This is a keenly relevant issue concerning many parents and youth pastors today
Longwood, FL (Vocus) November 10, 2010
Many Christian adolescents as well as adults compromise their godly values and open their hearts and lives to the devil. They fellowship with him through secular music that espouses evil. Therein lies the danger; teens are unaware when they listen to music representative of Satan’s kingdom that they’re giving him the honor, glory, and worship he’s always desired. Within the pages of Kiss What? Exposing What God and Satan Think About Your Music and Worship ($10.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-876-3; $5.49, eBook, 978-1-61215-0819), a new Xulon Press title from Nick Costello, the author's fresh approach issues an urgent wake-up call to Christian youth everywhere about the dangers of ungodly listening habits. This is not just another book addressing the issue of music and lyrics.
“This is a keenly relevant issue concerning many parents and youth pastors today,” the author says. “It addresses a subject which is perhaps the most powerful influence in a teenager’s life…their music. After a teen reads this book, they will never be able to listen to their ungodly music ever again without knowing it grieves the heart of God and gives the devil the glory and honor only God deserves from them. They'll also learn godly life-living principles and how to become an uncompromising follower and champion worshipper of Jesus."
Prior to his conversion to Christ, Costello spent 25 years in the secular music industry as a successful rock star. His firsthand experience reveals the power music has to capture a teen's attention and its ability to influence young hearts and minds. Once God opened Nick's eyes to the truth about his music, he saw how deeply his ungodly secular music grieved God’s heart. “After wrestling with God about it all, I chose to destroy all my ungodly music. I got my music listening habits right with God, bringing honor and glory to Him” he explains. An excellent teaching tool.
