"The Power of Music"
I've had a disagreement with one of my sons over the years about something and I was wanting your perspective from a theological and or biblical perspective if you would please. My son is 23 years old now but while he was growing up he would listen to very hard core music which I didn't like, so to try and appease me, he would tell me it's Christian music. He brought it up again recently and said he still listens to it from time to time and doesn't see anything wrong with it. I don't know the technical name for this type of music but I call it Screamo music. To me it sounds like Cookie Monster trying to yell a song or it just sounds like horrible screaming or growling and the lyrics are completely unintelligible. In the depths of my soul, something just doesn't feel right about it to me, even if they call it Christian music. I don't see how this brings glory to God in any way. It makes me feel very uneasy whenever I hear it and I feel like my soul repels it but I don't know quite how to explain this in away that my son will understand. Can you tell me if my concerns are warranted and if so, can you give me some info to help me clear this up with him?

Next, thing to do is continue praying for your sons conversion, because UNTIL he has his own interior conversion experience to Jesus Christ, nothing you say will change his mind about the music he listens to. The devil is deeply involved in much of the secular music today - this is how he has been trapping the minds of young people for centuries and centuries - The Holy Bible, Aristotle, Plato and Chinese Sages have been saying this for a long time.
As we have seen, music was initially created for the purpose of Glorifying God up until Satan’s rebellion. What Satan has done with music from that point on is to make it more racy, vulgar, obscene, vile, nasty and profane. I have an hour presentation called "Lucifer, angel of bad music" on my website - www.jesseromero.com.

I also have a book on spiritual warfare for parents - its called "Lord prepare my hands for Battle." I would start praying for my son every night deliverance prayers to break any possible diabolical tie your son may have. I would also have a Dad & Son trip and take him to confession, than maybe grab a pizza after or go watch a movie.
