Can you name three rock or rap songs in the past year that has lifted up chastity before marriage?
And if you took sex, drugs and rebellion out of today’s contemporary music, what would you have left?
Though a disproportionately diminished number, you would have some decent songs.
My point is that before any moral teaching of ours can positively affect our kids, we must pull the plug on the sewage that’s being pumped into them everyday and help them discern morally uplifting music from morally debilitating music.
We not only have the right to do this, but as godly parents, we have the responsibility to do it!
