If I have to choose between the power of music and believing that God can only be known by one name, I will choose the power of music every time. However, when I am within the context of those who believe in Jesus Christ, I will respect their name. When I am within the context of Yahweh, I will respect their name. When I am within the context of Allah, I will respect their name. Similarly, when I am within the contexts of Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other religious belief system I will respect their relative expressions of God. But when we all get together to express through music and art, I believe semantics for God should be cast aside for the greater cause of united creation, within which lies the true spirit of God.

  1. Religion leaves me cold…but music is a living expression of spirit.

    In the words of Frank Zappa: “Information is not knowledge.
    Knowledge is not wisdom.
    Wisdom is not truth.
    Truth is not beauty.
    Beauty is not love.
    Love is not music.
    Music is THE BEST.”
    — Frank Zappa

    He also said, “If you want to get laid, go to college; if you want an education, go to the library.”
