Valentines Special - Episode #303

posted: February 12th, 2016

We originally aired this episode exactly one year ago, and it features some of the best love songs penned by Christian songwriters.  I find it unfortunate that some Christians turn their nose up at love songs because they think Christians should be writing songs about God all the time. I believe that perspective is very short-sighted concerning what is "about God."  Do Christians experience falling in love, going through a break-up, frustrations in parenthood, great …Read More »

Valentines Special - Episode #303

In the 1980's, some of the more fundamental evangelicals listened to Christian music of that day and counted the JPMs... the "Jesus Per Minutes." They would deem just how "Christian" a song was by the number of mentions God, Savior, Jesus, Lord got in a song.  It was probably done with good intentions, like wanting the music one hears to be more devotional or overtly evangelistic.  However, there were some severe consequences.  Of course artists …Read More »
