Quality, musical creativity shouldn't be relegated to the secular music world. Of all peoples, Christians should be the most creative, ultimately because we know our God made music and also because we are those who should seek to glorify him and praise him with our musical gifts therefore bringing our best to him.
The intention shouldn't be to "make it big." Dr. Moore later writes, "We don't necessarily need the applause of Madison Avenue and Hollywood, and we probably aren't going to get it. We also should avoid rejecting that which the regnant culture dismisses, such as rural people and country folkways. Besides, the most truly transformative art is rarely received by the ambient culture in the lifetime of the artist. And transformative art does not always come from the elite and powerful culture mavens. Think, for instance, of the slave spirituals and Appalachian bluegrass and Russian dissident literature. We should cultivate culture influencers in the same way the apostles cultivated the Christians among the Praetorian Guard and the aristocracy. But at the same time we must remember that most of the apostles themselves were not 'culture-shapers' but commercial fisherman and low-level government contractors. The Christian movement that shaped the cultures of the empires and kingdoms and nations was not made up initially of many who were noble or powerful or even respectable (1 Cor. 1:26)" (Tempted and Tried, 157-158). The aim isn't to be known but to make our God known and enrich the worship of the church. Will you cultivate?
