I was first introduced to country music while working in Billings, Montana for half a year in 1980, the spiritually darkest place I’ve ever lived. Almost everyone ate, drank and breathed country music. Now, it has spread like wildfire.

I consider country music to be one of the most significant destructive forces in America. We all know rock ‘n roll has its bad side, but country is far more deceptive. The same artist that sings hymns will sing about drunkeness and sexual immorality. And then they’ll be loudly pro-America and kill them all in Iraq: “God bless America.”

This is Satan at his best. Country music is a blight.

So I was surprised to hear this song this morning, while surfing the local radio channels.

Isn’t this how it should be? Why is this the exception and not the rule? Why do people listen to the garbage that is mostly country music? Most is so slick and deceptively black.

Forever & Ever Amen
Randy Travis

I’m gonna love you forever, forever and ever amen
As long as old men sit and talk about the weather
As long as old women sit and talk about old men
If you wonder how long I’ll be faithful
I’ll be happy to tell you again
I’m gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever amen

They say time takes it’s toll on a body
Makes the young girl’s brown hair turn grey
But honey, I don’t care, I aint in love with your hair
And if it all fell out well I’d love you anyway

They say time can play tricks on a memory
Make people forget things they knew
But it’s easy to see it’s happening to me
I’ve already forgotten every woman but you
— oh baby
