Just wanted to share here what I posted on Facebook:
"MUSICIANS | I have to clarify something, Music is NOT a gift! Music is just a medium by which your gift is manifested through! The gift is the way you think! If you didn't ever play an instrument again, you could be just as successful using your God given gift and ability to think uniquely and be just as successful in other areas. MUSIC IS ONLY ONE AREA! We (musicians) are human beings just like everybody else and have to apply the same discipline towards getting good on an instrument, towards other areas in life. What's the point of praising and worshiping somebody just because they can play? And the ones that like that and expect that got the devil in em! This is what lifts musicians up in Pride because the people are blowing their heads up and the musicians start believing it as if they are all that! This is what feeds their esteem but this is a security issue though. When the musician is seeking approval by men and acceptance by the world, they live off of the praise of men. But for a secure musician who gets their validation and approval from God, they could care less what people think. In addition, a musician that's secure in God doesn't play for people's approval or validation either.
And think about this! These insecure artists are the main ones pushed to the forefront that are promoted the most as they spew their evil for the next generation to adapt their issues and twisted philosophies. What better way to indoctrinate people and turn them against God and biblical principles but through the music people listen to? What better way for people to worship false gods and idols but by channeling what's in the hearts of these "artists" who they post on their walls and wear the t-shirts of?
People are getting their identity from "artists" who are confused about their very identity!"
