunately, even some Christian songs have a line or two out of the whole song that does not line up with God’s word. Examine each word, each concept, each picture being painted by every song you listen to and determine if it is benefiting or detracting from living the best life you can for the Lord.
Not everyone can do something ‘cold turkey’, so give yourself a realistic goal. Take a week a examine a few songs each day and the final test question would be: If I were standing in front of Jesus, would he approve of this song? Also: and why 0r why not? If He would not, then get rid of it. You do not want anything that not only holds your spirit back from living a godly life, but would turn the Lord away from you, to bless you , because He is holy and mr satan legalise will bring up something to Him to prevent your blessing.
