Pastor, I am a Christian myself... but your sermon here is simply lunacy.

I have a question for you... assume I were to pick up my violin and play the first 7 notes of the Christian hymn "This Is My Father's World." Would that be holy or demonic? Holy....... BINGO!

Oh no...... wait. Those exact seven notes are also the first seven notes of one of Howard Shore's main themes for "The Lord of the Rings" scores.

So, have we a musical melody that is simultaneously holy and Christian AND demonic and Satanic? No. It is just music... arrangements of sound waves to form a delightful tune. In other words, it is neutral.

Sorry, but your argument holds about as much believability as a drunk fool collapsed on the sidewalk and foaming at the mouth while condemning everyone to hell on their way to a Mozart concert.
