    Korn isn't Satanic. I know them, dude. They were born and raised in my town. Home-town heros we call them. They have done a lot for Bakersfield and the community.Yes, Brian Welch is a born-again Christian, that is good. But he turned on the band and written a slanderous book about his old bandmates which is, as I think, unChristian. He should have witnessed to them. He did not but condemn them.

    No offense, but if it doesn't glorify God, then it is Satan in a sense. Just like todays mainstream "entertainment television".

    Slayer is Satanic as they spew Satanic messages--I agree with that opinion.Enya is Satanic because she sings about Irish mythos despite her being a Roman Catholic--I do not agree with that opinion.How many Christian bands are there that, in their cd's, have a couple songs that do not explecitly worship Him but sing songs about other subjects? Are those songs, therefore, Satanic? or is the band then Satanic for digressing from the "main point"?

    Agree with that pretty much...but on that same token if we all were held accountable for our unChristian actions, we'd all be in a lot of trouble. I know that I would. That's where Christ comes in. God is our judge.

    As a Christian soloist I will not sing what does not glorify God.

    Psalm 33:3 - Sing unto Him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.Psalm 40:3 - And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.Lovest ye in Christ Yahshua our Lord and Saviour.

    no.. their songs about drugs and sex, are about Sex.. and Drugs... not about Satan or Satanic activities.This is ridiculous, they are artists.I agree fully with E Nomine.

    I take advil when I have a bad back. I am not in trespass when I do that.Besides, you're assuming something. Christian Bands sing about drug abuse and overdose too. But what are they saying about it? That's the key. The Bible talks about rape, but what does it say about it?Korn is not evil, they are simply people who play music, and write lyrics they feel best express what they wish to. If a person without that talent came up and said the things they were saying, I would think them misled, not satanic.A passage I was just reading;Isaiah 65:5Do not be that smoke. Instead, be Jesus to them. Were the adulterers satanic? No. What did Jesus do? He spent time with them and loved them.They are artists Superjag. They won't eat your children. They aren't even all that screwed up. They're just guys who play music about what they feel.

    What about they feel? And you think I'm playing holier than thou? Your post doesn't even hold or give water.Psalm 33:3 - Sing unto Him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.Psalm 40:3 - And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.Psalm 96:1 - O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.Psalm 98:1 - O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.Psalm 144:9 - I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.Psalm 149:1 - Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.Isaiah 42:10 - Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.You do anything to justify your beliefs...I could care less how my flesh feels. I rather stick with scriptures, on what YHWH and Yahshua feels, not on what man or I feels.

    You are getting out of hand and silly here superjag. I didn't say that I listen to what they say. I didn't even say I listen to Korn. Just the same, I listen to other music which you would probably conclude the same thing about.Can one not praise God with Song, and listen to other music as well?Can one not go on the Internet to discuss the Bible, and to do homework?Listening to other opinions, observing the work of artists, these are not sinful.

    I am actually a huge Korn fan, and I read Brian's book "Save From Myself" a couple times and he wrote the book telling his story and why he turned to god, and he also wrote the book to give his fans hope.
