Is music spiritual? Could the music your kids are listening to actually be contributing to a strained relationship with you and/or God?
My experience with families at Shepherds Hill Academy tells me, absolutely!
Arguably, I often say the most destructive and overlooked tool of the devil used against our kids and parents today is what they are being indoctrinated with by way of music.
Bach said, “All music should be for the glory of God and the refreshment of the human spirit.”
Plato wanted music regulated by the state.
Music is deeply spiritual–even the artists of questionable music will admit the spiritual influence in and of music.
As a good parent, we must say “No” to music that brings a check to our spirit–weather our kids or our own. It just may be our most sublime defense against raising a rebel.
