Music wields universal influence over families, churches, and cultures around the world.

And no wonder. For God, Himself is musical by nature. If God is the original author of musical sound then what are the basic principles which govern His self-expression? Can godly music be defined in simple terms? Is it true that there are measurable standards and methods of music evaluation beyond Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16? Moses, David and Isaiah answer in unison with a resounding “Yes!” If you are determined to glorify God in this area and if you mourn to see the confusion in which churches have found themselves today if you have heard the first warnings of conscience on this watershed issue and need the logical thought process by which to cement and present a Biblical music standard, be encouraged.

In a message long overdue for the soldiers of Christ, Don Staddon approaches the field of music in layman’s terms! It is accompanied by an excellent step-by-step slide series that offers clarity and balance for anyone whose heart’s desire is to walk in victory over the personal preference battle and discover with joy all that the Creator says about Himself and the music which He would prefer.

  1. It is obvious that you worked through this issue asking God for wisdom, believing that His best is best, and sincerely wanting His best!
    I do appreciate your clarity and balance. Articulating with our mouth what we know to be true in our spirit takes a deep love for God and others both at the same time. I still remember when you gave this message in Nashville where so much of the worldly music styles are popularized. I pray the Lord send this message to families around the world who know in their spirit that music cannot be amoral and are looking for the logic, thoughts and words to express that to the ones they love.
    “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19).
