Does ALL Rock Music invite demons?Does ALL Rock Music invite demons?
It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
Does ALL Rock Music invite demons? YES!
All Rock Music is SATANIC CONTROL
When you listen you invite demons into your psyche.
Henry Gruver died and spent a short time in heaven and was sent back.
He said there is NO BEAT IN HEAVEN. Beautiful harmony, lovely colors, but no beat.
Music is very important in the spiritual life of a child of God. And the wrong music can spiritually destroy the child of God.
I ask you to prayerfully obey, 1 Thessalonians 5:21-23
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
Abstain from all appearance of evil.
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly
and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Before I was saved, rock music was my life. A former rock guitarist, (and yes, I still play the guitar) I know the love for rock music people have.
But I also know the source and effects of rock music. I have spent thousands of hours researching rock music.
Do the rock groups worship and serve Satan? They surely do, by their own admission.
Rockers openly declare their loyalty to the devil. Black Sabbath has been known to make altar calls to Lucifer in some of their concerts.
Fleetwood Mac openly dedicates concerts to the witches of the world.
Iron Maiden concert in Portland, Oregon first words were Welcome to Satan's Sanctuary.
Rolling Stones says rock music is all about sex. That certainly is NOT GODLY!
Venom has printed on their album - We are possessed by all that's evil.
Rock groups believe they have Satan's protection. This has made them all the more brazen in their conduct and music.
The Nature of Rock Music
Christians can be so naive, especially when it comes to their involvement with rock
But Christian is OK ..... isnt it?
Is Christian Rock Music Christian or Satanic?
Contemporary Christian Music.
Music must pass a test before it can be labeled as Christian. It must contain correct doctrine, and
(a) its lyrics should be edifying, spiritually oriented, clear, conforming to biblical truth, and point our focus to Jesus Christ,
(b) its score (the arrangement of the musical notes) should not overshadow the message conveyed by the lyrics, but should compliment it, and
(c) its character (the "attitudes" in the music and of the performers) should be consistent with the purity of the message it claims to convey (reverence, worshipful, etc.).
Each of the above screens must stand on its own; i.e., one "good" aspect of the music's nature cannot sanctify any of the others.
Please refer to Eph. 5:18,19 and Col. 3:16 at the end of this report.
(a) Lyrics - Our spiritual songs must be sufficiently clear so as to convey the truth plainly, and must be consistent with biblical revelation
(i.e., sound doctrine)-the words should focus upon the Lord Jesus Christ and encourage practical submission to God's order in all our personal affairs.
Most contemporary Christian music can be rejected on the basis of lyrics alone-even when the lyrics are audibly clear,
the predominance of false doctrine and/or the shallow view of the person and work of Jesus Christ is often appalling.
(b) Score - The meaning of the word psalms originally denoted a striking or twitching with the fingers (on musical strings);
only later did it come to mean a sacred song sung to musical accompaniment (Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words).
Our psalms, or the arrangement of the musical notes, is a vital ingredient of the all-encompassing term we call "music."
This is because it is the area in which we are usually the most ignorant; i.e., medical research clearly supports the contention that musical tones and rhythms in and of themselves
(i.e., without lyrics) can cause physical and "emotional" reactions over which the listener may have little or no control.
Since the score of contemporary Christian rock music, with its syncopation and slurring of notes, is virtually indistinguishable from its secular counterpart,
one has to wonder if spirituality is being eroded and carnality is being propagated.
(One should always assess "Christian" music thusly: does it stir the flesh to "boogie," or the spirit to praise the Lord?)
(c) Character - Our hymns, or the character of the music, is its most obscure component.
The character of much of what is called "Christian" music may best be characterized as charismatic, irreverent, universalist,
socialist utopian idealistic, superficial religiousness, neo-evangelical, expressionistic, ostentatious, or in a myriad of other contexts
(e.g.; What is the character of the music at a so-called Christian rock concert when whatever message is presented is punctuated by
screaming guitars, smoke bombs, and a general atmosphere of frivolity?)
And because the character of the music is not always readily apparent to the listener, it can have the most insidious effect on believers;
i.e., tolerance or acceptance of false doctrine can arise from constant subjection to deficient and improper attitudes in music.
The character of "Christian" music is easily adopted by listeners, which can then draw them away from the firm foundation of the Word.
Music worthy of the name "Christian" ought to stimulate and simulate emotions compatible with true spirituality-the appropriate response to God and His Word.
- Larry Norman is frequently dubbed "the father of Christian rock." A LIE.
Norman stated that rock 'n' roll music originated in the Church hundreds of years ago, and that the devil stole it!!
Therefore, Norman's battle cry is to 'take rock music back for Jesus' sake!'
(Since rock 'n' roll music did not even come into being until the early 1950s, Norman is obviously unable to provide one shred of evidence for this claim).

FWIW, whenever I walk into a grocery store, baseball game, etc, etc, where they play rock music constantly, I can attest to this...it's as if my mind and soul get hijacked.
Yes, just b/c one is a Christian, does NOT mean he or she is sin-proof. The bible clearly gives instruction on sound wisdom and avoiding evil.
If any says he's without sin, he's a liar, and has called God a liar...
