Got you didn’t I? I’ll be you weren’t expecting that one, just like I wasn’t expecting the topic to be covered in a recent article by Russ Breimeier on Christianity Today.
It’s really a great article and brings to the forefront a discussion about contemporary Christian artists that use some coarse slang and profanity in their songs. What do you think? Is it more reflection of anti-Christian behavior or just a sign of the change in the world we live in? If it’s the latter, how do you balance that with being IN the world but not OF the world?
Ever heard of a Christian artist that’s snooty, always wants more, lustful, jealous, fat, angry, lazy? If you weren’t paying attention, I just rattled off a list of the 7 Deadly Sins. I didn’t see anything listed about language, but all the other ones seemed like pretty normal or almost accepted shortcomings we see in many artists today. Why doesn’t that bother us as much as a little profanity?
