“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
There are 4 reasons why most church musicians are going to hell.
note: everything in the article is just my opinion.
1. Church musicians don’t study the word.
Let’s face it, musicians and singers don’t really read or study the word they just use verses to inspire them in time of need, which is great but that’s all they do.
It’s because we are artists not scholars, we want to create beautiful music that inspires us and makes us float in the air, blah blah blah.
Of course I can’t speak for every church musician but there seems to be a pattern brewing up. We all say we read the bible but do we study and meditate in the word to try to really understand Gods true nature and purpose for our lives?
I believe in truth and it will set you free.
2. They were taught what to believe than why we believe it.
In Sunday school as kids we were taught to believe accounts in the bible as true, like Noah and the Ark and Jonah and the whale.
As I grew older I realized they were many questions that were unanswered that baffled me. Does this relate to you?
This is a huge epidemic in local churches today. In today’s world there is a huge rise of atheism and agnosticism.
Our local colleges and universities are brainwashing our young vulnerable kids minds that God and Jesus are just myths through idiotic philosophies of evolution.
Evolution is not science it’s a philosophy. You can cannot study history in a test tube.
3. Pastors are not equipping with the word.
I have never been to seminary and I’m sure they offer classes on Christian apologetics. But why aren’t they being taught in Sunday school?
Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. 1 Peter 3:15
The apostle Peter and Paul were Christian apologists.
What’s apologetics you say?
No, you’re not apologizing. The Greek word for apologetics is “Apologia” which means to give a good reason for what you claim to be true.
Pastors who teach the word of God are accountable for sharing truths to their flock. Pastors and leaders of the church are gonna be judged more harshly when they face judgment day. Pray that your pastor is equipping your congregation with the right mental and spiritual tools.
Emphasize Christian apologetics to your pastor and see if it can be taught in Sunday school.
You don’t want to enter a gun battle without any guns. Especially today it’s a war zone out there.
4. Church musicians try to impress not express
There are so many church musicians who just wanna play on the church stage to look and sound good. After the service they grab their check and take off. It’s just a gig for them.
One should question whether they’re Christian or not. Again I can’t speak for for everyone but I see this all the time.
Everyone wants to be admired, loved, respected and appreciated especially musicians it gives us a natural high. It’s a “me, me, me” world instead of a Jesus world.
When I was kid at youth camp in the early 90’s I would sit right next to the worship band. I would get ready early and get to the sanctuary up the hill early before the service would start and grab a seat right next to the bass player. I was just in awe at how cool they sounded.
I wanted to do that and I eventually did and it became my part of my career. Everything is done for his glory alone.
Churches big and small have got to establish standards for their musicians and if they don’t want to obey well then there’s no need for them. Everyone on the platform represents Jesus Christ and that’s a monster privelige that I am proud to represent my God.
Those are my 4 reasons why most church musicians are going to hell.
