I have doubts about two subjects:
I’ve read that books like “The secret” are anti-catholics since they put the man above the supreme Father, so I would like to know if self-helping books like ones written by Og Mandino, Dale Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peale are not recommended. They mention Jesus, but I know they are all protestants, is there any problem reading books written by protestants, since the subject is not religious? for example, the Adventists have good manuals about good habits of eating, etc.
My second doubt concerns music.
Nowadays we have lots of styles, singers, groups, etc…although some we easily realize they claim for being avoided, others are hard to suspect they are against the Catholic faith.
I would like to know what music styles our Catholic mates from this board recommend to enjoy and keep free from sins.
My favorite music style is the Classical one, anyways I’ve heard that the romantic songs must be avoided.
Thanks in advance.
In Corde Jesu, semper,
