I-am scris lui Steve Miller şi, cu amabilitate, mi-a răspuns. Acesta este răspunsul pe care-l public cu acordul său:
As you know from my book, I don’t feel any style is evil in itself, so I probably wouldn’t have any problem with a Christian band playing their style. One of my sons likes heavier metal styles. To him, other styles appear very wimpy. I don’t want Christianity to seem wimpy to him, so I like to find bands trying to glorify God in a style he relates to.
I think some of the main issues in Christian music are:
1) Are the hearts of the musician in the right place?
2) Are they sound in their lyrics?
3) Are they playing to the right audiences – those for whom their style is a match. „become all things to all men.”
There was controversy about Vengeance Rising’s violent graphics, and I suppose there should be limits there, especially if one is appealing to a younger audience.
Sad that the leader fell away and turned to the dark side, but alas, it happens to some pastors as well.
