Frederick is a guy born into a Christian home with supportive parents. He loves football like every other guy, photography and mostly music. So, I guess you won’t be surprised when I tell you that he’s listened to every song you know. (or are you?) There’s no song you mention that he doesn’t know. He’ll sing the song lyrics from A to Z, even, sing you the tune that was played before the bridge came up. He listens to all genre of music by the way.

Frederick noticed that several thoughts popped in his head everytime. Sometimes he wonders where they actually come from but he still hasn’t figured it out yet…

Sometime last year, I published a post on secular music. If you haven’t read that, you should. Click here.

This is a sequel to that post and I will be discussing if as a Christian or Non-Christian, you should listen to secular music.

Basically, secular means ‘wordly‘. So we can say that secular refers to ‘things of the world‘ right? Some examples of secular music are national anthems, birthday songs, wedding songs, songs about nature to mention a few. Secular also means ‘non-religious‘ .

For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.

1 John 2:16 NIV

Now, the Scripture above gives us an idea of what the world is all about – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

I’ll say that any song that promotes those characteristics above – lust, pride or what have you is secular.

Well, you may not have known but music draws your attention consciously or unconsciously. The contents of the song sink deep into your heart and spirit. This implies that if the song is about lust (immorality) or money or pride, you find out that you begin to ruminate on it effortlessly . Prov. 4:23 tells us to guard our heart because everything we do flows from it. This is why in Scriptures, we are advised to meditate on particular things.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Philippians 4:8 NLT

Also, songs are a means through which people invite demons into their lives unknowingly.

Okay, so you reading this, I believe you remember the Charlie Charlie trend that was on some weeks ago. Do you know some people unknowingly invited a demon, if not demons into their lives? Now that is what I am talking about. David played music with his harp and it sent a demon packing out of Saul (Check 1 Sam. 16:14-23). This implies that a demon can also be invoked into one’s life just by listening to the wrong music.

So Frederick, myself and the person reading this have successfully figured out where your thoughts most likely come from – the songs you listen to!

If you thought I was going to tell you not to listen to a particular artiste, you got that wrong. What am I trying to say? All I’m saying is that you should be watchful of the music you listen to.

“I have the right to do anything”, you say – but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything” – but not everything is constructive.”

1 Cor. 10:23

I hope you were inspired. Please feel free to share to that person on your mind right now. Also, drop your thoughts in the comment section below.

    True words.., music draws one’s attention consciously or unconsciously. It becomes a breeding ground for our thoughts pattern.

    However, I’m not sure one can actually avoid listening to secular musics. We hear them everywhere, even if you don’t voluntarily play them. The ears are always open, and you simply find yourself ruminating on that particular track played, other times you unconsciously sing out loud even when you’re no longer around where it was initially played 😹

    Music is a powerful force really…, It goes into one, occupies him and controls him. Yes, we have the right to listen to any genre of music we wish to, it’s a choice but not all things are benefial. It’s good to take up things that are healthy enough for one 👌

    Beautiful piece GG.., more grace 🙇🏿‍♀️

      Thank you very much! ✨

      ‘The hearing secular music part’ though 😹

      It’s not avoidable but we can try to be intentional about not ” listening “. Hearing is passive while Listening is active.

      God help us! 🙏🏽

    Music is a medium through which godly or ungodly thoughts permeate into the heart, therefore we must always watch out for the genre we listen to.

    Nice job as always, more grace.👍👍👍
