A Song On Who Deserves The Good Music

Why should the devil have all the good music? It’s still a valid question. I was probably nine years old when my big brother bought this album from a Christian book store. Years later I’ve brought this song back on the playlist and my kids love it. Music, as a powerful and beautiful element of this creation, does not belong to the enemy, though it has often been hijacked. Pleasure, as dear uncle Wormwood reminds us, is God’s territory. As one of the most powerful tools humans have to convey emotion and words, it’s no mistake that musical worship has been a part of the Church (and God’s people before that) from the very beginning. And one of Islam’s – and Christian fundamentalism’s – biggest blunders was when it declared most music sinful.
