Most of the present day secular songs have nothing to take home. No moral values, no wisdom. The place of sex and money is amplified beyond reason. God bless you as singles in a relationship, you sit down with your partner to watch secular songs for 1 hour;  you both may leave that room with you lives never remaining the same.

I understand that there is a shade of secular song that is in a way in between not Christian not Muslim but not corrupt like the “Fellas”, “Asa” and some old folks. But I advise strongly that Christian should abstain from even this kind. If you are a Christian why  not exhaust Christian songs first, deal with new songs and even old school Christian song and they are sure to bless and occupy ones heart  for a lifetime.

Remember, Scriptures admonish that we should choke our body, spirit and soul with God’s word and things that edify us.

Secular song is any song that does not have it’s bearing on God. The message of such song is opposed to the culture, nature, person and the principles of God’s kingdom and the Christian faith and practice, in other words they run contrary to what Christianity stands for.

See we are new soldiers in a very old war, or are you not aware. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col 3:16-17”

We can’t afford to entangle ourselves with worldly matters. I have said all of this not to impress you but to impress upon you that Christian have no business with Secular songs. I fear for our world but thank God Jesus died and He gave us an assurance that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church.

  1. Secular music to a great extent negatively affect the hearer/listener. A person is a product of what he/she hears, say, and do. A christian who frequently listens to/watch secular music will surely meditate on the wordings he listens to/watch and in doing that, if the wordings and dance are not edifying the listeners will therefore meditate corruption. Although some songs by secular song artists are dedicated to God but a man that does not know God cannot sing to glorify God. They believe everyone is being churchy and so doing a song to God will attract people to listening to them.For true christians I believe we were created to give praise to God. True worship unto God is done in spirit and in truth. I beseech all christians to seek to worship God with inspiring songs of praise and worhip (Pure christian songs).
