Furthermore, Romans 10:17 also talks about secular music, it reads “So then, faith cometh by hearing…” This scripture is very simple and clear. Faith comes by hearing. Simple! Nothing more, nothing less! Another word for ‘faith’ is ‘believe’. So in other words, “Believe comes by hearing”. Also another perfect word for the word ‘hearing’ is ‘listening’. Now, what do we do with Hip-hop & R&B music? – We listen to them. All audio materials, whether purchased or downloaded free, end up in our ears for listening. We have no other immediate use for them other than listening to them over and over again. The full scripture at Romans 10:17 reads “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” This scripture brings up a very thoughtful question: If faith comes by hearing the Word of God, then what comes by hearing the words/songs of the world?
