Easy. "For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. "

What country are you in? The Christian genre is still visible here in New Zealand, so hasn’t been replaced ...

I was floored when I didn't see the Genre listed.  

In the meantime, please accept my playlist suggestion.  God bless you guys

Saw this thread while searching for "band incorrectly labeled as 'explicit'"  I've been listening to the Darrell Mansfield Band and now find that their music is listed as explicit.  Not sure how "Walk with me Jesus" or "People Get Ready" is now explicit...

There are some notes along the way in the forums that say that perhaps the source is marking them that way - but I'm not sure how to find that information.

Any thoughts? (Screen shot below)

 

Thanks -

Why is the Christian genre not able to be found in a search as in previous
years?

It seems I am being marginalised by religion by Spotify.
Is that true?
That's not cool.

I prefer to listen to the Christian Charts - Top 50 Christian Hits.
Where is that Genre?

We petitioned a long time ago for the Christian genre to be restored in New Zealand and some other countries. It was eventually restored by Spotify and is still there. You don’t need to search for it ... it should appear in the list of Genres when you Search (just select Browse All). Hope this helps 🙂

You can still search for Christian playlists. You might also like that.

What's ridiculous is, the rainbow should be on the Christian genre cover art and the word, "Pride" should be used on cover art for U.S. themed playlists, but they're used to push something else. As Christians, ya'll know what the rainbow really represents.

Well, I had a playlist for the Klezmonauts Oy to the World - Xmas carols in klezmer style, and I just discovered it has been deleted. Wondered if it was censored ans non-christian. Now seeing this thread I wonder. I sent a message to Spotify yesterday and got back an automatic response promising a reply. We'll see.

I just checked on Spotify and found that the Christian genre is still there. Have you tried closing and re-opening your Spotify app? I would suggest looking again. Hope you have a great day!

We understand it is still available in some territories but not in Australia, New Zealand and some other places. A change.org petition was started some months ago but in spite of 100s of votes still no movement or clear explanation from Spotify. Can’t understand why something so easy and with widespread community support is so difficult to restore! Spotify - please listen to this community!

Something I also hated with Spotify, is it was rather hard to find types of
Christian music. And, when do you find some songs, playlist, to listen to
while doing your work or like, once played out, it inevitably goes to some
other songs from mainstream music that'd you'd not care to listen to. Read
the signs a bit better of what people are listening to and queue a songs
accordingly (perhaps they are and just like trying being annoying). This is
why I've turned to YouTube more and more and just my own music collection,
Spotify has failed me so...

Christian isn't really a genre. It's a topic. Any genre of music can be 'Christian'

No such thing as a Christian artist, Christian movie, Christian book,
Christian store, hexk ecen Christian person then. Your logic astounds me.
=P Spotify can say goodbye.
