Okay... maybe this will offend someone, so forgive me please... I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about these articles.

AV1611 "Christian" Music
CCM magazine exposed
I think they all make very valid points and agree that, as Christians, we ought to be completely separate from the world... I'm trying to understand how CCM could fit into that idea, but I just don't see it.
Personally, because of studies we've done, sermons we've heard, and Scripture we've read, we've come to the conclusion that CCM is not Christ-honoring due to its ambiguity in lyrics and similarity in sound to the rock of the world (among other reasons).
Maybe it's "no big deal" to some, but I really believe that the music to which we listen sets the tone in our homes. Again, I'm not trying to offend anyone, but am honestly trying to understand the thinking behind allowing this music into our lives/family's lives.
