We have been studying the principles of music.  How and why do we choose the music we play and listen to?  Frank Garlock tells us the The Goal of Music, that music is a language authored by the LORD himself.

Many believe that music is amoral.
Neil Postman says "To maintain that music is amoral is stupidity, plain and simple."

Allan Bloom  in his book Closing the American Mind says, "It maybe that society's greatest madness seems normal to itself." 
Isaiah 5:20-21 says "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!"

God is musical.  Music is a part of God's nature.  Exodus 15:2 says "The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation."
