JESUS AND THE BLOOD HAVE BEEN DELETED FROM MOST CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN MUSIC

THE GOSPEL MUSIC INDUSTRY

The fad in Christianity among many churches is to blend as much with the world into its music as possible. The mentality today in much of the church world is to do nothing that would be offensive to the world, but to make the church comfortable and inviting to the non-Christian.

Many of the old Gospel Quartets used to go both ways. They would sing in churches the praises of God on Sunday and then go to Las Vegas, Sin City, and perform with the hottest rock stars who were inflaming the passions of the people to commit sin the rest of the week. A lot of top Gospel singers go both ways today. Even the most immoral rock stars and immoral country singers often make Gospel albums. The Gospel Music Industry has become a BIG MONEY MAKING BUSINESS. What kind of gospel has evolved where God's people can get in bed with the devil and feel comfortable and then go sing and shout in God's house?

Today, there are almost NO SONGS ABOUT SALVATION, THE CROSS, THE BLOOD, HEAVEN, REPENTANCE or the JUDGMENT DAY and there are really just a few songs that even mention the name of JESUS. Most songs today just talk about God or "the Lord", not Jesus. They can easily fit in with any religion or god. Often even non-Christian religions use these same songs. They are politically correct and inoffensive. Some songs you can't tell if they are about God or just love songs. The words 'God' or 'Lord' have become generic terms that can be applied to any god. For example, the Beetles song, "My Sweet Lord" was referring to Hare Krishna of Hinduism and not Jesus. Without a doubt this has come about because of the politically inspired INTERFAITH movement spawned by the universalists.

The Wesleys founded the Methodist denomination. Out of 80 hymns the Wesleys wrote that were considered to be included in their hymnals, the word 'blood' appears 31 times. 25 of the hymns have a clear reference to the atonement; i.e.: 'His blood can make the vilest clean', 'There is a fountain filled with blood', 'What can wash away my sins, nothing but the blood of Jesus'. The Baptists and many other denominations use the Methodist's atonement hymns. Yet, a survey has shown that the Presbyterian (USA), Episcopal, Disciples, United Church of Canada, and United Church of Christ hymnals have now deleted songs about the blood atonement. Though many Methodists still sing these old hymns about the blood, the atonement is no longer preached from their pulpits.

Now we have had a hundred years of the modernist-liberal-progressive deconstruction of Christianity in which the blood atonement is the number one target to be removed to make way for the new age religion. The 1989 Methodist hymnal did not have one reference to blood or the atonement. Replacing these hymns are contemporary songs that are said more relevant for this new age.

In Gospel music today, talent and style have become more important than the lyrics or if the singer really is a true godly Christian . Few can tell the difference between anointed music and this soulish 'Christian' music. IN THE CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT TODAY THEY HAVE FOLLOWED SUIT. MOST OF THEIR CONTEMPORARY MUSIC SAYS NOTHING ABOUT JESUS, THE BLOOD, THE CROSS, SALVATION OR HEAVEN. Many in popular Gospel singing groups live double lives, living hypocritical lives of sin outside the walls of the church. Gospel music to many musicians is nothing more than a business, a career. Nothing has been paganized more than the Gospel Music Industry. Much of the "hip hop" music of the world has been 'christianized' and promoted in many churches. This has not happened by chance. It is being orchestrated by evil men behind the scenes for the purpose of neutralizing and finishing off true Christianity.

In the name of BEING RELEVANT to the youth; the fashions, styles, music and dance of the discos have been put on center stage on "Christian" television, Christian concerts, and in the House of God. Now it is fashionable to pattern the church after the discothèque with dark rooms and light shows. In the attempt to bring worldly kids to the church, what is really happening is that worldly wolves, in the name of evangelizing the church kids are baiting them to develop a love for the world and to desire to go to the discothèque. This is producing Christian kids who dress, talk and live exactly like evil kids in the world.

Question? WHERE DID THESE STYLES, MUSIC AND DANCES ORIGINATE? They came out of the dance halls where every fire of lust and sin is constantly inflamed. THE CHURCH IS IMPORTING THE WORLD AND BRINGING ITS SONG AND DANCE FRONT AND CENTER INTO THE HOUSE OF GOD. This is bringing the SPIRIT OF THE WORLD, Baal, inside the church. The Baal culture has come into the church through its popular music and fashions. BAAL IS CONQUERING CHRISTIANITY FROM THE INSIDE BY INJECTING its CULTURE INTO THE CHURCH through music.

Some defend copying the style of the world's music, dance and styles by saying, "WHERE ARE WE GOING TO GET OUR MUSIC and DANCE FROM if not from the world?" Do you mean to say that unsaved people are more creative and more inspired than God's people? The question is, where is their creativity and inspiration coming from? It's not from the mind of Christ and the spirit of God? God's people are supposed to be the most inspired and creative people in the world. David didn't go to the Philistines to get the music he sang before the Lord. He sang praises to God from a pure heart of praise.

LUCIFER WAS THE CHIEF MUSICIAN OF HEAVEN

*Ezekiel 28:13 "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of THY PIPES WAS PREPARED IN THEE in the day that thou wast created."

Lucifer was the anointed cherub and the CHIEF MUSICIAN OF HEAVEN. After he fell he knew how to emulate the anointing because he used to be anointed. Now his anointing became perverted and was demonic. Satan, the archenemy of God, "transformed himself into an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14) and now has been invited by those trained in church growth to be the choir leader of God's church. The church now likes his music; his sound; his styles; his dance; and his spirit that appeals to the flesh more than they love songs of Zion.

*Psalms 137:3-4 "For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of THE SONGS OF ZION. HOW SHALL WE SING THE LORD'S SONG IN A STRANGE LAND?"

God's people today are living in a spiritual Babylon. The church has picked up the
sound and beat of Babylon and brought it into the House of the Lord.
This is being done
in the name of praise and worship.

THE ISRAELITES WERE DANCING THE DANCES OF EGYPT AND SINGING THE SONGS OF EGYPT BEFORE THE ALTAR OF THE LORD AND THE GOLDEN CALF

*Exodus 32:4-6 "And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he BUILT AN ALTAR BEFORE IT; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is A FEAST TO THE LORD. And they rose up early on the morrow, and OFFERED BURNT OFFERINGS, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and ROSE UP TO PLAY."

*Exodus 32:18 "And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but THE NOISE OF THEM THAT SING do I hear."

*Exodus 32:19 "And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that HE SAW THE CALF, AND THE DANCING: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount."

NEBUCHADNEZZAR ORDERED GOD'S PEOPLE TO BOW TO THE GOLDEN IMAGE WHEN THEY HEARD THE SOUND OF THE MUSIC. But Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego refused to dance to Nebuchadnezzar's music.

*Daniel 3:5 "That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and ALL KINDS OF MUSIC, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up."

THE MUSIC OF BABYLON AND EGYPT WERE ASSOCIATED

WITH THEIR GOD BAAL

Today, the MUSIC AND DANCE OF EGYPT AND BABYLON HAS COME AGAIN
INTO THE HOUSE OF GOD. When the Israelites did this, it brought a curse on them.

*Exodus 32:30 "And it came to pass on the morrow, that MOSES SAID UNTO THE PEOPLE, Ye have SINNED A GREAT SIN: and now I will go up unto the LORD; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin."

It is no different today than in Bible times. To IMPORT THE MUSIC AND DANCE OF EGYPT AND BABYLON (the world) INTO THE HOUSE OF GOD IS A GREAT SIN. Not only is bringing the music and dance of Baal into God's house carnal it also stirs up lust. This is building an altar to Baal beside the altar of the Lord. This has played a major part in the paganization of Christianity today.

Many Christian recording studios and Christian radio stations HAVE BEEN BOUGHT OUT BY SECULAR CORPORATIONS who are unbelievers. Why? There are at least two reasons. One, because the Christian music industry has become a big money making machine. (The world is now profiteering off of Christian music to line their own pockets.) Secondly, these unsaved owners of Christian stations can now control the product. Ungodly people are now dictating the type of music that is being sung in Christianity and played on the air. This music has become palatable to people of all religious persuasions. There are certain basic Bible themes about Jesus, the blood, etc., that are now off limits among some Christian music producers. What right do unbelievers have in setting the agenda for the type of music Christ's church sings? Christ's church has been playing the harlot by turning over its stations to unbelievers? Christianity has gotten in bed with the world. Many modern Christian songs can be taken both ways, secular or religious.

*Amos 3:3 "CAN TWO WALK TOGETHER, EXCEPT THEY BE AGREED?"

GOD COMMANDS US NOT TO BE LIKE THE WORLD

*Romans 12: 2 "And BE NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

*2 Corinthians 6:17 "Wherefore COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."

*John 15:18-19 "IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, ye know that IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU. IF YE WERE OF THE WORLD, the world would love his own: but because YE ARE NOT OF THE WORLD but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

*1 Corinthians 3:19 "For THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD IS FOOLISHNESS WITH GOD. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness."

*2 Corinthians 4:4 "In whom THE GOD OF THIS WORLD HATH BLINDED THEM THAT BELIEVE NOT, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."

*Colossians 2:8 "BEWARE LEST ANY MAN SPOIL YOU through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, AFTER THE RUDIMENTS OF THE WORLD, and not after Christ."

*James 4:4 "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? WHOSOEVER therefore WILL BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD."

*2 Peter 1:4 "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, HAVING ESCAPED THE CORRUPTION THAT IS IN THE WORLD THROUGH LUST."

*John 2:15-17 "LOVE NOT THE WORLD, NEITHER THE THINGS OF THE WORLD. IF YE LOVE THE WORLD THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM. For ALL THAT IS
IN THE WORLD, THE LUST OF THE FLESH, THE LUST OF THE EYES, AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE, IS NOT OF THE FATHER, BUT IS OF THE WORLD. And THE WORLD PASSETH AWAY, AND THE LUST THEREOF: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."

*I John 4:5 "THEY ARE OF THE WORLD: THEREFORE THEY SPEAK OF THE WORLD, and the world heareth them."

*I John 5:4 "For WHATSOEVER IS BORN OF GOD OVERCOMETH THE WORLD: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."

*I John 5:19 "And we know that we are of God, and THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS."
