Some time ago I heard from people that those engaged in the field of gospel music are detached from the Biblical scriptures and esteem music as of more preference than the Bible. Is this statement  justified or it is just a mere hypothesis?

The experience I have gained in the field of Christian/ Gospel Music affirms to me of the correlation between the lyrics of the song and the Biblical verses. The linking of the two is dependent on an artist’s or song-writers’ personal relationship with God. 

Some of the good songs that have helped me learn more about the bible are as indicated below:
NB: Some of these songs borrow from the Biblical scriptures include:
    Better than Life (Accapella)-Based on Psalms 63
    Create in me a Clean Heart-Based on Psalms 51:10-12
    Now to Him who is able to do (Accapella)-Based on Ephesians 3:20
    Four Days Late-Based on John 11:1-26
    Cast your bread upon the water (Southern Gospel)-Ecclesiastes 11:1
    The Lord’s My Shepherd (Hymn)-Based on Psalms 23 and many more

Ephesians 5: 19(KJV)- Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Singing hymns and Psalms to the Lord is recommended in the Bible. Therefore, there should not be a disconnect existing between true Christian/Gospel music and the Bible unless it be called secular music. It should be within the interest of God’s singers and music makers to perform and produce Biblical related music for enhancing true worship in churches.

Did you know that Most artistes began the music art in church but never expanded it use in church. There are good secular songs worth of our education but songs to the Master count highly. Heaven is also counting on you beloved song-writer and musician.
