I have been taught through years of church camps, going to church, talking to preists, and catholic schools, that god is all forgiving if you repent. But regardless, is god really going to condemn us for enjoying music that talks about things he doesn't like? Doesn't that seem a bit harsh? To shut out all things in life that people wrote in a book and said god doesn't allow us to enjoy. That may sound like god bashing but I mean no disrespect to the religion. But I drink, smoke, have premarital sex (with partners of both genders I may add), and listen to heavy metal music every day. Does this mean that I'm going to hell? Is god going to banish me to the depths of Satan because I enjoy the pleasures of what his children have created? If we are his children shouldn't he love us and everything we've created and all the ways we've found to express ourselves, especially in music?
What many people do not understand is that, one does not need to do anything to go to the lake of fire and that because they are already on their way there, which is why Jesus became a human being in order to kin himself to us and be our redeemer.
