Da capo concept
We live in times when Christians compromise a lot. There appears to be neglect for the subject of Christian Standards and thus the practical principles that ought to distinguish the Christian life from that of the world (Crews, 2002).
Music is one area that has evidently suffered the consequences of the creeping compromise in Christian circles. What we call Gospel Music is so entrenched in worldly practices that it is almost impossible to draw a line of distinction. There is a trend of music branded as Christian but is devoid of Biblical Standards. Aspects of truthfulness, honorableness, righteousness, purity, beauty, and virtue have all been ‘thrown out of the window.’ Much focus is on mere entertainment and self-glorification.
NAE seeks to make a difference in this regard by promoting high-quality Adventist Music that fits Biblical standards and free from the worldly influence. Therefore, in the upcoming music concert/dinner, we shall be sharing this message and will also showcase our attempt to achieve good music.
