The Devil's Music.
As long ago as the 1960s rock music was being called the devil's music.
At the time most of us passed this off as an over-reaction by religious fanatics, mostly in the United States.
But as I learn more about it I am beginning to believe that they were right.
Rock bands use astrology. But if you study it more closely you will realize that it's backwards - they only use the negative interpretations of each sign and planet.
This is done on both an individual level and generational level.
They may use some positive images to rope you in but they will soon be turned negative.
So peace and love became pleasure and sex.
Freedom and equality became drugs, promiscuity, and insanity.
Passion and power became casual sex and pure evil.
Sexual equality became dominance, intimidation, and castration.
The spiritual search became witchcraft and magic.
Look more closely at the words and images.
You will find negativity there.
And don't be put off by a white cover.
This is merely to mislead you.
So now it's not so much that I believe in the devil but that the rock musicians themselves believe it.
And that's why rock music has negative effects.
Jesus said, "'No good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit; for each tree is known by its own fruit.'" Luke 6: 43,44a (NRSV)
The fruits of rock music are: drug addiction, criminality, promiscuity leading to divorce, rebelliousness, sex obsession, mental illness, suicide, blasphemy, and death.....
Rock music is the devil's music.
