Culture Clash – Healthy Substitutions

24 Aug

There is a lot of stuff out there to get you down. Music really has a lot to do with culture, attitudes and what we think about. If you listen to popular music or see the music videos, it is very easy to get depressed or discouraged. Why not make more uplifting and hopeful choices?

Here are some great substitutions that you can make of Christian music for secular. I’ve chosen thematic substitutions, rather than stylistic, to perhaps make a point.

In place of pop icon Katy Perry’s egotistic song Roar, substitute Newsboys’ song God’s Not Dead.

For Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger, substitute a more upbeat song by the same name. Mandisa and her song Stronger has a very positive vibe (and no break-ups in her song).

And finally, instead of Miley Cyrus’ song We Can’t Stop, which is very shocking to Christian sensibilities, check out TobyMac’s Unstoppable.

Keep your mind and your spirit, and let your light shine!

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:16
