This is the question that many people are still asking themselves but they remain in limbo without a clear fact to support their own actions.
Being a musician is a gift from God. The problem comes when the singers try to promote things that God hates.These songs is very seductive and catchy due to their lyrics and dancing styles used.
The types of most secular music nowadays includes, rnb, reggae, bongo, gengeton, hip hop and secularised gospels.
Music is powerful and it can have a great effect on how you live. Therefore, the music can influence you either negatively or positively. Therfore, encourage one another with Godly music, it gives us joy, hope and inspiration during hard times.
Put on a new self and allow Jesus Christ to bring a new life unto you. Colossians 3:16."let the message about christ fill you completely in your lives, with wisdom to teach and instruct each other. With thankful hearts, sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to God."Here God is pleading with us to use our talents to worship Him and influence others in the right way.
Godly music will allow us live as people of light and full of love. Ephesians 5:19."when you meet each other, sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs as you praise the lord with all your heart."God is asking us to serve Him in fulness of our hearts, therefore it is either Him or the world.
When we worship God in tongues and prophecy, we must do it in an orderly manner,and it should be for the good of everyone. 1 Corinthians 14:26.
Since God takes care of Creation, we must sing and praise God and our thoughts should please Him for He is the only one who makes us glad and happy. Psalms 104:33-34.
The Bible instructs us to shout praises to the Lord and praise Him as long as we live. Psalms 146:1-2.
Let us hook for the best in our lives. For a harsh rebuke or correction is better than the songs of the fools. Ecclessiates 7:5.
Therefore, according to Philippians 4:8,most secular music does not meet the requirements made in that verse, "don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God." The content of most secular music is all about wealth, earthly pleasures, love, sexual desires, war, death and crimes.Therefore has no message from high.
Bad company can be in a person and can be music thus we must starve ourselves from earthly things and discipline ourselves with things of God.1Corinthians 15:33.
Am not saying that all secular musics are bad because am not here to judge but use the wisdom of God to discern.Because will you like your friends to praise you, and you don't care about the praise that God can only give!
In conclusion, everything you do do it for the glory of God, anything besides that don't convince yourself that it is from God because God doesn't t associate Himself with earthly things and entertainments.
