CCM [Contemporary Christian Music] artists justify their avoidance of “Jesus” and Christian lyrics by claiming they’re using Christian music as a tool for reaching the lost. When used for the purpose of “talking” to the world — they can justify, saying or not saying anything – because after all, they’re TRYING to reach the lost! But Christian music was NEVER meant for the lost world. The Bible is very clear – Christian music is “sung unto the Lord” – not the world!
Not only that — the vast majority of people purchasing CCM is Christians! It is not the lost world! Rather than reaching the lost [which is wrong in itself] CCM is “preaching” it’s “watered-down, anti-Jesus, unCHRISTian, lovey-dovey, non-judgemental, cool, worldly, fleshly, feel-good” message to Christians!
The purpose of Christian music was NEVER meant to evangelize the lost!
God’s method of reaching the lost is the preaching of the Word of God.
