Music has a way of reaching deep within our souls and touching our hearts. There’s no denying the deep emotional impact music has on the majority of the population.
If music has such a deep, and lasting, impact on us, shouldn’t we more carefully scrutinize what we open ourselves up to? Maybe we need to rethink some of our choices in “entertainment.”
Music’s Deep Impact on Listeners
Our culture has brainwashed us into believing that music is harmless entertainment. Furthermore, because some religious zealots have made lame attempts at articulating concerns about our kids’ music in the past, those same zealots have been effectively discredited as loony tunes. They may be zealous and lame, but, from my experience—and multiple studies—those lame zealots are also right!
Man has always justified, and grossly overlooked the negative effects of music on behavior, and spiritual and emotional health. Call me a lame zealot if you must, but I’m in the same category as Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato—three other lame zealots who understood music’s power in their time, as I do today.
