My student Nathan Martin writes about some Christians who have made it big in the secular music world. But it doesn’t matter. They are still bad! So vacuous is their music, he writes, striking two with one blow, they might as well become CCM artists. The pop music scene in general is full of posing and convention at the expense of substance. Read Nathan’s critique and his call for Christians especially to do better. If you know of exceptions, either in the pop or the CCM realm, I’d like to hear of them.
Secular pop is no better than CCM
