It’s been a recurring question that gets asked repeatedly in Evangelical circles; should we listen to music that has been produced by false Christian movements. The argument is that even though some of the music that is produced can contain doctrinally sound lyrics, the fact that they are listened to, sung in worship services, or promoted in churches lends credence to the movements that produced them and gives them a tacit approval.

This is particularly true when we speak about cults such as Bethel and Hillsong. These are arguably the two most popular producers of “Christian” worship music in the industry today. While some of the music that is produced sounds okay and is not theologically aberrant, there is no argument that the churches that produced them are theologically aberrant.

Hillsong, as I’ve written about in the past, is a prosperity gospel cult. The theology of this movement is attractive to the carnal-minded individual who desires to seek his own self-interest. In fact, the prosperity gospel movement as a whole is built around the notion of materialism and personal gain to satisfy our carnal greed.

This is much the same with Bethel Music, whom I’ve also written about in the past, that may occasionally produce a song that is not theologically aberrant, but as a movement as a whole, is antichrist.

Al Mohler, president of Southern Seminary weighs in on this question as well, and while I’ve had my disagreements with Mohler, unsurprisingly, I found myself in almost fully aligned with his assessment.
