I don't have a problem with it as long as the music is good.

Griftegard is a prime example of this. Anyone that loves doom of the traditional variety should dig these guys.

I also listen to a lot of instrumental music as well. Lyrics can't and don't offend me. Shitty music does.
And with a lot of those bands, you can't understand the words at all unless you actually have the lyrics in front of you and follow along with them. I too could give a fuck less what the lyrics are as long as the musics good. Same with the main topic. I love As I Lay Dying just as much as Dimmu Borgir.

I have no problem with Christianity being in metal.The bible has a lot of cool story's,as people have already said.Just to let everybody know,I am a Christian.Even though I am ,my favorite bands are still Motley Crue,Poison,Helloween,etc.,because the lyrics really don't effect me.All that being said,it's unfortunate that most bands that are labeled "Christian Metal",are not good at all,besides Stryper and Skillet.I prefer bands that use Christianity as an inspiration,that have lyrics that have double meanings (Christian,Secular),but aren't labeled as a "Christian" band,like Switchfoot,Relient K,Anberlin,and U2,of course they are more rock then metal.

Is using spaces after commas and periods a sin too? Goddamn son.

+1

If I really had a problem with the message I just wouldn't pay attention. But if it makes some people happy, whatever.
