  • […] only there was a similar site built around Les Miserables. As I blogged recently, Google could only find me two very brief Christian comments on the message of grace, law and […]

  • David I guess for me it falls into the same area like someone callnig themselves a christian’ plumber or your #1 christian’ car lot. In the Bible, the term was used by non-believers in order to describe those who follow Christ. I guess as people, we try so hard to label ourselves and our music, then turn around and talk about how we don’t want to be bound by labels. Worship’,’Christian’ and Secular’ are all just terms. How I allow God to use me and the music I write determines it’s place. If I used a wrench on a pipe at the church, does it become a christian’ wrench. However, if I use it elsewhere, is it a secular’ wrench. Shouldn’t I just use my wrench’ as unto the Lord so that He receives the glory for it no matter the context? Just because I don’t write a song with God’s name, is it then a secular’ song? My fear is that with the christian’ label we are not reaching people where they are. We can possibly be closing a door that God may want wide open.
