Ya know, I thought it prudent to see if we could find any statues that resembled The Jimmy that we could all bow down to. Here's what I was able to find (of course, we could make our own)...

It's very telling the state of what is considered christendom when so many that say they are Christians.... are taping their toes to and enjoying worldly music

It's too bad to see so many being friends with the world... as though there not a lot of really good Christian music out there they could be listening to instead rather than putting the darkness of this world into their minds, and emotions. SMH View attachment 257021

James 4:4
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
My first thought is who are you? You do understand your just a Christian. Yes yes I know some believe they are called to be GODS Police force and judge and jury. That is no calling. Your no prophet you no Apostle.. yeah your just some person we don't know. You do not speak for GOD. See the 12 the 120 would have asked you "who are you? Who knows you? How long have you walked in what you preach?" Then all would go pray for a very long time. YES that really did happen.

Oh that is not what James 4 was saying. The "friendship of the world" is a desire for a relationship with those who reject God and His word. Did you even look this up study it? When it comes to allegiance there can be no gray areal in a believers life. Pfft whosoever in the Greek is emphatic. It indicates a deliberate choice to give allegiance to the world rather then to God. Demas is an illustration of one who chose to desert the cause of Christ because of love for the world 2 tim 4:10. Those who choose the world constitute themselves enemies of GOD. Shall I go on?

I was saved for years and still listened to Acid Rock.. Christ never ever condemned me judge said a word. I still remember sitting at work and .. it just vanished.. I just didn't want to any more never have. But HE did it.. not some random person on the internet. Just like me :) ROCK ON! Oops too soon?

Haha..I only came here to post a video.. you will see it

:) someone said this "People that pick on those listening to music styles they don't approve of... ask them if their bible came with a thumb drive containing a download from Heaven so we can all know exactly what style music the Lord be tappin His toe to. "

Thanks Jimmy

Those that have a close relationship with the Lord based on what the Lord says in His Word... know.
Yeh but I thought God reveals Himself through creation. Secular music, is still an act of creation.
Plus whatever is true, lovely, admirable( Jimi Hendrix was phenomenal on that guitar, I cannot not admire his style and talent) and Beethoven, and Prince was excellent. I think on those things. Its a gift from God, I think how well they play, seemingly without even trying...

If you are listening to secular music... you be listening to evil music.

You know music that satan enjoys that he's taping his toe to along with you.
Why would he be taping his toe? Did he injure it? Or is he planning to dance ballet? And what does it mean "to along with you"?

Maybe I don't want to know....

Are YOU a whosoever???

Those listening to secular music are friends of the world and are walking in darkness.

It's odd that those claiming to be Christians object to music that glorifies the Lord and instead chooses music that glorifies the devil Weird!

Really? Do you fail to understand that God's Word is God speaking to mankind and without it all man would know if that some "higher power" created this world we live in.

2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:


Notice the part about "instruction in righteousness"???

Want to be in right standing with the Lord? Knowing how to do that is found in God's Word.



Why would he be taping his toe? Did he injure it? Or is he planning to dance ballet? And what does it mean "to along with you"?

Maybe I don't want to know....
It means satan enjoys evil music... and those listening to it are devil friendly as in they have no problem with satanic thought and the presence of demons in their life.

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.


2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?


Ephesians 5:11
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.

Exactly. I had the same thought about the bands I liked when I was dealing with this back in the 80s.

I still like some secular. But since Jesus Christ came into my life I also enjoy Christian music too. I can identify with what some of them are saying.

Unfortunately for me, I found few Christian bands that write the sort of music I like (80s wave, post-punk). There are a few, but only a few (Declaration and Mad at the World are the only ones I found to date).

Well... Jesus doesn't appreciate music that was created as an offering to the devil which is what secular music is.

@JimmyTheLock
I agree with you about what you said about 2 Timothy.
Indeed one way He speaks to us is the through Word of God.

Some secular stuff invites temptation I agree. Especially for the weaker amongst us. But so does certain food if I’m on a diet. And perhaps women if I was a man.

I agree if it hurts us don’t go near it. Or it we can’t avoid if we ask for help and He will show us a way out.

Good topic.😊

But it's not a topic per se, it's a cudgel that The Jimmy is waving at anyone who disagrees with him.

Yes, and then some things we do... can be a stumbling block to others and cause them to fall.

Those claiming to be Christians who listen to secular music never think about that.

And, if secular music is doing that to someone I know, I won't play it. But, if I believe their walk is secure, I'll let God deal with them on that.

Mean while you are still violating God's Word by listening to secular music

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

While thinking, you're cameo suggests nothing Godly or holy but rather gives weird vibes, unless it holds a Divine meaning no one is aware of.

I did upload some images of statues that might make good idols for the jimmy-god.
