"There are some people God has called to evangelism, and theyre doing a wonderful job, having results. Thats great. ... God wanted us to do something else. So we got into the area of challenging people, and our ministry basically happens offstage one-on-one when we talk with people. Its very subtle, but Gods doing a work! Its entertainment, its fun, its a concert--its all those things--but at a subtle, deeper level, it touches peoples hearts" (TERRY TAYLOR OF THE DANIEL AMOS BAND, cited by Dan and Steve Peters, What about Christian Rock, p. 109).
"I love to hear the music playing slow or fast ... Dont stop, dont stop the music, play it in your own way. . . . I hear dissenting voices quick to disagree. But Im on a music mission; they dont bother me. Ill sing those songs that set me free. Cause kids want to rock" (ED DEGARMO AND DANA KEY, "Dont Stop the Music ," Streetlight, Benson Publications, 1986, p. 24). "You now have songs about pain and death and divorce and sex and relationships and everything that every one of us goes through, whereas at one time contemporary Christian music only talked about the death and resurrection of Christ. Were much more in touch with ourselves and our neighbors, which is the whole idea behind Christ in the first place" (MELISSA HELM OF MYRRH RECORDS, Music Line magazine, June 1986, p. 4).
