nowadays, many ppl listen to secular music and r shocked wen they hear its not encouraged in the orthodox church and that i dun 2 it. i listen 2 christian r&b and pop, and dont kno wats so great about secular. secular music, in my opinion, is bad and music videos worse. like abouna maximos sed: secular music is a very bad influence on how we speak and act. if u DO listen to secular, dont be embarassed, i hav a lot of good christian frendz who listen to secular.
