Christ Remix?

A friend of mine sent me this video. At first, I laughed it off as just another weird thing that Christians do. But, after giving it a chance, I realized that his lyrics are good.
So my question is, is this Christ-honoring?

“Christian” Music vs. “Secular” Music

September 24, 2008 at 4:06 am (Uncategorized) (, , , )

I’ve been a music director at Cross Point Community Church for a little over two years now. I love my job, but I’ve discovered that I have no influence with people other than Christians. To remedy this, I’ve recently started playing music in bars again.

I’m not playing “Christian” music in the bars; I’m playing “secular” music.

As a side note, I really don’t feel that God cares what kind of music I play as long as I do it to the best of my abilities. All music can be worship music. I played with my 90’s cover band last Monday night a worshiped all through “Round Here” by Counting Crows.

But the important thing is that I’m getting to know more people outside of church. I’m having influence with people outside my circle.

Do you have influence with non-Christians?

Christian Rock Bands Who Are Rocking My Face Off!

June 16, 2008 at 9:00 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I don’t normally listen to a lot of “Christian” music, but there are a few guys in the industry that are doing an awesome job with the talents that God has given them. These guys have songs that are good enough for secular radio.

Starfield– These guys have consistently gotten better from album to album. There production is just as good as any All-American Rejects record.

Mute Math– This is one of the best live shows you will ever see. Period.

Superchick– There new record comes out in 2 weeks, but you can get 3 of the songs now on iTunes. These guys are getting heavier and heavier. I can’t wait to see if AC radio will play the new stuff.

Future of Forestry– If you like ambient rock, then you will love this group.

Sanctus Real– These guys are the perfect arena rock band.

Tenth Avenue North– This group is more like Lifehouse. They have great lyrics and catchy melodies.

Mikeschair– These guys do dance rock better than any band out there. There record should be out this fall, so check them out.

Hillsong United– These guys raised the bar for corporate worship. They are amazing live and are one of the few bands that are able to be completely transparent on stage. They rock!
