CONCERNING WORLDLY MUSIC
We cannot be in love with our Savior and relish the lyrics of the world for which He was crucified. If our feet were pierced with His they would not be leading us down the broad path of worldly music. If our hands were nailed together with His we would never use them to labor for anything of the world for which His hands were pierced. The pain He experienced for us, through faith, mortifies within us the sins for which those sufferings atoned. If we were truly crucified together with Him and dead, then all of our desires for worldly music and pleasures would be dead also; we would be new creatures in reality: alive to His holy purposes, will and mind alone.
