Song Lyrics  . . .

Lyrics – images from pixabay.com

. . . entertainment, casual banter and typical behavior reveals a society’s or culture’s morality, sense of justice and respect for fellow citizens – or lack of respect. Glorifying, encouraging or promoting hate, abuse of others or a lack of respect for authority erodes the peace and tranquility of a society.

Psalm 105:2 ESV

Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!


SONG: Chris Tomlin – Lord I Need You

The Written Word . . .

Books – images from pixabay.com

Mine Kumpf (My Fight) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mein_Kampf by Adolph Hitler, The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and the Holy Bible are three of the most influential books.  Of course I refer to the blessings derived from GOD’s word as the main message of this blog.

2 Timothy 3:16 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

Hebrews 4:12 ESV

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Music . . .

Musical Score – images from pixabay.com

Music and songs can stir us in our hearts and minds: Taps at funerals, The Star Spangled Banner, Classical music, Christian Hymns and a myriad of popular songs and music – good, bad and meaningless.

Ephesians 5:19 ESV

Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,


Amazing Grace

Psalm 126:2 ESV

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”

Visual Arts, Dance, Theater and Cinema ..

Theater – images from pixabay.com

The grand spectacles Gone with the Wind, The Ten Commandments  and the more recent The Passion of the Christ the artistic license for drama not withstanding, are moving nevertheless. Strange visual effects as used in the latter part of 2001 a Space Odyssey ,  harsh language and explicit sex are all tools used to attract and move the audiences. This art form can be used to teach as well as fill our hours with empty eye candy. Museums filled with paintings, statues and oddities can give historical and social clues about the time in which they were made. Dance can offer folk traditions as well as modern expression.

Psalm 149:3 ESV

Let them praise his name with dancing, making melody to him with tambourine and lyre!

Humor at the expense of others is a misuse of art forms (at least in my opinion).
