i knoe hes christain hes sold out for god i know that : )
Hey, how are ya? :) Umm, don't take this the wrong way, but I really think he needs to do a ENTIRE Christian album when he records. I think if he wants to show people he means business with God, that he shouldn't compromise, and should do ALL Christian songs.Just my two cents :) God bless
what would be God's different plan for them though? to play music that appeals to worldly people? wouldn't He want them to make music that glorifies Him over anything else?
I don't watch American Idol myself anymore (I went on an indefinite hiatus when Simon left lol). But I think it's great to see a guy following Christ to be on a secular show like American Idol and MAKE IT KNOWN that he is follower of God. From a tv blurp that I've seen, he sang a faith based song on the American Idol stage, and was criticized for it by the judges. One judge even said he thought it was a possibility that he could be voted out for his song selection. Wow, pretty intense! It takes guts to sing about Jesus to a crowd that would rather hear about booze and sex. Even though I really don't know much about him, I would personally like to hear a mixed record from him of mainstream songs and Christian songs...If he feels like doing an all Christian album- hey- I would be all for that as well!...But I think he could possibly reach more people if he did a mix. People may be buying his album to hear a sweet (clean!) love song, but will have songs about Jesus intermingled with the mainstream ones. That would be awesome- to get an unbeliever's hands on songs they would NEVER listen to otherwise. Song of Solomon didn't have much focus on God. The book of Esther never mentioned the name of God once...yet they're books in the Bible. God made romantic love. God made the skies that artists like Owl City like to sing about. I think it's possible to release songs like these and still honor God. Keeping things consistently clean in mainstream songs would be an awesome testimony in itself since most artists are moralistically challenged in their music selection; one song may be clean, then another raunchy. (I.e.: Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel" and some of her more neutral, yet uplifting songs like "Wasted," then moving to "I Don't Even Know His Last Name") Consistency in morals is something I pray he keeps to in whatever he sings! It will be interesting to see what his album's songs are about...we shall see...:)
