Burnt Out, Church Hurt

Overvolunteered… Overworked… Burnt out… then Shut out? :: Find a Restful Flock

When you’ve been burned by “church hurt” it’s not time to leave God’s presence or allow satan to isolate you and get you depressed… it’s now time to find “rest” in a true Restful Flock of believers that follow the Chief Shepherd.

If you walk in Godly character and forgiveness, God will use “church hurt” to call you closer into His presence and elevate you in your responsibility to His Body.

The devil feels threatened by what God put inside you, so he then threatens you and tries to get you separated and depressed. Don’t fall for satan’s lies.

SoS 1:6 Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept. 7 Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?

Christian Love Songs… but Christian SEX songs???

I’m not too into sex in marriage music… can’t say anything scriptural on it though. Song of Solomon has sexual love in it. But does that mean Christians need sex music? My wife and I don’t need it! Most sex music doesn’t glorify God… its for single folks to lust.

Think about this though: if a gospel artist had a sex-in-marriage song, could they perform it live in your bedroom?

No, because sex is between a man and his wife.

Could my wife and I put out a Christian sex-tape? But we’re married! Nope, some things are private.

So before musical recordings were invented, sex-in-marriage music wouldn’t even exist. So logically, it could not be done live, biblically. Even if Christian sex songs were biblical, you technically couldn’t even have a christian sex song before recording albums were invented, because all music was performed live. You’re sick if you want a 4 piece band and 2 singers in the room when you are having adventurous fun, perhaps making a child with your wife.

People have been “making love” for 6000 years… all without recorded music. If you want to use music in the bedroom you can use any song. A  jazz song, a worship song, a wedding song, a gospel rap album (been there, done that). We don’t need a new genre of Christian sex music.

However, Christian wedding music, celebrating a Godly covenant is not a problem. Music for a wedding is different from music for sex. It still should be glorifying to God and scripture based. Jesus performed His first miracle at a wedding, and Jewish weddings had music and dancing.
