    Ha! I've played Christian contemporary from the '70s to my class (I was being funny), and half of them walked out (they were being funny too - I think ).

    CCM would make me walk out. Stephen Wiley is cool though. And if they want to play Stryper, I will definitely stick around.

    If you want to hear some awesome Christian music, go on youtube and type xian psych. I think it's the best CCM but it's extremely rare, good artists are being discovered from 60s and 70s every month or so.

    Here's a note about some music I've heard ; two rappers in conversation , one an Israeli Jew and the other Palestinian . Each voice is strong and logical and respectful . They performed this at an international peace festival and in the context of a drum circle in the forest . Jesus would blush witnessing coherence .

    Christian contemporary began very diverse. I remember they had bluegrass groups, jazz groups, hard rock, soft rock, folk, and they all were being played together. I suppose that kind of thing is still around today, but what is being promoted and marketed today now is so generic, it's boring. At least to me.

    Boring to me also. It is like secular pop with different words. If I want "praise" music then I want to sing traditional church hymns set to their original music, not popped up. If I want music for my own listening pleasure, it is classical (especially opera) and hard driving music like Stryper. Secular non-classical I will delve into some, Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Dylan, even Neil Young and Tom Petty among others. But in the CCM realm I find littlle worth my listening time.

    I think the point must be made that modern 'Praise' music is meant to be sing by a congregation not listened to for entertainment. Traditional church hymns are fine but please remember the fuss people made when Isaac Watts wrote his hymns: "Bringing theatre into the church"

    Music has always been a touchy subject in churches, hasn't it? As Alexander Pope said, "As some to church repair, not for the doctrine, but the music there.” A friend just returned from Australia. He said many people go to the Hillsong church because, as he said, it's the best free rock concert in the city.

    Then standard of music is very high and contemporary. Why shouldn't people go?

    True. I think excellence and spirituality should be the driving force behind any church activity.

    Yes, 'religious' people are interested in heaven. Whatever their traditional concepts are, they're more interesting than music or science etc. Jesus was always clarifying. The committees made the KJV easier to understand and Lutheran hymns were made easier to sing.

    Yes but not just interested in heaven. Some of us are interested in science, politics, music, art, literature, charity etc. Please do not judge by a blanket statement. Most of my friends also have a wide range of interests so I don't quite know who you are referring to unless a caricature in the media

    I didn't say that.

    I'm not sure what "they're more interesting than music or science" means. Was that a typo?

    Their concepts from their tradition are more interesting, captivating and worthwhile than concepts in music or science, no?
