Music and Song

‘We can’t be simplistic about CCM. What Sandlin sees at those festivals is impressive. (I’ve been to more than 40 of them. I know the feeling. It’s quite triumphant.) But the CCM revolution is a very mixed blessing. God has raised up some powerfully Biblical music. There are thousands of artists who are accountable to local churches and being taught by good pastors. At the same time, CCM has allowed the culture- the consumer culture- to make huge inroads into the church, and has captivated the minds and artistic tastes of millions of young people. My career in youth ministry tells me clearly that the fruit of the current CCM ‘revolution’ is very meager, indeed. Christian kids going from concert to concert, camp to camp, event to event, looking for a musical high and paying adoration to their favorite ‘stars.’ This isn’t worship or discipleship. It’s corporate culture making the church just like the world, and paying for the privilege.’

*CCM = Contemporary Christian Music*
