I'm posting this mainly because I'm confused about some song choices I like to listen to. Usually I live my life by the rule "if I don't know it's probably bad", but this is something I just can't seem to live by that on because the music isn't "bad" really. Don't get me wrong I love hymns, worship praise, gospel, and all kinds of music (usually that's all I listen to), but I also get into bands like Skillet, Switchfoot, and so on. Bands that claim to be Christian yet don't actually seem to have any Christian influence in the bands, and actually refuse to call them Christian. I also like bands however that sound close to these and do not claim to be Christian at all: Linkin Park, Evanescence, so on. Anyway to get to the point is is wrong to listen to music like this? Usually I say yes to myself because of verses in the Bible like 1 Corinthians 10:31-33. I realize that Paul is actually saying here that we need make sure that everything we do is towards God's glory so that God may reveal Himself through us if He so chooses, but by listening to that kind of music would people still be able to see His glory through me?
