I'm a christian who listens to metal and rock music, am I evil?
I'm a 24 year old female. I've been listening to Rock and roll since the age of 11. Back then I didn't have a cd player but I'd listen to radio stations that played rock. And when I was 19 I got my first group of heavy metal albums. Metallica, iron maiden, judas pries, ac dc, slipknot and children of bodem. I liked all those bands instantly and made friends with people who are into metal, I've been to a few live gigs at metal/goth clubs. Since then I've started listening to heavier metal like death metal, melodic black,thrash,progressive death... Actually all the genres. All the metalheads I know are atheist or neo-pagan or satanists. The thing is I don't dress like a metalhead, look or act like one. Infact most people are shocked when they hear what music I'm into. To the religious part, I call myself a christian because I believe in jesus christ, believe he died for all our sins and that he is The son of God, I read my bible once a day, I go to church twice a month, I pray once a day. I'm not a thief,murderer, I'm not on drugs,or anything I would deem very sinful. I am a sinner but I'd say my sins are everyday things. Nothing extreme. I don't even swear! I have a friend who's a christian and he judges me everyday because I listen to metal, he basically tells me that I'll burn in h***, and that I'm worshipping the devil and that I'm living in "darkness". This really hurts me because I care about him,and he insults me as a person because of the music I listen to. We've ended our friendship many times over this topic but end up friends again. He insults me, comments on my facebook page about how I'm falling into darkness whenever I upload a video by metallica for example. He even said that led zeppelin are satan worshipers and he doesn't understand why I'd even think of listening to them. He makes me feel terrible! He makes me feel like I'm worshiping the devil just because I listen to music deemed "evil" by some people. he insults me as a person when he insults my music taste. I even tried to not listen to my music for a while but I missed it. I told him tonight if he really still can't accept me as I am then hed better forget about me and surround himself with good christian people and forget about me the most evil and vile person he knows. I think its best if we went our separate ways, I can't stand being judged by him. He acts all innocent and holier than thou. I'm really hurtFeb 8, 2013
