Day 9: Music, and Christian Music

November 17, 2019 ☼ struggles

What kind of music ought a Christian to listen to? Is he confined to hymns and praise songs, or can he listen to secular music as well?

This question comes to me because recently I’ve become more and more comfortable with the artist: NF. While technically a Christian artist, he writes very depressing music. He came out of a very difficult childhood, and it shows in his music. When I start listening, I feel like I can’t stop. It connects with me on a deep level, but it also makes me depressed. I don’t think it brings me closer to God.

I like it a lot, but should I be listening to it?
