rock music in stores

I have asked, at fast food places, for them to turn the radio down (or off). Some comply, and some don't, but it doesn't hurt to ask. After all, I am paying them, and I want it my way! (Of course, I could go somewhere else too!)

i believe all that about rock music, i know it can control people's moods, but it seems that comforting and soft music would relax the customer more, and they would linger longer, and perhaps buy more.


Same here. My wife and I love Outback and eat there quite often. I have no qualms about asking the manager to turn down the music so we can have a reasonable conversation. We're not there to listen to the music. We're there to enjoy a wonderful steak. I have never had them not turn down the music. Especially once I get the manager involved.

There was a Ponderosa around here that used to play K-Love all the time. They were told they couldn't play Christian music, but they still did. Corporate actually backed them on it, too.

asysin2leads--that is amazing, doesn't seem to happen around here, especially at the stores! I understand that they used to teach music in marketing, and the effect it can have on customers. It seems that a type of music the excites one to action (usually evil) such as hard rock, would be contrary to their sales philosophy.

I wish stores would play rock music. Most of what they play is that boring, unoffensive pop muzic (muzic= boring fluff that they claim is music).


Why in the world, please tell me, if your a Christian, why would you want to listen to ungodly rock music/

I can't think of a place we go that plays music, except at church, and of course that is godly music singing hymns of praise to our Lord.

Yet I just remembered after leaving the VA Clinic today I stopped at Waffle House, while there the juke box came on. I paid no attention to it, but I did glance around to see who played it. No one was near it, I think they have it set to play a song every so often hoping to incited someone into putting money in and playing some songs.

In the last several years the only place I've noticed a juke box is at Waffle houses.

Years ago I loved country music, yet I refuse to listen to it, I'm going to try as best I can to keep and and all corrupt communications out of my ears.

1Co 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

And remember this verse John posted and try to keep my mind in the right place.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

It is one thing to not like rock music, but saying things like this just makes you lose all credibility.


Not really, the credibility issue would be with the Christians that loves and listens to rock music.

Very few places I go to play music anymore. The ones who do typically have a local readio station playing and it's usually so low you can't really hear it anyway.

One family owned restaurant in a nearby little city plays Christian music in their business but we don't get that way much anymore.

It is not my goal, nor desire to gain credibility. If you choose to listen to rock music, you are playing into the hands of the world and the devil. I can't prove it to your satisfaction, so I suppose these words will go unheeded, but our lives will prove it within us. It is not a matter of what kind of music I like, but what I should listen to.

Amen!


Marty, I confess, I use to love country music, haven't listened to it in many years, perhaps if I listened to it now I would again love it, yet I refuse to listen to the junk, God mocking, sin glorying music.

We surely can control what goes in our mind, and we should.

I think, at times, that I need blinders such as they use on horses and mules when hitched up as a team when plowing and such.


I know what you mean. There is so much out there I don't want to see, for biblical reasons.

Well, it is coming up to the time when the stores wwhich normally play music will all be playing similar Christmas songs and carols. There will be bands and choirs ouyside the stores and inside similar music played over the PA. The stores are already filled with toys and boxes of chocolate, which they say is ½ price. The music won't be long in coming.

That's true. I was in a store last week where I had seen some Thanksgiving Day items but they have already given way to shelves of Christmas stuff!!!

It's not even Halloween (not that I really care) yet, and Thanksgiving Day is still about four weeks away, but already they are pushing Christmas stuff.

Yes, they will have the Christmas songs going, trying their best to put everyone in the mood to buy, buy, and buy, and many will fall for it spending all of their money, many maxing out every credit card they have making their self slaves to the credit card companies.

Yes, the stores have a mixed up view of what Christmas is really about.

Yet it is a great time to witness for Jesus, during Christmas season there be many opportunism, if only we will make use of them.

During the Christmas shopping season I've noticed lots of stores play rock and pop Christian music. It's not so often one hears the meaningful Christmas songs, but most often the more rocking, worldly songs.

Right, music that you would not hear in a Jesus loving Church.

That's right! "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and "Grandma God Run Over By a Reindeer" are not Christ honouring or edifying.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.

      Why is it here in 2022 that truth is all of a sudden arrogance ?
