It Is a Cryin' Shame

It says something pretty sad about the pop culture of our land when one of the Grammy nominees for record and song of the year comprises a crude expletive that has to be asterisked out.

But I suppose such profanity will be the next thing that proponents of "contemporary worship" will insist on bringing into their songs, ditties and aspiritual jingles, on the premise of speaking the heart language of the people and connecting to where they are at. "This is the colorful expletive generation, so that is how we have to speak if we want to convey the Gospel appealingly."

Perhaps what is called for, instead, is the preaching of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

Ya think?

You're such a hater, man. You just need to be more loving. *wink*c

Maybe, since that praise music is so popular, someone ought to start writing praise songs with at least proper doctrine in them. Who knows...might just make a difference!
