Recently I went to Christian Rock Concert with my friends. I am not a christian. All the audiances seemed to be enjoying their music, but at the same time they cheered and screamed as the band mentions about their god.
I wonder, they were there because they like the band's music, or they were there because this is one of the way to worship their god?
what do you think? i want to here your opinion.

Christian Rock and worship music combine elements of worship with entertainment. This is nothing new. Hundreds of years ago Martin Luther, who sparked the Protestant Reformation in Europe, wrote a famous hymn called " A mighty fortress is our God " to a melody played in taverns.

So Christian Rock music is appealing to Christians who enjoy Rock music. ..........Michael......................
