hi there. i am new here and am going to be asking a lot of questions. this is probably the most negative i will ask,
but i listen to heavy metal of almost all types. is that bad?
some of the metal i listen to has other religions’ themes, but i am not tempted to worship satan, odin, etc. i have never wanted to drink, do drugs, watch porn or do anything that will make me self destruct or hurt others… all that. it seems that every page i have read about people listen to metal is saying that it is a problem to listen to metal when i am being destructive.
is there anything wrong with it? i don’t feel like hurting anyone or myself. sometimes listening to non-catholic metal reminds me how simple (not so demanding and rediculous as other false gods??) and awesome jesus is. i feel like satanic death metal makes satan seem super weak and like a weird dude if that makes sense? he just isn’t someone i’d waste my time worshipping. his rules don’t make sense and why does he have to destroy everything to make himself look great??? pathetic.
i do listen to christian metal, but some bands are lacking. there are a couple christian (un)black metal bands i listen to (they are undergound).
i feel like i’m just listening for the music and not the lyrics is what i’m trying to say.
i just want to make sure i’m not a bad catholic because it’s best to get advice rather than going by your own thing.
