Christian Singers Give Up “Everything”


I hear in Christian songs all the time that the singer says he will, “give up all his dreams” for God. But I don’t know that God wants us to, “give up all our dreams.” Some of them, maybe. // Also a few years ago, a “worship band” was people who did music for the churches their ministry–donated. In some cases, maybe the church paid people to provide music, I don’t know. But today, you have Christian “rock stars” who play at stadiums and release albums and are multi-millionaires. Should anyone be able to become a millionaire from doing worship music? I have a lot more respect for people who, like U2, are Christians, but are just doing entertainment music, not a worship experience. What do you think? Is it right to merge worship music and commerce? –C.S.
