We are to be conformed to the death of Christ in order that we might find life in Him. That is a given. There is, however, no evidence that we need to be conformed to death metal....whether it is His or not. Some are actually saying that the heavy metal dispensation is over for good, and we will soon be entering into a new age of life metal. So be it! It is widely held, interestingly enough, that guitar-dominated exegesis is a post reformation phenomena. Regardless, it has always been a point of conjecture as to just how many people in the early church were into death metal in the first place. Is heavy-riffing here to stay? Some things just cannot be known in this present age!

What's wrong with mixing together Sesame Street and Christianity? Unless of course the Cookie Monster is of Satan. Then again, Cookies are snacks which can lead to glutony. Nah! Who am I kidding? Their aint a thing wrong with mixing together Sesame Street, Guitars, and Christianity.

All kidding aside folks, I like heavy metal along with the rest of them. I am a throwback to 80s metal and enjoy the occasional Judas Priest, Metallica and Iron Maiden tunes (though there some questionable ones there too)

However, you cannot justify death metal by biblical standards. Bands like Deicide, Possessed, Cannibal Corpse, Gorgoroth, Rotting Christ (don't you think THAT's a giveaway there???) and many, many more glorify and worship Satan, blaspheme Christ and His love and glory, glorify death, necrophilia, pedophilia, torture and every other vile and evil thing under the sun.

I don't care if some of them do it as a gimmick. It is still wrong. And they do it as a gimmick BECAUSE that is what is expected as Death Metal. That is what Death Metal is all about!

"Christian" death metal is the biggest oxymoron around. Death metal by it's very nature is about serious aggression, rebellion and anger. I'm sorry. I do support CCM and some Christian rock but there comes a time when the line has to be drawn. If you think saying the words 'I love Jesus' in screaming, unintelligible growls and roars while the drums are blurring away at 200 beats per minute, then something is seriously wrong with how you view your faith.

Romans 14: 2-3: "One person believes that one may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. The one who eats muse not despise the one who abstains, and the one who abstains must not pass judgement on the one who eats; for god has welcomed them. Who are you to pass judgement on someone else's servant? Before his own master he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the lord is able to make him stand."

Romans 14: 10: "Why then do you judge your brother? Or you, why do you look down on your brothers? For we shall all stand before the judgement seat of God;"

Romans 14:14: "I know and am conviced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; still, it is unclean for someone who thinks it unclean."

I personally do not agree with Death Metal, but I'm not downing someone's faith. Remember, everyone sees things clearly. For the sake of your other brother, please erase the last few lines of your posts. It's not right to judge people for the way they are worshipping christ. If they are sincere about it, and are doing it with all their heart, then they are pleasing the lord.

Likewise, I do not know how the pianist and the lead opera singer up front are pleasing the lord. It feels like a nightclub scene to me. Also, I'm sure theirs more dancing going for the lord then there is in Zombie worship.
