Wow. That's really all I can say. Forum was awesome. The music session today really impacted me. I have to admit I went into it thinking I would not get much out of it. However, I must admit I was wrong. The question comes to mind. Should we as Apostolic Pentecostal young people be abstaining from secular music? I never really sat down to think about it. Music has the ability to completely transform emotions, it can move your spirit, and it is very powerful. Music by its very nature is designed to touch the heart and soul. Think about it. When you are listening to love songs what emotions does it elicit? When you are listening to rock n roll what do you feel? During worship service at church, what are your actions?

Now I am not saying I am going to throw out all my non Jesus music. I do believe there is secular music that is good. Truthfully, my Ipod is filled with everything from Worship to Country to Elvis. It really all boils down to this: if you feel convicted or if the emotions and actions the music elicits from you are not Godly then you might want to rethink what it is you are allowing into your Ipod, car, stereo or computer.
