Matthew Arthur, my friend from down under, joins the show one last time to discuss music and it’s fall from being once written directly for God to now being written directly against Him. In this Part 3 of a 3 part series, we discuss the effects of modern music and how we can battle them in our fight to get closer to God. At the end of the show you can listen to the entire set of songs from the Medieval era to our modern one.

If you have any questions about this show, Matthew would be happy to answer your questions (or hate mail) and you can reach him at: matt.roch.arthur(at)
