So I know I've made some really anti-Christian threads in the past, and I've come out on several occasions and said that I lean towards the side of atheism. However, that's really only been in the last year, to maybe two years. I spent most of my life in a Christian home, and for a long time actually lead worship in my church and youth group(s). Actually went to Bible college and did a semester as an associate youth pastor. Anyways, I know how important worship music is to a lot of CHristians, and I also - as somebody who had to play it for weeks and weeks on end - understand how difficult it is to find GOOD Christian music out there. And even though I don't really think I believe in God at this stage in my life, I respect the good Christians out there that still connect to what they perceive is god in a deep and meaningful way, often through music. So I thought I'd put together some of my favorite Christian music that doesn't suck. I really don't like traditional worship - Chris Tomlin being the king of it - because it's super repetitive and boring. Mostly uninspired. Kind of a disgrace to music in general. Hopefully this helps somebody, or at the very least allows a CHristian looking for better music the opportunity to branch out. Most of the following music is pretty chill, acoustic and was performed in a house church I was a part of; a setting with 10-12 people playing guitars, percussion instruments, harmonicas, etc. in a circle, like a bunch of hippies. Still the best setting for worship that I've ever experienced. Really not a fan of churches. You might be thrown off, because they're not songs that are straight up like "I love Jesus, Jesus is awesome, he's my everything, blah blah blah." Many of them will make you listen to the words, and make you think. ALl the songs I'll list I still love today, regardless of my religious thoughts. Spoiler This is a song called "Dirty and Left Out" by The Almost. It really hits on the down-and-out feeling a lot of us feel, and how "dirty" we can get over time. It's not pretty, and his voice isn't classicaly trained or anythign; just raw emotion. "I've been dirtier than you wanna know. I've left earlier, than you'll ever know."

[YOUTUBE]zv8iFb-RT3k[/YOUTUBE] Spoiler This song is just absolutely beautiful. Please give it a listen. A real LISTEN.

If you haven't listened to his album "Ghosts Upon the Earth" and you like Christian music...or realy just music in general, please check it out. He's one of those guys going out there trying to make good music, combating all the frustrating and bad things the church has/is doing. So good. Here's a sample: [YOUTUBE]IyIv2a3i_hE[/YOUTUBE] So uh, I guess...if anybody at all likes this stuff, and wants to hear more Christian music that doesn't completely suck, let me know.
