    I love metal, but don't get along with the lyrics anymore since finding Christ. I would love to find some metal that has good positive Christian lyrics/values.

    Underoath and Norma Jean come off the top of my head.
    I know there are a few bands that are popular in the secular, and few people realize they are christian, so they must be good metal haha

    i like Norma Jean alot

    COD was pushed as christian through the christian market. His music reflect the pain he went through as a result of what what they wanted him to do vs what he wanted to do musically. Then you got the guy from Klank who was part of COD. I talked to him years ago before his concert and it was obvious to me that he was battling issues and was on the dark side of life without being in the occult.

    If you are looking for a postive message neither band is the right thing to do. They would be aking to listening to NIN.

    I don't know who is out there for christian metal anymore. I have alot of old stuff. Only new stuff I have is Saviour Machine.

    I haven't heard any Christian metal that's anything like Slipknot. Maybe you should check out some for yourself. We aren't talking about "death metal", because that would be any oxymoron. You can have heavy music and lyrics that actually have a positive message and have a band that plays heavy music that glorifies Christ.

    I think its more of a thought to discredit the people. Honestly its sorta odd because its assuming they are not a Christian or whatever because of their style of music. Now, I would question if their actions were not consistent with a Christian but nothing wrong with different style of music although YES I would draw the line with death metal.

    Marketing hype or not, I dont care so long as it has a good message.

    If you type in " list of christian metal bands" in wiki you will get a full list. That's the best way to find out. As far as bands actually being christian, whose to really know? You don't know them personally. You can try to listen to music which doesn't touch topics of god or relgion so it's neutral. Just music with positive messages, and music that doesn't use profanity.

    I'm not a christian music fan, per se, but most of the metal that I listen to has good postive uplifting lyrics(at least to me). Tool, Samael, those sort. Some of them, though, like tool, have directly anti-christian lyrics, while still invoking a good, moral posture. Are you looking specifically for religious christian metal, or just metal that has a positive vibe?

    The drummer from Tool says that a demon helps him drum. Someone looking for christian music probably wouldn't wanna be listening to them. lol.

    What about Korn and Jonathon Davis? He is pretty positive right?

    On a serious note though the old guitar player Monkey got saved a few years ago and walked away from Korn. I heard him on a christian talk show and was stunned when I heard that. Has a book he wrote called How I saved me from myself. Pretty interesting read.

    No, joking about Korn, but serious about the guitar players new found life in Christ. I used to be a Korn fan "pre-Jesus" so I was stunned to hear about his transformation.


    BTW "pre-Jesus" means before I started living for Christ and with Him as part of my daily life.

    Well korn uses a lot of profanity as well as a lot of suggestive lyrics. As far as monkey..I'm not down with the whole "save" thing because jesus came as a chance for us all to be saved. Not just saved if we believe or except him. We have to follow him and do the will of his father. He said in matthew "he that endures to the end is the one that is saved" After folllowing him continually we will be judged. Accepting jesus as our savior is a BIG first step. Good for monkey that he turned away from all the drugs and bad lifestyle that went along with being a rock star but it's a constant battle to stay on a straight path. The battle is not over just because he accepts christ. Just like the rest of us, it's always a struggle.

    Apparantly, I missed 2 commas, that I just edited, that caused some confusion. I am very much joking about Korn being a Christian band.

    So do you mean you aren't "saved" until you reach "the end" even though
    Version: KJV

    Romans 10:9

    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. You can be down with it or not, but that's what the word says.

    Sure, you need to make different choices with your life and pursue the will of God, but you are still saved when you accept Christ as your savior and ask him into your heart. And yes it is a struggle everyday for everyone trying to live righteously.

    Ohh, I'm down with the word. I know very much what it says. But believing in christ is the first step to salvation. For example, Do you believe that one can believe in christ, turn around and say ok " I believe in christ now, I'm saved so I can do whatever I want"? One could continue to live a life of sin and still be favorable in god's eyes?

    I'll let the scriptures do the talking..

    James 2:17 "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone" That scripture shows that even if you have faith it is dead if you don't have works or make effort to do the will of god.

    John 3:17- "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him "might" be SAVED." Notice the word MIGHT
