Re: Wedding Music?


Unfortunately these days I listen to the lyrics first. It is my Biblical duty to protect my children from things of the world. So, when you open up a question on whether about to use a song or not, my immediate response is, to listen forto the lyrics.

At Bible Camp this past June, one of the speakers spoke on the subject of sharing our Bible beliefs as saved Christians with the world and worldly.  He said something that has really stuck with me, and actually made me think of the Anabaptist plight during the Reformation.  He said we should never feel afraid to share the Truth's that are in the Bible with anyone.  Those early Christian martyrs, certainly weren't afraid to share, even thought they faced death, for they knew they would live eternally with Christ. 

I am guessing I know that it is not always wise to do so, that the Eicher and Schwartz children have never been to an "English" wedding, while they have had contacts with what I will call regular worldly stuff, that you wedding is going to be a completely new experience for them, my thoughts on the song, came out of a courtesy of who a good portion of your guesses will be.  

So about this song, I looked up the lyrics to see them written, and my answer would definately be no, the song is not appropriate for children. It is nothing to take offense with, it is just an opinion, based of Bible teachings. 

I will say that I am especially tuned into this sort of thing, after being a Momma for over 20 years, it is just part of the Momma radar, I really think it is a good thing, it just isn't what the world expects.  And yes, I and my husband and older daughter are those people who turn magazine covers backwards in checkout stands.

To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:5
