Taylor Swift's Red Album sold 1.2 million in a week, almost edging out the all-time record set by Eminem ten years ago. Kevin Swanson reviews the lyrics of the album. Should Christians be listening to this stuff, if practically every song is one-night-stands, hook-ups, and break-ups? Is this OUR culture?
Excellent Program! It is a sad commentary on today's culture when a CD filled with songs about fornicating would sell 1.2 million copies in its first week of release. My prayer for Miss Swift is that she believes on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, becomes saved, and repents of her sin. She has a tremendous influence among youth, especially young girls, and she is encouraging them to follow her example of hook up, break up, and repeat. I'm concerned that when she's older, this will become marry, divorce, and repeat. I know she is young and likely a bit naive, but I pray God would send an older woman in her path to teach her to forsake her foolishness and wickedness.

Great Sermon! The music form of CCM used to BUG ME..i play an instrument, and i believe the chord structure of CCM is hard/soft rock is 'bad' with form. I myself like the old hymns with their chord structure. Even in the early 70s, they had Bach on top 40s--a few times

Great Sermon! I wonder why the 'giant'(shes 5'11") started singing like this? Was it because Tim Tebow didnt want to go with her? Well, he wants a Chrisitan woman to be his wife. Now I know why young girls are looking so unloved--girls driving their boyfriends and giving them their bodies..girls getting pregnant without even having a boyfriend..the only people showing affection are older men to their women..a positive: the only thing a young woman to do is to STAY A VIRGIN==dont even kiss them, because you could get HIV
Or is it similar to Proverbs 5. The entire chapter---a silly boy goes into the home of a married woman/ same as a young woman going into a married mans house that promises her a weekend trips. These silly men and women who want to be fiscally conservative AND NOT MORALLY CONSERVATIVE---just doesnt WORK==he even talks about wealth going to FOREIGNERS! because of immorality...soooo-your grandchildren just may fornicate, and then we hyperinflate and STARVE unles we repent as a nation.
