Repetitious Contemporary Christian Music

By Pastor Bruce K. Oyen, First Baptist Church, Spearfish, SD

I was listening to a Christian radio station recently when it was playing a song. Here’s what came to mind by time it got to the end:

Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat………..That is what a lot of contemporary Christian music does. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. It doesn’t take much talent to say the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. I’m tired of it. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat…………

Old-fashioned sounding Christian might be, well, old-fashioned sounding, but at least it took some talent, or takes some talent, to write the words and music.
