Is All Music Evil?

Is music itself evil? I don’t believe the Bible teaches the creative art form we call music is evil, nor does God tell us any musical instrument is evil. What is evil is the fruit an instrument produces in the hands of it’s user. Does God have a favorite style of music? The Bible is […]
