Christian Pastoral Sermon

Forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong forum. Im not sure where to post something like this. But I was wondering if you guys could include some Christian Pastoral sermons under your "Spoken Word" or Christian Music section. Maybe some of the more reknown Pastors such as Billy Graham, David Jeremiah, Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley, or Ravi Zacharaias just to name a few. Spotify if worth the money I pay every month and it would be even more worth it this was an option. Thanks so much

Sorry I cant type apparently. Spotify IS worth the money I pay every month, and it would be even more worth it IF this was an option.

I think it's a better idea to keep Spotify free of any kind of religion. No disrespect meant to you.

Is that possible? As you say, no disrespect intended towards anyone, but it seems to me that an enormous amount of the music that is out there is already religiously-based, inspired, or related in some way, and that even the music that is purely secular tends to focus on beliefs and passions that could be controversial. Sex, drugs, crime, political revolution, international rivalries, explicit parodies or insults, and a thousand other topics are constantly sung about, all with fervently-held passions that have the potential to offend others.

 

Spotify already offers hymns, monastic chants, prayers in a dozen languages for a hundred different belief systems, as well as hundreds or even thousands of audiobooks on a wide variety of topics, many of which deeply involve religion. This isn't even mentioning the Christmas carols, contemporary Christian music, and other forms of music that don't necessarily conform to any one denomination or religion, but relate to many, some of which don't consider themselves Christian at all. I guess my question is just where you would reasonably draw the line?

 

As for my personal choice, I would happily agree with the first gentleman. Just because a sermon is listed, doesn't mean that you're required to listen to it, or that your Spotify service would be in any way diminished by its presence here.

So you registered to make this one post. Probably a friend of the original poster. :)

 

What is religious-based? That's a good question to one who doesn't believe in any god. I just believe in Good Music. Ofocourse that's a personal choice. Just as religion is. But religion fans always want to convince other people about their beliefs. And it starts with songs / sermon speeches on Spotify, it ends with bibles / korans in your mailbox, or worse.

 

I like passions, i dislike beliefs. They are two different things. Passion is something you feel from the heart, a belief is forced upon you by your family or surroundings. 

 

I am not against religious inspired MUSIC. I love Marvin Gaye's God is Love. But sermon speeches is something completly different. That is a form of brainwashing that i detest and shouldn't be on Spotify at all.

i agree with having sermons, i have been trying to look for some, also. if you do not want to, you do not have to listen to them. very simple. if bad things are out there, so should good things. :)

I don't think that he's trying to force his religion on anyone--it seems that he wants to have sermons on Spotify for his own personal listening purposes. There's a lot of stuff on Spotify, including stuff that's offensive to me personally and stuff that's not music (comedy, spoken word poetry, etc.). Just because it's on there doesn't mean that I need to listen to it, and the sheer volume of content means that I probably won't find myself ever forced to listen to something I don't want to. (Besides ads.) I may be offended by the way that some comedians operate, but that doesn't mean that I think they should be taken off Spotify.
(Additionally, and this is just a side note, not to get too off topic, just because someone believes in God, that doesn't mean it's forced upon them by family or surroundings.)
Anyway, that's just my two cents :)

Hey @calebt777 Spotify wants all the world’s music on Spotify.

 

 

If you'd like to see some Christian Pastoral sermons under "Spoken Word" we definitely think you should make an Idea in the Idea Exchange

 

Other users can then give it feedback and we can pass this on internally. Thanks for your suggestion!
