Relationships….getting over the “Blah” – Eowyn’s MySpace Blog |
This Is Worth reading…
As of late, I’ve become a bit of a fan of Eowyn [I have all her albums to date] and like the way she shares her faith and her heart. She’s gotta be one of the most evangelic Christian artists out there. I sincerely believe she cares about her fans, and youth in general.
There’s not a lot like that today.
Back in the early days of Christian music [Think Jesus Movement, 1960’s ~ 1970’s], the main intent was to bring people to Jesus, therefore they had F*R*E*3 concerts, and then took up a freewill offering at the end.
Nowadays, it seems that it’s all about the MoNeY$, and in saying this a few bands come to mind:
- Family Force Five
- Relient K
Now don’t get me wrong, I like the sounds of these bands, but they never seem to really have anything to say from a faith standpoint. I believe, if you’re gonna call yourself a Christian Band, you should have a Christian message in at least 50% of your lyrics. and I’m being generous. I mean, there’s bands/artists out there with no real claim to even going to church that have more faith-base to their lyrics than most “Christian” bands! Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this picture?
Again, I’m not going full legalism here, I like a good, fun song as much as the next guy, and I’ll even admit I like a good love song when I hear it [yes, I’m a sap! LOL!]. But if you’re gonna claim his name, you gotta have the message to back it up!
