Do People Still...?
Do People Still… consider “Christian Rock” a sin?
I graduated from a very strict Christian School which I attended from the age of five. I remember wearing a “Jars of Clay” t-shirt to PE. A teacher stopped me, somehow recognizing the name, (probably because it was derived from an NIV verse, GASP. More on that in the future) she asked, “Isn’t that a ‘Christian rock’ band on your shirt?” Out of fear of what would happen to me if convicted, I sheepishly nodded yes. She went on to explain to me, very sternly, that I could never wear the shirt back to PE again or appropriate action would be taken. Probably something along the lines of locking me in a room and making me listen to the music they DID approve of.
I have been out of high school for 8 years now, seems much longer, so I sometimes forget about these kind of things. Really? Contemporary Christian Music a sin? Now I will be the first to admit that a lot of it sucks, but I wouldn’t call it a sin.
