[MENTION=89910]questdriven[/MENTION] : I see, so you do like it now? (Or are at least neutral). It's interesting because I think that subjectively a male musician who perfects a rigorous, rasping, hard rock type of music might well find it quite in keeping to pierce his ears as well. But really it's so widespread, including among Christian young men. All kind of subjective, but it's the pure, hope-giving message that it the central aspect. I actually think that believers should shun wordliness, but by definition this goes to the core of the person's being, starting inwardly and working itself outwardly. Paul talks instead about being transformed according to the renewing of ones mind (Romans 12.2). Blessings.
