“What is the significance of these statements in the light of
sacred music? It is absurd to think that one can unite Christian
lyrics with the medium of the world (rock music) and expect the
meaning and communication to remain the same. Furthermore,
this kind of rationalization is in conflict with Scripture in that it
proposes that right or wrong is established by oneself—one’s
own motivation. Man becomes the judge and jury of that which
is right or wrong, since he is the only reliable source as to the
purpose of his actions.” pg. 31

“These responses are not isolated opinions. There are many
knowledgeable writers and experts in the fields of psychology of
music, philosophy of music, and sociology of music who concur
with such statements and make considerably more pointed
remarks. The great majority of these would have no experience
in the Christian life or with the Christian community. Yet they
perceive the issue of music and communication better, from a
social and psychological perspective, than many Christians who
have a spiritual viewpoint.” pg. 33
Tuning the Human Instrument
Dr. Steven Halpern
“The loud volume, drums, and repetition of much of the contemporary
rock genre bears a non-coincidental resemblance to trance music
found in other parts of the world.” pg. 101
The Disciplined Lifestyle
Dr. Steven Halpern
“There are music forms, whether secular or sacred, which create moods
of pensiveness, of idealism, of awareness of beauty, of aspiration, and
of holy joyousness. There are other forms of music which create
moods of recklessness and sensual excitement. Surely it doesn’t take
much judgment to know which forms are most appropriate for
religious functions.” pg. 87
God's New Song
Leonard Seidel
“The narrative tells us that when David played, the evil spirit fled from
the king, indicating that God was able to break through and continue
to work in Saul’s life. It also indicates that there is a certain type of
music around which demons feel very uncomfortable. Check the
other side of the coin. There is a type of music under which evil
spirits find quite easy to progress with their work and influence.” pg. 9
“The pastor preaches the truth. May I suggest to you that one of
the practical functions and purposes of music in the church is to
set the spirit. And that spirit, which can be brought about by the
music more effectively than by any other medium, must, in its
character, reflect the truth. The body of believers which mirrors
this kind of duet, truth in Word and sound (music), then
experiences a oneness which is rare in the Christian community.
And what a thrilling prospect is promised at the end of that
verse: 'for the Father seeketh such to worship him.'” pg. 88
The Sound of Social Change
R. Serge Denisoff/Richard A. Peterson
“There can be no music without ideology.” pg. 107
The Sound of Social Change
R. Serge Denisoff/Richard A. Peterson
“New Left defenders of rock..., like media advertising men, assert that
the music has great ideological impact because the message is put
across in strong symbols carried by the energy of the music itself.” pg. 2
Satan's Music Exposed
Lowell Hart
“Rock, rhythm and blues, jazz, pop tunes, Bossa Nova, etc. are all
products of the world. These musicians are taking the fleshly and are
saying, in effect, 'We are going to appeal to the spiritual.' It cannot be
done. It is neither logical or scriptural.” pg. 95
The Secret Power of Music
David Tame
“Perhaps here we find as clear a pointer as any to the philosophy
underlying the 'new music'; existentialism, of course, is the general
doctrine which denies objective universal values or morals.” p 101
The Secret Power of Music
David Tame
“...the ideal is that there should be no ideals, and the rule must be that
there should be no is more devoid of idealistic foundations
that at any period during the history of man.” p 72
Music & Ministry
Calvin Johansson
“The characteristics of the gospel must be matched with similar
characteristics in the music if the music is to show gospel meaning. In a
sense, the music becomes the gospel. It is the gospel in musical action.”
pp 42-43.
“What is worldliness in music? How can melody, harmony, and rhythm
be considered worldly? Certainly it is a difficult task for the average
believer to define strictly that which is worldly and that which is
acceptable music.” pg. 90
“For those whose conception of music is still centered on words, harmless sound,
entertainment, and meaningless communications, the question of how notes and
rhythms could possibly become sensual might still be a burning issue. Human
communication includes words, pictures, and sounds. Allow me to ask some very
practical questions. Can vowels and consonants become either blessing or
blasphemy? Certainly they can. Can an artist, with the raw material of pen and
paper, create beauty? Yes. Can those same materials be used to create
pornography? Obviously. Just as vowels and consonants can become blasphemy
and pen and paper in the hand of an artist can become pornography, so notes and
rhythm, in the hands of a composer or artist, can become sensual. Is the picture
coming into better focus? Most can grasp the first two examples because they are
more overt. Music is more subtle and much more powerful than either of the
previously mentioned examples. Remember, it reaches the heart and soul.” p 100
