Violent Music

Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked. Proverbs 10:6

Every generation experiences its share of increasing “violence” in the arts and entertainment world. Take music for example. The generation before me listened to Elvis Presley and their parents thought it was bad and led to no good. Our parents certainly didn’t understand rock and roll of the 70s and 80s. I’m still trying to wrap my head around punk rock. We shake our heads at this generation’s music. You hear a lot of it on a warm sunny day when car tops are down and the music is blaring. Rap music, Gangsta rap. There are others. There’s a lot of hatred in those lyrics. Lots of words the evoke violence towards authorities, women, and the others.

As I mentioned, the music is getting more violent as the years progress. Pray for this generation of kids. They have many difficult battles to face.
