One of the most openly Satanic bands in all of rock is Black Sabbath. They have actually given invitations during their concerts for young people to receive Satan. One of their albums, is truthfully titled, “We Sold Our Soul for Rock’n Roll”. Their song N.I.B. (Nativity In Black) is one of the most openly satanic songs ever recorded. It is a love-song from Lucifer, in which Lucifer invites the listener to “please take my hand”, the lyrics:
Some people say MY LOVE cannot be true
Please believe me, MY LOVE, and I’ll show you
I will give you those things you thought unreal . . .
YOUR LOVE FOR ME has just got to be real . . .
Look into my eyes, you will see who I am
MY NAME IS LUCIFER, PLEASE TAKE MY HAND!”
Now surely, it’s NOT POSSIBLE — no CCM group would EVER go that far and do a song by Black Sabbath? Wrong. . . The CCM group, Deliverance, on their album “What A Joke”, have a song by satanist rockers — Black Sabbath — “After Forever!”
Here’s a short list of some so-called Christian Contemporary performers who sing “worldly-secular-rock” songs.

MXPX plays Buddy Holly
Many, many more examples could be given. The Bible clearly commands us to “come out from among them, and be ye separate” and to “touch not the unclean thing” — CCMers not only “touch” it — they “honor” them by singing their songs!
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the UNCLEAN thing; and I will receive you, 2 Cor. 6:17
Where is the CCMers “NEW SONG, even PRAISE unto our God” from Psalms 40?
Why did the same God that gave me, Fanny Crosby, and millions of others a NEW SONG, not do the same for them, as He promised on Psalms 40 and 2 Cor. 5:17? Acts 10:34 says, “. . . God is no respecter of persons”. And I know ONE thing — GOD DOES NOT LIE!
In hope of eternal life, which God, THAT CANNOT LIE, promised before the world began; Titus 1:2
God is not a man, that HE SHOULD LIE; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Numbers 23:19
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become NEW. 2 Corinthians 5:17
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.3 And he hath put a NEW SONG in my mouth, even PRAISE unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Psalm 40:1-3
CHRISTIAN MUSIC IS A NEW SONG — NOT AN OLD SONG.
“When Christian music carries the beat, instrumentation, and exact sounds of the lost crowd, it results in confusion and shame… It is shameful to use musicians who in shallow songs daze instead of praise, who entertain instead of train… They transfer the worship owed to Christ to ‘concert hopping’, money-hungry entertainers who have never left, the world far enough behind to stop sounding like it…”(Shame, a tract by Dr. Hal Webb, pp. 2,4,6)
