I have never heard of cake, at this stage of my kids lives, my kids listen to the contemporary Christian radio station. Two reasons, I like the music and agree with MOST of the songs, and I can leave the room or turn it on before bed without any real worry that they would hear anything that might be too grown up for them. The most scary thing on is the weather report.If my girls were older and interested in other genres (which is quite possible), I would probably react very similarly to how you did. Someone's intent in a song is not half as important as how the listener reacts to it, as evidenced by the comments in your link. If the song opens you up to suggstion, remove that from your life. Satan is about temptation, what temps one, will not always tempt another. I personally found that I had to avoid too much of certain genres of music through my teens to early twenties, too much made me edgy and angry. I happen to be rather sensitive to music.
I like lots of rock music. I guess my problem is, that I don't really listen to the words. In this particular song, " satan is my motor, the only one that understands", is spoken quite clearly. Whether those guys are satanists or not, it's not words that I want my daughter hearing, at this age......................or any age really. I don't consider myself a prude, but direct references to satan don't work for me.
unless a song is about Satan getting getting his butt handed to him
You are what you think about on a daily basis. This is hard to understand. If you choose ot have garbage, or good stuff, coming in to your brain you will get a very predictable result. The Bible says, "as a man thinks in his heart, so is he." We as parents are guardians of the gates for our children so we need to be aware of what is coming in to our homes to the visual, auditory and relational "gates". It is critical what input our kids are getting.Just a question for us as adults, "how careful are you to 'guard the gates' of your life?" If we aren't people of integrity in our walk and talk our kids won't be either. More is caught than taught and our kids will clearly see hypocrisy in our lives and homes.
How's it going?What you say is true. Which is why the television almost never gets turned on in our house. My 5 year old has determined that "stupid" is a bad word, so those shows that use it, are off limits. I can't even watch Pawn Stars anymore because they said "what the hell" the other night. I don't even really notice those words on TV..................and all we ever watch is History Channel or Animal Planet. We have our own little censor. Nothing gets past her. PS- I checked into CR4 the other day, for the first time in months, and ended up getting banned for a week for fighting with the global warming crowd. Hope all is well.
That's my man!
They still won't let me post.................probably forever.The moderators are a bunch of young libs. As usual, politics are fine, as long as it agrees with their views. They didn't like me bringing up the carbon credit scam. The biggest financial scam in human history.
What made you post there in the first place?
In the beginning? My Dad was an engineer, and was on there before he died. He also couldn't stand liberal BS.I jumped on last time, because I wanted to talk about graphene, drank a few too many beers, and got sucked into the global warming crap. Always a mistake for me.
I can see the connection, graphene being carbon and the libs claim that AGW is Co2 (carbon) connected. So you got suckered into the whole argument of stupid.My friend, have you not learned yet, that when the conversation is over a libs head, they usually go with an emotional plea or call you a racist? But for what it's worth, they are the losers, we got you and you're an asset to any forum.
