New Artist Laura Izibor!

This young lady was named an Artist to Watch by Rolling Stone Magazine and selected as a “Next” artist by VIBE magazine. Atlantic Recording Artist Laura Izibor, is the Ireland born singer of the Billboard hit “From My Heart to Yours.”I am not into alot of secular music but I love this album. Especially these two cuts "mmm, and from my heart to yours"

Question: Is there anything wrong with listening to secular music if you're a Christian?

I have always wrestled with the old problem of secular versus Christian music. It's hard for me to avoid all secular music do to the fact that I work in an environment were secular music is played all day.When music is done with excellence and beauty I struggle to reject it, unless what is advocated is clearly sinful and offensive.
I know Christians who would never listen to secular music who would watched Sex and the City and R-rated movies.

  1. I have purchased her cd and enjoy it, not one of my favorites, but I think she is a good artist.

    As far as christians listening to secular music I think it is ok depending on the message of the music. PJ Morton has a book that is on my "to purchase list" that talks about the subject.

    I think a lot of music today goes against what is God's will, but there are songs out there positive songs, love songs, that don't contradict God's Word.

    I am not an expert nor do I defend all secular music, but truth be told some gospel music does not always line up with God's word.

    Just my thoughts.

  2. I agree with Humbly Beautiful. There are plenty of married Christian couples and don't think any of them are trying to get their swerve on to Amazing Grace or Jesus on the mainline. I say listen to the song, evaluate the lyrics, and then move on from there. I think if anything, most folks I know will continue to listen to the music of their childhood for nostalgia's sack but really struggle to find good music for the grown, sexy, and saved.

  3. Great post! I have gone back and forth with this topic with "Christians" and non-Christians. what I came up with is that some people will just continue to be whatever they ant to be! I happen to LOVE music I also LOVE the Lord! A good song is a good song, I listen for the meaning behind the song. Our God is a God of relationships and a lot of music is about relationships, I see music as an expression of some type of feelings just set to music!
    I have not heard Izibor's CD but I love that single "From My Heart To Yours" it's a beautiful song!

    Contrary to popular belief all gospel singers are not going to heaven & all secular singers are not going to hell!

  4. I like that song too! She is very talented indeed.
    Secular music vs. Christian music? I never got that. Christians play guitars and horns and violins, they sing praises and anthems and the blues and songs that touch our hearts. They write hymn as well as ballads and concertos and symphonies and music that lift our spirits and make us laugh. It's art, one of God's greatest gifts to humankind. I don't believe we should put God in a tiny little box or that He puts us in one either. We can decide with some taste and common sense what music we embrace.

    As christians, we must be wary at all times. What is the meaning of the word secular? According to the world book dictionary," adj., n. 1 connected with the world and its affairs; of things not religious or sacred; worldly: secular music........". We can listen to different styles/genre of music. However what type of songs should we listen to at all times? The A postle Paul spoke to the brethen in Colosse, Colossians 3: 16, " Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Before my conversion, I listened to a lot of slows etc and I remember that each night in deep sleep, each song would be playing over and over, in my head while i sleep. See why our songs need to be like what Paul said? We are spirit , remember. Forget about those secular artistes and so called "secular" christian artistes. Our songs must not be empty, neither full of vain babblings which entices the flesh. On our work places we obviously will hear secular music but we can choose not to listen!!!
