Casting Crowns has long been heralded as one of the few modern worship groups that hadn’t been completely given over to the culture. Unlike the vast majority of Contemporary Christian Music, Casting Crowns’ lyrics, for the most part, at least weren’t blasphemous. Bad theology isn’t the only form of compromise modern worship bands can partake in, however. Some compromise by giving tacit approval to those who practice and preach unbiblical things.

Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:32

Casting Crowns is set to begin touring in November with the bands of two of the most notorious false churches in the world today — Hillsong and Elevation. Both of these churches (to be accurate, they are not churches) are built upon the foundation of the false prosperity gospel. Their bands exist for the sole purpose of propagandizing the organizations they represent. Their music consists of shallow lyrics that mimic the preaching of their respective leaders — Brian Houston and Steven Furtick. Simply put, they are cults — and they are dangerous.

I can hear the arguments now. Just because they’re traveling together and singing together doesn’t mean they endorse each other (in a high-pitched, mocking voice). Actually, yes, it does. Unless you’re going to rebuke them or speak out against them, you’re tacitly endorsing them. You share a stage with them, sing with them, worship with them — you’re according with Belial, and the Bible warns against that.

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols?

2 Corinthians 6:14-16

To be honest, I personally have no taste for modern Christian music — including that which appears to be theologically sound. But history has proven itself over and over again that the fame and notoriety that comes with the enterprise only sets these artists up for compromise. Money talks and culture walks. It’s happened time and time again. From Lauren Daigle compromising on homosexuality to holding hands with Catholics — the entire scene is virtually devoid of the gospel.
