    I do Believe in Energetic Singing is Great! However,young kids
    Do NOT need to waste time about History of Rock & Roll.
    Their lives need to be looking into their Future that lay ahead
    of them & the Will of GOD for their lives. Dancing can be a
    strong Temptation & is a way that Satin tricks young people
    “Oh its Ok to Dance,” Young peoples bodies gets Turned On
    & Temptation in their minds can lead to Sins that can be For-
    given,but there are consequences of those Sins that will effect
    there Minds & Bodies though out their Lives. I am surprised,
    that “Grace” has aloud the “World” to Creep into the University

    I am appalled at what is taking place at Grace U. Why promote ero-sensual music, art, drama and dress in the name of Jesus? Why sacrifice a “sow” on the alter of our hearts as a sweet fragrance to God? Don’t you know the history and meaning of “rock’n roll” as well as jazz?
    My Webster’s Dictionary reads as follows:
    “[first so used (1951) by Alled Freed, Cleveland disc jockey, taken from the song “My Baby Rocks Me with a Steady Roll”: used of rock, roll, rock and roll, etc., with ref. to sexual intercourse, is traditional in blues] a form of popular music that evolved in the 1950’s from rhythm and blues, characterized by the use of electric guitars, a strong rhythm with an accent on the offbeat, and youth-oriented lyrics.”

    A Catholic scholar Dr. Peter Kwasniewski writes;
    “… “rock and roll” and “jazz” were both euphemisms for sexual intercourse, or, more accurately in their historical context, fornication: the rhythm is suggestive of the pelvic thrust. People who dance…to rock music often perform this kind of motion instinctively—…in an explicitly sexual way… There is just no escaping from the sensuality and sexual innuendos intended by the pioneers and protagonists of rock music. … their music is intentionally and recognizably an expression of and an appeal to … Dionysian (drunk) behavior…. The only reason we ourselves may no longer feel the connection is that our entire society has broadly accepted the sexual revolution along with the rock music that heralded it, and therefore both the permissiveness and its music are in the very air we breathe: we have no other cultural consciousness against which to compare the music or the morality.”

    I could go on but will close at this time.

    Christ, praying that God might give you knowledge, discernment, repentance, forgiveness and reformation.
